surrogate valentine trailer

Check it. Here's the newly released trailer for Surrogate Valentine, directed by David Boyle and starring musician Goh Nakamura... as musician Goh Nakamura. The film is a sweet little rock-inflected road comedy "keeping a dream alive, the roads you take, and the people you meet along the way." Take a look:

Yup. And featuring the music of Goh Nakamura. Here's the synopsis:
In Dave Boyle's sweet romantic comedy, SURROGATE VALENTINE, San Francisco musician and rising star Goh Nakamura's (playing himself) life of solitude is disrupted when he is hired to teach TV actor Danny Turner (Chadd Stoops) how to play guitar for an upcoming film. Hellbent on accurately portraying Goh's mellow vibe for his role, Danny meticulously studies his every move. Together, the two embark on a hilarious West Coast adventure involving live gigs, groupies, shotgun-wielding record exes and an unexpected friendship. Along the way, Goh discovers that Danny may be the missing puzzle piece in his life-long chase for Rachel (Lynn Chen), the one that got away.
The film also stars Chadd Stoops, Lynn Chen, Parry Shen and Joy Osmanski, and will make its world premiere next month, March 12, at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin. It's also the Closing Night Film, March 17, at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. Otherwise, you can catch it soon at a film festival near you.
