“I first came up with the idea for “Like A Boss” back in 2012. Back then the story was about an unemployed guy who feels inferior to his girlfriend who have a high paying job and was afraid of her dumping him because of his work status. The story idea didn’t sound exciting enough to me so I start brainstorming again. Then it hit me, I asked myself what if a guy gets beat up by random guys in front his girlfriend? But what if the guy’s girlfriend knew martial arts and beat up his opponents for him? And there you have it, a compelling story idea filled with action and humor that also deals with the complicating social roles of gender. I hope people will enjoy themselves while watching the film and have a better understanding of what it means to be in a relationship despite of gender roles.”
