The short film I'm working on now is called Strawberry Shake (upcoming 2018).  

I don't want to say too much about it yet, but it's about a divorced mom and her two young kids, and takes place in a single day in Brooklyn.

I'm thrilled and grateful to have received a New York State Council on the Arts Individual Artist Grant to make Strawberry Shake- a huge thanks going out to them for supporting me.

I'm also thrilled to have an amazing team for this film: producers Allison Rose Carter, Jon Read, and Kyle Eaton.

 
 

 

The last short film I completed is called The Itching and it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016.  The film was made with collaborator Adam Davies over a period of 7 years.

The Itching is a drama/comedy/psycholgoical horror film about a shy wolf that tries to befriend a group of hip, party-loving bunnies but finds her body is in revolt.  Though the wolf wants to connect with the exotic strangers, anxiety overwhelms her, and she descends into obsessive itching.  

Why did it take 7 years to make you might wonder?  That would be too long a story for this website, but I'm shocked and delighted we finished.

During the the time we made The Itching, I wrote/directed another short movie which is called Pow Pow Pow (2012).  Pow Pow Pow is about a 39-year-old artist named Danny who launches himself as BOBO, a children's birthday party clown, despite having no experience.  Armed with a joke book and a duffle bag full of props, Danny takes a gig in the Rhode Island suburbs, where he must prove himself to both children and adults.

Here is a Vimeo excerpt from the film.
