GAC Students' Movie Makes Audiences Think

<p><font face="Arial">By Wendy Lin<br /> Campus Reporter</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Graphic Arts Communication (GAC) major students tried to encourage people to think and look at things from different angles with their movie &ndash; Turn the Watching, which was shown at Cheng 101 tonight.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">&quot;We are trying to explain the theory by the story &ndash; how a girl with broken legs would change her points of view toward things by traveling,&rdquo; said Li Wei-bo (李韋伯), the director for the film and a sophomore from GAC.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Li, who also wrote the scripts, made his remarks after the premier, which was opened to the public.&nbsp; He said that at GAC, junior students would assign a film theme for sophomores to produce a film for the year.&nbsp; Their assignment for this year is &ldquo;Travel.&rdquo;</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">&quot;I want to make a contradiction in my movie that a person would love to travel while he can&rsquo;t.&nbsp; What would that be?&nbsp; That is why my main character in the movie would be a girl with broken legs,&rdquo; Li explained.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">The GAC sophomore said that his cast came from everywhere in addition to National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) students because he posted an advertisement for audition on the BBS bulletin board.&nbsp; During the shooting, which took the whole semester, Li and his film crew decided the location at a private lodge in Ilan.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">GAC junior Chelsa Pan (潘怡君), who is the producer, said that it was a chance to learn how to work with everybody through the process because unpredictable difficulties would take place at anytime.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">&quot;It is already difficult to get everybody on the set every time because you have to cope with everybody&rsquo;s different schedules,&rdquo; she said.&nbsp; &ldquo;Also, things may not happen as what you thought they should all the time.&nbsp; For instance, you thought you may not need certain props so you decide to leave it behind.&nbsp; But, you actually need it at the location.&rdquo;</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Wavering applauses after the movie affirmed GAC students&rsquo; efforts on the film.&nbsp; Kate Hsu (徐凱筠), a freshman from the Department of Special Education, said that she felt the hearts of the crew.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">&quot;The movie is inspiring,&rdquo; she said.&nbsp; &ldquo;Also, I can tell from the movie that they did spend a lot of time and efforts into it.&rdquo;</font></p>
