Director Statement

I first met Jeanne Taylor on a feature film project in Wales, England. We became great friends and soon realized her unique talents both as an actor and also a writer. We soon started on pilots and short projects together in Los Angeles, before collaborating on a webseries idea about a 'ventriloquist doll who solves murders' ... what could possibly be more fun?! So 'let's be about it' Mrs Carmody and Mrs Jellineck have now taken center stage. With a small cast and crew, Elizabeth enjoys working with all talent involved and how much hard work, enthusiasm and fun everyone has contributed.

Congratulations to our cast and crew! Mrs. Carmody & Mrs. Jellineck: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow are very proud to have FIVE wins along with FOUR Official Selections. We look forward to our upcoming festivals and competitions!
