Thang Ho  Here to learn and tell human stories. @hocastudio

This is one of my favorite scenes from my first short film I did in early 2017.
We somehow ended up doing a lot of long takes in this film without knowing that it was a cool thing for a filmmaker to do. I really like this scene because the dynamic that it translates visually through the movement of the actors in relation with the movement of the camera as they exchange lines from a Shakespeare play whilst playing basketball. @joebrottmanart and I crafted the scene together and @thiendam executed it beautifully. Not to mention @junior.cius and @camaronpringles crushed it with their lines while trying to get their passes right. Outtakes of Junior missing the hoops coming soon hahaha.
Just kidding.
Full film link in bio.
P/s: @eleazerw makes his sneaky cameo in the back.

@vishvesh_bakshi gets excited before putting on protection.

(1/2) This week marks my one year in film school. But the moment that I knew I wanted to make films for the rest of my life, was when I got to make my first film with these people. It is a story about a struggling black actor trying to make it in theatre school. A crazy ride it has been and we've all come so far since then.
About a year and a half ago, I made my first short film ever with one little camera and no equipment. I'm proud of it, not because of what I've made, but because of the people I've got to make it with. I am honored to be able to be a part of my friend @junior.cius ’s life story. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart with me and allowing me to tell this story.
I've contemplated sharing this for a long time for many reasons. But here we are. I'm excited to share with you the trailer of the film. I'll be sharing the whole film with you next week on my Vimeo account https://vimeo.com/hocastudio along many exciting projects we have coming up next.

Thank you to all my cast and crew for trusting in me, when I had nothing at the time.

Our shenanigans.

I’ve been watching this guy almost literally everyday for the last 6 years. And as creepy as that may sound, @markellislive is one of my favorite people and is one of the reasons why I’m pursuing a career in filmmaking today. So thankful for his work at @collidervideo and finally getting to meet the dude was dope. Really cool line up, and truly a classy guy, his stand up was fantastic and we stuck around to talk. We got to drink to @jonschnepp as well.
Thanks man, it was such a pleasure meeting you!

The other day, a few friends and I went on a little hike on Pine Mountain Trail just about 45 minutes north of Atlanta.
Now, a bunch of filmmakers aren’t going to be the fittest bunch you’d see I can tell you that much (even though we should be). The hike wasn’t hard, nothing crazy happened in this little conquest. It was just a nice day, that I got to spend time with my friends, to ask how they’re doing, to complain about how hot it is, to geek out about how much #PlanetEarth blew our minds, etc.
It was just a simple day. That I really enjoyed.

My co-star @shaundozier and I out here drinking coffee in @vishvesh_bakshi ‘s comedy noir.

Films can be a good way to live your ego-boosting fantasy. Few days ago, I lived mine in @vishvesh_bakshi noir film.

Had the pleasure to edit and color these shots from @shortfilmlotus which was shot by one of my good partners @vishvesh_bakshi 👊
The film was directed by @thedutchied and produced by @meghnaland 🧠
We just finished the rough cut and we believe we may have something special. And we couldn’t have done it without our talented crew and our sponsor at @majiteabar And @northatlantadance ❤️

When crew pictures keep getting stranger. First set DPing after a while. Primarily been focusing on Directing and Producing, it was nice to get back to where it all started.
