Director Statement

Love Never Forgets deals with a Chinese-American, single-parent family dealing with a loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, seen from the perspective of a five-year-old child.

To accomplish this I kept the camera very low and would often use low angles only seen from a child’s perspective. We see James’ relationship with his Nana established from the very beginning as they celebrate his 5th birthday. She forgets how old he is and it is played off without a second thought. However, with each interaction the audience; as well as, James begins to notice something is wrong with his grandmother. Lynn, the story writer, and I kept classic child-like tropes such as being hyper observant, asking direct questions, yet being the last ones to be given information due to age or inability to understand.

Creating the atmosphere was tricky. I had a hard time deciding on the final color grading for the film because I didn’t want it to be the typical child friendly hyper saturation or depressing desaturated blue, so we went with a more natural look so the audience could just feel that this was a real situation with real people.

However, from the start I knew what style of music I wanted and was very happy with my choice in composers. Asaf did an amazing job by creating a happy, yet somber theme for the film.

I hope everyone enjoys the film and, at the very least, it inspires people to spend a little more was a real situation with real people.
