On Demand Session Link

It’s hard to categorize Janina Gavankar. You’ve watched her on The L-Word and Apple TV’s award-winning series The Morning Show. Janina is a fixture in the gaming community, co-hosting reality shows and voicing video games like Star Wars: Battlefront II. Now, she adds Director to her impressive roster.

Stucco, a slow burn horror short film produced by ZEISS, has been making its way around the festival circuit. An official selection at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, Stucco is a byproduct of Janina and her creative partner Russo Schelling’s twisted minds. Together, they made a film that is equal parts thought-provoking and spine-chilling.

In this talk, hear from the filmmakers on the making of Stucco. From the genesis of the project, to financing, to production and post workflow.
