One thought on “ABOUT FAC

  1. Dear FilAm,

    Few years ago I pitched a short-form series to YOMYOMF (Justin Lin’s Youtube channel) called Straight No Chaser. One of the notes was the project needed an Asian presence. So I switched the 14 year old lead, Plato, from a Puerto Rican to a Filipino. Since then I changed the project from live action to animation. But animation in a raw style to complement the gritty and rusty subject matter. I kept Plato Filipino. It worked for me. Growing up in The Bronx tough guys came in all shades from Irish to Jordanian to Cambodian to Russian . It was the United Nations of bad-asses.

    Without chewing ya ear off any further, I wanted to share the pilot episode of SNC Animated Series with you guys:

    Hope you enjoy,

    Hanley Valentin
