"We just wrapped a dramatic short, Intervention that we shot out west. Linda Palmer is the director (same director as Sienna's Choice). She is exceptional and truly a blessing to work with. The lead producer, the talented Julia Silverman, and I are lead actresses. The film looks at both addiction (touches upon opioid abuse) and mental health. That role was intense and deep as an actor but I am grateful to bring this to life. It should hit the film festival circuit within the next few months. " ~Janel Tanna
