UPDATE: The shoot went extremely well. A huge thanks to everyone at Lonelyleap for running such a fantastic set and for pulling together a crew that was able to stay positive and energized through the night. It was a pleasure working with Jason and everyone else involved, and I can't wait to see how the film comes out!
I just received word that I've been cast in a new short film by director Jason Harper at Lonelyleap. The project is a Levi's-sponsored short film that will premiere at the AFI Film Festival in LA this November. The film follows an ambitious but despairing high school teacher. Fresh out of Yale she has already lost her nerve teaching high school algebra. Ready to quit for good, she encounters an unlikely savant at a local Chinese dive. I am playing the female lead. I'm really excited to be on board with this awesome team and exciting project.
