Rob Chiu has worked under the alias of The Ronin for 7 years in the field of motion design working for clients such as the BBC, Channel 4, idN, Filmmakers Entertainment and Digital Kitchen.
His short narrative based films have been featured in a number of film festivals including Edinburgh, OneDotZero and Resfest while gaining awards along the way.
He has given talks on his work at various design conferences such as Adobe Max, OFFF, FMX and Toca Me and is regularly invited to run workshops at Universities and institutions around the world.
Inspired by film, travel, and music, Chiu is constantly creating evocative stories with his work currently represented by Paris based Mr Hyde and New York's Curious Pictures.
This year I will be talking about the six month process behind writing, directing, editing and post production of a short film entitled Fear/Love that I am currently finishing.
I will also touch on moving away from entirely animation based pieces into full live action directing and also be speaking about the creation of the soundtrack which is a joint collaboration between Ben Lukas Boysen aka Hecq and Cello player Lucio Amanti.
