Title: Asian Stories (formely, "Asian Stories (Book 3)")
When Jim is jilted by his bride-to-be, he decides to convince his
ex-con and best friend, Alex to kill him before Valentines Day and
put him out of his lonely misery.
Asian Stories is an amazing feature length film that tells
a story unlike any other. Jim is a young closefisted Chinese American
living in LA who desperately finds himself with a stack of white
flower themed disposable cameras, fleur-de-lis invitations, a number
of champagne bottles, and a ten-thousand dollar engagement ring
bill. The only thing missing is a bride. In financial debt and miserable
for having his fiancé leave two weeks prior to Valentine's
day, Jim tries to resurface his dignity and wash away his wretchedness
by asking his best friend, a Japanese hitman whose passion for cooking
fancy entrees extends far beyond his kitchen, to kill him just in
time to miss the Hallmark holiday. With less than four days to live,
Jim, while wearing his wedding tuxedo the entire time, treks to
the mountains to find his fate, meet a pizza delivery boy with lucky
charms, the funeral spot of his choice, and a girl.

Supporters of Independent Film,
Kris Chin and
I have hated watching crappy movies way before our college days.
But as the years went by, it just got worse and we kept paying our
eight bucks to see movies that just plain sucked.
had absolutely zero experience writing, directing or producing,
we figured we couldn't do any worse than the blockbuster epics known
as "Glitter" and "Catwoman". So last year we
finally quit complaining and decided to make a movie that we would
want to see and hopefully didn't suck too bad.
Does it suck? The jury is still out. Let us know if you think it
doesn't suck, otherwise, just add us to the ever growing list next
Thanks for supporting

had a dream - to make a movie reflecting our Asian American heritage
that we’ve never seen on screen. Whether your Chinese, Korean,
Vietnamese, or whatever – there are just some jokes that are
not told outside of our ethnic circles.
decided to bring them out. It may not be politically correct –
but it’s real. We also wanted a good story, so we brainstormed
on a topic that we could relate to.
Here it is,
a movie that hopefully shows a kind of humor rarely seen or heard
of. We hope you will enjoy the characters as they reflect real people
who we’ve either known or encountered in our own lives.
And most of
all, that you share in our dream to see more movies that make
you laugh, make you cry, make you feel…
