Natasha & Sam (the short)

​February 9th-11th, 2018 we shot what I expected to be some "practice scenes" from my feature script,

Natasha & Sam (see the post below).  However, such an amazing group of collaborators came together; from

actors who gave weeks of their time to explore with me, to a dream crew that signed on solely from 

interest in vision of the project and my promises that it would be a fun, sane, creative and respectful

environment.  Working in the beliefs of remembering "the obstacles are the road" and trying to do less and do

it better, we ended up with what will actually be a full on short, proof-of-concept film, based on my feature.

What was created collaboratively went beyond my best hopes for this incarnation.  We are now beginning

post production and I look forward to sharing this short, when it is done, in a few months.

More to come, but for now go to my Facebook page for some images from the shoot.

Rehearsal/Sketch to shoot this Feb, 2018

Winter 2018

This February in Montreal, as part of my research, and as well for my thesis, I’ll be doing a production I’m calling Rehearsal/Sketch. Primarily filmed as a documentary, this will witness myself as director and local actors developing and rehearsing key scenes from Natasha & Sam (my dramatic feature in development) and then showcasing the final product of those scenes.   All the while we’ll be exploring new modes of being on set and collaboration, which are less hierarchical than the standard Industry practice and in service of the female gaze.  This rehearsal work will primarily be comprised of improvisations used for rewrites.  Additionally, I’ll be working with actors who won’t be the ones I hire in the UK this summer.  From working in Montreal with different actors, who can be any ethnicity or height, etc. I’ll hone in on both the characters, the story and my directing practice.

Munich - summer 2017

Co-teaching & Crowdfunding talk

In June I had the honor to co-teach a summer workshop with my friend, Sanne Kurz, at the HFF in Munich where she is on the faculty.  The workshop was for her cinematography class, as they stepped into the shoes of a director and made a short film on 35mm.

On July 3rd, Sanne and I presented on Crowdfunding at the HFF and hosted by Münchner Filmwerkstatt e.V. for a local audience of filmmakers.  Sanne and I shared what we have gleaned from the 5 crowdfunding projects we have been involved with or initiated, and methods and actions that lead to success in this endeavor.
