Michael Wong: A Masterpiece
An independent film director, Michael Wong keeps audiences either falling in love or hovering on the edge of their seats. Working hard to make his videos new and fresh Michael has created two short films that bring longer movies to their knees. He creates a masterpiece every time.
His nine-minute movie “The Story of 90 Coins” tells the story of how an aspiring fashion designer finds out how much a promise is worth when she has to choose between fulfilling her promise and realizing her own dream.
Starring Han Dongjun as Wang Yuyang, Zhuang Zhiqi as Chen Wen, and Jose Acosta as Andre.

“The Story of 90 Coins” unfolds through a special promise of love and happiness made by one male passionate lover to a seemingly reluctant girl. Ninety coins symbolizes ninety days the guy gives himself to convince the girl to marry him by showing her his true colors and proving his intentions. The two do in fact fall in love, but time passes and the love bubble deflates as reality falls into focus once more.
The short film has won over 60 awards from international film festivals and has been featured multiple times.
The short film reminds watchers “don’t let a promise just be a beautiful memory”. This is the story of a promise, misunderstanding, and regret. The story of 90 coins.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Michael Wong manages to keep audiences terrified instead of in love. His most recent short is only one minute 20 seconds. It’s so short yet holds so much terror and strong storytelling, it puts the two-hour horror films to shame.
His short film “The Tattooist” tells the terrifying tale of an unimaginable evil lurking behind the acclaimed work of a renowned tattoo studio.
Starring Wang Yanhu as The Tattooist; Lu Li as Platinum; Myra Mala as Screaming Girl; Chase Lichtenberg as Guy in Iron Maiden; Simon Shiyamba as Guy in Shackle; Mayela Magrou as Tied Up Girl; and Dan Litza as Guy Behind Bars.

The story of “The Tattooist” follows the very dark obsession of a popular tattoo artist who has intricately crafted tattoos. However, those who receive his prized masterpiece are drugged, imprisoned, and then forced to fight their fears in a race against the clock to escape.
It sounds like the perfect escape room idea.
Being relatively new, the film hasn’t won as many awards as 90 Coins, but is on the rise among horror movie enthusiasts.
Michael Wong manages to keep the audience on the edge of their seats for the shortest amounts of time. This skill helps him create a masterpiece every time.
