CREW CALL: Assistant Directed a Feature

I just got back from Los Angeles, where I worked on a lovely feature called Abby and Tabby: Alone in the Desert. This film is so exciting, on so many levels.

First, the talented cast worked off of an outlined script, improvising a lot of their lines. The results are exceptional and of-the-moment.

Second, this film was largely conceived, performed, and crewed up by a female team. Jessica Erin Martin took on multiple roles, as writer, director, producer, and actor (Tabby). Co-star Ashley Lenz (Abby) produced and acted in the film.

My jaw still remains a little bit on the floor at what these women have accomplished and I was very happy to be a part of it — along with many other excellent crew members — and to see a Joshua tree for the first time.
