Hi “Ahma and Alan” supporters! We have a fundraising event tomorrow, Sunday, June 16th, with a special event from 1pm-4pm:⠀ ⠀ Sugar Fix Boba Cafe (@officialsugarfixcafe)⠀ 9250 Reseda Blvd Ste 10 · Northridge, CA⠀ ⠀ First 50 people will receive a special edition memorabilia card signed personally by me. At 3pm, I'll be showing a never before seen three minute clip from a rough cut of the film. Mention "Ahma & Alan" the short film and the cafe will donate a portion of the sale to our Kickstarter! Hope to see you tomorrow.⠀ ⠀ While the event is 1p-4p, the fundraiser lasts all day. If you're at Sugar Fix Cafe mention Ahma & Alan when you make a purchase to help support the film. Thank you!⠀ ⠀ Can't make it out? Directly support @ahmaandalan on our @kickstarter (LINK IN THE BIO), ends next Friday night June 21st!
Shout out to Ahma & Alan Backers: Ting-Yu Hsieh⠀ , @mengqing_yuan, @jeffrey_j_man, Nani R⠀, and @winsoncooks⠀ . We’ve got one week left! Making this film has been a labor of passion and it’s so heartening to see others connect with it as well. We still have 75% of our "all or nothing" 18k goal to go and only 7 days left! Proceeds will help complete the film and a portion of production costs. ⠀ .⠀ Please help us get there by sharing the link in my bio and telling friends and family. Thanks again for the support! 😀 ⠀ .⠀ PS: For today's shoutouts, I've shared an awesome behind the scenes photo from our still photographer @nambeatphoto. 👍🏼
@gokid, Norbert Yuan, Vita CW Danapong, Melinda Chen, Kelvin Yen, and Vicky Lee...YOU ALL ARE GREAT! It has been a dream of mine ever since I wrote this as a short story over ten years ago to bring this story to life and you all are a huge part of making this closer to a reality. As this Kickstarter is an all or nothing effort, we are only 20-ish% of the way there, please share and spread the word. And of course...THANK YOU for your contributions and continued support! Back our Kickstarter, ends in 8 days! LINK IN BIO.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @ahmaandalan is a short film, will be approximately 20 minutes, starring @gregory.yuan, Mei Hou Wu, and Akio Chen. Filmed on location in Taipei, Taiwan. Written & Directed by @jamesyshih, Producer @caraichiu, Director of Photography @richardsjsue, Sound Mixer 張勤, Production Designer @skylerchen
This is for all you Okis 大木 and 沖, Shihs 施, and Yuans 袁 out there! Head over to @yellowperilpod (link in their bio) and check out actor @Gregory.Yuan and writer/director @Jamesyshih 's interview with @gokid. We had a great discussion about my short film Ahma & Alan, identity, and Asian male masculinity (be sure to stay till the end and see why Asians rock karaoke 😊). ⠀ .⠀ Show support for Asian American stories and platforms by pledging to the Ahma & Alan Kickstarter (ends June 21st! link in the bio) and the Yellow Peril Patreon. By supporting each other, we all win. Thanks again to Geoff for having us, I think we scored 100, haha!
It's been so amazing seeing the outpouring of support over the last few days. Shout out to Ahma & Alan Kickstarter Backers: @valeriesoe, @ssoyunum, Kevin Dan, @doogieratcliff, Jammin' Rabbit, @chngthengteng, @mairchiu, and Amanda C! You all are awesome =).⠀ ⠀ With only 9 DAYS LEFT We still have 81% left to go to reach our “all or nothing goal”! If we don’t make our goal, we receive none of the funds and all allocated funds are returned. Funds will be used to pay for post-production and deferred production costs. So please share!⠀ ⠀ Kickstarter:⠀⠀ https://buff.ly/2Mgc0ic⠀ ⠀⠀ Still from “Ahma & Alan”, filmed on location in Lukang, Taiwan.

Had the privilege to be interviewed by @HoChie71 about my short film project Ahma & Alan, check out the article on @taiwaneseam_org (link in their bio). Excerpt: ⠀ ⠀ "As Asian Americans we have to remind ourselves: our stories have value and are worth telling. There’s a lot of external and internal forces: our parents, our self doubt, society…that push us towards being quiet and, to quote T.S. Eliot, not 'disturb the universe.' [...] We should disturb the universe, the universe deserves it."⠀ ⠀ Support our Kickstarter, only 11 days left and 85% left to go! Link in my bio.
Hi All! Here's a heartfelt message from actor @gregory.yuan who plays the lead "Alan" in our short film, "Ahma & Alan" (@ahmaandalan). Thanks Greg!: ⠀ .⠀ Some of you might remember in December of last year (2018) I went out to Taiwan to shoot a film as it’s lead! Well now it’s in the final stages of post production but we could really use your help!! Check my bio for the link but we’re doing a Kickstarter to help cover all the costs of this film! ⠀ .⠀ So far it has been personally funded by the director @jamesyshih and we’re hoping that the story might speak to you or be of interest as well as it’s close to both of us!⠀ Please share or help however you can, even a little can go a long way 😊
Shout out to Day 16 Kickstarter Backer Christina! I'm not sure which Christina you are, but you're my hero. Really. ⠀ .⠀ Only 14 days left!
