A hybrid throwback to the educational after school specials of the 90s and the Japanese Tokusatsu genre, director Jon Truei presents this short film on the YOMYOMF Network.
Both the star of the film, Eric Lim and myself are Asian Americans, and we created the role of the well meaning high school Chemistry teacher Mr. Yamamoto to be a rare example of a likeable and relatable Asian American in a leading role, and to utilize this role to reclaim the imported Japanese genre of Tokusatsu.
We just premiered this week on the YOMYOMF Network, Justin Lin’s (of The Fast and the Furious Fame) youtube original premium content channel, and we’re fighting as hard as we can to make sure that the film makes it out to the internet public.
