Wenrui "Sam" Fan 2017 The CAS Award was a great confidence boost for me as a young starter. Afterward, I worked and learned with 424 Post. All the 424 Post people treated me like family and it was a great experience for me to learn and build my craft from all the veterans, like Kami Asgar, Sean McCormack, Tim Tuchrello, Ben Cook, Rob Chen…There are so many that have helped me during the past couple years and guided me to see the whole picture and think through different perspectives. In 2018, I had some visa issues that forced me to go back to my hometown for almost a year. But I quickly built up the relations with local sound mixers and sound supervisors in Beijing. It was one of the busiest years for me. The most unforgettable project for me in 2018 Here Sam is seen mixing the film The Sea with the sound supervi- sor Chen Xu (left) and director Degena Yun (middle) at the Beijing Film Academy last June. The Sea became the Tokyo Film Festival's opening film. 32 W I N T E R 2 0 1 9 C A S Q U A R T E R L Y Previous CAS Student Recognition Award Recipients
