Art School Dropouts is an east coast based digital media group that creates original narrative-driven content.
With our skill sets on action filmmaking and comedic acting, we aim to entertain through martial arts and comedic action much like Jackie Chan or Charlie Chaplan; all the while incorporating fresh, new ideas from cultural trends of inspirations to modern day media, from comic books to anime.
The blend is a refreshing look at nostalgic action for new and old fans of the action genre.

AKA Director Senpai
Senpai, notice me?
More like notice Senpai. Joey is our creative genius behind all of our shoots. He writes, shoots, choreographs, and edits. He basically does everything. And after a long day of exhausting that genius brain of his, he always needs a massage. It is customary in our group that we all walk on his back until he falls asleep.

Mom... Mom... MOM!
As the mom of the group, Steph handles a lot! She is our producer, production manager, bookings, castings, and everything business. Odds are, you'll be in communication with Mom. Not only does she manage all us kids, but she models and acts on top of everything! So check out her photos and other social media!
As our resident cosplayer, Tin has been an avid member of the “convention” community. If anyone knows what convention life is, there is a lot of travel, eating out and sightseeing for photoshoots. Who else better to show amazing new places to eat and visit than someone who has accumulated those experiences in all of his years.

"From the very start, I knew I was building something special. Something unique.
And after countless tears and laughter, I realized I was building a family; because it's not the blood that makes you family, but the loyalty.
So, after a year's worth of ideas, we finally settled upon our logo.
Our family's crest.
For those that know me, hopefully this symbol echoes with you all.
Our first mantra: Birth through Action.
In the middle is a lotus, a plant that blooms in mud, persevering through all odds.
But ideals means nothing without action; the four blades protect that concept.
Our second mantra: Everything and Nothing.
Greatness but humble.
A warrior in peacetime.
To be enlightened but earthly.
To us, our logo means everything. It's the symbol we carry on our backs and hearts every time we go out to fight for what we believe in.
Birth through Action.
Everything and Nothing."
- Joey Min, Director Senpai
