TUESDAY at Tarfest

September 24, 2009

Another festival for TUESDAY IN COPACABANA!

My super short, wickedly weird, beautifully photographed (on 35mm! by Andre Lascaris! cut by Sarah Broshar! production designed by Mia Cho! starring Laura Breckenridge! shot on el Segundo’s beach to doubling as Copacabana in the ’40s!), cinematic adaptation of the Carlos Hugo Christensen poem will play in Tarfest on Saturday September 26 from 1-3 pm at the Korean Cultural Center (5505 Wilshire Blvd., LA, 90036).  Admission is free!

Laura Breckenridge on GG TONIGHT

March 2, 2009

I’ve been known to tune in to Gossip Girl… and DVR it… and to fervently plan social events inpsired by the broadcast of new episodes.  I admit it.  

I’m a fan.  

Despite all of its shortcomings, I eat up its fashion delights, easy-on-the-eyes actors and every word that comes out of Blair’s mouth.  

But I’m also a fan of Laura Breckenridge.  

Laura and I on set of "Tuesday in Copacabana."Laura and I collaborated in 2007 when she starred in Tuesday in Copacabana, a short I directed and wrote.  She had previously starred on the WB’s Related.   Laura was a dream to work with, and I can’t wait to have the chance again.  

In the meantime, it’s a blast to watch her as guest star as Rachel Carr, a young, idealistic English teacher who goes to war with Blair and to bed with Dan.  Leave it to GG to make afterschool activities sexy again.

Catch Laura in action tonight at 8PM (pst) when the CW replays her first day at school or watch her online in “The Age of Dissonance,” “Carnal Knowledge” and “You’ve Got Yale.”
