On the screen, is a helpless, eyes around nowhere to put, very frightened person, he has a tumour with pus. In the upper left corner of the screen, notifications keep appearing, like “Time Management Master?”  “I didn’t think you were such a person!  “”Go to hell!  “The scum”. The number of notifications is 100 plus

The car attendant pushed the car to the door of the electronic view, and then the door opened automatically, and he continued to push it in a hurry.

2. Inside the Electronic Vision Hall

When the carer entered the hall, he saw the scene in front of him and froze for a moment. In the distance of his field of vision is a huge yuan-day honour, he can even see the lower body of the giant statue from a flat angle, when he looked up, he could not see the appearance of heaven, covered by many lanterns.  At this time, on the side of the statue came a Taoist / Taoist with Buddha dust, who bowed to the Taoist, pushed the medical stretcher into the middle of the hall, and stood up 60 degrees. The Taoist went up and looked at the screen man, his fingers touching his pus, and he sensed the fission and growth of the cells (some texture). At the same time, came to the digital world.

The main purpose of the second play is to show the indoor scene, through the environment and props to reflect the Taoist version of Cyber Punk, the future of Asia, the emergence of the minor character Taoist, Taoist will touch the pus, which is a key. The mood of the scene should be, finally entered this temple, finally saved. Calm down from the urgency, hopeful, but full of mystery.

Lens: You can choose a lot of foreground mask angle to design the lens, and the way the Taoist appears, are from the masking to the object, mysterious and unknown.

3. Digital world

In this endless space, countless protagonists, standing, some smiling repeatedly, some greeting people, some holding wine glasses in the action of toasting, each image looks very positive. Suddenly, the main character in front of him fell to the ground, like a power cut or a sudden myocardial infarction. Behind him was a chaotic-looking, well-dressed, erotic-looking protagonist. The exposed protagonist is different from everyone else, he doesn’t look so sunny, he looks around, helplessly wants to walk to other people, but every time he walks up to someone else, just reaches out, he falls to the ground.

The main purpose of the play is to explain that the exposed protagonists will cause the death of the other protagonists around them, like a virus that erodes others. The atmosphere of the world is cold and absurd (a loop that embodies the repetition of each protagonist making an action).

Lens: To a stable push and pull and move lens mainly, but not hand-held, is stable.
