Chinese interview with Mr. Wong Yuk Man (黃毓民) in Calgary

A friend gave me the idea of doing videos of Chinese people. First of all because i can't understand one word of it and it would be grate to see some emotions on a face that isn't that familiar. It's important to remember that oriental culture is very different from the western one. For example when showed a disgusting video an oriental will not show his emotions in public because it's not customary. Still it will be interesting to see what we can get from a small video.

The video in question is this one:


1) 00:00:04 / defensive stance - he isn't confident about the interview or he is just not comfortable being asked all the question /
Photobucket

2) 00:00:44 - 2 seconds / he gained confidence by being more open to the person who interviews him /
Photobucket

3) 00:00:52 - 5 seconds / he started to gesture about what he was saying /
Photobucket

4) 00:01:03 -2 seconds / a very particular nose pick after settings his glasses. touching your nose is a gesture intended to calm yourself but i never saw it done this way /
Photobucket

4) 00:01:20 / disgust or slight anger showed in the lower part of the face - this face actually means that he is says OK or agrees with someone but he is not satisfied by the situation /
Photobucket

I will do the rest of the video later. I'm running out of videos so i must use my limited resources as much as i can. It's not that i don't have videos but only a few of them so a lot of emotions. And for now i just want to show the emotions on people faces. For example in this video i only seen only one... the rest where body movements.
