Welcome to ‘the’ film project you’ve been waiting for. My hope for this film is bringing it to Hollywood. If you have the same passion and drive for success as I, then this could be the one. I am a longtime screenwriter and a first time Director. I believe in great storytelling and creating characters we fall in love with. To me, these are the pinnacle of a successful movie. We are looking for honest, hardworking, and humble people to join the team. If you are that, then let’s make dreams happen.

Your Director,
David Shum
