"After the screening, SHOOT held the Meet the New Directors panel discussion in which four of the directors participated, all of whom are as of yet unaffiliated with a production company: Erica Eng, Shaya Mulcahy, Brad Raider and Brett Warkentien.
Eng earned inclusion for her short film Harold Gold's POISON and has come up the industry ranks with internships at Spyglass Entertainment and HSI Productions, serving as an assistant at PRETTYBIRD and as an executive assistant for filmmaker Michael Mann. She recently directed a spec commercial as a fellow of the CDDP. Eng was one of six promising talents selected from some 400 CDDP applicants to benefit from an industry workshop, mentorship and support in the making of a spec piece of their own choosing. Eng's spec PSA centers on Homebody Industries in Los Angeles, a rehab group which gives a second chance to gang members, ex-cons and others, putting them on a positive path to career advancement. Eng's piece focuses on acclaimed actor Richard Cabral (American Crime, Lethal Weapon), a Homebody alum."
