CAAMFest selects narrative short children's film TADAIMA to advance as semi-finalist in their annual Ready, Set, Pitch grant competition.
Attached to the project are writer/director Robin Takao D’Oench (Tisch ’11), cinematographer Mingjue Hu (Tisch ’11), producer Vincent Hall (UC Santa Cruz '07) and executive producer Claire Brooks (Gallatin ’11). To date, they have collaborated on over 6 films.
