Honored to have Step Into the Mattress (Dir. Erin Vassilopoulos) screen at the Museum of Modern Art last week as part of the Future of Film Is Female's annual program of shorts.
AGORAPHILIA, the new animated series created, directed, and animated by Maggie Brennan, written by Annelise Ogaard, and produced by me, is now available from Adult Swim Smalls! The first 2 episodes can be viewed on Adult Swim's YouTube channel, with the final episode airing Thurs, October 5th. Welcome to the Agoraverse.
Step Into the Mattress, written and directed by Erin Vassilopoulos and produced by me and Daryl Pittman, had its premiere at Palm Springs International ShortFest 2023 this summer. It also played at the newly formed New/Next Film Fest in Baltimore. Starring Eleanore Pienta, Eudora Peterson, Soojeong Son, Keith Poulson, and Constance Shulman.
Stay tuned for future screening announcements later this fall!
I designed the titles and credits for Girl Internet Show: A Kati Kelli Mixtape, which will have it's international premiere at Rotterdam January 2023! A lucky few caught the premiere earlier this year at BAM as part of Photographing the Ether: The Internet on Film, 1983—2022, and now the world will meet Kati.

Jane Schoenbrun's We're All Going to the World's Fair premiered in the NEXT section at Sundance last month! I very happily worked on this project as associate producer, and provided the film titles, credits, and some of the artwork in the film.
It has already been featured on "Best of" lists at IndieWire, The Ringer, The Hollywood Reporter, and many other publications, and named one of the Top 10 Best Films at Sundance in a critics poll.
I don't often write, but sometimes I do so I thought I would compile some of this year's pieces for Screen Slate and Exclaim! here.
