This video was made as part of the 2017 Toronto 48 hr film project where teams have 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film based on a specific genre. I co-wrote and star in these 7 minutes of silliness about a brand new dating app – TIMEDR.
The elements we had to work into the film were:

Genre: Time Travel
Character: Quinn Diaz, Stand up Comedian
Prop: Beach Towel
Line: Do you even know how to use that?

Our team won Best Graphics, Best Sound Effects, Best Special Effects, and Audience Favourite at the Toronto 48 hr film project. Timedr is an Official Selection of the Austin Short Comedy Film Festival (2018) where I was nominated for Best Actress, and is an Official Selection of the Chicago REEL Shorts Film Festival. Before you ask, I don’t know them, and there was no fee to be nominated. It was 100% merit based and totally made my day. External validation for the win!
