Cinthia Chen, Production Designer
Cinthia Chen was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. She just closed her first play, a one-Act live cinema show about Anna May Wong called “Anna May Wong - The Actress Who Died a Thousand Deaths.” She encouraged Ben to pursue Off Season as a project after the two took a trip to Italy to plan their next year’s projects. Cinthia's play and Off Season are the results. Cinthia has served as the production designer for several short films, and is about to start on another short film shooting this summer. She also makes dance films and loves Wong Kar Wai (almost) as much as Ben does. In preparation for Off Season, Cinthia looked at films like Winters Bone as well as the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop. She also spent a lot of time on the farm with Ben, making Christmas decorations and building a homeless camp.
