The goal is to make a cover video of TLC's Waterfalls with friends using toy instruments, typewriter, jugs, and stuff. I've recruited two gal pals to complete the trio:

Tamlyn Tomita (Karate Kid, Joy Luck Club, Hero's..), who is ridiculously funny with a sexy low voice that she's been hiding.

 AND!

Lynn Chen (Saving Face, Nice Girls Crew..), who plays piano and sings like a FIEND 'cause she studied music!!

We'll be joined by kind friends of mine: Goh Nakamura, Greg Friedman, Daniel Blinkoff, Andy Lowe, and more to hold down the song with toy/classroom instruments, water jug, typewriter, bells, and stuff. 

Who's rapping?

Risks and challenges

There will be about 12-15 of us total. Time and practice will be the hardest thing. With set up (camera/lighting), rehearsal, filming, it will take up to 6-8 hours for it all to work. Renting a space will let me control noise, lighting, and work late into the night.

I'm painting a small set, making cheat sheets, meeting the gals to practice typewriter rhythm, doing everything I can to prep for a smooth execution!
