Press:

"Depression Mom channels Lawrence Welk nostalgia in 'Once In California' video." -WXPN

"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.
