My film The Dishwasher is going to be my thank you and dedication to my idol Jackie Chan.
My film is going to be from my heart.
My first film, my first indie.
Please keep in mind, I am not setting out to win awards.
I am doing this, because it is something I want to do, in my own way,
to thank the one man that has given me a lot of happiness, my whole life,
Jackie has been such a positive influence in my life, and for all the
happiness that he have given to me, now is my time to thank him.
I will be having one rehearsal, and am excited to have on board,
the director Seng Varipath and also my leading bad guy,
Anthony Huaong (I hope I spelled his name right, I can go in fix
it later if I spelled it wrong, sorry.) Also Jason Lee.
I do have other actors on board and am pleased.
One thing we all have in common, we all love Jackie Chan.
I had been planning and trying to do things for months,
and trying to think of ideas to add to the script, but
learning it is best to keep my first film, simple, and to
a point, and have a little bit of Jackie Chan Flavor to it.
I am very thankful and want to thank filmmakers and
others who had wanted to help me distribute and make
money off this, but it was just too much to change what
was in my heart.
I just have to do this one film my way.
Yes, once again, I'm not looking to win awards with this film.
It is something that I must do.
I am playing the lead and from learning more about
my lead bad guy Anthony, with his experience, which
he has done stunts and was in the circus and other things,
I know I might a very smart executive decision and having
play the lead.
I think also everyone involved in the film, is understanding
my vision of the film.
I know even a small film, it is going to take a lot of work.
I had to keep putting off filming, for awhile, and realize,
that I had wanted to do so much more, like having cars
and such and other things involved and making the
fight scene, way more than what I wanted to do,
so I just am keeping it simple.
Actually the director Seng, did kind of mentioned
this to me, and he is right.
I feel as though Seng does understand me, and
that he will be doing the film great justice in
getting my vision on film and that is why I really like him.
The truth is, and I'm telling the whole world this:
Seng actually stepped up and said he would like to
do my film.
Seng has lots of experience in filming, and I like his work,
so I think the combination of everyone I have on set, is
going to work quite well.
I believe to keep this film, as simple as possible, is the
I also will be submitting it to film festivals in different places
and will be adding sub-titles for other countries.
You know dreams can come true, all you got to do,
is work for what you want and just make it happen.
