New Project – Video Essay on Wong Kar-Wai and his portraits of Tony Leung

For a few years now I have become more and more passionate about the work of Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai. Specifically his intimate cinematic portraits featuring Tony Leung in the films; Happy Together, Chunking Express, 2046, and In the Mood for Love. I am primarily interested in creating a poetic video essay about how Kar-Wai creates a singular character out of Tony across 4 films using his voyeuristic style combined with subtle everyday activities featuring close to medium shots of Tony.
As I am cutting up the hours of footage for this video essay I am inspired to create a number of animated gif portraits of Tony myself. Here is one such portrait titled: Tony Drags.
