I represented Strut at this year’s Soho Film Festival with the show creator Misha Calvert and actress Christina Toth. I produced the pilot for this female driven comedy. It has now screened at over 15 film festivals and won numerous awards including Best Screenwriting and Best Comedy at the Hollyweb Film Festival, Best Pilot at the New Zealand Web Festival and Best Web Series at the NYC Indie Film Festival, Hollywood Comedy Shorts and Terminus Film Festivals. Strut was also a part of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival’s Creators Market. Needless to say, I am a proud producer.
I had the privilege of attending Telluride’s Mountainfilm Festival this year. Not only is this festival located in a beautiful setting, but it also hosts an incredible lineup of important social and environmental documentaries from around the world.
This was one of my all time favorite film festival experiences. Although I saw some incredibly heartbreaking documentaries, there were some very important discussions taking place during this festival. I return to New York filled with fresh inspiration and conviction that film can change the world.
I have two projects in the Tribeca Film Festival this year.
I produced the pilot for Misha Calvert's Strut which will be a part of this year's Tribeca Film Festival's N.O.W. Creator's Lab. Strut is a female driven comedy, and Misha is a powerhouse who's currently developing 9 different projects. She's definitely someone to watch!
I also have a role in Kent Jones' feature film Diane. Diane is in the U.S. Narrative Competition at Tribeca this year. It features a phenomenal cast including Mary Kay Place, Estelle Parsons, Andrea Martin, Jake Lacy and me!
