The dancers and I hope to see you there!
how utterly romantic!!
The Yellow Room projected onto a screen on a barge floating on the river running through Padua. REMARKABLE honor to be included in the wonderful River Film Festival. Grazie! The international film community has embraced our little film and given me such incredible support and hope!
Directing my first short film has been an incredible journey. Collaboration has been key - finding the folks who are as passionate about dance as I am was pretty effortless. Their creativity and positivity really bouyed me as I navigated unknown territory. A big thank you to co-producer/DP/dance fanatic Jim Doyle, editor Arielle Zakowski, composer Ali Helnwein , cameraman Lachlan Turczan and of course the impeccable dancers Jessica Gadzinki and Junji Dezaki!
this festival has everything going for it, i so wish i could be there! if you find yourself in oxford in mid-may, check it out...
excited to have our film in 4 festivals...thrilled for composer Ali Helnwein's nomination for best score @ Kerry Film Festival and honored to receive an award of merit for Female Filmakers from Best Shorts Competition!
How PERFECT is it that my first short film as a director, The Yellow Room, will have it's World Premiere at the Kerry Film Festival in Co. Kerry Ireland!!!!! The following month it will be screening at the Olympia Film Festival and hopefully more to come!
Happily I had some incredible collaborators on this project including Jim Doyle - my talented DP and co-producer, dancers Jessica Gadzinski and Junji Dezaki, composer Ali Helnwein, and editor Arielle Zakowski.

Power & Devotion, Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music has announced it's Opening Night concert on August 5. The opening will feature the thrilling world premiere of a symphonic ballet titled RIFT. A Festival commission, the work is a collaboration between myself and composer Anna Clyne. I recently visited Santa Cruz to meet with staff and explore staging possibilities at the Civic Auditorium.
Anna and I have been filming during our creative process. We’re sharing our first short video about RIFT, which gives background on the piece, and describes our progress to date. It's a very exciting project, and we are happy to share it with you now!
I'm so very excited to begin collaborating with my friend composer Anna Clyne on upcoming projects! click links below to read NY Times article that addresses her process and our collaboration!
