“Best Comedy Short”-Hollywood Reel Film Festival

End Title Song-“On My Feet Again”(Janet Robin)

In this irreverent comedic short, while outside awaiting their grand entrance to his memorial party, three actresses mourn their beloved acting coach. They share the pitfalls of aging in Hollywood, a pint of vodka and debate the pros and cons of auditioning to play a dead body.

Use Me Up (Original Score by Janet Robin)

How about a short film shot from the feminine perspective? How about an all female crew? 

After studying feminist film criticism, we came up with the idea of consciously shooting a film from the Female Gaze, as opposed to the Male Gaze that dominates film making in Hollywood and around the world. Written by a woman, directed by a woman, and shot with an all-female crew, this movie will truly be the work of women's hands and minds. 

Inspired by Bill Withers' song "Use Me," this short film looks at the difficulties an inter-racial dom/sub couple have winning support from their friends and family.
