"Michael's Story" Wins Screenplay Competition at AAIFF '14
My script, MICHAEL'S STORY, was selected as the winner of this year's screenplay competition at the Asian American International Film Festival in New York. Totally unexpected, but a very welcome surprise indeed!
The screenplay is an original work of fiction, but draws heavily upon actual events. In particular, the script is a reimagining of the infamous murder of Vincent Chin in 1982, and the subsequent miscarriage of justice.
I traveled to NY in July for AAIFF '14 and got to check out some of the great films. And, as the winner of the screenplay competition, I attended a live reading of Michael's Story, performed by a group of talented actors from NYC. Most importantly, I received some valuable script notes from the judges, which will be of great assistance to me in the rewriting process.
