I’ll Make A Man Out Of You (Remix Project)

One of our projects for IML501 was to do a remix. I got to go back to my filmmaking roots. Well, I didn’t actually shoot any of this footage, but it felt nice to flex my editing muscles again. This is one of the first remixes I’ve done, and I chose to explore a theme I’m not all that familiar with – Asian American masculinity. The music is from Dawen‘s first full-length album, “American Me.” The track that I used is called “Wake Up” – a plea for the world to be more aware of the presence of Asian faces in America, and the ways in which we stereotype people through what we see in the media.

Here’s a rough cut of the remix for now:
