One night, nearly four years ago, Whitney Duan left her apartment in Beijing and disappeared without trace. She left behind a young child to be raised by his father, Chinese entrepenur Desmond Shum.
In the explosive new book ‘Red Roulette”, we discover the truth about power in China today and what really happened to her. For the first time we see behind the curtain of Chinese government and what is revealed is surprising and at times shocking.
Desmond came to us to make a trailer film and social media content to promote the book. Using a mixture of high-end motion graphics, archive material, and a location shoot, we brought the story to life for the online audience. Desmond is an amazing figure – brave and bold but also intelligent and insightful.
