Aloha, Hip Hapa Homeez!
Here’s to a Happy Hapa Fall making all of your Autumn dreams come true.
At long last, ours are starting to manifest, and it appears that we’ll be producing our ‘Watermelon Sushi’ film next year.
Our esteemed Executive Producer, Lowell Douglas Ing, has already begun the process of having our old 16mm reels scanned and digitized for editing. With a mix of animation and other new-fangled editing processes, we'll be releasing a uniquely artistic film. Initially shot 25 years ago, ‘Watermelon Sushi’ will definitely benefit from today’s wizardly technology!
As for Doug, his own film, 'Alan @ Work' has been making the festival rounds. Next up for a screening is HIFF, in Doug's hometown:

One of our early 'Watermelon Sushi' producers is no longer with us, and we’d like to acknowledge his major contributions while promoting us in Japan. Arrigatou gozaimashita, Derrick Holmes!
