The Last Bet of My Dead Aunt (2014 Version)

Category: Set Design

Design Statement

It's a Hong Kong local story, a comedy about a man, Luk Wan Ting, who is in trouble with his debt, is frantically searching for a winning lottery ticket that his dead aunt has left behind.

As a crazy local comedy happened in a rural house, the design aimed at color the set with visually contradictions and conflicts. The space is multi-functional with plenty of Hong-kong-style in-jokes such as a exaggerated-scale "Mark Six" lottery machine (a big marble game machine), a imitation of traditional local altar and even a scene of Nobel Prize Award Ceremony at the end. The design is a spacial collage of traditions and post-moderns, rural and cityscapes, funniness and bitterness, as a reflection of Hong Kong's complicated and tangled social phenomenon.
