About

As I begin to write to introduce myself, please imagine me offering you a nice handshake.

Welcome to the site where I share my works – or as others dramatically may claim in movies :
“Welcome to my world.”

Judging by the fact that the website is “margo.today,” you have guessed correctly that my name is Margo. Some may also call me Go, for short. However, my birth name is Soorim – which makes my full name Go Soorim Lee. I would like to think that it really expresses my optimistic views on life.

I am a filmmaker, photographer, writer, producer… Basically, I am a storyteller. I am currently attending Orange County School of the Arts, majoring in Film and Television. I may be young, but that never stopped me from reaching out and doing what I’ve been told since I was a kid : “Follow your dreams.” Southern California is my home as of now, but the dream is to travel further out.

Rather than narrating my entire life, I will end with this note. As I close this introduction, please now imagine me reaching out my hand to you : follow my journey and allow me to tell you a story.

Film

I chose filmmaking because it is extremely collaborative and it allows me to explore countless topics.
It fulfills my curious mind and takes me on unique journeys.
“I think there are advantages to different scales of filmmaking. You wouldn’t want to do just one thing.”
– Christopher Nolan

Stay Connected.

Photography

As the photographer, you capture the moment; A good photographer will be able convey the emotion of the scene in just one shot.
“I try to use whatever I know about photography to be of service to the people I’m photographing.”
– James Nachtwey
