"production manager" roger, at least that's what his badge said, enjoyed the wine and cheese:
the best part of caam's festival is that people from all over the country come out for it. i got a chance to build with folks like corrine (ny), heather (tee dot), and kevin (hawai'i) all in one bar:
corrine (front left) screened her documentary short excuse my gangsta ways. watch the trailer and interview with corrine here.
my good friend aram (in the blue jays hat) came from toronto to screen his latest film the others, which was one of the best shorts i saw at the festival. after the screening we went to an after-prom like hotel party where musician goh nakamura (far right) and friends performed.
why am i always stuck with the filipinos? reppin' the better half of the state; aj (xylophone films), patricio (kid heroes), abe (vc film fest) and julius:
aj, pat and julius screened their music video for "crooks and rooks" by bambu.
many of chris iijima's friends threw a very nice reception for the film the night before the screening.
the renown film scholar and my old professor b.ruby rich:
the infamous spencer nakasako, award-winning filmmaker, teacher and my mentor. be on the lookout for an official shit-talking session with me and spence at the upcoming la asian pacific film fest, no seriously.
