WRAPPED on Bicultural!

As an Asian-American filmmaker with every sense of underrepresentation for my Filipino heritage, I could not miss out on HBO's Visionaries Competition for Asian-Americans. Once I found out about it via a friend's Facebook post, I set out to shoot a short film based on a television pilot I had written a couple months prior. It was quite a pressing task to complete pre-production, principal photography, AND post-production in two months but we did it! 

Bicultural is a story that reflects the deepest corridors of my heart. No exaggeration. This is a very special one to me. No, it's not an auto-biography (for those who have and will ask). It's just a story. A story derived from true emotional ties. As any creator would say, it's an extension of who we are. I don't want to say too much about the plot but here are some BTS shots from the set!

 Some of our amazingly talented cast and crew!

It was a blast working with this team. We were hard pressed with time but we pulled through! I'm so proud of us. I cannot wait to share this with all of you. 

With love,
