Five students from opposite sides of the lunchroom must work together to finish their "Senior Project" in the latest project from director Nadine Truong.
Written by a 16-year-old Hong Kong high school student named Jeremy Lin (no relation to the NBA basketball star), "Senior Project" is a comedy about five teenagers who cram a year-long senior project into one last crazy weekend before graduation. Its described as "SuperBad" meets "The Breakfast Club."
The filmmakers raised over $250,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to fund their film.
Truong's first feature "nightdreamblues" was later re-titled "Someone I Used to Know." It was written by West Liang and starred Brian Yang, Eddie Mui, Emily Chang, West Liang, Tzi Ma, and Diana Lee Inosanto.
"Someone I Used to Know" premiered at the 2013 CAAMFest in San Francisco and later screened at the 2013 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and the 2013 Asian American International Film Festival in New York.
Critics described Truong's film as "a bittersweet drama" that is "a new-millennium remix of such classic eighties’ ensemble dramas as "The Breakfast Club" and "St. Elmo's Fire" as well as drawing comparisons to "Less Than Zero" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
The upcoming "Senior Project" is being produced by Stephane Gauger and Fabienne Wen.
The producers are currently looking for people that work in fashion who are trying to get their brand out there and would like to place their clothes in the movie.
According to the filmmakers, there is a big fashion story-line in "Senior Project" and it would be a great way for fashion designers to get their designs seen.
