WCA: What are your goals in the area of film?

SS: My goal in film is to make movies that communicate good messages. I hope that one day I get to make a film that really impacts the way my viewers look at reality for the better. We don't have that in Hollywood anymore; I hope I'm the lucky one who gets to bring that back someday. If its not me, kudos to the person that does.

WCA: Are you done with your Wing Chun training?

SS: I'm done with WC for now. I have to go to law school and start my production company. This takes a lot of time!

WCA: Tell me about it. It is hard to find the time to focus on training and have any other side projects at all, much less Law School and running a business. Do you think we'll ever see any more Wing Chun in your films?

SS: I want to make a romantic comedy/coming-of-age-flick about a nerdy computer programmer who learns WC and becomes popular after beating up a bunch of guys at a bullshido.com-style throw-down. He meets his first girlfriend that way.

WCA: That sounds great, I can't wait. I'm curios to know if you are Christian and if that was part of the basis for the film. I'm no expert, but I didn't think there were many Chinese Christians in the 1930's and 40's, so I was wandering about that.

SS: Yes, I'm a Christian. I'm actually half-Jewish/half-Chinese. Yes, I wanted to express an aspect of my faith that everyone could relate to: Forgiveness

Do I really have to talk about this ?

and since when does bullshido.com have Throwdowns ? ... I thought that was .net thing .

Wow, some one should tell him that his storyline is very unauthentic. As opposed to the movie linked which is 'semi-authentic.'

He has additional cinematic gems posted at http://www.whatthefilm.org/whatthefilm/

"Parabellum" is especially... um... accurate.

Wow, the script's the only thing worse than the swordfight.

Here is how I see it .

Most Wing Chun sucks .

Most low budget movie projects suck .

Most Christian video propaganda sucks .

So if you make a low budget movie about Christian Chunners ... the deck is already stacked against you .

I wonder, could this be self-reflective of one of his kung-fu wet dreams. (http://www.bullshido.net/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/5401/size/big/cat/515)

I can see it now, our pretty young MEGA JESUS-SAMA fluttering her long eye-lashes while clutching her bow tighter and tighter as each bullshido.com fighter gets put down with a devestating flurry of centre-line cleaving strikes.

I hope to see him at the ext Bullshido meet demonstrating his Wing Chun and then he can meet his next girlfriend there, Sirc maybe.

Doesn't Robert Downey Jr. do _ing _un? Maybe he can play the lead in this movie after he's done filming "Iron Man."

I saw Biemo a while ago.... pretty bad movie. It probably would've been better if it had a coherent script. Or explained why there was a Karateka hanging out on the main character's roof all the time. Having less Jesus would've been better, too.
