“Beat Around the Bush” is an official selection at the 10th Annual Broad Humour Film Festival

After the HollyShorts, and Atlanta Underground screenings in August, BEAT AROUND THE BUSH is heading back to Los Angeles once again and will be screening in Venice Beach as part of the 10th Broad Humour Film Festival. 

The Broad Humour Film Festival runs August 31st-September 3rd, 2017 and is a place where funny broads hang out with funny broads. Our lead actress Brenda Matthews will definitely be in attendance, and  it’s possible I will be as well!

The Broad Humour Film Festival was named one of the 5 “coolest” women’s film festivals in the world by Moviemaker Magazine in 2016. I look forward to being a part of such a fantastic organization. www.broadhumor.com

Playing the part of a shadow…director

As of Tuesday this week, I am shadowing Allan Arkush, Executive Producer, and director (Heroes, Crossing Jordan, Ally McBealDawson’s CreekCaddy Shack II) of the Lifetime Network dramatic TV series, The Witches of East End, which stars Julia Ormond (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Mad Men, Legends of the Fall) and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (Step UpTake the Lead).

I can’t disclose anything about what I’ve actually been doing as the episode I’m shadowing is the FINALE! (Not that I could say anything for any other episode…) But just know that it is happening, I’m learning a lot, and I see directing television in my near future. I will be shadowing Allan until the end of August and I am stoked to see it all come together.

Allan is a wealth of information. I can’t even express my gratitude to him for the offer to have me shadow him. It is true: I have horseshoes.
