About this project

We want to encourage more diversity in casting lead roles in Hollywood films.

A classic American story about how change rapidly ensues when a couple unexpectedly has a child on the way and they become engaged and new homeowners. When others enter the picture to help with the home move , the perplexity of the unwanted change takes on outrageous proportions. About This Project: After shopping for houses, the pair finally decides to relocate from their dingy one bedroom apartment to their new home. On the day of the move, a colorful group of friends and Tony’s brother arrive to help. They include: Mario and Adele, a quirky interracial couple with their own issues; Tony’s brother Jersey, a local television weatherman and semi - celebrity; Chase, their foul - mouthed neighbor; and Peggy, their former neighbor who’s now a luscious brunette thanks to plastic surgery. She got all the work done to win the heart of the man she's madly in love with. Unfortunately, that man happens to be Tony.

With characters based in different segments of show business, the film cleverly tackles the issues of change and maturation in people and relationships, while the production itself addresses change in the entertainment industry. The current call for investors and funding provides an outstanding opportunity for individuals who are already involved with film financing, or those looking to get into the business, to be associated with a fantastic project about change, initiating change and creating conversation about change.

The lead roles is played by show business veteran Garret T. Sato (Tony Turner)

Change Starts With Us

“As artists, we understand that we’re the ones who need to make changes. If we want to see more diversity in leading roles in Hollywood, it’s up to us to be the first to strive to make changes and show what’s possible in today’s interconnected world,” said Phoenix Wong, Executive Producer, Bubba Chin Productions. “We want to produce a quality product, pay a diverse cast of actors. We are already fortunate for SAG-AFTRA and their ability to change with the times as we look to operate under one of their new contracts which allows us to make a movie using both SAG and highly qualified non-SAG actors.”

THE HOLLYWOOD “WHITEWASHING” QUAGMIRE 

Hollywood and major motion picture production companies are currently caught up in the unequal, longstanding casting issue known as “whitewashing.” In the entire history of Hollywood, filmmakers have continually used Caucasian actors to portray characters of minority backgrounds. From the whitewashed casting of Native American roles in early Western pictures to today’s box-office features, the inclination seems to be recognized but not remedied. This has happened most recently and glaringly with the casting of a white woman (Scarlett Johansson) in the main role (Major Motoko Kusanagi, a Japanese cyborg policewoman) of Paramount Pictures’ potential 2017 blockbuster Ghost in the Shell, based on a popular Japanese manga and anime series.

Change of Address is in an extraordinary position in regards to bringing light to the racial equation in Hollywood, as the film has a main character of Asian decent. The project is also enticing for financiers as it has a rare, marvelous element in its favor which is the capability to be shot on a modest budget due to the fact that most of the film takes place in a one-bedroom apartment.

Risks and challenges

I think it was Steven Spielberg who said, " film making is disaster management." What could go wrong, will go wrong. But, we're experienced enough to handle many of the problems that will likely arise.

This is a film about change, and one that can start a discussion about change. Hollywood still, in 2016, casts non-Asian actors in Asian character roles.
