Director of the Department of Mass Communication, Huei-chun Chi, expressed, “Mobile technology and film has become the coolest trend of this generation, but it’s still lacking a true education involving technical skills. Taiwan Mobile uses email and fundamental technology to meet with the different needs of enterprises. They especially want to develop digital capabilities, improve software programs and film education to make cell phones more than just cell phones. This camp has invited professional directors, editors and filmmakers to instruct and guide the potential of the young students so that Taiwan will have a more competitive future in terms of technology.”

This is why we’ve worked so hard to create an environment that offers special learning opportunities and internships, which makes this particular event is so meaningful. TKU is a beautiful place with many stories to tell. I hope that in the future we can see the creativity of the students manifested into great films.”
