My first nomination!

Woot! All smiles over here after receiving a "Best Actress in a Feature" nomination for the 2018 Austin Revolution Film Fest. Not gonna lie, this boost came at just the right moment and has left me grateful and motivated! My "sister" and "brother" in the film, played by my beloveds Christina Shea-Wright and Ben Kaufman also got nominations!! LOVE feeling that our on screen sibling dynamic felt authentic <3! Our Badass and dedicated director Christina Raia also received a nomination for best Director! You cant see it, but I'm dancing as I type up this post, classic dorky Annie style!

About a Donkey teaser

They are slamming through post on About a Donkey! Catch me given some glares and a nice waddle run in this sneak peak ;)

BROKE teaser

Yep, those are my legs! First screening of the Broke Pilot is tonight in NYC!!! 25 mins of comic, snappy, silly single lady and her feisty friends NYC cray.  Wish I was there to celebrate...!! Loved being a part of this team so so so much.  And really do love my wild totally unfiltered smart-as-fuck character Mel! Fingers crossed we get to film the whole (of which all the other episodes are already perfecty written!) season this year!!!

About a donkey- wrapping!

And just like that we are already wrapping! Crazy how quickly time flies when you are doing something you so enjoy. We had the Donkeys on set this last weekend! They were hilarious and yes, stubborn AF. I loved this film family, both on screen and behind the scenes. So much kindness and focus and support on all fronts. So grateful for the opportunity to be Annie, my heart is just gushy full. 

Broke promo shoot!

Getting wayyyyy too weird today with my screen besties and mega babes Anya Krawcheck and Joanna Carpenter-  making a promo for the pilot of BROKE! Can't wait to share the chaos...

Filming about a Donkey

In this film I get to be layered in family- my own small family with my handsome husband Paul and our baby on the way. I am also the baby of my family of origin, the Owens, all of whome I worry over far too much.  It's actually pretty delightful playing a pregnant lady, fun to alter my physicality on all fronts and to think about the hormones rushing through me. Annie somehow manages to straddle being the character both closest and furthest in mindset to my own person I have had the chance to play. Christina Raia is slaying as our keenly focused, utterly competent director, and the team she has built around her really function much like a dream family - with everyone pitching in to make sure things get done regardless of their "title" on set. Each day is a pleasure, can't get enough!

Directing Make a Wish for HTBs

Hat Trick Bitches are at it again! Such a fun time directing the chaos that will be this episode! This crew is like a well oiled machine, so respectful and totally game to play- a director's dream! Pictures already give away too much, you will have to tune in this summer for the story behind ;)

Rhubarb Short Film

What a dream these days of filming were. Kasey Stamats is doing something so unique with the style of this short, I'll post again about it when it hits the festivals as it will totes be worth watchin'! Got to create a complex sad and secret backstory for my character and the man who arrives with her crush, which was so satisfying to play out!

Directing The Talk for HTBs

"The Talk" is the first episode I am directing for the Hat Trick Bitches. We got to shoot in a dreamy brownstone and the team was on point all day. HTB is made up of Madeline Chilese, Marlowe Holden, and Nastasia Green -3 of the funniest, most organized and easy to work with babes I've encountered. They have a full season of 30 minute sketch episodes coming out this summer, I'll post again when they are released.

Filming First Scene!

Spent the weekend with these crazies filming the first 10 pages of the feature ABOUT A DONKEY which will be shooting in entirety in March. Hilarious experience already, and so much kindness and heart on set. More please!

feature film! About a donkey

Crazy excited to be playing Annie as a part of this "ensemble comedy about growing up, growing old and about a donkey." We shoot the first scene in January and the entire feature in March! 

Pet Me Episode 2!

These ladies! This crew. This is the other part of my sample for pilot! Don't want to say too much yet since I am still working out style kinks but Ive been dreaming about this baby for well over a year and its great to finally be making something that I can show my concept with!

Pet Me! Episode 1

Pre Pro like mad with these best babes! Alison Irvine, my second hand killa producer and Albo Greene, DP with vision and equal animal obsession :)
