Bom fim de semana

San Francisco shelter-in-place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Driving through San Francisco during the pandemic is jaw dropping. Thankfully few people are outside (I wasn't even close to a person), but seeing the shops boarded up is tough to see. I made sure the drone wasn't a nuisance to anyone while shooting this short documentary of this...very weird time in San Francisco.


A man goes on a journey for a slice of apple pie.

Dancing Dream

Dancing Dream (Director's Cut) from Beryl Chen on Vimeo.

It's a short film about two musicians narrate the story of their own concert-hall dreams.

Story was created first, then the music.
I wrote down emotions of each paragraph on the side
trying to convey ideas and help people imagine what music can possibly be.

After few times of back and forth with Andy Lin, we had a version of the story that we both agreed with. He found the composer to compose the music.

Thanks so much to the whole team and
also many many thanks to those friends who came to the shoot or supported me during the whole process.

Director Statement.
Epoch is a visual representation of our connection to earth and it's vulnerable glory.
Our time here is esoteric, limited and intangible.
The fragility which exists in all aspects of life is one thing that is certain.
We are brittle, and so is Mother Earth.
