Director Justin Lin (Better Luck Tomorrow, Fast & Furious) and YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily.com are bringing the INTERPRETATIONS filmmaking panel to New York this Saturday, July 17 at 5 PM as part of the Asian American Int’l Film Festival. Our panel is FREE but reserve your tickets here before they’re all gone. We’ve commissioned actor Ken Leung (Miles on TV’s Lost) to make his own INTERPRETATIONS sample short and we’ll be world premiering his film/Valentine to the Big Apple entitled Rumble at our panel so come out and be the first to see Ken’s directorial debut. Ken will be in attendance to discuss his short and participate in our filmmakers’ panel following a screening of our commissioned shorts.
Check out all the updates on our INTERPRETATIONS website–this is our brand-new effort to support our community of aspiring filmmakers. We’re starting to receive your submissions and will start posting those films throughout the week and rest of the summer so check back often. We’re also starting a new feature entitled ONE ON ONE where we’ll be interviewing some of our jurors and other industry professionals about the craft and business of movies. Our first interview with hapa CAA agent Rowena Arguelles (whose clients include Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke and Justin Lin) is posted now (click here to read). Next up is producer Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Terminator Salvation) so if you have a question you’d like to ask Dan, submit it by this Sunday, July 18 to: Jerome@yomyomf.com
Remember you have until September 1 to submit your short film (of 3 minutes or less) to INTERPRETATIONS using the four-line script we provide. This is your chance not only to win some cash toward your next project (five filmmakers will win $3,000), but get your work seen by industry professionals. And a very special thanks to MTV who have just come on board as our Media Partner for INTERPRETATIONS!
One Script, Endless Possibilities…
