Biography After their long absence, I'm happy to see Filmaka back again! In the past I have used Filmaka to creatively challenge myself to work very quickly within creative limitations. I like to use only the time and resources I have on hand to craft my Filmaka shorts, which means sometimes making a film in a day! I am a mother of two young boys as well as filmmaker and teacher. I currently live in Berkeley, California. I have an MFA degree in cinema and a BS degree in Earth Systems.
