What happens when a woman who loves her job up in the air, is stuck alone on the ground?
Grounded is dedicated to those flight crew who are still working; risking their lives up in the air.
As well as being an actor and producer, I work part time as a flight attendant. Inspired by my fellow flight attendants, I wanted to tell a story about how I imagined my collegues who truly love their jobs serving others, might be spending their time at home. This film was shot on my iPhoneX, with no professional equipment or crew which to my surprise was a very liberating experience.
Thank you Audpop, Women in Film, and IMDbPro for giving us an opportunity to create and giving me the space to discover how much fun I could have in executing a "One Woman Show."
And if you are reading this and you are an essential worker of any kind, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate you!
