Grieving out loud.

Grieving out loud.

I always used Twitter for fun chats and a quick way to share info, but suddenly it also became a way to capture a life changing experience in a few phrases.

Flyway Film Fest 2013!

I’m headed to Flyway Film Fest in Pepin, Wisconsin, and couldn’t be a happier girl! Last year I was floored when I was given the Spirit of Flyway award. I was incoherent with tears. It had been a helluva year, combined with the fact that Flyway is star-studded with so many film heroes of mine, I couldn’t believe what was happening.

This year, I wanted to give back to the fest that I love. I approached the usual suspects, my amazing collaborators Kris and Lindy Boustedt, to make three quick, punchy promos for the fest. Together, we hashed out the story outlines (leaving plenty of room for improv) and shot everything in one day on the RED Scarlet – coming in behind schedule after a day spent laughing and playing! We couldn’t have done it without the talents of Jesse Lee Keeter (co-star), Nicholas Davis (DP), and Nathan Beykovsky (Grip, AC, AD, Everything). Tight, tiny team made of win. Probably the most fun day on set ever.

Here are the bumpers we created, for your amusement.

We love how they turned out! We poke fun at overdone themes but also ourselves (we’ve been there!). I’m eager to see the audience’s reaction.

Also, premiering at Flyway is the beautiful and moving short I was in this Summer, BEHIND ME by Rebecca Pugh.

Humbled, happy, grateful, excited!

Bring on the films and pie, I’m flying away to Wisconsin, and I hope to see you there.

10 Reasons Your Day Job Makes You a Better Actor

The other night, this came across my feed:

Actors are so much better at their craft when they work at a shitty diner, coffee shop, or desk job- than making a living just being actors

Woah. What?! Whoa!

Underdeveloped and Overexposed

The past couple of days, I was at the eye of a name-calling storm on Twitter, that stemmed from a real-life event. It went so far and got so ugly, that I wanted to write up a post warning others of my experience. Then, I was struck by an odd actor-brain thought.
