The Emperor Cinema sits in a building called ‘Entertainment Building’, which was completed in 1846 and was the first generation of the Hong Kong Club. In 1928, one of the first cinemas was constructed. Through the stream of time, the building had been alternated, demolished, reconstructed into different uses. Up till now, the third generation in history, a cinema emerged once again.
Every film starts with an idea, then eventually, a sketch. Filmmakers prepare storyboards with detailed drawn scenes, frame by frame. These sketches are stunning just the way they are but are often left unrecognized. In this design, we have shed light on the beauty of sketches through the wide use of stroke-like forms such as arches and curves. Each fragment complements one another to form the full picture, just like how any great film is made.
