Former banker Jennifer Thym has always wanted to make films. The 35-year-old American-Chinese quit her job two years ago to pursue her lifelong dream, drawing US$50,000 from her own account. The result is Lumina, an original web series shot and produced in Hong Kong. In this interview, Thym discusses production on Lumina and why she chose digital distribution over traditional routes.
A second season of Lumina is in the works with JuJu Chan and Michael Chan. Look for more viewer interactivity in Season 2.
