Abyss

Lurid visions and strange frequencies from another realm both plague and fascinate an introspective child through her adulthood.

Here is my short film Abyss, finally public online after several screenings in the US & Canada, and most recently winning Best Film at the 30Under30 Festival in NYC! I’ve been so humbled by all the warm responses to my film; the biggest reward of filmmaking is when someone tells me they’ve been moved by the story and somehow identify with this haunted girl.

This film was very personal and cathartic for me, coming from a very vulnerable state right after my mother Claire passed away. I couldn’t have made Abyss without all you beautiful people who follow my blog and support my art, and everyone who generously donated to my Kickstarter campaign. I love this film deeply and I hope you enjoy its odd, dark magic as well. Thank you!!!

Hi everybody!! Please take a moment to watch my new music video I directed for the immensely talented Paula Cole, starring my beautiful sister Blaise. This was a really fun project and so many awesome people were involved, like amazing artists Emily Bragg, Jane Mai, Evelyn Lieu, & Anna Chapman. Also keep your eyes peeled for the I’m Your Present accessories, in the scene shot at Shop at BananasI’ll be making gifs from this for a while hahaha.

Strong beautiful ladies, here is your new power song image I hope you like my video!

I’ll be releasing my newest video project really soon!!! For the past month I’ve been shooting & directing a music video for Grammy award-winning artist Paula Cole’s song “Strong Beautiful Woman”, from her new album, Raven. I also got the opportunity to work with my gorgeous little sister Blaise again, you might recognize her from my short film Moira & Me a few years ago image Anyway I hope these previews stir up some excitement. Strong Beautiful Woman is almost here!

I just wanna post it to my personal blog too & say thanks everybody for all the love! It’s been an awesome experience working with Paula and I’m so excited to finish up this fun, sweet video image

“Hi! You once mentioned something about seeing two moons in the sky, and you featured this in your thesis film. I was wondering if you could elaborate on that and what the cause is? Seeing some trippy stuff myself lately and not sure how to interpret it. Sorry if this question seems confusing, my memory of reading what you wrote is pretty vague. :)”

hi! no it’s ok i don’t mind. i love questions about my work, it’s really exciting for me when people are interested!!! image 

so- i never saw two moons in the sky per se, but some of the imagery, particularly blood~water, the bat creature, and seeing myself across the room, were inspired by some of my sleep paralysis experiences. it happens to me fairly often and so that particularly imagery gave me a starting point that eventually led to writing Abyss. i’ve made other projects that were also inspired by sleep paralysis and nightmares but some of them (like Moira & Me) are just weird ideas i had image

“what made you wanna become a filmmaker”

aw thank you for asking ♡ well i was always interested in art, growing up forever—elementary school through high school (i was an art major at laguardia high school in nyc), and i tried so many mediums and loved them all… i loved illustration, sculpting, costuming, photography, as well as anything technical or computer-related, like i loved figuring out how to write and code games with RPGMaker 2000… (ᅌᴗᅌ* )

but when i went to RISD and i had to choose a major, i was scared getting stuck in one medium. i realized film encompasses so many different artistic fields, and at the core of my interest in the arts, i was always designing characters and imagining worlds because ultimately i wanted to tell stories. originally i declared film thinking of myself as an SFX/costuming kind of girl, and i was very intimidated by cameras and editing. but once i got behind a camera and started working with actors i really fell in love image imagining stories and making them real… it was the biggest epiphany in my life and it all went up from there. i think film is so big it’s something you can never fully master, and so it will always keep you busy, curious and hungry for more. thank you again for that nice question ♡


The festival announced the programs so I know which night I’m screening! It’s a whole horror/scifi/midnight shorts program from 9pm~11pm, the lineup looks AWESOME and mine is screening first! I’d be soooo excited if any of you guys near Toronto would want to come image I don’t know what the general admission prices will be but I’m sure you can find more info soon on Female Eye’s website and you can message me too if you’re and I’ll try to keep everybody updated. I’ll be in Canada that whole week before my screening so if you can’t make it I’ll still be in the area if anyone wants to find me and say hi!!! image
