PREMIERE: Finding St. Isabel

Yesterday, I attended the premiere of Finding St. Isabel. The theater was packed and the audience definitely seemed to enjoy the hard work that dozens of talented crew members put into making this film happen. A few lazy actors contributed as well…

Here’s one, on the right:

Forgive the terrible lighting. We are both actually very cute.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also pictured on the left is director Nikki Rodriguez, who sacrificed a lot of sleep to bring Suzanne Rivecca’s short story “Look, Ma, I’m Breathing” to vibrant life.

I couldn’t be happier to have been a part of this project. Now, Nikki and her crew are submitting the film to festivals around the country. So excited to see how Finding St. Isabel makes its way through the world!

Props to the Props Department!

I’m working on a film right now called Finding St. Isabel. My character is an author who has a love-hate relationship with not only her lapsed Catholic faith, but also the book she wrote about her experience.

Overnight bookstore shoot totally worth my distorted sense of time and date today. I am very excited to see this film come together!

WORK IN PROGRESS: Finding St. Isabel

We’re halfway way there! I’ve been lucky enough to be hard at work the past two weekends, shooting a great short film called Finding St. Isabel.

Emoting so hard…

I play Isabel, a lapsed Catholic woman who lied about seeing the Virgin Mary when she was a child. Her lie meets a series of coincidences that make her a national news sensation. She finally admits her lie and goes on to write a book about her experience. Now a best-selling author, Isabel finds herself the object of unwanted attention from a potential landlord who understands her far better than she is willing to admit…

I am so excited to see and share this finished film. Look out for more news in April 2016!
