Films – Shorts

Fruit Cake This movie was shot entirely on a cell phone and is just 6 minutes long. In it, I portray a woman whose fears are literally eating her alive! (Is she slowly losing her mind, or are some VERY strange things really happening to her?!) Pay close attention to our usage of the four elements: water, earth, fire and finally air. There’s a cool drone shot at the end too. It received four award noms for Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design and Best Storyline. Shown at the Orlando International Film Fest. Written and directed by Violetta Anna Licari.


This movie is about a clown who doesn’t know he’s a clown. Even though it is a serio-comedy, the cast could not acknowledge the outfit and makeup as being anything out of the ordinary. This way, the film made it’s point about being different in today’s world. It won top honors for art direction, and for my performance as the boys’ mother.

Off The Rails

In this movie, I play the mother of yet another troubled teen.  The film is about a boy with Asperger Syndrome and took second place in the Hofstra Film Festival.  The very talented Dennis Holland again plays my husband.  Directed by Alessandro Girolami.


This film was aired at the New York Film Academy. Its creator took a song and envisioned an entire movie based upon it.  I had a cameo role as a bartender who serves a character based on the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  The song was “Smooth Criminal”.  Directed by Josh Wein.

In “All Hail Caesar” I play a small town police chief, Rebecca Chadwick, who’s battling the onslaught of hard drugs in her town.  The trail leads her to a powerful drug lord nicknamed Caesar, who always manages to stay one step ahead of the law.  Could he have a man on the inside?  Written and directed by Tyrell McIntyre and produced by the Borough of Manhattan Community College, where the Sundance Film Festival is held every year.

Television – The Movie

In this picture, I’m an ignored, tortured wife of a man who is obsessed with television. Toward the end of the movie, he is sucked into the set. I take matters into my own hands and pick-up the remote.  Directed by Joseph Dibble.
