About Me & This Site

Hello, my name is Lucy, I am a filmmaker living in Los Angeles.

I created this site to document my filmmaking journey. My goal is to inspire others, particularly women, to tell your stories and get your films made. If I can do it, so can you.
I am working on two more shorts before I embark on making my feature film. I am lucky to have friends who have made their first and in some cases, second features. I will interview them and post the interviews here so we can both learn from their experiences.

Feel free to email me with any questions or suggestions.
