I just spent a great weekend on Long Island shooting the dramatic short, "A House Doesn't Make a Home". It depicts an estranged couple's interactions through the lens of their young son. Despite the subject matter, I had a lot of fun working on this - the cast and crew were great and often hilarious (particularly my on-screen estranged husband, Robert Lincoln). Here are a few pictures!
It was a very cold shoot, but a fun one. The crew was amazing to work with, and the other actors (and parent!), were absolutely lovely. Here are some pictures!
Very excited to announce that I was just cast in a Columbia MFA film titled "The Things I Love" shooting next week! I'll be playing the middle-aged version of Ally - a woman grieving the loss of her mother. The script is beautiful, and the writer/director was wonderful to work with in the audition room - needless to say, I'm looking forward to this one.
Very excited to share that I'll be reading an excerpt from a one-woman show in a thesis showcase for graduating NYU Tisch playwriting students.
Synopsis: Filomena attempts to quit her activist work while grappling with the impact of trauma and isolation two years after her wife was killed in an anti-LGBTQ hate crime.
Very excited to share my new headshots by the amazing Jessica Osber! She understood what I was looking for immediately and provided expert direction to get there. I feel like these shots more accurately reflect me and what I bring to a character. Check them out below and on my Photos page!
I had a great time last weekend filming, "The Fortune Teller" with Julia Tutko-Balena and Jill Safer (producers and director on "Fahrenheit"). Julia was playing quadruple duty as actor, writer, director, and producer, and Jill was a producer and the director of photography. I played Clara, a soccer mom with a dark secret. Here are some BTS photos!
Excited to share that I'll be filming a short called, "Fortune Teller" with Julia Tutko-Belena and Jill Major on November 15-17! Julia is creating a new production company called Friendly Filmmaker, and this will be one of the first projects. I previously worked with Julia and Jill on "Fahrenheit" - Julia as a producer/actor and Jill as director/producer on that project. Details to come!
Before I knew it, my "Oedipus" experience was over. The last weekend of shows was packed, and the audience was engaged and active. It was a great end to a complex, challenging, and rewarding show. That is the kind of work I like to do - layered, emotionally invested characters, heightened language, and impossibly high stakes.
