China in 157 Seconds
ESL Teacher and Development Coordinator - Canadian Institute of Business & Technology
When I accepted the offer to teach English in Weifang, China for 6 months, I decided that I wanted to work on a personal project separate from the responsibilities of my position and Arts Co-op. Inspired by a friend and colleague in the Media Studies program at UBC, I had the idea to film 1 second of video footage each day I spent in China. Some of the footage features exciting moments during my stay, and other footage captures the more menial day-to-day sights and activities, creating an authentic and balanced picture of my adventure. I'm excited about how the video turned out, as it paints a visual diary of my time spent in China that I can share with others and look back on fondly.
