New Poster

We have a new poster! Designed by the incredibly talented Mauricio Abril, our poster has a minimalist look, featuring the haircut, glasses, and Walkman-type cassette player of our main character Yong. It is, in some ways, an homage to the classic work of Saul Bass, who was the premiere main title and poster designer of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Becoming Eddie Update

We have finished principal photography! Thanks to our cast and crew for all their talent and hard work! The footage looks terrific, and we are editing it all together.

We have press!
