PRODUCTION TEAM

Muris is a Taipei-based creative studio focused on filmmaking in the innovation sector, founded by Mu-Ming Tsai and Iris Lai in San Francisco. We are the team behind three award-winning documentaries: Design & Thinking (2012), Maker (2014), and Hanzi (2017). Three films had been shown in multiple countries around the world, including screenings at Google, Twitter, Harvard, and numerous film festivals like CPH:DOX, Belfast, Sidewalk and Balinale. We used crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and social media paired with self-distribution, expanding the possibilities of how documentaries are funded and produced in Taiwan but distributed internationally. 

Having worked and lived in San Francisco, we had the opportunity to experience indie filmmaking and startup culture first hand, and loved how people could make deeply personal films in all genres under limited resources. With that independent spirit in mind, we set out to write and produce our first feature narrative film - Paradoxical (2018).
