“I remember before my freshman year in college, I briefly considered becoming a doctor.  Then I saw what kind of commitment it required.  8:00 a.m. classes 5 days a week, labs every Thursday night, biology, chemistry, physics.  And that was just the beginning.  It would get progressively harder after that.  Those class schedulers were trying to weed me out, and it worked.” read more in John Chi’s Film Courage post here

ABOUT TENTACLE 8:

When a mysterious computer virus crashes the computer networks at the NSA, the U.S. Government initiates a secret manhunt to find the perpetrators.  Caught in the nets of the clandestine round up, is NSA analyst RAYMOND BERRY, who is thrown into a secret military detention center.  Ray plots his escape from the Intelligence world, so he can start a new life with TABITHA, a CIA operative he has recently fallen in love with.  But when Ray learns that Tabitha may not be who she says she is, things get dangerously complicated.  Inspired by films like All The President’s Men, The Insider, Memento, and Children of Men, Tentacle 8, is about the tenuous and arduous journey to protect and preserve the truth, no matter how extraordinary the circumstances might be.

“I left a moderately successful career as a Management Consultant to go to film school at USC, and quickly realized that crafting interesting stories based on made up stuff wasn’t that different than the movie business.   For me, the greatest thing about film school, no question, was the people I met.  It’s a place where you’ll meet your future partners and collaborators, and an opportunity to figure out what kind of filmmaker you want to be.  I met one my closest friends and my future producing partner, Casey Poh, in film school.  Together we developed a shared language, and a common set of experiences that I think all film school students can relate to.  Team building is one of the most important things you can do…” read more in John Chi’s Film Courage post here
