In 1997, Mr. Chin embarked on a career as an independent producer, serving as executive producer of Harmony Korine's cult film, "Gummo," winner of the International Critics Prize at the Venice Film Festival and KNF Award at the Rotterdam Film Festival. Most recently, Chin produced the critically acclaimed production of "Another Day In Paradise," starring James Woods, Melanie Griffith, Vincent Kartheiser and Natasha Gregson Wagner. Directed by Larry Clark, Chin co-wrote the script with Christopher Landon, based on the book by Eddie Little.
As co-founder of Shanghai'd Films, Chin brings his knowledge and experience of independent filmmaking to complement Shelton's talents and create an innovative hybrid of the two.
