Q + A
What are you currently working on?
MARISA: This year was intense juggling three features - Love at First Spite finished shooting at the end of July and is officially in post-prod. NIX (which I produced on) releases in September, followed by Beyond the Neon in October.
I'm also diving back into some scripts I've written and starting some new ones! I'm never bored.
What's your favorite genre to work in?
I used to only want to do comedy, but personal tragedy sparked a need for emotional roles. I decided I want to try every genre - twice.
What are your favorite characters to play?
I like a messy, sarcastic character. They have the best secrets.
What would some dream jobs be?
I desperately want to play a cowgirl. I swear I'm not your typical "horse girl" but something about the idea lights me up inside.
I'm very interested in the future of media and new ways of storytelling (VR? Immersive choose-your-own?)
Thoughts for 2022?
My mantra this year is "Only More" - More water, more creating, more laughs, more adventure… lets do it!
