Film

I fell in love with making movies somewhere between brushing my teeth and having lunch.
And when I say I love it, I mean I love all of it. Every job on set. I've written, directed, produced, and edited. I have run the generator (though this still puts the fear of god in me), tried production design, and tinkered with lighting. My strengths are in writing, directing, and producing.

I've won awards for my work as a writer, director, and producer.

Storytelling has become such a buzz word now that I struggle to say this but at the time I returned to grad school to study filmmaking it was because storytelling was missing from my web design life.
Moving Postcards
Moving Postcards started as a gift of an old family car and ended as a photography project. The car needed to get from Maryland to California. So, I called Rachael and we found overlapping time off between projects and took the slow road across the country with a DSLR and a vague idea of what we’d find. We arrived in California just three weeks after departing with nearly a TB of footage from over 22 locations. Go!

Moving Postcards was produced, directed, and edited by Jennifer Arzt. This was a successfully funded this project via Kickstarter.
Cake
Cake is a short children's film. I'm so proud to let you know that it was honored with a Directors Guild of America award. In less than ten minutes you can see what happens when best friends, who happen to be orphans, try to make themselves unadoptable.

Cake was written and directed by Jennifer Arzt. It was honored with a Directors Guild of America award, First Place at the Palm Beach Film Festival, and proudly screened in numerous festival around the US.
