I just returned from an amazing trip to attend the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, WI. This was my fourth time attending Flyway and it's always a wonderful experience but this time it was extra special because we won an award! Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard on this film - we did it, we won Best Narrative Short Film!
Last week, during a one-day shoot in Woodland Park, NJ, we shot a new horror short film called Body Image. This is a different kind of film for me: very short runtime (approx. 2 minutes), one location, one actor, and no dialogue.
We had a great cast and crew! We worked with a skeleton crew for this small shoot and everyone worked so well as a team to cover the many roles needed.
A big thank you to each of our cast and crew for their dedication, hard work, and artistry -- and a special shout-out to our actor Jocelyn Vammer and FX makeup artist Ashley Thomas for working with me to create Abby, our single character in Body Image.
We've created two new behind-the-scenes videos for The End of Mara: One about casting the film and the other about the cinematic look-and-feel of The End of Mara as well as the complete Resurrection Trilogy, including, Vivienne Again and Deal Travis In.
You can check them both out below and thank you to our Associate Producer Nick Coleman for his great work on these videos!
I'm excited to announce that the World Premiere for 'The End of Mara' will take place at the New York International Short Film Festival. Tickets go on sale soon!
