Soon-Mi and Skye are struggling actresses sharing an apartment in Koreatown. Desperate to book a role before her visa expires, Skye double-crosses Soon-Mi, and takes her place at a mysterious audition. When Skye doesn’t come home from a callback, Soon-Mi goes looking for her. Little does she know that the fate of her friend lies with a sinister man, with ambitions of his own.
Having graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, I’ve unexpectedly yet happily spent the majority of my working life in education. I grew up on Super 8 and 16mm film as a kid so I have a nostalgic take on things. When not teaching I keep busy with freelance production work and writing short scripts, but fully remain on course to realizing my potential as an independent filmmaker.

This quintet of new works seeks an understanding of the social situation, though we know that in some cases, “agreement” is impossible. — Abraham Ferrer
