Crew

Erin Lau

Writer/Director

Native Hawaiian Erin Lau is a Sundance Institute Native lab fellow and a University of Hawaiʻi Academy for Creative Media alum. She has written and directed multiple award-winning shorts, which have screened at festivals around the world, including New Zealand, France, Guam, Shanghai, and Canada. Her most prominent work, Little Girl’s War Cry, was selected by the Film Raro Competition to be one of six fully funded and produced films in the Cook Islands. Other accolades include the Sino-US Student Documentary Award at the 2012 Shanghai International Film Festival and the 2013 Eurocinema Best Student Film Award. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Film Directing at Chapman University on a full ride merit scholarship. Despite her deep passion for storytelling, especially fictional tales based in the Asian-Pacific community, Erin fears she will lose all her hair by the time she retires.

Justin Omori

Writer

Raised in Hilo, Hawaii, Justin Omori was instilled with a love for art and storytelling while hiking across fields of lava carrying his father’s camera equipment.  He received his bachelor’s degree in film production from the Academy for Creative Media (ACM) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in 2014. Since then, Justin has worked on a wide variety of projects including Hawaii 5-0, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Justin currently lives in Los Angeles and questions his decision to move here every day.

Olivia Gray

Producer

OLIVIA GRAY’s passion for sharing meaningful stories has led her to a background in entertainment marketing, distribution, and production. After she received her BA in Journalism and Art History from the University of San Diego, she worked in entertainment marketing and international distribution until she began using her vacation days to film a documentary project and fell in love with filmmaking. Since then, she has worked on a variety of projects, including shorts, narrative features, documentaries, and an international documentary series that filmed in twenty countries. She moved from Austin, Texas to Los Angeles to attend Chapman University’s MFA in Film/Television Producing program. She loves producing films, but there’s a part of the job she hates: filming often requires her to miss Steelers football games, so she records them. But, she has no self control when it comes to sports, so she looks up the score…it’s a never-ending internal battle.

Anton Jiracek

Cinematographer

From the colorful Pacific Northwest, Anton discovered his passion for the outdoors at a young age. He attended the University of Idaho where he majored in both Broadcasting and Music Composition. Anton is continuing his studies at Chapman University, where he has served both as a cinematographer and composer on various shorts. In his spare time, he enjoys playing the clarinet and hiking.

Fun fact: Rachel doesn’t like onions.

Alana Bombino

Production Designer

Alana Bombino enjoys bringing worlds to life in film visually. She spent her time in the Academy for Creative Media at the University of Hawaii at Manoa helping fellow students design their sets. She also earned professional experience while being an art PA on “Hawaii 5-0” , “King Kong: Skull island”, and “Snatched”. She is most known for her production design work on local feature “Go For Broke”.

Rachel Bassett

Sound Designer

Rachel Bassett (sometimes called Super-Sound- Girl) didn’t discover the magic of sound design until 6 years go, but once she did she fell in love with it so much that she changed her major (so long astrophysics!) and ultimately received her B.F.A. in Theatre Arts: Design & Technology (emphasis in Sound Design) from the University of Central Oklahoma. To make up for lost time with the love of her life (aka sound design) Rachel is currently pursuing an M.F.A. in Film Production: Sound Design at Chapman University. Rachel hopes to one day be a teacher so she can share her love of sound with anyone and everyone she encounters while still having the time to create new aural worlds of her own. (Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?) Fun fact: Rachel actually loves onions; they just don’t love her back. (Just like her unrequited love for Anton.)

Yurim Han

Editor

Yurim Han was born in South Korea. She has always had a strong curiosity about the human condition, which led her to study psychology in Tokyo, Japan. In the midst of this course of study, she discovered her passion for using what she learned  to tell provocative and believable fictional tales. It’s then that she came to the US to pursue her dream of weaving these tales into films. Currently, She is working on her MFA in Film Production at Chapman University. She can’t wait to see her name roll in the credits  on the big screen, and hopes to tell stories people can emotionally resonate with, regardless of their background.
