Sit Down Comedy


Year of production: 2013

Running Time: 11:09 minutes


This is a project from a film class film for Stephen Cone at The Acting Studio Chicago. It was a wonderful class where we learned to devise film through creating characters and discovering story. My character is quiet in this film, but I feel that her story comes across in the moments she crosses through the scene.

Cold Kiss: Beso Frio


This promotional video for Cold Kiss features actors from our School at Steppenwolf class of 2010 in a Viewpoints session. One of our classmates, Yuenen Pardo is working to create a feature length film in which scenes will use this method of movement to further the story.


It was filmed in Downtown Chicago. Our audience were startled bystanders. It was an incredible summer evening in 2013.
