Yup, it's been a minute!
What have I been up to? Lots, but mostly finishing up Utopia! A 15mins surreal drama about a young woman conflicted about her identity who wakes up from a coma in Uganda. Fun, I know! It's been an incredible journey so far and I can't wait to share the finished short with you. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
In the meanwhile, a bit of good news :)
A Day in the Life of Who is going to the Sag-Aftra Showcase in New York on March 28th!! And, yes, I'm flying in for the event. It'll be a quick visit, but I'm excited to join my fellow filmmakers on the Q & A panel for the five films selected for this showcase, to talk film-making and answer a few questions! If you're in town and can join us, please do!
