I'm starting to direct some small-scale commercials in Taipei for some extra cash while working on our feature project.

The last one was for a Stem Cord Bank (VIA) - the commercial is actually now playing (on continuous loop) in every McDonald's in Taipei. Quite often I feel the need to enjoy an Egg McMuffin Meal in the morning and the other day, I was sitting there and saw the commercial playing in between a promotional sketch of a Chinese-speaking Ronald McDonald and the Fry Kids introducing some disturbing new sandwich.

Doing a commercial was an interesting learning experience, especially working with clients and all that, but actually kind of fun.

The next one might involve shooting a promotional thing for a novelist here.
