My Bio
I only know one sentence of French. I read it on a size 8 girl's bathing suit hanging in a Wal-mart in 1989 in Stockbridge, Georgia, USA. Repeating it will definitely get me arrested in French speaking areas. Except for that whole having been shot, and writing a novel, and knitting and being on MTV back in the day thing I'm completely boring. According to my dentist I drink too much coffee. Why's he complaining? It's job security for him.
What are some things you're doing to help make this film?
I'm telling everyone I know to join and using good old fashioned southern guilt, philosophical debate training, the possibility of tax credits, the giddiness of publicity, home made breads and cookies.. just whatever works to get people to donate.
Why are you supporting The 1 Second Film project?
I help manage a Domestic Violence Shelter. I believe that FGM should be outlawed globally. I am disgusted that even today women and girls worldwide are considered second class citizens. I am incensed that to trace our geneology we trace the names of our fathers when true geneology is found in the mitochondrial DNA - transferred on the X chromosome. And I really want to support my ditzy movie-producer cousin Angela so some day she can film the movie she wrote on her dream set in Czechoslovakia.

Wordtinker's Perfect Moment

If you had to choose a 'perfect moment' from your life to make into a one-second film, what would it be?

He picked me up by the throat and slammed me into the wall, just inches above the stereo speaker, leaning his full body weight into my throat, strangling me. Without thinking, I pulled my knees up tight to my chest, planted both booted feet firmly against his chest and kicked him away. His 5' 9", 225 pound, body-building, championship black belt self flew backward across his living room and landed with a satisfying "THUMP" on his back in the floor as he wheezed, "Where'd you learn THAT?"
