Film Courage: How did you pitch the company that helped you finance ALL ROADS TO PEARLA?
Van Ditthavong, Filmmaker/Photographer: I met Red Sanders of Red Entertainment Productions through our composer named Curtis Heath who did a lot of my short films. They were in Ft. Worth [Texas] and I was scouting down there and he was like Hey, have you talked to Red Entertainment? I was like No, I haven’t. They have offices in Santa Monica and I was in LA at the time. I sent over an email and said Hey, I have a mutual friend Curtis. I’ve got this script that I am going to be doing. They read it, loved it, we had a meeting and I love people from Texas. They are like sweethearts and they’re just great. Derek and Red are just fantastic folks. I had my mood reel and my lookbook. I had pretty much things set up. I eventually became with goPOP FILMS and their productions. We held certain meetings for investors and things like that but eventually we cobbled up the financing through separate investors…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
