About the film: I’ve always been a fan of movies that portray love and relationships honestly and frankly. These types of films are rich with memorable lines, situations and characters that linger in your mind for days or weeks after viewing. This is why I was instantly drawn to “Chasing Valentine.” It deals with universal issues that carry over no matter what the audiences’ geographical or cultural background is. Basic human emotion is something that drives everyone, anywhere. As our characters peel away their emotional layers and reveal their true selves, we become more acquainted with them and their darkest secrets and emotions.

Current Status: Fundraising / Pre-Production
