Food Producer (Creative Producer) Adapting for the Stage

Signed on to produce the feature-length documentary, Adapting for the Stage. Worked with my producing partner to apply for grants, create a marketing and fundraising strategy, and develop low-cost filming strategies. In addition, I helped to guide the director to make strong creative decisions. Due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, principle photography has been delayed a year. I am still focused on this project, but it has taken a backseat to more pressing endeavors.

Director (Writer.) Still Bear

Film (Short) — Columbia College Chicago, Student Project Details
11/18 – 12/18

My first semester in Columbia, film students were split into groups of five, and tasked with directing a five minute short film. I pitched the idea of "Still Bear" to my group, wrote the script, and took on directorial responsibilities. Each student took charge over one or two departments, and worked with all of them to ensure that we were all working together to achieve a singular vision. I organized a casting call alongside my producer, and worked with our actress to create a credible and emotionally affecting performance.
