About SunRain Productions
SunRain began as a partnership of two filmmakers, Rain Breaw and Charlene Sun. The duo began working together while in film school at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts. After numerous successful projects together, the pair decided to combine their complimentary skills in an official capacity.
SunRain has emerged into an LLC, with an extensive web-development background and numerous short video and film projects including PSAs, music and wedding videos. We have also branched out into creative partnerships with other individuals and small design/development shops.
Charlene Sun was taken from us suddenly in early 2009. Her artistry, joy and integrity will always be present in the work of SunRain Productions. To contribute to the Sun Cinematography Award, click here.
