Burbank, CA – April 22, 2019 – Some associations are
more serendipitous than others and for Mohit Soni
and Chang Park
their first meeting blossomed into an enduring friendship,resulting in
award-winning work collaborations. Together, they’re killing it in Hollywood.
“I first met Chang on the set of the music video
“Aliens” he was directing for Dynamine,”
said Soni. “We work extremely well together. We just seem to instinctively know
what the other person’s vision is for the projects we’ve worked together on.”
Soni is a producer from Rajasthan, India, and Park
is a South Korean director from Southern California. Their most recent project
Colors” that’s streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime to
the UK, U.S., Germany and Japan.
The short film is the story of an artist that must
learn to see the world differently when he becomes color blind. It was a
passion project for both of them in honor of a mutual friend and designed to
bring awareness about color blindness and its effects.
“Mohit is always a passionate and intelligent
producer,” said Park. “When I first told him about this story, he totally
agreed with my opinion and supported my plan. He knows me very well and I don’t
have to tell him what I want on set. He already knows my concerns and takes
care of it – he’s a genuinely nice guy that’s kind to the cast and crew.”
After “Aliens,” they teamed up again on “Saving the World,”
a music video for Nessa Rica. Soni reciprocated, bringing Park on board for his
short film “Hinjews” and Park immediately asked Soni to join him on “Bridging
Colors,” a project that’s already earned numerous awards
at film festivals.
Park holds a Bachelor’s degree in filmmaking from
the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles and Soni received his BFA degree in
filmmaking from the New York Film Academy. As a producer, it also helps that
Soni has a background in commerce and entrepreneurship. He has an interest in
history, costumes and views every project as a new adventure. They both have
more than 30 productions to their credit in multiple genres.
Soni and Park have each separately worked on more
than 30 projects in multiple genres and viewevery project as a new adventure.“Film
producing is fun, it can be an intimidating task, and it will test you in every
way possible.You need to be a multitasker, a people person and a problem
“It’s fun to put all the puzzle pieces together,”
continued Soni. “You have to deal with a lot of different personalities and
you’ll hear lots of “no” before you get a “yes.” Nothing is more rewarding than
when I see the script and all the hard work come together on the screen.”
Soni has carried that passion to every production
company with which he’s worked, that includes a number of high-profile
companies that include Dynamic Features, Warner Bros. Studio, Adobe, Pernel
Media, Planet C Studios, Emblem Entertainment, and Lifetime TV to name a few.
Currently working with Dynamic Features, he has upcoming projects with Ox
Films, Paramore Entertainment and he’s working with prestigious model agencies.
His award-winning projects run the gamut from horror
and drama to comedy and period pieces, some of which touch upon controversial
subjects. Among his highly-acclaimed projects are “Hinjews,”
“Wild Nights with Emily,” and “Loss of Grace” to be released later in
2019,along with “Blood
& Water” now in post-production. His credits
also include music videos encompassing “IshqNashila” and “Coco.”
Park’s list of credits is equally impressive. He’s
won numerous national and international awards for his work that includes the
short “The Script,” the feature “Look Back,” the documentaries “Dancing High in
LA” and the “Dream Project.” He’s currently working on “The Walk” that’s in
There are three basic criteria Soni looks at when
deciding whether a project is right – writing, the filmmakers, and financing.
“The quality of the script is crucial,” said Soni.
“If the writing isn’t strong, the film won’t be successful. I don’t want to waste
anyone’s time or money if the script isn’t solid. Next are the filmmakers
involved. If they’re hard to work with, you’re going to regret it no matter how
great the script is. Then there’s financing and budget. If the money isn’t
there, the film is going to suffer. And I follow Murphy’s Law – anything that
can go wrong, will.”
Soni and Park have
proven to be a cinematic dynamic duo when it comes to filmmaking and both only
become stronger with each project they work on whether it’s together or
independently. That fortuitous meeting on the set of “Aliens” could almost be
described as karma. It was the meeting of two great minds that really are
killing it in Hollywood.
