Budding young film maker talks to AsiaLIFE
Ho Chi Minh City high school student Elijah McKeogh has big ambitions to follow in the footsteps of his movie-making heroes such as Quentin Tarrantino. With several short films and documentaries already under his belt, his next goal is to make it to the summer program at the prestigious New York Film Academy.
While he has been accepted into the program, the next challenge was to raise the necessary funds. In a great boost to his hopes, the International Shool Ho Chi Minh City, where he is a year 11 student, decided to hire the young auteur to make their official promotional video for the coming year.
Elijah sat down with AsiaLIFE to discuss the making of the video and his plans for the future.
