Ten years ago today (September 13, 2002), my first independent feature film that I executive produced ans also appeared in, SOAP GIRL, was an Official Selection for the 2002 Big Bear Lake International Film Festival that took place from September 13-15. I drove up along with the director, the screenwriter and the other executive producer on our first day and Opening Night of the festival. We met filmmaker Brad Silberling and the Festival's president, Monica Skerbellis. Silberling's film, "Moonlight Mile" was the event's Opening Night feature film. Producer Janet Yang, director Greg Pak, actors Mako, Dana Lee, JoBeth Williams and the folks from the film, "Charlotte Sometimes," too. The latter was our competition in the category of Best Feature Film in the Asian American category.
