Skye & Chang

Skye & Chang: Friday, November 1, 2013--7:00 pm Evening ScreeningSkye & Chang is a female-buddy martial-arts sci-fi mash-up with awesome Aboriginal superpowers. Skye and Chang are grown-up inner-city kids with black belts and warrior spirits. Skye even has a secret superpower. For Now? Stunt doubles. When a stunt goes wrong, the star thinks she’s targeted for murder and hires Chang as her bodyguard. At their dojo, Skye finds Kisik, a half-mad student convinced a corporation kidnapped her scientist father and are plotting to kill millions. More murder attempts on-set. Mysterious men chasing Kisik. Now is the time for Skye and Chang to be the warriors they always imagined.

I play reluctant superhero Skye Daniels. I am human in that I can fight and perform martial arts and parkour extremely well; as can my BFF Emily Chang (played by actress Olivia Cheng). Skye possesses the supernatural ability to "time-slip," making her able to see what is happening in a different space and time dimension--but she can't control it very well, it just kind of happens. People keep showing up on Skye and Chang's doorstep needing help, and just by their helpful, protective and loyal natures, the pair end up becoming a crime-fighting duo. I love the tag line on the poster, which sums up the story beautifully: You Never Know How Strong You Are Until Being Strong Is Your Only Choice.
