"Rape Joke" (Lady Parts, EP 01)
Following the success of my blog Lady Parts (www.someladyparts.com), I wrote, directed, and starred in a comedic followup webseries of the same name. Lady Parts: The Webseries consists of 10 darkly comedic shorts about sexism in entertainment as experienced by early career actresses, a favorite of which was Episode 1, "Rape Joke".
Some of my responsibilities on this project included writing episode scripts, casting and hiring crew, sourcing music and SFX, scouting and coordinating with location managers, managing budgets and equipment rentals, running a crowdfunding and PR campaign for the series release, submitting to festivals... More or less all the things, while also starring in and directing the series. NBD.
Lady Parts was an official selection of the Middle Coast Film Festival, Adirondack Film Festival, Broken Knuckle Film Festival, and #TOFF. It has been screened by NYC Women Filmmakers and Stareable in New York City. To date, it's been viewed 40K+ times, and has been written up by BUST Magazine, Bitch Media, the Daily Dot, and others.
