BTLC is a short film Keith, Shawn, and I worked on back on Halloween weekend in 2008. Thanks to the graciousness of Joe Price, who directed the film, we're able to make this hilarious short public for you all to see. It's essentially a big parody/homage to asian films that get butchered up and redubbed by american editors. Along the way there's a lesson, I think?
Danny, a meek and mild-mannered guy, struggles with Asian-American stereotypes as he tries to impress his girlfriend Sue while introducing her to his grandfather. Along the way, Danny must cope with being harassed by Tan, leader of the local gang, the "Little Cocks" and is forced to fight for Sue's honor. Will Danny find the courage to fight back against Tan and the Little Cocks? Or will he succumb to his own meek personality?
