Anyone who knows me knows that I tend to go on these creative hibernations where no one sees nor hears from me for weeks, even months, at a time. Even normally, unless it's someone's birthday, or an old friend is in town, I tend to stay in to edit, write, read, watch movies, pretty much anything to get better and learn more about my craft. I figure that people who are better/way more successful than me are working just as hard if not harder, so how could I just hang out? I know, it's pretty lame and I'm working on bringing a little more balance to my life this year.
With that said, my most recent creative hibernation is coming to an end and I could begin telling you all about my latest film, a psychological thriller, Happy Birthday, Claire!
It's a project that I've been wanting to shoot for a while now and was finally given the opportunity to do so through this director's fellowship that I've been a part of for the past several months, Armed With A Camera, held by Visual Communications through the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival.
The film is about a broken couple and the horrific lengths they're willing to go in the name of family and tradition and it poses the question, "How far are you willing to go to look after your own?"
The teaser is below and it's premiering at the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival on April 24th at 8pm in the Aratani Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
So if you're in LA, come through and check it out ! My film will be programmed with the other amazingly talented filmmakers in the fellowship who will all be screening their amazing films as well.
