A New Comedy Short Film Narrated by Star Trek’s George Takei, “Oh My!”

A new comedy short film by Derek Nguyen called “The Potential Wives of Norman Mao” is being completed now, and is Executive Produced and Narrated by none other than Star Trek’s George Takei.

Here’s how the filmmakers describe the film: Norman Mao is an overweight, and socially-awkward man-child from Hong Kong, who at the age of 33 is still unwed. Desperate to get him married, his parents take him on an international junket across the globe to find him a worthy Chinese wife. The Maos arrive to a New York City hotel, which is their final stop on their trip and their last hope to find Norman a bride. Having hired a professional matchmaking service, the Maos meet with three matches for Norman. Will one of these women be a potential wife for Norman or is he destined to lead a terribly lonely life?

As the film reaches the post production phase, the film team has launched a Kickstarter Campaign where people just like you can contribute to the film’s completion. There are all levels of contributions, however the $250 & $500 level pledges caught our eye. If you donate at the $250 level you will receive (among other things) a copy of the script signed by George Takei and the filmmakers, and an invitation to a festival premiere party. If you donate at the $500 level you receive everything from the $250 level plus an official film poster signed by George Takei. …we think that deserves another …”Oh My!”
