“Creating a virtual product isn’t difficult, but making “WOW” content is a total different commodity. I believe building a strong connection with people is the key to creating something unique for you.” – Sean Hsu, Ovis Creative Productions.
Tell us about your journey to becoming a creative (eg. what was your background? Did you train in something different? How did you end up here?)
I graduated from Film School in Taiwan, and have always been passionate about story telling and building the connection between people and the lens. The past 10 years in Margaret River has brought me to understand the culture and people here, which has helped me to create a different side of the perspective from my own culture.
How has your creative practice changed over time?
From the “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” to then be your own creator is the biggest shift in my journey. Lots of inspirational content on social media is my resource. I would say, keep learning and keep trying is the key.
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced working in the creative sector?
To be creative and to always challenge myself. I realise it is hard not to drain too much of my creative brain. I need to be inspired and to be different every time is hard.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Don’t be afraid of missing opportunities. Behind every failure is an opportunity somebody wishes they had missed.
What would your dream project look like, if you had unlimited money and time?
My dream is to make a feature film – a detective mystery musical film.
