I’ve been a fan of Lynn Shelton’s work for YEARS. Between Hump Day and Your Sister’s Sister—I can’t get enough of her ability to capture those awkward relationships we all have with people we love. Humans have complicated intentions behind their actions, and she knows exactly how to show it on screen to make it…

The Double

Screening Numba Two: The Babadook

This. Movie. Scared. The. Shit. Outta. Me. I don’t usually watch horror films—mostly because I’m a gigantic chicken. Also because I feel like the current state of mainstream horror cinema is just torture porn. I hate that. This film was in no way in that category. One Line Review: “A thoughtfully creepy and engaging horror…

This year’s first volunteer screening was the documentary “The Overnighters”. One line review: “This film captures the dark…

Adobe Video: Palms Casino Resort

This was a really fun video to be a part of. I actually produced two videos this trip. One is part of an internal video series I’m producing for Adobe, and the other was this customer story about Palms Casino Resort. This trip to Las Vegas was my first trip as a full-fledged producer, and…
