She only knows the concepts and metaphors, themes and motifs, of a film, but she never really knew what it’s like being in a proper behind-the-scenes work. Being at this year’s film camp, working and learning from professionals, she hope to increase and enhance her knowledge on making a film; from pre- production, production, and post-production.
