Director Biography - L.M. Harter

L.M. grew up in the Depression playing "kick the can", walking down Main Street to the corner store called Tom and Penny's for candy cigarettes, caught lightening bugs and came in when the porch light came on. It was the 1980s but all the above is true. Welcome to living in Appalachia.

L.M. got a Bachelor's in Communications and a Masters in Screenwritng from the University of Texas at Austin where she finally settled down with two dogs, two cats (all obnoxious and needy) and runs her production company with her very patient fiancé. Currently she teaches a production course and is very happy to not have a chicken coop to clean.

Director Statement

Directing green screen was a challenge I was not expecting to be so difficult. Thank God I had my creative partner, Hunter Koerner, to heavily lean on.

Originally shot for the first ABC's of Death this little short was shot in Chicago with actress Josephine McAdam joining me from Austin after learning to slack line. Her leading man, Mike Mazzocca learned to throw knives (only one missed and broke a lamp) and I tried to keep up with the technology around me. This film could not have gone one baby step forward without the amazing Chicago crew and cast. It has screened all over the world and might just be the little film that could.
