 PERFECT CHAOS - Episode 10 

written and directed by Melissa Mars

Totally #stayathome approved & #socialdistancing respected.

I was invited by Anthony Sharpe & Set Apart Pictures to participate to the movie chain Perfect Chaos.

I wrote, directed, edited, and starred in this short film during the lockdown.

I’d like to highlight the fact that I was able to stage myself with my scene partner, respecting the social distancing way beyond the 6 feet requirement, we stayed 10,353 miles apart! From NY to Melbourne… 

The new way of filmmaking post-covid?…

I hope you enjoy watching it as much I did making it.
