Yin, one of our MBA program students, has a real gift in singing. You’d be amazed at how she expresses herself just by sing such a beautiful song.
Friends are like family, they gather around you and push you to find who you really are in a way that even family members often fail to make you realise.
Tiger ladies, in or out of their little communities of career, friendship, love and many more, are just simply defined as the “Gucci Bag Ladies”, who over stress themselves with costumes and make-ups. They all share that part of inner beauties that are hidden underskin but shine through all their lives.
Our Tiger Ladies Movie management team have decided to attend the next upcoming Transmedia SF showcase that will be held at SF School of Digital Filmmaking, on Tuesday, May 29, 2012.
Unlike the previous similar session ran by Transmedia SF, instead of presentations, we are doing face-to-face demos by the table, where we could show around our filming ideas and business strategies with slide shows and brief presentations. This is a nice way to enhance understanding of our project through a more intimate channel of communication.
Entrance tickets are sold on Eventbrite: http://tmsfshowcase.eventbrite.com/ (Early Adopter tickets are now sold out. You still have the chance to both Transmedia Curious and Door Deal).
The event itself will last for 3 hours, from 6.00pm to 9.00pm.
Location:SF School of Digital Filmmaking

Tiger Ladies is a fairy-tale-like independent film written by Mr. Sheridan Tatsuno, screen writer while a successful business man who works as the principal of Dreamscape Global, San Francisco, CA (his biography see: link). This movie is now at pre-production stage and is managed by a group of young graduate students from the University of San Francisco. It’s a movie about dreams coming true. Aftermath the hardship from the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, people were seen ended up in the streets as they witnessed their own business got totally damaged by the dramatic swing in the global economy. Money was only one dimension of all the disasters. What was all in the hearts of these people (?)- families got separated, lovers fell apart, friends…well if you could still call them “in-need” when they were also as damaged as we were. Being tough in minds seemed the only solution of the problems.
Mei was tired of all this, her tiger mom, who was the CEO of a huge real estate company in China. She left her mom for good, for her dream to become a pop singer in States. And what follows were even harder challenges she’d ever to experience…
Mei (Wei) and Carol (Wendy) are suddenly kicked out of a friend’s apartment and fired, respectively, without much money, and scramble to find shelter at an artists studio to get off the streets of San Francisco. Urged to move on, they must save the studio from eviction by a greedy developer who wants to build luxury dot.com offices, as well as deal with their personal demons — Mei’s fight with her “tiger mom” and Carol’s depression from losing her daughter to a preventable accident. The two women bond — a serious, must-win immigrant coaxed by a Fellinesque clown whose zany facade is a cover for her crying inside. The women and their newfound artist and homeless friends confront the evil developer behind the landlord — Mei’s mother — a hard-driving, greedy Beijing realtor who was an aspiring opera singer until she married a rich developer out of desperation. In the final climax, the mother demands that Mei return home, but Mei refuses until her younger sister, Lin, sings a childhood song to break the deadlock between the two “Tiger Ladies”.
San Francisco is currently undergoing a revival of its local fashion and film industries. “Tiger Ladies,” a comedy movie written and to be produced by Sheridan Tatsuno, is the first independent feature movie to explore the emerging fashion scene — featuring youth streetwear to professional clothes and haute couturue.
Starring actors from “Amadeus,” “Milk,” Beijing and Russia, “Tiger Ladies” is an urban fairytale about Mei, a young aspiring singer from Beijing running away from her “Tiger Mom”, who wants to make it big in America, but ends up couchsurfing in San Francisco after discovering that her friend left town. Unable to speak much English, Mei meets Carol, a high-powered VP of Marketing who is laid off and ends up fighting with Mei over the same couch.
In a frolicking journey to save their artist friends from being evicted from their studio, Mei and Carol bond and learn how street artists and the homeless survive in the City. Aided by their newly-found artist friends, they battle to save their studio from a big-box developer building million-dollar condos and face the developer in a surprising showdown on the streets of San Francisco.
Starring Karl-Heinz Teuber, the wig fitter in “Amadeus”, and Wendy Tremont King, Supervisor Carol Ruth Silver in “Milk,” the movie debuts singers Wei Ren and Yin Yin from Beijing and Anya Bykova from Russia. Andre Champagne will lead the video production team. “Tiger Ladies” will host online fashion contests to select local clothing, bag and accessory designs for the movie.
