Tau is known for Keye Luke (2012), a short film biopic on pioneering Asian American actor and artist Keye Luke (portrayed by Feodor Chin), who played the first on-screen Kato in the 1940s Green Hornet decades before Bruce Lee and who was also the All-American "Number One Son", Lee Chan, in the popular Charlie Chan films of the 1930s. He received a Visual Communications "Armed with a Camera" Fellowship for Emerging Media Artists to make the film, and it has screened at over a dozen film festivals worldwide.
