SELKIE

SHORT FILM

WRITER/DIRECTOR

A wayward selkie (a seal that can turn itself into a human) has followed a school of herring up the Delaware river when her seal skin is captured by a man from the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. 

 

A story about the people that wash in and out of lives. 

It has screened at the Philadelphia Film Society, Trenton Film Festival, SFC Women's Film Fest (winner: best professional narrative), Mystic Film Festival, Garden State Film Festival, Women's Film Festival, Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival, Media Film Festival, and Drunken Film Fest in Bradford, UK. 

"SELKIE is a beautifully shot and well-acted narrative metaphor for the soul-crushing effect of being involved in an unhealthy relationship... What also makes this short film remarkable is that it relays the emotional beats of the story without a word of dialogue spoken - except for the fisherman’s opening monologue.

ANOTHER TIME

SHORT FILM

WRITER/DIRECTOR

Harriet is a 27 year old woman dealing with typical problems of indecisiveness, daily panic attacks, the sense of being lost, and a total fear of commitment. Only Harriet has more than twenty-something angst to blame for her troubles- she honestly believes she is a victim of botched time travel and belongs in 1783.
