I got the idea for SWHNLF when I was out for dinner with my wife and overheard the most awkward first date. It hurt to sit next to these two people, but then I wondered who they were and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
Another note about the film is that I strive to place minority characters in non-stereotyped roles. In this short, two minorities are on a date. I know it's subtle, but it's my way of saying that Asian-Americans can be more than a non-speaking background actor, a nurse, or a martial arts character. It's never brought to attention that they are Asian-American. They are people who are the main characters in their story. Asian-Americans can be leads that look for love.
