I've been under the weather lately with friends and family flying into Hong Kong and I, as a requisite, had been taking them out about the town. Going out every other night definitely doesn't help the immune system. I knew there was a reason I imposed a curfew on myself a couple of years ago!
Three bits of news: My film is still in the casting process right now. Its an arduous and fickle road and my hope is I get through it with a cast I can be proud of.
2nd news: the other projects are going well, the other producer I'm working with just sent me a book he optioned to read. He's looking to have me and my writing partner adapt it into a feature. The book doesn't read easily, but a structure may exist that would make for a compelling film. Our second collaboration is going well, I should get a transcipt of the optioned film in a couple of weeks which would mean commencement of writing; I think I mentioned that I hope to get a final scrīpt 4-6 months after that.
3rd news: My videos are up! The first project has yet to be released, but I was nominated for Best Director of a Documentary at the Asian Festival of First Films for that one. A fun time and you'll recognize the featured artist, wink wink. The second project was a TVC I did for producer Jacob Mense and his Aiya! production company (producers of MTV's Chiseen). It's a quasi government ad for Suicide Prevention Services which was played throughout June/July I think in KMB buses and on terrestrial TV. There's another commercial, but that one's too long to put up.
I'm looking to direct TVCs, music videos, and anything I can get my hands on so if you're a producer, ad executive, or such persons willing to hire a young gun with unique POV, please send me an email.
