On a side note, this was the best film I’ve ever written and directed (in my opinion). A lot of effort was put in by everyone that was involved. I could’ve done better, I already know it, but I’m very proud of everything I’ve learned about filmmaking since I’ve started.
We’re in the works on our next project now. It’s bigger and going to take more time, but I’m hoping it will come out as perfect as I visualize it. I go through many drafts with my scripts and with this next short film I’ve gone through the most. I’m hoping my writing blog can also attract filmmakers or screenwriters like myself. I’d love to get to know that community too.
I’ll update with pictures and maybe some posts on my productions. We work really hard on them and most of what goes on behind the scenes are undocumented and forgotten. I want to change that for my crew.

This prompts me to ask, “What’s your shirt from?”. He responds, “The Republic of Vietnam…”
