導演洪詩婷從小就喜愛著柯琳的服裝設計，從《剪刀手愛德華》，《沉默的羔羊》，《費城》到《怪獸與它們的產地》，細膩地反映著對角色的尊重。這回與冰島天團Of Monsters & Men合作，詩婷提到與柯琳的角色對話：「這隻MV是個關於ㄧ個女孩變回白鱷魚的故事，有濃厚的女性自我解放味。我們深入角色，以軟性鱷魚＋蛇皮思考。柯琳最後設計了件柔美類似白紗的服裝，代表社會對女性的極致要求。我們更進ㄧ步與鋼鐵人的特效公司合作，一起設計這隻白鱷魚。與這樣的劇組組合，讓我看到最高等的電影工作者如何思考執行工作，他們的專業與熱情，讓我燃燒！這只冰島的片，拍得很辛苦很辛苦，但卻是我們人生中印象最深刻的片之一，Legacy Studio 的 Shane Mahan，是業界我非常尊敬的SFX特效前輩，有他們在，是ㄧ個導演最幸福的事。」

The "Mise-en-Scène" of Shih-Ting Hung's Solo Exhibition, " Portrait of Brains "
Hung's solo exhibition is a dramatic combination of cinema, theater, animation, and music. This dark, subconsciousness driven, emotional, and yet "Ludovico Einaudi" atmosphere is heavily charged in the foggy exhibition space. Hung has demonstrated how films and music videos take place in modern museum by submerging the environment with fog, water, staging grass and classroom chairs. The wood flour smell, the moisture of blurry air makes it an exceptional experience that is hard to get in movie theaters.
洪詩婷此次個展可謂是個電影、動畫、新媒體、音樂與裝置的跨領域展覽。身為電影導演，三件作品的展覽形式都充滿了電影感；而電影的創作對於「場面調度」（Mise-en-scene）的重要性也充分展現在展場空間的裝置性上。場面調度在法文裏的意義是「排成場景」（Made Into a Scene）或「放在位置上」（Put in Place）。簡言之，即是對舞台上／景框中視覺元素的安排。
