News & Press
To my delighted surprise, I was one of 40 women picked as honorees at L.A. Biz's inaugural Women of Influence Awards. I was impressed and intimidated and inspired by this mighty group that included doctors, lead counsel for the Port of LA, Vice Presidents at Disney and ESPN, and the "Martha Stewart of Marijuana." Wonderful luncheon and even better company. Thank you to everyone involved!
Pro bono video I did for Glamour Project: a friend's wonderful charity that provides makeovers and loving fun to women in homeless shelters. Filmed a few years ago with an old camera. Finally edited this month! Where does the time go?
I wrote an article for agnes films: a community of women filmmakers. This valuable resource and space for female filmmakers is the brainchild of Alexandra Hidalgo and Denah Johnston. I am incredibly grateful for their tireless efforts in advancing the work of women.
KPCC, the NPR affiliate station of LA, aired a segment about one of my documentaries on Take Two. Myself and one of the subjects were interviewed by the host A Martinez and reporter Leo Duran.
I had the pleasure of helping out on these great videos. Local Voices, a media campaign that helps voters in battleground states tell their own stories, has won numerous awards for best presidential campaign ads.
My most recent micro-documentary! In making it, I learned that working with former gang members is easier than working with 7th grade students. But reliving-middle-school-stress aside, documenting this remarkable and innovative program with a crackerjack team of arts administrators was wholly and deeply rewarding.
Although I hope none of you ever have to relive middle school, it was a joy following these students from 6th into 8th grade for Center Theatre Group.
After 15 years, 50 videos, a feature and a short, my first documentary reel.
I provided the videography on this excellent video made by The Broad Stage.
I'm the first featured documentary filmmaker in agnesfilms.com, a site for female filmmakers.
Here is my music video for Noam Weinstein's song "We're All Going There". Video made from friend found footage contributions.
SSBD reviewed in Spring 2010 issue of Films for the Feminist Classroom.
A comparison of my film Same Same, but Different to Transformers.
The California Arts Council asked me to teach workshops at their Contractors' Conference in San Diego (Jan 11), LA (Jan 19), and the Bay area (Feb 4) on video documentation for Teaching Artists.
So excited to meet artists all over California!
