Hi, I'm ssidey. You can call me Dan.
I'm a film student hailing from Singapore. I study pre-production, production and post-production, though I primarily specialize in post-production. I chose this path at a young age.
Put simply, my hobby was recording and editing gameplay videos. I ran a YouTube channel with hundreds of gameplay videos uploaded. Mostly simplistic, as it was just that - a hobby.
What really set me on the path of becoming a film student was the original 1979 film (Alien) by Ridley Scott. It intrigued me tremendously on how special effects were done, as well as the production and lighting techniques used throughout the film. To this day, it remains one of my favorite films of all time.
As such, I have a big interest in motion graphics, graphics design and visual effects.
I primarily use Adobe AfterEffects and Photoshop CS6 for all my images/animations. I do 2D video game special effects, photo manipulations, and general beauty enhancement of images.
I have a more macabre side that enjoys the DiD concept; I don't consider myself a hardcore BDSM fetishist, more of a softcore one. While DiD was one of my motivations for learning film, it wasn't the main; it was just a nice bonus, so to speak. You will not see any extreme depictions of bondage, and most importantly, no nudity - I find nudity too forced and distasteful. I prefer to imply and tease.
Besides, I prefer fashion and clothing rather than full frontal nudity.
