Searching for Asian America
It was an honor to work with the Executive Producer Don Young, who fulfilled this vision of his mentor, and the late Janice Sakamoto, with this series.
A long distance collaboration, NAATA, located on the West Coast, sent me Quick-time files via express mail. I uploaded the music, demo's and finals, to my idisk for their immediate access. The process worked perfectly!
