We sought after music tracks that immediately put you inside the tavern. We mixed the music like it was coming from a jukebox inside.

Jon Chiang | The Mime

Produced by Chifa Studios

I knew I wanted the piece to feel dynamic and help underscore the emotion behind Yayoi’s words. I was searching for strings and piano and “Nocturne in Paris” felt like it fit perfectly for the emotional high I wanted to end the film with – just enough without being over the top. I decided to bring in “Lux” at the beginning to set the tone with a track that drew me in and would draw the audience into Yayoi’s story. It has a really beautiful pull.” – Jon Chiang

I Can Do That*

We have been huge Darren King fans for a while. We all listened to his band Mutemath in high school and have followed his career since leaving the band. His energy and feel on the drums is unparalleled. We were super excited when we found out Darren was even willing to entertain the idea of working with us on this spot and he lived up to every expectation.” – Benji Allred

Just Start

Created by Kyle Dijamco

The biggest obstacle I had to overcome is nothing unique but rather common to all filmmakers. I had both the luxury, but also the crutch to be a one-man band for this film. I did the creative, production, and post-production all by myself. Starting this film 4 days before the release date made, time and shot planning was the biggest obstacle. This was a guerrilla-style filmmaking shoot so traveling across multiple LA locations in a day became exhausting. I ended up not even using one location because it didn’t fit with the story, so that half day become a waste but a great learning experience that not everything always goes to plan.” – Kyle Dijamco
