CHARACTER

Episode 2: “Suzy Hotrod” is currently in production! More info here.

 

Episode 1

Character – Episode 1 is the story of Fancy Feast, a self-described fat burlesque performer, sex educator, and winner of the Miss Coney Island 2016 pageant.

The “Character” project is my personal attempt to document a rapidly vanishing breed: The New York City Eccentric.

As rents continue to rise and real-life communities give way to social media, it’s becoming more and more difficult to make your way in this town as a bona fide free spirit. My goal is to find the people who still exist on the fringe of New York—creatively or otherwise—and record their stories.

“Character” recently screened at Anthology Film Archives in New York City, at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco, and at the Coney Island Film Festival. The movie also got some love from The Huffington Post, among others. Read all about it on the Press page.
