I’ve known Evan Jackson Leong for over a decade since the grassroots marketing days of Better Luck Tomorrow. As long as I’ve known him, he has always had a greater vision for the Asian American community and has always pushed the envelope to make things happen.
Snakehead has always been Evan’s baby. Way before Linsanity or even 1040 (two documentary projects which I served as Assistant Editor). He wrote this script way back with the intention of making it his narrative feature film debut and now that time has finally come.
As Evan says, every single project he has ever worked on has been “for the community and by the community.” Absolutely true. I have firsthand experience and will vouch for him for life. He is truly someone who is passionate about getting our stories out there and despite any limitations, he will always find a way to do it with excellence.
If you are down, let’s make a movie!!!
