During their very hectic modeling and traveling schedules,
Southern California based twin sisters Ada and Arlene have been
busy writing. Their first short feature is already financed and
in production this summer. "The story line is close to some
of our own personal experiences. It's a comedy about dating and
friends," says Ada.
A second script has also been completed. The script is developed
for a feature length motion picture to be named "The Last Oracle."
"It's an action adventure about a missing relic in China," says
As you can tell from the versatility of the images above,
and on Arlene's page, these sisters can play many different types
of roles. There was also a full page ad in the June 30, 1999 edition
of the Wall Street Journal featuring their "corporate" images for
a major global investment firm promotion.
When we met Ada and Arlene, they were modeling fashions at
the Jackie Chan - Hong Kong Tourist Association reception in Beverly
Hills, and then flying off to Paris on assignment the next day.
Ada graciously lent us the use of one of her images for our story
on Asian Make-up by renowned
make-up artist Bobbi Brown. Her gorgeous photo also appeared in
our original AsianConnections splash page of our inaugural launch
early this year, which is soon to be released as a downloadable
screen saver for all AsianConnections members.
As we catch up with Ada and Arlene this summer '99, their
non-stop pace continues. In addition to completing the two scripts
and producing one into a short feature, they have also finished
photo shoots in New York and acted in a soon to-be-released independent
film by Steve Dunning.
AsianConnections looks forward to viewing the upcoming work
of these talented sisters both in front of and behind the camera.

The Tai twins premiered their first production "Rock, Paper,

at the Asian American Pacific Film and Video Festival in May 2000.
