Here is the Q & A with Yen Tan and Eric about the up-coming film Pit Stop and much more.  Through out the piece are examples of Yen Tan’s great graphic design work!

Eric talks about the way in which the Texas Theatre is trying to help Texas Filmmakers.

Yen gives a synopsis of Pit Stop.

Yen expands on the synopsis by explaining how the outsider is someone he’s always intrigued by and that isolated feeling is reflected in his writing.

Yen brought up his own college experiences as an example of the unique isolation that engulfed his world and how that parallels the character’s isolated feeling in the Pit Stop Script.

I asked Yen about when the idea for Pit Stop came about.

Yen talks about Pit Stop being a change in terms of how he’ll cast the movie.

Yen talks about what he’s learned from Ciao and how those experiences have influenced his early choices with Pit Stop.

Eric talks about trying to showcase the different parts and sides of Texas.

Yen talks about trying to showcase the intriguing sides of Texas.

Yen explains how this unique small-town feel creates a intriguing point-of-view for those same minorities.

One element of the story of Pit Stop is the impact the internet has had on the gay small town resident.

Eric and Yen talk about what Wednesday Night is going to be like.

Yen’s dry sense of humor is something you don’t expect and yet it really showcases why its so easy to be friends with him.  For Instance, Yen gives his “Coming To America” moment!

Yen Tan’s film Ciao has a unique falling in a far off place.

And that leads to quite possibly the best way to some up what Yen Tan’s ULTIMATE GOAL in Film is!!!
