ABOUT THE FILM
YIELD is a short film starring Ali Ewoldt (Broadway: Les Misérables), Jojo Gonzalez (The Smurfs, White Collar, The Sopranos, Law & Order: SVU; OFF-BROADWAY: Obie Award Winner, Best Ensemble for ROMANCE OF MAGNO RUBIO, Ma-Yi Theatre Company), Stephen Conrad Moore, and Kurt Uy about a young martial artist at a major crossroads in his life. It was directed by Leviathan Lab's first Artistic Director Nelson T. Eusebio III, and written by Kurt Uy. YIELD was one of three films participating in Leviathan Lab's 2012 Short Film Initiative. This ambitious development process guided first-time screenwriter/producer Kurt Uy from screenplay readings to pre-production, shooting, and post production in New York.
ABOUT LEVIATHAN LAB'S 2012 SHORT FILM INITIATIVE
Leviathan Lab's 2012 Short Film Initiative was the company's first foray into film and new media. The short film format was ideal for Leviathan's artists to find and refine their skills, and potentially use the films as a calling card to further their continuing work in film and new media. During the initiative, a call for screenplays was solicited from the Leviathan Lab artistic community. Three of the screenplays were chosen by a selection committee for further development. Leviathan Lab provided support for the three films from developmental readings through post-production.
