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.
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:
I am forever thankful for the opportunities that were presented over the course of this semester and took advantage of as many as I could. I had to travel quite a bit and put a considerable amount of mileage on my car traveling back and forth between Manhattan and Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ (where I reside during the academic year). My residence is in Northern NJ, relatively close to New York City. My family … grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins are all in New York. I luck out in a sense where there was always a local place to crash when I head into the city, but I also had classes and campus activities, so it was never long before I had to drive back to school.
Not-so-fun Facts: The Verrazano Bridge is $19. There is an EZ-Pass toll discount, however it only applies to NY pass holders and the deep(er) discount is only for Staten Island Residents. The Port Authority tolls (Goethals Bridge, Lincoln or Holland Tunnel) are $12.50 with the discount. The NJ Turnpike Tolls vary anywhere between $5 and $11. A typical trip from Rowan University (exit 3) to Lower Manhattan (exit 14C) can run about $11. I took the train to Astoria, $17 round-trip on New Jersey Transit plus another $5.50 on the MetroCard for the MTA.
