In her second year she directed a short film, Helpless, that went on to be officially selected in 12 festivals winning awards in 7 of them including Best Short Film in the Women in Film and Television category at the Nashville Film Festival. She was chosen for Variety's inaugural list of "110 Student's to Watch" in the annual Variety Entertainment Education Report (April 2015). Christene has most recently completed a nine-month internship at Bad Robot Productions where she assisted on additional photography on Star Wars Episode Episode 7, 10 Cloverfield Ln., as a PA on a Profile video for Children’s Defense Fund Beat the Odds Scholarship, and the Oscar 2016 skit.
