If you follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on FB or any other social media, you get this overall picture of me:
That I am now a vegetarian (I eat fish so I am what they call a pescatarian). That I take Pilates classes. That I quit smoking. That I am teaching a film class at KNUA (Korean National University of the Arts). That I have a radio show and a weekly TV appearance. That I did a short film early this year and yet haven't done a feature in a long time.
This summer I almost made a feature. A certain film festival asked me to write a script in a month and to make the film before the end of summer. Believe it or not, I manage to write it in 6 weeks but I ran out of time. Plus, the script was far from satisfactory and the budget might be too high.
I am sad to have passed up such an opportunity. I mean, how often do you get a chance to make a feature without having to worry about raising money regardless of the amount? Especially for someone like me who hasn't done a feature in years.
But at the same time, it gave me the confidence. Hey, I was able to finish a script in 6 weeks. If I put my mind into it, I can make it happen.
So now, I'm getting back on track. Since Expats fell through, I didn't really try to make a feature. It's been many years. Now I'm starting a new project that I'm passionate about and know I will be good at.
It's going to be a comedy. It's a mockumentary. What's it about? I can tell you this much. This is going to be a fun movie. Something I'll enjoy making. Something I believe you'll enjoy watching. I'll let you know what it's about when I finish it. I intend to finish the first script in 2 months. Wish me luck!
