This weekend, Emily teamed up again with MY Studios to film another short for a 3-Day Film Challenge. Back in October, Emily appeared in Popped, written by Teddy Ted and directed by May Yam, which premiered as part of the San Jose International Short Film Festival's Horror Genre Challenge and won the Audience Award. This time, the genre was Science Fiction, and again, the 6-minute film must be written, shot, and edited within the three-day time frame. With May Yam at the helm again and Teddy Ted writing the script, Emily and the rest of the team filmed Carrier Three, a science fiction short about three people who must go back in time to save the world. Below is a photo, taken by Ash Ahuja, of Emily as Erin, one of the three time-travelers. The MY Studios team is working on editing in the next two days and the final product will premiere at the IMAX theatre at the Tech Museum in San Jose on June 14th.

Emily will be filming another 72-Hour Film Challenge short this month. The event is another 3-Day Challenge via the San Jose International Film Festival. Emily previously participated in the horror genre version of this challenge back in October, when she filmed Popped with Placeholder Productions, which won the Audience Award for Scariest Film. Several members of the Popped creative team, including director May Yam, are teaming up again for the next SJIFF 3-Day Challenge, which will focus on the science fiction genre. Emily is ecstatic to have been asked to come back and participate as an actor, and can't wait to see the script on Memorial Day weekend when filming will begin!
