ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
 - Our heroine, a working film director, decides to make a statement by wearing a dress to set.  It doesn't go as planned.  Still, she refuses to stifle her more feminine side and manages to direct just fine.

Originally conceived as an entry for the American Cinematheque's Focus on Female Directors trailer contest, this short one-minute animated film was the winning entry that screened at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood in January of 2011.
