…because I act. And I'm Asian.

Keeping Myself Accountable

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that the industry gives 0 fucks about Asian people and proper representation. Now, I could write another post about that alone, but I won’t. At least not today. Instead I want to talk about the only thing I can do about it…

I’ll just have to create my own content. With my friends. ’cause we all know Asian people are not the only group that are completely mis/under-represented.

That said, I have no goddamn clue what I’m doing. I’ve never tried to write a screenplay before or produce my own work and it’s pretty daunting to think about where to start. Luckily, the internet is fucking rad about stuff like this.

For one, I know the format to write a script now, thanks to Oscars.org! (Link is here)

I also started my own production company! Made it an LLC. All of that stuff. We’re in the pre-production stages of our first project and about to go on social media journey that I barely understand. Everything is looking pretty blank at the moment, but here’s the link to our website if you want to keep track.

I’m really excited and terrified. It should be interesting and I can’t wait to share the content we make with all of you!

  1. Waiting for the day more Asian males get their time to shine as leads. Getting tired of never seeing Asian males in movies. As an Asian guy, I believe Asian males can be excellent protagonists. They don’t have to be reserved for side characters. Conversely, Asian females are often depicted just for the exotic look. Actually, now that I think about it, there are hardly that many Asian female leads in the west, either…

    At the end of the day, the film industry grinds my gears with stuff like this always happening.

    • I really should write a post about it, I just talk about it so much to my peers that it makes me sick to have to think about it even more!
