Director’s Statement: I think it’s rather amazing what a three man crew can do. Excuse me – what a one-woman-in-charge and two man crew can do! We wanted to tell a story that was fun and relatable, but with a twist. This project tested our creativity (how to be original within the confines of the dialogue) and our ingenuity (how to get great shots when the two cast members also functioned as gaffers and dolly pushers). We also got to use our dog!! And yes, we are those people who talk to their pet as if she is human.
Director’s Bio: Oh, the crazy things I’ve done as an actor to try to be more “Hollywood Asian”: learned an accent (poorly), learned karate (poorly), dyed my hair black (that one was cool). And so, I’ve crossed to the other side of camera in order to create stories with characters that are exactly as Asian as they need to be, whatever that means! I’ve now written and produced a bunch of short films (one of which won the Audience Vote at the HollyShorts Festival in LA). My first feature is in pre-production and I’m writing my second. Yay!
