June on the first day of filming.
I was concerned about finding the rest of the cast, but everything reallly fell into place. I met the other main Korean actors Heidi and Chuck through a guy who was interested in helping crew on the film. They have both been really dedicated and have thrown themselves into the project as well. Beyond these, there were many others who helped out immensely and were delightful to work with. The project really couldn't have happened without this whole group of wonderful people. I also have to include my wife Abigail who was always there to help out and encourage me.

Chuck loving his bloody role.
There were certainly other challenged besides finding actors and translating the screenplay, but none as difficult and relieving to have finished. At this point, I had actors and a screenplay in the proper language. I just had to make the film...
Great cast and crew jumping for joy in Bugok Dong!
