Take Out title

Take Out is a feature film shot on digital video due to both the cinema vérité style and the non-existent budget. Employing an ensemble cast of both professional and nonprofessional actors, and shooting without a full crew in an actual take-out restaurant during operating hours, gave filmmakers Tsou and Baker a liberating experience in which acting and story became the only concern. The "run and gun" method of filmmaking created a raw energy that the filmmakers feel they have captured on film.

Taking cues from the filmmaking of Ken Loach and the Dardenne brothers, Take Out puts a distinctly human face on the lives of people largely hidden from and ignored by the main stream.
