Short film with a mix of Mandarin and English dialogue. Similar feel to Parasite. Will be screened and sent in applications to film festivals upon completion. Unpaid roles however expenses will be covered. I have worked on multiple successful shorts and an upcoming feature film. The characters in this film are involved in some 'dodgy dealings' per say, which come to a head in this short.
