Welcome to

Only through art can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees.

Arts without Boundary

For many years, albeit some of our members did work as freelance, we've taken video just for fun. Video production was too professional for ordinary people. Let alone movie taking, playing back the wheels of film was a nightmare to novice. We had little chance to share them with other people. The great leap-forward of digital technology has empowered everybody simple, practical and affordable equipments for creating his or her own video in a much easier way. Even a cell phone has a built-in video camera capable of taking video as good as the obsolete but expensive super eight film camera for amateur cine maker. Every body now become a witness as well as a reporter of the great issue at the great moment. Moreover, with the internet, all people in the world can now be your audience seeing what you've seen and hearing what you've heard. We believe that the nature and actual life are the essence of art which will bring inspiration to the artist and vigor to his work in the process of creation.  All these video created by our colleagues are now released to the pubic free of charge under our "UM Free Art License". 
However, some of the video clips  contain the sound or image of identifiable person or entity. They may not be suitable for  making unauthorized derivatives. To avoid abuse or obsession, we show the vids using streaming technology. Please do not circumvent the protection against unauthorized download and respect the person or entity involved.
These are only part of our portfolio. We keep working on the authoring of our archives and releasing them to the public from time to time. As what we believe in still pictures, they are not just  some kind of artwork but may serve as documentation of the development of our world in the last few decades. Just click and view.
