A Song for Manzanar

I updated with photos from "A Song for Manzanar," a short film I designed earlier this year. It is based on the true story of two sisters, one in Japan, one in the United States during WWII. One sister is sent to Manzanar, one of the Japanese internment camps in California. We shot in Pasadena and on location at Manzanar. Have fun taking a look!

I'm in!!

Well folks, it's official! I'm a union member now!

I spent the last two and a half months working at Western Costume for their Halloween store, and as a result completed enough days to join the Motion Picture Costumers Union, Local 705! I've been waiting a long time to make this jump, and I'm very excited to begin working as a costumer on union projects! Thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point, I feel extremely lucky to have had people in my life who have been looking out for me. :)

In other news, word on the street is that Mojave Cherry Petals is getting very close to completion! Very much looking forward to seeing how it turned out!

Halloween at Western Costume!

Good news!

I started last week at Western Costume as one of this year's Halloween crew! We're pulling and putting everything together this month for their annual Halloween store that opens October 1st. Come on down anytime during the month of October and we'll be on hand to help you pick out a fabulous costume!

This means that as of November I'll be joining 705, the Motion Picture Costumers Union! Very excited to start working as a union costumer!

Wolves From Another Kingdom trailer

The preliminary trailer has been released for "Wolves From Another Kingdom," the post-apocalyptic AFI thesis I was working on in April/May! They're trying for another round of fundraising to do reshoots at the end of July. If you like what you see, click through to the vimeo page and there's information on how you can donate. Either way, here's the trailer, hope you enjoy!

Wolves From Another Kingdom

"Wolves From Another Kingdom" is almost wrapped! Just one day at Salton Sea this weekend and that's it. Here's a group shot they took of the wolf pack kids, complete with flaming dumpster in the background! Totally crazy stuff.. don't worry, the fire was built by the SFX technician, it's safe. :)

Mojave Cherry Petals on set snaps!

Here's a few more candid snaps of the kids on set of "Mojave Cherry Petals"! Aren't they cute? Very much looking forward to seeing the footage on this one..

Now that "Mojave Cherry Petals" has wrapped, I'm gearing up for dress rehearsals for the play "Big Love" at Occidental College as well as prepping for another AFI thesis film called "Wolves From Another Kingdom." Busy busy busy, but despite what I might say sometimes I think I prefer it that way. :)

Mojave Cherry Petals!

We finished the first five days of shooting on Mojave Cherry Petals, and tomorrow we travel to Manzanar to finish the shoot. It has been a great experience so far, and the kids were adorable! I'll post more pictures after we wrap! For now, here's a group shot of some of the kids!
