Looking for Miku, Part II [Jan 2014]

Photos from the second half of production on Looking for Miku for this week’s second post! Thanks to the wonderful cast and crew for taking many of these as we shot on location in Little Tokyo and Los Angeles!

Also, a quick congratulations to Marina Chung, mother of our lead actress Jacklyn Chung-Young, for being named first runner-up last night on the second season finale of ABC’s The Taste! The Taste is a cooking competition that features Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, and Marcus Samuelsson as judges and mentors. Hoping it leads to great things for Marina! 🙂

Since we shot the same weekend as ALA, I was unable to attend the con. However, some of my pictures did! Click the link for details!

It was a wild and crazy ride, but my awesome cast and crew truly made it a wonderful experience! More photos in the album linked below; check out some of my other adventures on my photography Facebook Page and get updates on the film on my filmmaking Facebook Page!
