La Dame Peinte was a 48 hour short film project created by myself and Faye Butler and submitted to Nikon short film festival.

Set in black and white, with an original melancholy score, written by John Joseph Wiater, and a jaunty, monotone monologue, narrated by Faye Butler, the piece is a comedy about a fickle bride who, after leaving her husband at the alter, contemplates all the things she could do with her life. 

This project was an exploration of filmmaking for both Butler and I; an opportunity to have a go at all the roles needed for making a short and an opportunity to play with a 60s aesthetic.
