Psyche Ascending

Director - Drama

Psyche Ascending, as described by the writer Michael Zeilik, is a modern parable learned from ancient Greek Myths. God lays out the future. Psyche must grow in confidence to reach her own potential in this short drama of love that matures and fulfils.

This was a rarity as I didn’t write it but tried to direct it in the spirit the writer intended. A test of working off someone else’s screenplay but still creating a directorial vision. The film did three other things. I decided to cast as many of the Greek gods as possible to be played by Native American actors. I flirted with the model of students working with professionals, and it is a love story!
