Director's Club Interviews: Mfly_88

Monday, June 18th, 2007

We’re back with another feature, this time with an already popular video and a very informative interview with mfly_88. Her video is called “SANRIO loves the WORLD…” and we are proud to present it as not only a very creative video, but also a very meaningful one. Enjoy!

DC: What was the message behind your video, “SANRIO loves the WORLD…”?
M:
Through the video “Sanrio loves the WORLD…”, I wish to express my message to people around the world about children worldwide who are suffering right now, who are just innocent victims of the society. As a teen myself, I know that I am very fortunate to experience Love and Care from others and to be provided with life in which conditions, satisfy my rights. I want to tell people that there are much more children than we ever imagined who are victims of abandonment, poverty, right abuse, etc.. They are the same with me, and with other children, hence, they also should be given a chance to enjoy and witness the beauty of life itself. In connection to Sanrio, I admire the way Sanrio tries it’s best to help children. Such as coordinating with the Unicef. They are role models to citizens who wish to create a better world for all of us.

DC: What inspired you to make your videos?
M:
My life itself inspire me to make my videos and also my dreams. Usually, when making videos, i don’t have the precise idea yet, but when the question “What would I do to make a better world?” pops into my head, I thought that in my own little way, I could help and share my ideas with people around the world. Part of my life is my dream. It’s my dream to help people, so I really do what I can to reach out to realize it. My family, because since my life is colored by people around me who loves me, I wish other people like me to experience that feeling too. Most of all, by ife itself, just because life should be made enjoyable and colorful to everyone, so I just want to let them feel that they are loved, they are being cared about and they have beautiful lives awaiting for them.

DC: Would you recommend using Dream Studio to your family and friends?
M:
Yes, of course, I would like them to express themselves through Dream Studio like I am as much as possible and to let them experience this wonderful chance to share ideas with people.

DC: Will you make another Dream Studio video again soon? When?
M:
Yes, that would be my honor, I guess that the idea is still unclear, but I’ll just listen to my heart and what it wants to express. Watch out for my upcoming one though!

DC: Do you have dreams of directing films in the future?
M: I guess that it’s not impossible, since I am an art-lover. I also enjoy movies and films especially ones that are incredible! Since you guys asked, who knows, maybe I’ll pursue that dream someday.

DC: Do you think Dream Studio can be a good training ground for directing?
M:
Yes, it is! I actually made my first video here, so I really appreciate that Dream Studio had given me a chance to discover a new side of me. I hope though that people will also enjoy making videos like I do!

DC: What topics do you mostly like to make videos about?
M:
Sometimes, I am not even sure of what topics to make, but I believe in what i feel so i oftenly express what i love , just like Sanrio! Specifically, I would love to focus on Beauty of life (that gives me an idea though…hmm) because life for me is perfect, just the way it is.

DC: How has Dream Studio helped you to express yourself?
M:
Alot! It helped me to express my self in a new way that I never tried before. I think it’s fun and inspiring for me each time I make a video since I enjoy it a lot and the way I see it, it serves as a big beautiful bag of letters to other people from me.

DC: Have other users’ comments helped you?
M:
Yes, I usually ask them to comment about it since I really like to hear their ideas about my video also to improve on it. I specifically want to thank them because their comments helped me alot since my first make of “Sanrio LOVE…”.

DC: Are there videos from other users that you enjoy?
M:
Yes, I like watching other people’s videos because it really expresses their own thoughts and messages. I really think the personalized ones are just sweet and it really shouts out L-O-V-E!

DC: Do you look at other peoples’ videos for ideas and for inspiration?
M:
Sometimes, because I think that it’s nesessary to look at life the way other people see it, so that i may be better in expressing my thoughts in making my videos. I also try interesting ideas that are new to me. Those ideas sometimes helped me discover a part of me that I never knew I had.

DC: How do you find Dream Studio’s features in terms of ease and functionality?
M:
I find it very comfortable to work with. I also am able to look for the effects that match the feelings i entrust upon my videos. I like the effects alot, especially the ones in the “screen transitions” area. I also like the sparkle effect, it’s just so dreamy.

DC: Do you have any suggestions on how Dream Studio can be improved?
M:
I would personally specify providing new creative effects and ones that have something to do with video clips because I am currently trying my best to make one with motion picture.

DC: Are there any tips you can give to Dream Studio users?
M:
I would also like to tell other users to just relax while making your video and plenty of good ideas with come popping up to your mind and just feel free to express how you feel and what you want others to feel about your video. Adding effects such as sound and slide effects helps you magnify on the feelings you want to put on your video, just let it flow thru you and let it speak for itself!
