There’s a good reason why I haven’t updated in over a month. And it’s summed up with one word: Paperwork
Tons of muther-effin’ paperwork.
The SI gang and I are in the middle of putting together, SHATTERED: The Asian American Comic Anthology (that’s SECRET IDENTITIES: Vol 2, which for some reason isn’t an acceptable title with the publisher — so much for brand recognition ). So back and forth edits, drafting contracts and last minute outreach are abound. Heck, some of you have seen what the board looks like:
Then I’m producing my first project (a secret one — that will probably remain one until it’s shown) that I’ve been working on since January.
Things are coming together amazingly well and I don’t want to say any more than that, less to jinx it all. But besides the shooting itself — it involves setting up the LLC, payroll, SAG signatories to use the actors, scouting locations, pulling permits, getting insurance, drafting up contracts and setting up bank accounts. Below is a snapshot during a location scout and is my favorite one so far.
And then to top it all off, we’re doing a re-fiance for the house. Which if you haven’t been through one before — man, it’s a full-time job with the stuff they need you to collect and verify within days for the lender and escrow. It amazes me how in the world anyone can get a re-fi done these days. I’m one of the most organized people you’ll ever meet and even I’m having problems keeping up to speed.
But despite all this paperwork, it couldn’t stop me from doctoring up another “YES, WE’RE OPEN“ poster — Hollywood Style! I’ll always be able to find something to stick inside that poster board we’re holding.
The LA screening will be at the beautiful, 600-seat DGA Theatre on Sat, May 12 at 9PM. Tickets are available here:
The screening last month at The Castro was amazing. It was a rush to see it alongside 1,400 people laughing (at the funny parts, of course).
Below are a few pics from the night. But let’s take some new ones at the DGA on May 12!!
