My last (for the foreseeable Corona future) documentary with Atlas Obscura is up. It’s on Ms. Showtime who is a motorcycle legend + Tina Turner impersonator + poet + activist + retired aircraft mechanic + great grandmother.
This is a very biased piece because I think she is the absolute coolest also there is a directors cut of this I need to finish with VHS stuff but for now watch this true icon here.
The project forum was announced for IFP! This is an article talking about it…Miracle Lake isn’t mentioned in that one as it is talking about literal legends but it is mentioned here!!
Princess Rita is still going strong and was in a virtual festival with NFMLA + Seed & Spark two weeks ago, and then was at Nevertheless Film Festival this weekend!! Really great Q&As, this is a photo from NFMLA..in the Nevertheless One I talked about how I love Connie Converse too much but that’s fine.
It feels wrong to be celebrating anything right now but this is probably the biggest thing to ever happen to me film wise and I’m so greatful and excited.
This was initially a totally different, very cool multi-part project but then after Corona came it had to go to self tape. Kind of funny because I’d always wanted to do something for Teen Vogue so of course a pandemic comes along…anyway I sent them photos of my diaries as visual references and afterwards I felt stupid and was positive they were going to think I was crazy BUT we actually based the visual feel of the series on that…it’s all hand painted panels and hand done alphabets and actual scanned collages, which I thought was super cute.
Here is a new little documentary for Atlas Obscura.
Many moons ago (wow) I had an internship at this very large really corporate music magazine and really hated it. For some reason I coped with this by watching Bombay Beach constantly. The film, and the Salton Sea itself, became this weird source of comfort/a mythical magical place to me, and I’m really glad we were able to shoot this before Coronavirus. I know there are bigger problems in the world (like people dying) but I find myself thinking alot about places like The Ski Inn…if they don’t survive this the world is going to be so boring.
3.5 hours of music to not leave the house to right here
Could it be…another…mini documentary….for my favorite website…in the world?
Had so much fun talking with Hannah for this interview! I sound a little unhinged but not terrible.
