Finishing Funds

"Mei" was recently awarded the Irving Lerner Endowment Fund, which will help cover the final printing/color timing and telecine (video transfer) costs of the film. By late August, the film should be ready to go out to festivals and to start screening around Los Angeles.

In addition to this Finishing Fund, I also wanted to thank all the people who have donated to the film over the last few months:

Ling, Theresa, and Alex Chen
S.H. and Wendy Chen
Vincent and Cecilia Cheng
Marion Lee
M.H. Chen
Kenneth Roberts
Yang Shu Zen
Gordon Lee
Ken Long
Wayne and Grace Lin
Bertram Chan
Robert Han
Dan Jung and Delaney Andersen-Jung
Paul Wang
