How To Not Wash Dishes Like An Asshole

So El NiƱo didn't quite deliver.  The drought is still real and we are barreling toward a very dry dystopian future.  Yes, California will go full Mad Max in a generation or two, and Charlize Theron won't be around to save us.  Here is a short I directed (written by and starring Diana Gitelman) to remind us that the little things help.

(Photo cred: Not me.  George Miller and his Academy Award sweeping team of genius designers.)

My 1st Emmy Nom

With the Emmys coming up this weekend, it suddenly occurred to me that I forgot to mention I was nominated!!!

Okay, thats a little misleading.  It was for a local, Los Angeles Area Emmy, for best Public Service Announcement.  (You may remember the PSA for the Santa Monica Museum of Art that I directed from earlier this year.) Anyway, we didn't win, but as they say, it was an honor just to be nominated.

Here are some photos from the award ceremony last July.

Take A (Closer) Look!

A lot of people don't know that there's a free museum in Santa Monica!  So I was happy to bring attention to it, by directing this PSA for The Santa Monica Museum of Art.  SMMoA is located in Bergamot Station, right next to the new Metro stop, and open to the public six days a week.  I was also pretty psyched that this rainbow-pixel-scape by Robert Swain was the exhibition we were able to craft the whole spot around. Take a look!

Tide Pods and Time Capsules

Every once in a while, a commercial I'm in will play on TV all year long, and it's really nice when that happens.  But then sometimes, the other actress in the commercial is someone I've been making theater with for the past 15 years, and you know what?  That is even nicer than all those steady residual checks.

Well, okay.  It's also nice.  In a different way.

Check out the hilarious Alex Hoover (and I) in this commercial, and see all those years on the stage filtered down into one 30 second joke to sell detergent.

MILFs (Mothers I'd Like to Film)

I made some comedy web series for Nick Mom. (I hinted at this earlier in the year, but since they're up, subtlety is no longer needed.)  Here is the first episode of Your Childless Friend, an advice show for parents, by a woman who is not a mom and probably shouldn't ever pursue it.  And here is the first episode of Healthy Parents Healthy Kids, a DIY home-cooking show by the most awkward couple in America.  I loved working with all these actors, and teaming up again with Cami Delavigne, writer extraordinaire.  Enjoy!  There are at least two more episodes of each show coming soon...
