FRIENDSHIP, TRAGEDY, AND A HIGH SCHOOL PACT, DRIVE A GROUP OF ASIAN-CANADIAN TWENTYSOMETHINGS TO BECOME MILLIONAIRES BEFORE THEY TURN 30. FACED WITH THE MASSIVE PRESSURE TO SUCCEED IN A YOUTH AND WEALTH-OBSESSED SOCIETY, HOW FAR WILL THESE FRIENDS GO TO GET RICH QUICK?

 

Toronto, ON — Jaded Pictures and the ReelWorld Film Festival are proud to present the Toronto premiere of MILLIONS, an intricate portrayal of Asian-Canadian millennials mining their life ambitions, while confronting the obstacles that come with love, sex, drugs, and greed. Praised as a “brave drama” by Tubefilter at the 2013 New York TV Festival and Winner of “Best Direction” at the 2013 Marseille Web Fest, MILLIONS explores the dark side of ambition with a group of diverse Asian-Canadian characters that shatter stereotypes and give us a genuine look at contemporary life as an Asian growing up in North America. This cast of characters proves that Asians too can behave as good or as bad as they want to.

 

Created by first-time director, Andrew C, MILLIONS stars veteran award-winning actor and playwright Ins Choi of the critically acclaimed play, Kim’s Convenience, as Ron, rising Asian-Canadian talent, Hubert Tran (XIII: The Series) as Brandon and Jasmine Chen (Warehouse 13) as Mary, professional dancers Andrew “Pyro” Chung (So You Think You Can Dance Canada) as Deron and Lee “Lethal” Pham (of the world renowned Supernaturalz B-Boy crew) as Eddie, and newcomers, Stephan Kim as Charlie, Ben Brillantes as Jay and Tanya Mok as Lia. MILLIONS features appearances by popular YouTube stars, J-Reyez, Shannon T. Boodram and ShaqIsDope and immensely popular Toronto DJ, Dave “DJ Serious” Yan.

Joining director Andrew C on the creative team are executive producer Melanie Chung (Word, Goodbye Karrie), producer Ben Brillantes, cinematographer and co-producer Christian Peterson, and composer, TMB (producer of Juno-nominated artist, JRDN).

Following the festival, MILLIONS will make its World Premiere online as a series for eight consecutive weeks, starting April 28, 2014 at 8PM EST at youtube.com/MillionsTheSeries.

Jaded Pictures is a trailblazing production company committed to telling compelling stories driven by character, raw emotion, fast-pace, and sarcastic wit. MILLIONS is Jaded’s first feature-length production. For more information and to see the trailer: MillionsTheSeries.com.
