23 July 2016 - I'm hosting a series of private screenings for cast, crew, family and friends of a rough draft of "The Pleasure of Being Served" for feedback purposes. It's 95% done, it just needs music and full credits. So far so good.
Talking Points - I'm trying to come up with talking points regarding interracial dating, sex, love, friendships, the immigrant experience, loneliness, and work ethic just in case these topics come up in conversations when promoting this short film. I'm not a political person. Certain characters and situations may come up as symbolic but I wouldn't read to much into them.
