Sometimes I make short films. Since I began working in tech, I have realized that I like to tinker, work with a team and figure things out. That comes in handy when you make films.
In early 2016, I recruited a great team of talented actresses and began production on a web series called Lady Parts. The goal of the series is to take on the subject matter of relationships between women: social situations, friendships, competition, belonging, alienation and more. Characters engage in these topics with a feminist approach, all in a comedic and satirical tone.
The first season premiered in May/June of 2017 and was shown at a public event as part of a SEMAC capstone project. Season two is available now.
Lady Parts was nominated for Best Comedy at the 2017 Minnesota WebFest. Read more press:
In the spring of 2018, I participated in Film Score Fest, an annual festival coordinated by MNKino. The festival pairs a filmmaker with a composer to collaborate on work together. Teams create an original piece according to the festival theme, and the top short films are selected for a screening with a live orchestra accompanying the work. The 2018 theme was “Unreal” and I was paired with Jake Downing.
In this experimental, dialogue-free short, a lion tamer tries to keep an unusual animal in line.
