Aviva, Emily, Yasmina are four twenty-something lesbians from very different backgrounds. Navigating life and love in Brooklyn is never a walk in the park. But when they meet through an iPhone app ‘SameSame’, the girls realize they have much more in common than they originally thought…

 

Now in post production on season 1, this web series began as a pilot in 2013. Winning awards and developing a growing fanbase online, we crowdfunded to finish the series in 2016 and shot eleven more episodes as spring hit New York. First called ‘Scissr’, we’re now calling it SAME SAME. Along with Creator Lauren Augarten, Stephanie Begg, and Sumer Cejak, I directed several episodes.

   

 The project was selected to attend Big Vision Empty Wallet‘s  “Diversity Kickstarter Lab” to learn about distribution nowadays and meet with potential distributors.

It’s got some press around it now, with write-ups in The Huffington Post and Curve Magazine, and won it’s category at the New Media Film Festival Los Angeles 2014.
