Chino Shorts is a creative collective I organized to film original sketch comedy and short films. Alongside my co-writer-in-crime Ariely Garcia, it exists to build a creative community, connecting talent and bridging diverse minds for collaborations. 
Fun fact: a year after filming this, I actually switched to a plant-based diet.

Behind The Meme: What would the company look like that created internet memes? Well, meetings (around real trending memes) would transpire exactly how you explain a meme to your parents or grandparents. 
Feels: An eclectic gang of dumb and narcissistic misfit friends are ten years out of high school. The series pilot centers around Alex and his ambivalent quest: whether or not to attend the funeral of a girl he kiiinda dated back in high school. Some of his friends have bad advice, others have worse. There's no hard feelings in "Feels" because everyone's soft af. 
Onion Tears: Donny can only cry when he cuts onions. Coincidentally, he works at an onion-themed restaurant. But he cannot bring himself to emotional tears... except when he has to face some real feelings. 
Heaven Hotline: It's your typical workplace sitcom, but the business is prayers and eternal salvation. Each prayer gets answered by The Heaven Hotline, 9-to-5 angel call center employees. Please hold, they don't know what they're doing... and that's why your prayers aren't getting answered. 
It Feels Better: Charlie's your teenage misfit. She's growing up and figuring it out. But it's not just another coming-of-age she's going through. She's pregnant. The father is her best friend who moved away for college. We follow her pulling herself together, or at least trying, and deciding whether or not to keep the baby.
