Catching up a little
It’s nearly fall, and I haven’t posted in quite a while. Here we go! April was a big month for me; my husband and I were in Japan having our long-awaited Shinto marriage ceremony. We’d wanted to have one back in 2010, but the Tsunami and earthquake intercepted. And so, during spring break we jetted there,…
Here is the love
Here are some stills from “A Song of Consolation,” a tender USC short I recently had the pleasure of working on. The story is about an unlikely connection between two loners who share a love of music. You can view the entire film here. Enjoy! xDalit
Bizarre & Beautiful
I’m thrilled it’s 2016. I remember as a child wondering what it would be like to live in the two thousands….it was hard to even conceptualize at the time, and sometimes it still is. Well, we made it. We’re here. And in this bizarre beautiful world, there are countless chances to wake up. To begin…
Two more local festivals for “Waiting for You” and a new preproduction photo to share…. xDalit
the pleasure and the pain
Just filmed an emotional scene in a fierce indie feature. Am sworn to secrecy at the moment but will share the deets as soon as I can. For now, here’s a post-filming selfie from the day. May all beings be free and happy. xDalit

Greetings! I hope you are enjoying the summer. Here in Los Angeles the weather has been uncharacteristically humid and even rainy at moments. This is a good thing for the soil and it makes for soothing naps as well! The Topanga Film Festival is coming up at the end of this month and it’s a…
A special relationship
The next few days mark the entry of “Waiting for You” into the North American film festival circuit (it was part of the Cannes shorts corner just recently). It’s an unusual film for a number of reasons. One thing I’ve been thinking about recently is its central relationship: father and daughter. Especially with Father’s Day…
Yesterday was the screening of “Midnight Dinner,” a dark stylish solo piece that observes a woman of extreme lonliness and dubious courage. I had such a blast filming it. Here are some photos from the experience!
speckled heat against the wind
It’s a big week, shooting a dark and stylish solo narrative film that explores the themes of extreme lonliness and surrender (more on that later!), as well as the “Game of Scones” screening in few days. But I am especially happy to announce the entrance of “Waiting for You” into the world. It was a…
the fabric of nothing and everything
Spring is approaching. Really, it is! Reflecting on the year biz-wise so far, I have three projects in various states of completion: one is in post-production, one will be screened next month, and one is in pre-production. As excited as I am to be a part of them all, these in betweeny moments can feel…
just a little taste
Here’s a still from a short film I acted in this summer. It’s just a little taste.
