Remarks shared after Festival visit

“I appreciate very much the Hong Kong Arts Centre to provide us with this opportunity to go to this event, although time is rush and we have little time for preparation. The unexpected thing comes out becomes the most unforgettable thing in the journey. Secondly, I do enjoy sharing experience with the local people and creators all over the world. The cultural difference among us inspires us to get more great idea in digital content design. When you realize that there are dozens of buddy around the world, dedicating their lives in digital entertainment with similar goal, it is nothing but the most treasurable impression in the trip. In conclusion, the trip is unforgettable. What can be more exciting to step on the land of strangers, start your adventure and show your work to the people? If you have such a good chance in the coming day, just try your best to catch it.”
