Dusk of Dawn by Ryan Tian

Dusk of Dawn The pandemic hits the world extensively and deeply. It has a huge impact on each of us. All of sudden, it changes everyone’s life. We have to get used to being quarantined at home, virtual communication, social distancing, face masks, and more, which we might haven’t thought about that they would become an essential part of our daily life.

The shift and uncertainty bring us fear, anxiety, and pressure. However, hope is always there. There is always a way to get through a tough time. I came up with a short film idea called Dusk of Dawn. It feels exactly like the darkest hour before the dawn coming. We are facing the uncertain darkness of the pandemic. The roaring death number of Covid-19 from all over the world is terrifying. All kinds of sad news overwhelm every person.

However, as an individual, we are not fighting against this Covid-19 virus alone. No matter where we are, where we come from, and who we are, we should be united as one. There are borders between countries. There shouldn’t be any borders between each human being. As one, we will win this invisible war together.

The darkest hour will pass.

And the dawn is coming.
