Today is my first day on set for the feature film Sucker. It’s a spoof movie of the Twilight film Eclipse. I’m pictured above with fellow actor John Stevenson who plays Carlisle and Pancho Moler who plays the little version of my character, Edward. We’re enemies in the film but we’ve become good friends. This is my second time working Craig Moss, the writer and director of this film. Our last project was two years ago on the The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It where i played the same character, Edward. We are shooting through early October.

Five Proof

shapeimage_1 (63)

I got to work with my friends from Element 151 on their SFI project “Five Proof”. I played Shawn, a kid in high school coming to terms with his identity and where he fits in society. The shoot was very technical and required a lot from me and the other actors, beyond just learning lines. I have high hopes the final project will be stealer in production value.

While trying to find the happiness he lost, Sam, instead, finds himself being pursued by retail coworker Lisa, a witty, tom-girl who lives at her father's junkyard. In between riding the couch with his stoner High School buddies and tolerating his zany parents, Sam will have to make a choice between holding onto the dreams of his past or learning how to love again.”

New trailer up



I just came across this trailer for a movie I shot a day on over the summer. You can catch a glimpse of me around 1:36. The full title of the film is The 40 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It. I had a pretty good time on set and made a few new friends; look for it to come out some time next year.

Slumdog Virgin shoot

shapeimage_1 (48)

Today I did one day for the film Slumdog Virgin, directed by Craig Moss. The film will be a very funny movie similar to Epic Movie or Scary Movie. However, this film is mostly making fun of other comedies as well as big hits like Slumdog Millionaire and Twilight. Look for it to be released by Fox sooner than later.

Fun in the Desert

Today I worked with some AFI students in the dry lake of El Mirage. It was a great time and I had a lot of fun. Check back for photos and footage!

Whiskey Tears shoot

shapeimage_1 (24)

Just wrapped shooting three days on the upcoming short, Whiskey Tears, directed by Frank Door, produced and written by Chante Cardoso. We had two early days and one night shoot with some crane shots. Overall it was a great experience; great co-stars, great crew. We still have one more day on the schedule, so I can’t wait to get back at it and shoot some some more. Hopefully I’ll post some photos in the coming week.

Cheer Up Sam shoot

shapeimage_1 (23)

Today I shot my scene in the upcoming feature, Cheer Up Sam, written and directed by Matt Falkenthal. I had a great time on set; I play Larry, the new boyfriend of the ex-girlfriend (played by Lizzie O’Hara, pictured above) of the main character. Larry is a hot, new artist who paints pictures of feet, but everything about him is a joke, even down to his fake cockney accent.
Having worked work with me on other projects, Matt gave me free rain with the character and allowed me to push the limits with improvisation of the lines. Can’t wait to see how the film turns out.

Sub Par wrapped on production

shapeimage_1 (6)
Finished shooting for the short film, “Sub Par”. I had a great experience overall and really enjoyed getting to know my co-star, Matt Falkenthal. I hope to work with the director, Brian Dombrowski, and the crew again.
The above photo is the view from the Santa Cruz beach house we used as the location we used for the party scene.

Sub Par production started

Rescue Dawn

About two years ago I was in Werner Herzog’s film, Rescue Dawn and I finally saw the final product today. It’s still in select theaters, but not for much longer. Look for me in the first five minutes in the war room (above) as a rigger in the equipment room and during the instructional video in the front left seat.

Wrapped shooting “All About Dad”

shapeimage_1 (1)
Today I wrapped principal photography on the feature film, “All About Dad”. I’m pictured with writer/ director Mark Tran on my left and director of photography Todd Banhazl on my right. They’ll be shooting through next week. I’m wearing the Navy uniform that my character, Daniel wears.

Starting Shooting for “All About Dad”

aad
My first day on set was also the first day of production and things turned out well. We shot at two locations; at the first I ran into my buds from the “Glory Boy Days” set, Jared (actor, LANDO) and Paul (director). Jared was playing a cook and Paul was a server at a Chinese restaurant where my character in “All About Dad”, Daniel, works.
The second location was a basement on North 7th St. in San Jose and lets just say things got hot down there with all the lights and the 15 plus crew. I got to meet Hiro Narita who is supervising the photography of the film. Overall it was a great day of filming!

Started Rehearsal for All About Dad

Started rehearsal for the San Jose based feature film “All About Dad” on Wednesday. Got to meet and work the lead, David Huynh, who plays Ty Do. Shooting starts on July 6th and I can’t wait!

“All About Dad” teaser trailer online

A3CT0553
Check out the demo trailer for the upcoming film “All About Dad”.
Synopsis:
“All About Dad” is the classic conflict between an “Old World” father and “New World” kids- a theme that goes back to the very beginnings of talking pictures in “The Jazz Singer.” But “All About Dad” is completely new in that it’s the fist (and probably the funniest) feature film to address in depth the charming, unique yet universal lives of an ignored community - Vietnamese Americans. As such, it is creating great buzz and support among Bay Area Vietnamese-Americans.

“Glory Boy Days” Teaser online


gbd
Teaser for the film Glory Boy Days is now online and can be view here. I play the role of “Aces”.

More on the film:
Taking place all in 24 hours, Glory Boy Days glorifies and romanticizes everything we take for granted. Its about kids that know it wont get better than this and revel in it. It is a tribute to the banal and hipster cool by telling its cinematic voice with a whisper. These characters live life on an impulse and let faith direct them. A nonstop thrill ride from beginning to end? No. Something better: Every once in a while a film comes along that breaks through because, unlike every other Hollywood movie out there, it..s honest about how kids are. Thats GLORY BOY DAYS, but it isn’t dark, ugly and shocking for the sake of shock. Its oddly sunny...without being sappy.
