—  About


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 in 2010, Muris is more than a production studio, but also a group of people who're interested in democratizing knowledge.

In 2011, Muris collaborated with Yuhsiu Yang and Melissa Huang, and produced the award winning "Design & Thinking," a documentary on design thinking, and successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2011, released and fully fulfilled in 2012.

In the following years, we continued to produce innovation-related films, including "Maker" (2014), a documentary on the maker movement, and "Hanzi" (2018), a documentary on Chinese typography. They're all funded and fully fulfilled on Kickstarter. 

After three documentaries, we set out to write and produce our first feature narrative film, challenging ourselves to a different way of storytelling. “Paradoxical” (2018) is an independent science fiction film from Taiwan, and won the Best Time Travel Movie Award in Boston Sci-Fi FIlm Festival. 

These films were all self-financed and self-distributed internationally, because we believe in an unadulterated vision and independent spirit. We hope you enjoy them as well, and find them as powerful and thought-provoking as we did.
