My mission is to challenge viewers across the world through messages and themes that are universally relevant.
Enjoy my showreel, featuring some of my narrative works! My works so far have focused on exploring obsession, absence and letting go. With a love for poetry and writing poems, I strive to create poetic pictures.
I am also a freelance video content producer, experienced in filming and editing ads, live conferences, informative and educational videos.
Well, why is my mission ‘challenging viewers across the world through messages and themes that are universally relevant’? I have found the most comforting films to be about characters and emotions that anyone of any age, race, gender can relate to. Overtime, I learnt that this could be done through worldly messages and universal themes.
Thus, I crave to learn about the different cultures across the world to help me craft stories that everyone can connect with. Melbourne where I reside, has a wide diversity of ethnicities, and provides endless opportunities to make friends from various cultures. My aim is to continue widening my understanding of people to help you rediscover something about yourself in my films.
Lastly, my Korean name is 이성민/Sungmin Lee, but I grew up using Sam Lee for its simpler pronunciation. When I decided what my mission as a filmmaker was, I added my Korean name to make it Sam Sungmin Lee. My English and Korean name together represent my voice as a cross cultural filmmaker. Perhaps it was my connection to two cultures that shaped my mission.
