A Lonely Trip
Award for Outstanding Presentation of Thailand – The Mighty Mekong at Thailand International Film Destination Festival
His first shooting experience was in 2007 working as an actor in a commercial for Pepsi. Since then, he knew that his thing was to be on a film set but not in front of the camera because of his few interpretive skills. He graduated in Audiovisual Communication at the Ramon Llull University and did a Master’s Degree in Film Directing and Scriptwriting at Bande à Part film School. He is currently finishing a Master’s Degree in Cinematography at EFTI thanks to a scholarship obtained out of 380 participants.
Jiajie’s short films, A Lonely Trip (2014) and Blissful City (2015), have been awarded two consecutive occasions by Thailand International Film Destination Festival. Both projects were part of Amazing Thailand Film Challenge, a contest in which directors from different parts of the world took on the challenge of filming and delivering a short film in just 5 days, with a crew of 2 people. His latest short film Aliens (2016) filmed in Benidorm, has been selected in 30 international and national festivals around the world, such as Malaga Film Festival, Sant Joan D’Alacant Film Festival or Santiago de Compostela International Film Festival – Curtocircuito, all of them qualifiers for the Goya Awards.
Jiajie stands out for its stylized and elegant atmospheres, a strong sense of aesthetics and a very careful sound design. His projects usually have an unconventional narrative, seeking to generate sensations, creating immersive and hypnotic scenes. He enjoys telling moving stories with a subtle oriental essence.
