FILM: THE COOLEST CLUB
Shen (Sandy) Sheng-Ting discovers her love for film in 2010; she made her first short film with Windows Movie Maker. After that, she has not stopped telling stories through moving pictures.
She first started working as a camera assistant in Taiwan Public Television Service (PTS), then becomes an editor which she works on short films, documentaries, and commercials. In 2019, she came to New York, studied MFA Film at The City College of New York, and pursued her dream to become a filmmaker.
Sheng-Ting enjoys all kinds of genres. She particularly loves to tell stories in a dark and comedic way. Her latest short film, "The Coolest Club" uses dark comedy to bring out the stupidness and shallowness of people wanting to be accepted.
The Coolest Club follows Simon, a video game nerd struggling to be seen in this world. He joins a support group: The Coolest Club. He then faces the fact that he is not as cool as other club members. How far will Simon go to prove that he is also cool enough to be in The Coolest Club?
