《茶》Tea, 1'30", 2016
Tea is an experimental short horror film which visualises a stream of imagination that subverts the general elegant and peaceful impressions of tea. For instance, the dangerous-looking blood-red hue of black tea and green tea's association with Japanese culture led to the imagery of geisha; their signature red lips are reminiscent of uncanniness and horror.  The film was nominated for the Youth Category in The 22nd IFVA Awards and was publicly-screened at Hong Kong Arts Centre Cinema in 2017.

Timeless Aftertaste - The Seventh Seal, 7'01", 2020
Timeless Aftertaste is a short film re-narrating and preserving memorable elements of the B&W film The Seventh Seal (1957, Ingmar Bergman) using four unfired stoneware sculptural bowls. "I'll remember this moment.": In the midst of the protagonist Antonius' existential crisis, he felt content while sharing fresh strawberries and milk served in a wooden serving bowl with an entertainer couple. The serving bowl form is then reinterpreted in clay with sculptural elements to document the four timeless aftertastes gathered from the film: frame, emotion, texture and line. Merging visuals of the bowls with the original film's audio, the short film encourages the audience to empathise with the characters' experiences from different perspectives.
