  • Deadly Diversions

    Deadly Diversions (1994)
    Video (Action) Second Unit Director or Assistant Director The computer disc held all the answers and all the dangers. Drake, an everyday man suddenly faces unknown dangers from everywhere - all after the disc. Who can he trust? The man in the black suit? The girl next door who just moved in? Suddenly his quiet suburban life erupts into a harrowing journey through the deadly streets of the Los Angeles he no longer knows or trusts ... Deadly Diversions takes us into all the places of Los Angeles an illegal film crew can go ... and shouldn't go. Each scene could be the film's last if the word isn't given in three languages ... "run, it's the cops, we have no permit." Deadly Diversions is the culmination of dozens of weekends plotting out where to shoot for free and whether great craft services can convince the lead actors to return ... and the belief when someone offers you apprentice ninjas and Mexican wrestlers on tour, you fit them in the script - dammit! There is also nudity. And like in real life, it was under the table ... Written by K. Chang
