Marian Call and The Doubleclicks

Tonight at Dragon’s Lair in Austin I got to see The Doubleclicks and Marian Call live.

These incredibly talented ladies are fan-fucking-tastic.  I’m not exaggerating.  The huge crown laughed all throughout the show.  The wit and hilarious lyrics they offer up, along with genuine charm and comedic timing, had us all cracking up.  And singing along!  They encouraged it, and the crowd of 50 or more had a great time.

On top of that, they music itself is great.  Fun lyrics, great instrumentation (ukelele paired with cello?  CHECK), and GORGEOUS vocals.

Check them out.  I’m serious.

Loyola Marymount University

I’ve been asked to speak at the Loyola Marymount University “Focus: Behind the Scenes with Women Filmmakers,” in March!  I’m so thrilled and excited to be a part of this.  The event is organized by the Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television Women’s Society.

The Society’s mission is:

  • To build a strong community of women within the School of Film and Television
  • To inspire participation and ambition within its members and to create opportunities to act on that ambition
  • To learn from those who have already made their way through networking and events with professional filmmakers

I am very excited to share my experiences with young women filmmakers.

Wonder Con!
