The Chain of Love Letter

At the time you participated in Joanie 4 Jackie did you consider yourself a filmmaker? What was your relationship to making movies?
I started directing while going to school for theatre acting, environmental studies, and gender/women’s studies. I decided to take an intro to filmmaking class and then sent in the first film I directed to J4J.

What did you think/feel about the Joanie 4 Jackie at the time? And now, in retrospect?
At the time, I liked that it seemed non-commercial and about community and sharing art. I still do. Looking back on it, it’s pretty awesome that I had the opportunity to participate in one of Miranda July’s projects (of course that probably means Miranda July saw my first attempt at filmmaking, which today is incredibly embarrassing).

What do you do now – professionally and otherwise? Are you still involved in filmmaking?
I still work in theatre and film, primarily as a theatre actor, and occasionally in other areas, such as directing and writing.
