As a young person, Jolinna Ang thought she wanted to be a writer, however at some point she realised what she really wanted to be was a storyteller. Throughout her childhood, she spent a lot of time listening to stories her father creates and started visualising the images of them in her head. She is fascinated by real human stories of surrealistic nature. She chose film as a medium to tell stories because she believes that films are able to shape minds and provide people with an alternative perspective of life.
Since enrolling in The Puttnam School of Film and choosing cinematography as her major, storytelling has been a way of providing alternative answers to her curious mind about the universe.
Shooting the thesis film, Farewell Summer, Jolinna was able to exercise both her storytelling and cinematography skills. Because of the nature of the story, death was the sensitive yet inevitable peak of the film; Jolinna was able to explore the complex emotions of human beings and the insignificance of life. Farewell Summer is heavily reliant on the mood and atmosphere of the image that is created through the camera. Stories are part of our lives and life in itself is unconventional, which Jolinna has made it her duty to capture them one frame at a time. As an aspiring filmmaker, Jolinna has come to gain experience on many spectrums. Progression is her goal, whether it is individual or collective. She is always interested in collaborating with those who are passionate about their craft, be it in film or other forms.
