The Seed is a 2005 short-film starring Will Yun Lee and Peter Mensah, produced and directed by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park and Ken Mercado. Joe Hahn is now taking his career as a director further with his upcoming film, Mall, set to come out in 2014.
The Seed follows the events surrounding a homeless veteran named Ken Mercado, played by Will Yun Lee. Living along the banks of the Los Angeles River, he is attacked by masked men in black vehicles, invisible to the eye. To any passers-by, Mercado appears to have some sort of mental illness, but as he is chased throughout the city, it is revealed to the audience that he is not in fact paranoid, but rather the victim of a government conspiracy. Ken's adversaries are visible to him, yet only visible to the audience part of the time. At the end of the film, an alien ship is visible in the sky, watching the scene.
The Seed was first released at the Pusan International Film Festival in 2006. It was also shown at the Festivus Film Festival in Denver, CO where it won "Best Short Short" in 2008. The Seed was awarded the "Outstanding Cinematography" award at the 2007 Veneration Film Festival in Newport. Later in 2008 The Seed will be entered at various festivals including the Swansea Bay Film Festival in England, the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the Beverly Hills Film Festival, the Malibu Film Festival, and the Los Angeles United Film Festival.
