Project 1 Walking Home 2

Video Link:

Honestly, I wasn’t familiar with video editing at all so this project was quite challenging for me…but here was my concept:

Following up part one of the project of home being a feeling rather than a place, I created a narrative between the protagonist aka me, and a cat(my pet/friend back in home)

It was like letters from protagonist, who left home starting new life in new place, to the cat. Through the letters, the viewers can understand the journey of getting used to a new place and feel at home as well as the protagonist’s idea of home:

Home is being comfortable and feel safe, familiarity of the surroundings and importantly, some company e.g. friends, whether they are there or not, and in this case,the pen friend cat.

Though I tried to differentiate two sides of the conversation by varying the text colors…audience seemed to view it as a cat perspective’s monologue, which was something I needed to work on more and improve.

Also, even though I was rethinking the sounds for the video, I still decided to go without it. I would prefer it to be silent to make the viewers feel that they are actually reading letters and photos attached with the letters rather than some audio book where sounds can be quite distracting.


4D Project II 1 Walking Home 1-Home Is How You Feel


For me, home is not a location or a specific place. Although home is often associated with hometown and family, for me, home is more of the feeling. It’s the feeling of being at ease and no pressure.1

The comfort of the warm and soft blanket is home. Home is where you take a rest and recover from the outside world.


The warm and yellowish light reminds me of home as well. The refrigerator light is always very soothing.


A bowl of rice means a meal. Having food is satisfying and brings good mood.


The stripy bag is from my hometown for traveling package. It being there is telling me that I have a place to go back and it gives me security and confidence.


The steamy and dreamy atmosphere is also homey for me.


The water drips. When I am feeling at home, I enjoy observing small details around me and experience the passing of  time slowly.


Being at home means relaxing for me. Lying down on bed and starting at the rotating fan and hearing the sounds of it is homey as well.


Being able to do things that I enjoy is also great.
