Masterstudiengang Digital Narratives
Born in the north-east region of mainland China in 1994, Handuo Zhang officially started his Film/Art studies at the age of 18 at the Emily Carr University of Art&Design in Vancouver, Canada. By then filmmaking was his main focus. During the four years’ program, he put effort focused on the academic and practical sides of fine art. Those experiences influenced his perspective to film as not only a tool for storytelling, but a media that has the energy to pass on abstract and instinctive information. Handuo created his graduation short film with this understanding. Later on he worked for the film/art studio In The Trench Productions for two years, where he gained experiences on curating, filmmaking, constructing, handcrafting, solar panel installing, etc. After knowing the limitation of staying in Vancouver, he chose to start a new life in Germany and applied to the ifs’ Master’s program »Digital Narratives«.
