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!
