If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me and two other girls in mini short films. On paper we’re three women with names that start with A. We’re all Korean American. We’re all cute and spunky (or at least that’s what people tell us). Beyond that, we’re women who have not seen many people who look like us on screens and decided to do something about it.
I never imagined myself in front of the camera in videos like these but when I met Angie and Ami (both actors), it was clear that we were all passionate about the idea of being more comfortable with ourselves for the purpose of sharing stories and empowerment through entertainment.
I’m very proud of us. We each wrote our own scripts, acted in them, edited them and put them out with very little resources. Even though we don’t have millions of views… we put ourselves out there, pushed ourselves outside our comfort zones (especially me) and in the process our friendship has gotten stronger. They both are very talented individuals and just making these videos with them has helped me to learn more about film making, story telling and acting… and of course myself in the creative process.
So thankful to have gotten connected to these two as we pursue our dreams.
In case you missed it, here they are:
