Jane Adams (HBO's Hung, The Anniversary Party and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) stars as an actress living in Malibu who faces harsh realities of the industry as her age exempts her from more and more acting opportunities. Amidst this career and life crisis enters the actress's niece, played by Sophia Takal (Green, Gabi on the Roof in July, and V/H/S), who arrives for a weekend stay and ushers in a complicated prism of emotional insecurities. Can the actress confront her fears, navigate complicated relationships, and figure out how to navigate mid-life in Hollywood? (Factory 25)

"I've made a really conscious effort to shoot on whatever cameras were the common popular camera at the time[...] Recently, that look has been the [Canon Mark] 5D or 7D look, which is what I used to shoot 'All the Light in the Sky'..."
