Movie Marathon!

I very (VERY) quickly whipped together this silly animation for the Northwest Film Center’s 12-hour Movie Marathon. It a fun fundraising event for those in love film, and there’s more to it than watching movies at the Bagdad–trivia, raffles, surprise guests and performers!

Movers & Makers

I gave you a sneak peak at the TWOMP screening last month (also a kind of sneak peak in itself for that film), but coming to you again–and this time not on a sheet!–I give you RACHEL, RYAN, JAMIE & KATIE.

Join me and some other incredible makers at the Northwest Film Center on January 26th, 7 PM. It’s part of the Movers & Makers screening of shorts, and if we’re buddies I can probably make it free!

Now all I need to do is finish some sound work on it this weekend!

TWOMP Kickstarter

I told you I’d be back! As we  make the transition from pre-production to production with The World of Missing Persons, we need some more funds to get all the way there. The Regional Arts & Culture council will get us part way, but here is where you come in! Below is our kickstarter video, but the get more information and donate to the campaign click here! Visit us on Facebook too!

The World of Missing Persons

I am producing a short film for writer/director Travis Ezell. We are currently in preproduction, gearing up for an August shoot! I’m really excited to be on board with this! Hence every sentence ending with an exclamation point! Not only is Travis extremely talented and experienced, but we also have DP, Jon Beanlands on board to help create some beautiful images!

This project is also partially funded by the Regional Arts & Culture Council (so we’re not the only ones who believe in us)! I’m sure I will be updating soon with our kickstarter campaign as well.

Until then, we would love your support by checking out the website for The World of Missing Persons and the Facebook page (don’t forget to “like” us) to learn  more.



Recently we wrapped on writer/director Michael Roberson’s short film Rossum.

I worked on set as AC, my husband Michael as the still photographer (his lovely image is seen below and if you follow the Rossum link above you’ll find more). I am really excited to see this whole project come together at the premiere in October! Stay tuned, I’ll have some behind the scenes footage. Until then check out the FB page. Oh, did I mention Michael and I had the opportunity to act in the commercial which appears in this film. Really terrific stuff!



I have here production stills I did for a fellow creative (writer/director/good friend type), Miranda Lehman. The film is called Wrong, and is actually moving into post-production soon. I have to appreciate her taste for absolutely drinkable light design. I will update when more information comes out about the film.



More of my stills can be found here.

Wrong also has a Facebook fan page.


These are a few stills from the set of “Positive” a short film by writer/director/editor/good friend Liz Lewis. Stay tuned for future collaborations with this talented lady.




For the rest of the stills I shot for this production please check out the following flickr links:

Landscapes is a super 8 short portraying what Gil Dennis referred to as the “lovely lulls” of a relationship. It received a judges award at the Northwest Film & Video Festival (soon to be renamed the Northwest Filmmakers Festival), but more importantly was the first thing I made that complete strangers thanked me for. That was terrific. My husband, Michael, was a huge help in making this what it is.
