Collaboration Corner: Break Point (Actress) and Final Beat (First AC)

Over the past month, I’ve had the opportunity to work on several exciting film projects.  In addition to my personal ventures, I was on the crew for a few others, including student projects for fellow MFA candidates.  There are two projects I’d like to share details on.  First, because I am super proud of the outcome, and secondly, since both films were directed by women.  In recent weeks, there was quite the uproar about the industry’s lack of gender parity and female filmmakers being snubbed by the Oscars and Golden Globes.  Here are two projects from upcoming women in film to be on the lookout for:

The first project, Final Beat was directed by Elon Riley.  I was the first assistant camera (1st AC / focus puller) for this film.

The second project Break Point was written and directed by Melissa Witherspoon.  I was cast as the actress in this film; I’m usually behind the camera but I was able to flex some acting chops here.

I’ll share more details about release as information becomes available.
