Mei Dong

Director // Producer // Writer

I received my BFA degree in Film from California College of the Arts (CCA) in May 2016. In April 2019, I will receive my MFA degree in Film from Art Center College of Design. It’s time to start a new journey. Before coming to the US, I worked as an advanced camera tracker for a post-production company, Base Fx, Beijing, for two years. I obtained a lot of experience in film post-production. Working on other people’s films motivated me to make my own films.

I view myself as a Narrative/Commercial Director. I entertain audience through emotional connections. I have developed the ability to write and to direct. I have strong desire to celebrate the power of imagination and keep the idea small but effective. The significant elements in my filmmaking are time and space, conveying different simultaneous situations occurring in different places, which illustrate universal connections and their ripple effects. As a filmmaker, I enjoy the challenge of depicting my characters’ personalities, lives, choices, and destinies.
