Last year I got to help make a horror short with my close friends! The idea stemmed at one of our writing groups and took off from there. We’re all huge fans of David Lynch & anything strange and unusual, so of course the movie is too. Jesse Livingston is the mastermind behind the Blue Room and really put everything together so well.
The experience of working with my friends and bringing the whole idea into reality was such an incredibly rewarding experience. My role was as the production manager and as the wife of Chen, so I got to be on both sides of the camera.
Personally, my biggest challenge was finding a location. So many places charge an arm & a leg…& a kidney too which is difficult for a small budget. We did end up finding the perfect location…and then the perfect actors, and everything just fell into place from there.
I’m really excited to be able to share this with people. Trying new things is probably one of my favorite parts about being alive, and this is one of those new things I’m so happy I tried. I’ll never be a Hollywood actress or film maker, but I can say I’ve made a short film and will always be so proud of all the work my friends and I put into it. Twin Peaks brought us all together. I’m very thankful it did.
