Lots of exciting things going on right now.
Here’s a quick summary:
1) I finally buckled and joined IMDb Pro, so that I could post headshots with my account. My agent felt it was time. I think he’s right. Curt Howe, you rock! And now I have a “Vanity URL”: http://www.imdb.me/cindychu
2) I just received my deal memo for Salvation Boulevard!!! Salvation Boulevard is based on the book by Larry Beinhart. I’ll be shooting in late May, and actually this leads me to point 3!
3) I was also cast as Michelle in Riddle, which is reportedly starring Val Kilmer, and as of this posting, my shoot date for this is the day before my shoot date for SB. Riddle is shooting in Pittsburgh, PA.
4) Yoshiko on the Dunes premiered last night at the Michigan Theater as part of the U of M‘s senior thesis films event! It was shot on a Canon 5d Mark II, and ended up looking sooooo beautiful. Congratulations, Micah Vanderhoof! I played the part of Naoki, Yoshiko’s friend, and also helped voice Death.
5) Sucker is wrapping up, we’re on our last week of shooting, and I am so happy that I was able to work on it on the production side. It was such a great experience and I think it’s going to be a huge success! I met a lot of amazing people, like Lloyd Kaufman, who was in for a day last week. Check out Bloody Disgusting’s article on the film! Follow Lloyd Kaufman on Twitter! And huge kudos to Big Screen Entertainment and Big Screen Michigan for bringing their movie-making magic to our wonderful state. And here’s my little shoutout to the DPs, aka the Directors of Photography on Sucker. The Deka brothers have amazing vision, and in fact, Julien Deka said the translation for director in French is réalisateur, and his translation of that into English was one who makes dreams reality. Nice! It’s also been wonderful to meet and work with Kimberley Kates, a lovely vision who is also one of the producers of Sucker and a head honchette at Big Screen. Big Screen Entertainment will be releasing their new horror flick Babysitter Wanted on Blu-Ray and DVD in the USA on May 25, 2010. Amazon is taking pre-orders now, click on Blu-Ray or DVD in the prior sentence to pre-order yours now. Watch the trailer for it here. You can also watch it on PPV or VOD!

6) My interview with Roborobb is up at last! Listen to it here! I’m not the best interviewee…don’t judge me! Thank you Rob for the interview, I think you covered a lot of bases. 😀 You can follow Rob on Twitter!
7) This weekend, besides working on Sucker, I’ll be doing an (probably my last) extra role on the feature film JINN, playing an insane asylum inhabitant…all kinds of crazy, that’s right!
And I think that’s it for updates!
One last plug for friends, my buddies J-Thrill and D-Train of Thrill Train fame, have their song featured in a student film, “Camp Chapel”, and you can check it out on Youtube here, or just view it below:
As always, stay fabulous my lovelies! Until next time!
