An Intern For Megan

- Short Film -

Synopsis

Inspired by the Emmy-nominated web series An Emmy For Megan, Alyssa pitches herself to intern for Megan Amram on the set of season 2 of An Emmy For Megan.

Involvement

I wrote, directed, executive produced, and made my acting debut in this short. I gathered a crew of around 10 friends and fellow film students, and we filmed this in one day during our finals week. Upon its release, Megan Amram invited me to help on An Emmy For Megan and I got to be on set for production in March 2019 and even make a cameo in the finale episode. Season two was nominated for an Emmy but (sadly) did not win this year.

Afterimages

- Senior Thesis Film -

Synopsis

In a world where your Five most impactful memories print as polaroids from your mouth upon death, Sam and her mom struggle to reconnect after her grandfather dies.

Involvement

I served as 1st Assistant Director, which meant I scheduled the shooting of this 12-page script over 6 full shoot days. I was the point of contact for cast and crew and ensured the successful completion of principle photography during our allotted shoot days. I sent out call sheets, completed daily production reports, and also directed background actors whenever necessary.

Mateo

Synopsis

Mateo has been treated like a child all his life, but he must face his family and confront his own immaturity when he learns that his girlfriend is pregnant.

Involvement

As producer and sound designer on this project, I secured locations and permits, posted casting calls and scheduled auditions, and made sure every detail was planned out before going into our shoot days. I also oversaw production sound recording and sound designed in ProTools during the postproduction process.

Specials

- Short Film -

Synopsis

Specials is an absurdist comedic take on the way mothers feel the need to respond to everything waiters say, especially when reciting the daily specials. 

Involvement

I volunteered to help in any capacity as soon as I read this hilarious script, and the writer/director so kindly offered me the role of 1st Assistant Director. My role was mainly administrative as I created the call sheet and made sure our shoot kept moving as scheduled since we only had one day at our location.
