Director Paula- who's short films are in our Love Program, gave me kisses on both cheeks (Brazilian greeting) as soon as I approached her- so comfortably dressed in sweatshirt and jeans flies in from Sao Paolo, Brazil- Drove her home to our MISSION VALLEY THEATER in my Mini , while learning some Portuguese phrases from her...
Arrived at the theater to find that the press was already on our guests' butts- Toyota Matrix is interviewing filmmaker Ji-Hoon Kim and actor Kyung-duk Ra from Seoul Korea!
Then , it was my turn. Waiting patiently.
Reception in front of Ulan Medical Spa at Hazard Center- Packed with people, food, fun... all in preparation for our film CHILDREN OF INVENTION!! Director Tze Chun attended. Handsome young director he was :] (shoot! I forgot pictures!)
My camaraman and director, Darryl Kim from Projekt Newspeak. Thank you!!!!
Some of my friends came over to watch THIRST!!!!! At 9:40pm, it was a packed house!!!
Then, cherry on top to end the night-- bumped into Parry Shen in the theater! (I remember him from BETTER LUCK TMRW) He has a comedy short film , and also here to promote his new film TIVO!!! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1489256/ check it out!
