I'M A BUSY BEE
Here's a few projects that I'm currently working on.
I-57: moms try too hard sometimes
I-57 (named after the highway that sweeps you into the deep Chicagoland suburbs) is about a trans boy named Dominic and his supportive mother Cheryl. The only problem is that Cheryl's too supportive — like the inviting-a-stranger-that-is-also-transgender-from-Craigslist-to-dinner kind of supportive.
ACROSS, BEYOND, AND OVER: A WEIRD DOC ABOUT DATING AND GENDER
Across, Beyond, and Over is a semi-documentary, combining personal interviews, home movies, and dramatizations, that explores how people critically change in relationships told through the story of two trans men who’d used to call each other “girlfriends” reuniting after ten years. Inspired by Marlon Riggs’ Tongues Untied, Across, Beyond, and Over explores intersectional questions of gender, sexuality, race, and love.
handles: who needs irl when you have instagram
In this dark comedy obsessed with grief and social media, Alex Bass, one half of the social media famous @Twinstagram account, looks for a soul-altering change after her latest post forces her perfect twin, Maddie, to kick her off the account. Alex’s hope to branch off onto her own handle is short-lived when she realizes that the perfect handle —@AlexBass — is owned by a dead man. However, determined to switch her handle and life, she travels to a small town in Upper Michigan seeking out the widow of the handle-owner with the goal of unlocking his account. Through this absurd journey, Alex must reconcile with her own grief, her perfect sister, the person she’s crafted herself to be, and truth itself.
