TEHT Screening Update – COVID-19 Postponement

It is with great regret, through likely no surprise, that due to the novel CoronaVirus pandemic, we had to adjust plans for the screening of To Each, Her Throne, originally scheduled for April 25, 2020 in New York City.

While the screening is no longer continuing as planned, we are actively working to reschedule. The tri-state area is among the hardest hit by COVID-19 and we’d like to urge you to stay home (if possible) and stay safe. We will be in touch when new dates are confirmed.

Daughters of Solanas Selected for Two Additional Film Festivals

Daughters of Solanas continues to take off!  The dramedy short was recently accepted into two additional film festivals.  What great news to kick off Women’s History Month!?!?  It is an official selection of the 2020 Uptown Women’s Festival of New York which runs May 14-17th 2020 at New Stage Theater.  The film was also recently selected for the 2020 Women’s Comedy Film Festival in Atlanta.

Directed by Angele Cooper of Alpha Female Films, this dramedy short was created as part of the New York iteration of the Women’s Weekend Film Challenge.  It premiered in April 2019 at the Museum of Moving Image in New York.  I had the pleasure of working this entire female cast and crew as a BTS / Unit Photographer.  I also managed socials and established digital presence for the film.  Read more about the film by clicking here => #DaughtersofSolanas or visiting the IMDB page.

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.

Freelance Spotlight: BTS from Eclectic New Yorker Project [Camera Assistant & Lighting Crew]

Summer 2019 has been remarkably busy (in a good way).  While the blog posts have certainly been more sporadic, I promise it’s for good reason.  I’d like to share some details on a recently completed freelance project in Astoria, NY.  In late July, I had the pleasure of working with photographer Regan Wood.  She is working on a super exciting project about eclectic New Yorkers and fascinating spaces.   I assisted on-set with several functions including lighting.  This connection was made by Jill Lotenberg, another lady of the lens that I had the pleasure of working with.  I’ll be sure to share more details about the project as it comes into fruition. Here are a couple behind the scenes snaps from the space:

“To Each, Her Throne” – Web Docuseries Official Trailer [VIEW]

Check out the official trailer for “To Each, Her Throne.” 

To Each, Her Throne is a five-episode web docuseries bringing together women from different ages, backgrounds, sexualities, religions, races and ethnic groups.  This is a female-centric project boasting an all-female cast and crew.  Thus far, support for the project has been overwhelmingly positive, partially securing funding through a successful IndieGogo campaign with over 40 backers.  Under the artistic direction of Danielle Privat, the cast came together for judgement-free discourse on the female experience, with the goal of breaking societal mandates.

Be on the lookout for the dates of our upcoming screening in NYC and project release.

Freelance Spotlight: BTS from Film Premiere – Heroic Episodes & The Shades [Desktop Publishing, Behind-the-Scenes Photo / Video]

June 2019 was an action-packed month!  One of the most memorable events I had the pleasure of being involved with this month was the screening of Heroic Episodes and The Shades.  These short films were both directed by Lisa Regina, the founder of A Write to Heal, a 501(c)(3) organization.  The cast consisted of military veterans, and the screening took place the weekend after Memorial Day. 

Below are some photos I took at the event: 

In the month leading up to the event I assisted with grassroots marketing efforts and used both Canva and desktop publishing software to design a 16-page program / theater booklet with cast bios, sponsors, advertisers and more. I also handled BTS / event photography and edited a photo-story and video collage for socials. The premiere took place on June 4, 2019 at the historic Broadway Theater in Pitman, NJ.

I received a referral for this opportunity from Professor Rachael Shapiro, a Writing Arts, Research and Technology professor at Rowan University who taught my New Media Practicum / senior seminar course. Lisa Regina is a professional actress and coach by-trade.  Her partnership with Bridging the Gap helps soldiers with communication skills and confidence building for reintegration into society after deployment.  To learn more about Lisa Regina, these film projects, or her acting classes visit her website.

Freelance Spotlight: BTS from Alliance Latino Youth Leadership Conference at Fairleigh Dickinson University – Inspimind Project, Dir of Photography

In recent weeks, I worked as the Director of Photography (DP) for the Fifth Annual Alliance Latino Youth Leadership Conference.  I supervised the interns, camera and light crew for the one-day, multi-cam shoot (currently in post).   This event was co-sponsored by Inspimind and took place at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey.  This year’s theme was “Rompiendo Barreras” (breaking through).  The conference was open to high school students of Latino heritage and consisted of workshops about success, overcoming life hurdles, financing college and getting scholarships.

Last year, I worked at Inspimind as an intern in Film Production and Multimedia.  In that capacity, I assisted with pre-production, onsite production, and post-production (editing and debrief meetings).  Other responsibilities included recording and editing footage, photography, assisting with the planning & scheduling of production shoots, and collaborating with the Content Development team.  I connected with Inspimind, not only as an employee, but on a personal level because I value their mission and witnessed firsthand all the amazing work they do in the community as an educational services non-profit.  I started out as an intern, but when I received the call to come back this year for a paid freelance opportunity supervising their new 2019 interns at the Alliance Latino Youth Leadership Conference, I jumped at the chance.  It was an amazing event!  Learn more about Inspimind.
