What does a DP do while recording an interview? Shoot production stills. Naturally.

We are currently in the midst of production for BREATHIN’: THE EDDY ZHENG STORY, with about 60 hours of footage filmed to date. Some of my personal highlights were filming Eddy’s efforts to open a community center in San Francisco’s Bayview District, the birthday celebrations of both of Eddy’s parents, presentations at high schools and colleges, reunions with formerly incarcerated friends, and a national reentry conference in Los Angeles. Huge thanks to our dedicated team, especially Christine Kwon (Producer), R.J. Lozada (Director of Photography), Deann Borshay Liem (Executive Producer), Geraldine Ah-Sue (Associate Producer), Momo Chang (Writer), and Production Assistants Sean Totanes, Karolyn Wong, Manh Hakchareun, Aaron Nakai, and Alun Lee! We look forward to finishing up production on the documentary in Spring 2012, with post-production to follow. Stay tuned…
We are extremely grateful to all of our generous supporters who contributed to the Kickstarter campaign and donated towards the project through other avenues!
