Lionhead

Dir. Alvin Yu
Role: Sound Designer 
Mix: 5.1

It’s Chinese New Year in a small parish town where a teenage British-Chinese lion dancer strikes up an unlikely friendship with the most popular girl in his class. Prepared to shun the centuries long wu-shi folk dance of his forefathers in favour of the neon lights of a house party, he must come to terms with his shame towards his own traditions before it’s too late.

The short film Lionhead, produced as part of NFTS and Star Imagine UK shorts incubator had its world premiere in official selection at the BFI London Film Festival

About:

A versatile sound designer with the capacity to communicate through story and concept, and deliver a techically sophisticated and bespoke soundtrack.

I’ve just graduated from a Masters in Sound Design for Film at the National Film & Television School. The NFTS functions more as a studio than a school, and this has afforded me the opportunity to hone my work to a high standard, further my proficency on industry level equipment and applying my instinct for creative collaboration across a broad range of forms and genres.

I believe the soundtrack of a film can reach it’s highest potential when it’s role is developed throughout the process of each project. As such I am interested in collaborating at all stages of the film.
