7.31.10 Shock & Awe
photos by anna raugalisReaders from the early days may recall a post I wrote about my husband, a talented filmmaker and true gentleman. Well, here he is again, this time featured for completing his first narrative short film, Aftershock, which he wrote, produced and directed. (Also a DP, he decided to have someone else shoot it as he kinda had his hands full.) I am so excited for him, and have every confidence it will get into festivals and receive the acclaim it deserves. The film tells the bittersweet story of a man who loses his family in an earthquake in China, and later finds himself struggling as an immigrant in New York City. Read more about it, find out about future screenings, and see some beautiful stills and on-set photos here.
Here's a little behind-the-scenes secret: I was asked to access my rusty acting chops and contribute some (rather emotional) voiceover work for the film's final scene! I got to play opposite the lead, Steven Lin—unbelievably, he's the guy below and in the first photo above.
