HBO Visionaries - Hidden Blue

About Me: My name is Hajin Rhim. I'm an Asian-American producer, director, cinematographer, steadicam operator, editor & colorist. I studied Cinematography and producing at the New York Film Academy. I'm also a medically retired US Army Veteran.

The Project: With your help, I would like to shoot and enter my short film in to the HBO's asian director short film contest. 3 short film winners will be selected and aired on hbo. 

My Goal: As an Asian-American director, I feel it my duty to bring more diversity in casting roles to Hollywood feature films. With your help, I will get there and do just that.

Based on a true story, Hidden Blue is about an undocumented Korean immigrant named Chris and his best friend Mark, a Korean-American U.S. Citizen. Chris accepts a business  opportunity that will enable him to get legal status in the US, but is suddenly thrown in to an unexpected crisis. While Mark attempts to pick up the broken pieces, they both learn just how far people are willing to go, due to greed.

Important notes: I have the pleasure of having on board, the most talented director of photography, Joshua Echevarria.

Financiers & Investors: If you are interested in becoming an exective producer for my short film or an associate producer, please contact me and I will gladly send you the script. Thank you so much for your time and support.
