One of the most frustrating things as an Asian male is looking at the castings that are out there. If I’m lucky, I see one once a week. I see a lot of ‘all ethnicities’ castings, but who knows what they’re actually looking for. As an actor, you’re all the way at the end of … Continue reading Blinking Cursor.
So, it’s December. Glad to see everyone is still around, I hope you’ve been fighting the good fight, staying well, and trying to do some good. Sorry I haven’t been in touch or up-to-date on this in the past few months because, well it’s been crazy. But since December is always a bit slow, and … Continue reading The Year of the Big Bet.
I guess the title is a bit of a lie. We’ve technically been working at this since October. That makes it closer to something like Day 200. But today is Day 1 in my book. Something like twenty-two drafts later there’s 51 pages worth of script ready to shoot. Each role is cast, the bones … Continue reading Untitled: Day 1

You haven’t stayed up late in New York until you’ve seen the Empire State Building turn off its lights, and then in the same night watch the Chrysler Building do the same when the sunrise hits its spires. I don’t know why, but my insomnia has been really bad lately. It’s been three days in … Continue reading 30 For 30: Only For The Lonely
It’s really no secret that I like to write. In the course of writing, I’ve learned to draft and draft and draft until you get to a final product that you like.
