“To be awarded to one or more Rooftop Films alumni filmmakers to help them to complete a short film that communicates the power of hope, collaboration and togetherness to make positive change. ” -Rooftop Films

Wow. Welp.  I just got awarded a grant from the wonderful Rooftop Films, thank you! I will be making a short doc about my mother, Susan Frost and what she does for a living. She’s an ocularist, she makes artificial eyes, meaning she hand sculpts, paints and molds the eye for her patients. It’s intimate. It’s emotional and she literally changes the patients life. I cannot wait to make this film and am thankful my mom is down to make it as well! Thank goodness for artists as parents! YAY!

Thank you Sidewalk Film Festival for awarding our new short FUNERAL best animated short film!

Thank you to my amazing team, post and pre..thank you, and of course, thank you animation.

Until next time.

Yup! You heard it! The famous COOKIES will screen at the famous Rooftop Films this summer July 7th a part of the Dark Toons screening. This is possibly one of my favorite NYC film festivals in that it is independent, non-profit and it screens on rooftops all summer! They are also incredibly supportive of filmmakers and I am very thankful for that. Thank you Rooftop Films! Thanks to my crew,  Sarah Miskoff, Fritz Myers and Jonathan Seligson. See you soon!

I am super proud to announce that I am a judge in the short animated block at the SXSW Film Festival 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been screening my films in the experimental, narrative and animated shorts categories at SXSW since my 2009 undergrad RISD thesis film MEATWAFFLE, so I am totally up for this challenge!! TO AUSTIN I GO!!Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 9.12.09 PM

Judge I am!

And so I attended another AMAZING film festival, the Rincon Intl. Film Festival.

Puerto Rico is freaking amaazing. The natives are super friendly, the food is to die for and the scenery is also to die for. I died a lot there. In the best way.

The festival staff are incredible supportive and they really take care of the filmmaker that attend. I felt like a Puerto Rican Goddess. The filmmakers were super sweet,and the film program was very well programmed with themed nights from Fright Night to Romance Night (my film, I Love You So Much was in that night, which I found to be hilarious because it is a bizarre take on ‘romance’)…all very good. The films always played outside with a breathtaking view of either the ocean with palm trees or some tropical background. I actually felt like I was in a movie watching movies. It was a surreal amazing experience everything from showing my film to meeting amazing programmers and filmmakers and even natives. If you are a film enthusiast I would serious suggest making  a trip to Puerto Rico to attend this amazing little festival that I hear is growing significantly every year!

OH! Also. My film, I Love You So Much won BEST FICTION SHORT FILM!!! HUZAAAH!

On to more fests and making films!!!!

WOO!
