  • (1888PressRelease) November 21, 2016 - HOLLYWOOD - "Sometimes, growing up is hard." The axiom for the new, inspiring, humorous, cleverly written motion picture Change of Address applies not only to individuals but also to entire industries - even show business. Because…everything changes.

    Today, Bubba Chin Productions, LLC, announced that it has begun investor and financing outreach to cover the expenses involved with producing the upcoming dramedy film Change of Address. In addition to entertainment industry investment outreach, the company will also be launching a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to begin seeking funding for this fun, unique, coming-of-age motion picture. Slated for release in 2017, the Ken Wood-penned project is scheduled to begin production spring 2017.

    With characters based in different segments of show business, the film cleverly tackles the issues of change and maturation in people and relationships, while the production itself addresses change in the entertainment industry. The current call for investors and funding provides an outstanding opportunity for individuals who are already involved with film financing, or those looking to get into the business, to be associated with a fantastic project about change, initiating change and creating conversation about change.

    "As artists, we understand that we're the ones who need to make changes. If we want to see more diversity in leading roles in Hollywood, it's up to us to be the first to strive to make changes and show what's possible in today's interconnected world," said Phoenix Wong, Executive Producer, Bubba Chin Productions. "We want to produce a quality product, pay a diverse cast of actors. We are already fortunate for SAG-AFTRA and their ability to change with the times as we look to operate under one of their new contracts which allows us to make a movie using both SAG and highly qualified non-SAG actors."

    Hollywood and major motion picture production companies are currently caught up in the unequal, longstanding casting issue known as "whitewashing." In the entire history of Hollywood, filmmakers have continually used Caucasian actors to portray characters of minority backgrounds. From the whitewashed casting of Native American roles in early Western pictures to today's box-office features, the inclination seems to be recognized but not remedied. This has happened most recently and glaringly with the casting of a white woman (Scarlett Johansson) in the main role (Major Motoko Kusanagi, a Japanese cyborg policewoman) of Paramount Pictures' potential 2017 blockbuster Ghost in the Shell, based on a popular Japanese manga and anime series.

    Change of Address is in an extraordinary position in regards to bringing light to the racial equation in Hollywood, as the film has a main character of Asian decent. The project is also enticing for financiers as it has a rare, marvelous element in its favor which is the capability to be shot on a modest budget due to the fact that most of the film takes place in a one-bedroom apartment.

    "With financial assistance we can get this story told, put it out on one of the Internet's New Media platforms and show the filmmaking industry that they need to change. We are seeking investors and starting a Kickstarter campaign because we believe this is a great story and we already have a phenomenal actor to play the lead," said Wong. "We want to continue to make people recognize and start the change that needs to take place. But in order to do that, we are reaching out to invite people to be involved with and part of this amazing production. If someone is unable to help with financing or a donation, it is our hope that they will pass the word of the existence of this exciting opportunity along to their family and friends."

    Change of Address is a classic American story about a guy in show business who never accepts or wanted to accept change, being happy and content living in a one-bedroom apartment with his longtime girlfriend. But change rapidly ensues when the couple unexpectedly has a child on the way and they become engaged and new homeowners. When others enter the picture to help with the home move, the perplexity of the unwanted change takes on outrageous proportions.
