The audience response for the d-monster short film was overwhelming. People loved it! The showcase far exceeded my wildest dreams. Who gets to sit and hear a standing room only crowd laugh at every one of their jokes? I sat in the dark theater waiting for my film to come on, hoping people would connect to my story and my comedy. It felt so wonderful to see it happen. I’ve spent years working on my comedy, from stand-up to improv, putting my work up to get one little chuckle. Last night was like winning on a slot machine in Vegas. It just kept on coming. Making people laugh is the greatest gift of all!
All the films in the line-up were well written and directed. I was so honored to be in such great company. It was an inspiring evening with Lesli Linka Glatter (MAD MEN) talking about her experience in the AFI Directing Workshop for women and how it allowed her to have a career as a director.
I am so grateful to be a part of this program and so excited to move forward with new projects, it’s been an amazing year of growth.
Thank you everyone for your support this year, I could not have done it without you!
