I admit it was with some trepidation that I watched my video feedback to my movie. To my great relief I found all the comments were intelligent, perceptive, thoughtful and the people commenting heard the message I was trying to convey. They were also tactfully positive. Perhaps they realise that filmakers are artists, and respond much better to encouragement than critisicm. So yes, I have found this process very worthwhile. Thank you.

It was amazing to get the feedback of the audience and the organizing committee did a great job to hold private screenings given the current situation. The video is well-edited and I appreciate it so much. Definitely recommend!

Director Biography – Sunny Wai Yan Chan (GODSPEED)

F241480689 headshot

Sunny is born and raised in Hong Kong. After finishing his bachelor’s degree in Surveying at The University of Hong Kong, he decided to pursue his dream in animation. He is currently an animation student based in the United States, studying Master of Fine Arts in Animation at Savannah College of Art and Design, focusing on 3D character animation and layout.

Director Statement

Through Godspeed, I want to bring the audience close to the internal thoughts of the main characters – Emma, the mother, and Wayne, the son. The motivation for me to create Godspeed is that I want to show the kind of love that is less direct and less obvious. Whenever we feel frustrated towards our family because of the lack of expressive love, we must re-evaluate ourselves and learn to care about love that is more than superficial. Love exists in all kinds of ways.
