"The varying emotion is essential to complete us as special human beings,
and we are here to feel and relive it with moving pictures"
Colourist. Camera Operator. Video Artist.
Anson is a college graduate in Communications from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2019, and is keen to explore and visualise different emotions in the art of moving pictures. He believes that emotion is the essence of how human beings experience and make sense of our lives. Anson genuinely sees the powerfulness of video to help audiences reminisce about their past and relive different moments, which is the core of his works.
Currently based in London, Anson has extensive production experience in Hong Kong and the United States, ranging from filming narratives, documentaries and online content to colouring. He has been working as a freelance colourist and camera operator for creative inspiration. His first short and graduation film 'Roundabout' was selected as Honorary Mention in the Sundance Film Festival 2019 Hong Kong, and 'A Road to A Village', his first feature-film colouring work, was selected in both Toronto and Busan International Film Festivals in 2023, a huge international recognition of the work.
Anson Cheng Visuals (ACV) was established in 2020 for the creative mission, as well as the website to share his works and related stories. He is currently looking for creative collaborations to enrich his experience. Check out the blog posts to learn creative stories behind the projects, or email for details or project collaborations.
