Welp, we’re in lockdown, baby. It ain’t been easy, and how I feel about it is not only a minute by minute rollercoaster, but also I’m sure the subject of another post. In the meantime, please enjoy this short I wrote with Rachel Callman and shot with Richard DiLorenzo and Sydney Walsh. It was made in 48 hours with very little resources, but hey. We did a thing in a tough time, ate plenty of pancakes and had a laugh or two while doing it. Special thanks to Richard 🧡.
I wrote a new short! Excited to keep workshopping it and hope to shoot it this summer.
Speaking of workshopping, I got the opportunity to perform with an amazing organization called Club B.Y.O.S.S. They want to bring writers and filmmakers together to celebrate short scripts with the belief that scripts shouldn’t have to be produced in order for the story to be shared. The written piece alone is worth an audience!
See below some pics from the event and info about the short!
Welp, we’ve a great go of things with my short film Katie and Ben. So proud of the people who did this little films with me: Michael, Nell, Julia, Melissa, Jimmy. We played at a bunch of festivals, won a bunch of awards, but I gotta say this last one was my fave. Best Actress. Thank you California Women’s Film Festival for a great night! Here’re some pics from the event and a few other red carpet pics for good measure.
My web series On the Market made it to the 2nd round of the Sundance New Voices Lab! To me, Sundance is the holy grail, and being one step closer to the Sundance fam is GOALS. See below my submission vid if you wanna get a little bit more about why I think this series is so cool.
In more Folk Hero & Funny Guy News, we went to Tribeca in April! The film played in competition to rave reviews. Such a fun time celebrating the film with everyone. Can I move to New York yet?!
I had the best time pitching my feature film at Napa Valley film fest this year. First of all, I love wine more than almost anything, so needless to say it was a memorable weekend. I pitched my film to an auditorium fulla folks and executives. Now, I just wait for Ed McMahon to drop off the big check. That’s how that works, right? And bonus points for Napa Valley FF because they also featured the film I was in last year Folk Hero and Funny Guy!
I shot a movie. Humble brag alert: it feels so damn good to do what you love.
Folk Hero & Funny Guy
