Kira Sipler and I have collaborated on three short film projects over the last two years, so I’ve had the good fortune to see her work in a variety of roles. In the spring of 2017 I had my first on-set experience serving as a PA to Kira’s 2nd AD on The Son, The Father. We followed this up with a role reversal that fall; Kira was still 2nd AD, but I took on the role of Executive Producer for The Boarding House. Last year I served as Lead Writer for a 48-Hour Film Festival team, and Kira was the director for that short (The Man That Time Forgot). In each case, I was impressed by Kira’s powerful work ethic and calm on-set demeanor. When everyone else is freaking out, Kira is the one who’s keeping it all together. I can’t wait to work together again!
