Hey all, I'm currently looking for real life mixed martial arts fighters(any level, as long as they are pursuing mixed martial arts and goal is to fight a real official fight) to audition for a project, if any of you guys know people who fit this profile, please send me their contacts, I really appreciate it, thanks so much!
Been real hectic these last few weeks!>3 jobs (1 full, 2 PT) + studying/learning filmmaking + publicity for "Drowning" + Hiring web guy to redo my website + helping friends w/projects = busy!!! I must say that right now this journey I'm experiencing is probably what most people who want to make movies go through. I read up some books recently about famous directors and how they made their first movie. Ang Lee's story was pretty sad, he was like a hyped up director fresh out of NYU, and then 6-8 years of "developm...Read more

hahaa. I totally forgot the film I did in China last year was on Spike TV today "Kung Fu Killer" while I was out w/some friends, but I had it DVRed, so it was all good.

I didn't think I'd be back doing theatre again but an opportunity came and I took it. Instead of the acting, I took up a directing opportunity for a 24 hour theatre festival(write,direct,act out a real show within 24 hours) for Roundbelly Theatre located on Shattuck in Berkeley. Got there at 5:30am and started looking at the scrīpt the writer wrote and started discussing some immediate changes I wanted to make to the scrīpt before the actors got there. The scrīpt was probably one of the craziest whacko things I had ...Read more
