After his life crumbles, a lonely businessman with a penchant for pencil sketches takes his passion of art to the next level when he finally accepts his true calling.
SKETCH sprang from my interests in loneliness and uncertainty and playing the lead actor, Jesse Hsu, against his comedic type. I have worked with Jesse and my go-to cinematographer Adrian Peng Correia on several projects in the past and we thought this was a unique opportunity so we all just went for it and shot the film in my home away from home, New York City. I’d like to thank my amazing crew and cast who were underfed, underpaid (mostly no pay), and understanding. I’m very pleased with everyone’s hard work and great attitudes.
