Sarah Zerina Usmen and Laurie Tsou pitched "Russian Red #7" film at 1010 Wilshire (a luxury lifestyle community of entrepreuers) to Sunny Cheung and other exceptional financial types with great applause. So impressive in fact that a Pasadena Angel stated he wanted to invest two units toward the film!
Their project, along side other impressive start-up endeavors, were lucky enough to get Sunny's suggestions and comments. These start-up teams are interested in China market and/or capital.
