Kepler X-47 at LACMA Muse Young Directors Night


I attended the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Young Directors Night not too long after I moved to Los Angeles to pursue filmmaking. I remember watching the unique array of films, of all genres, styles and forms, at the screening and hoping that one day, I’d have a film at the event. I still have the postcard from the 2011 showcase on my bookshelf.

So, I was thrilled when LACMA Muse selected KEPLER X-47, my latest film, to be a part of their 2014 Young Directors Night showcase. The films will screen at LACMA’s Bing Theater, where I’ve attended so many LACMA / Film Independent screenings featuring talks with film luminaries (Ang Lee, Michael Haneke, etc.). Elvis Mitchell, host of KCRW’s The Treatment, will be moderating a Q&A with the directors after the screening. I’ve listened to him interview many filmmakers while in L.A. traffic and I’m looking forward to meeting him.

It’s been quite a journey since I changed career paths to make movies, and it definitely helps when some of your dreams come true, no matter how big or small, along the path. Thank you, LACMA Muse and Young Directors Night programmers, for this amazing opportunity.

Here’s a sneak peek at the 2014 LACMA Muse Young Directors Night films.
