Film Courage: Van, can we talk about your life as a daydreamer? I understand that daydreaming is very important to your creative process. What was daydreaming like for you when you were a kid? What is it like for you now?
Van Ditthavong, Filmmaker/Photographer: I don’t know, I always thought you grow up and get in trouble for daydreaming and things like that. But sometimes you just can’t help but stare outside the window and let your mind go. I remember as a kid, you just do it. Everyone daydreams until they are told not to I think. I wish we could nourish that more and I think it could be harnessed…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).

SCIFI HORROR SEQUEL ‘MANDAO RETURNS‘ NOW STREAMING ON AMAZON PRIME
This is the third feature from Writer/Director Scott Dunn and Producer Gina Gomez Dunn. They successfully raised funds for the sequel via Kickstarter and managed to complete production only 2 days before all film productions shut down due to the pandemic. Because of the lockdowns, Scott Dunn had to tackle post-production by himself (editing, color correction, effects, and sound) and release the flick in time for the holidays.
