Trailer – “Breaking the Silence”

This short film addresses the difficult subject of “comfort women” during WWII—and the movement in the 1980s to acknowledge them.

Directed by Seayoon Jeong.

Trailer edited by Leon Chase.


I made this movie—with the help of my talented wife Ashlie— inside our apartment in April 2020, in response to Roger Corman’s Quarantine Film Festival challenge.

The challenge: Make a movie, under two minutes, without leaving your home, using only a cell phone and available lights.

Shot on a Galaxy S10 phone. All jobs except acting were done by me.

Highlander Cultural Bazaar Recap

One of two promo videos I created for the historic Highlander Research and Education Center, summarizing their two-day online Zoom event held in June 2020.

“Fever Dreams”

This is a personal art project, which I started while recovering from a COVID-19 infection. Originally, the focus was just on being sick, and the altered consciousness that comes with that. But as the world started changing drastically over the past few months, I felt the video start to naturally change with it.

Both the music and video were crafted entirely from public-domain audio samples and footage.

I had been kicking around the idea of this video for quite a while. With the recent pandemic, I suddenly found myself with more time on my hands, and figured it was a good opportunity to finally sit down and make it happen.
