I am still reeling from Saturday night's amazing Los Angeles premiere of National Film Society's Awesome Asian Bad Guys at the 30th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. It was, yes, awesome.
Directors Stephen Dypiangco and Patrick Epino were joined by stars of the action/comedy webseries -- including Tamlyn Tomita, Yuji Okumoto, George Cheung, Randall Park, Aaron Takahashi and Dante Basco -- as well as a fantastic, energetic crowd. As executive producer, on behalf of the whole team, thank you to everyone who came out and supported the project. It was soooo much fun.
Here are some photos from the evening, courtesy of Joseph Dypiangco:

Culled from a planned six-episode action comedy web series that crosses The Expendables and Dumb and Dumber, Awesome Asian Bad Guys is the tale of two filmmakers who rush to assemble a volatile group of Asian bad guy actors to take down L.A.'s most nefarious mobster. But in order to pull off their tricky mission, this unpredictable batch of misfits must do the one thing they hate most -- work together.
