The Indie Movie a narrative drama indie feature film, which includes feminist themes, social-justice and environmental justice themes, along with LGBTQ content – but which also includes AMAZING footage of Sea-Life : “OctaviaThe Octopus™” graced us with her cephalopod strutting during principle photography as did “LegsTheCrab™” and beautiful sea-birds featured in the movie.

I was “born on the water” and ever since, I’ve been ‘called’ and connected to the ocean, as my spirit-source.
The Cali Lili Indies™ pWMiM™ feMt0™studi0 is my hand-built, sustainable, upcycled, green ‘SurFLoft™H20’ which includes a ‘living floor’partly featured in the movie
It’s where my team + i create one-of-a-kind Signature, ‘Single-Origin’ collectible ‘pieces’ which I have come to call : ‘ c.lilis™ AquaCultureZ™’
My minimalist style, which began during my early teenage work in theater ( I was skipped several grades and began college at the age of 13) – has now become a significant trademark of my studio. My aesthetic, along with my deep love for the ocean and mother earth, for wild-life such as wolves, and for sea-life especially cetaceans, cephalopods, and ocean crabs, made it a clear choice – that I would create the concept of ‘SustainableFilmSetZ™’ where all my sets were culled from up-cycled objects which would then become up-cycled again after the production ( like the construction of my studio loft) and at-least 90% of my wardrobe was made from up-cycled garments and/or hand-made from scratch – destined for up-cycling ‘MadeFromReturnedTo™’

My HandMade ArtisanalMovies™ + ArtisanalMusic™ projects are the result of ‘lived experience’ and we call them ‘HandMade2MakeADifference™” because the studio and projects were born from my response to ‘MeToo’ experiences as well as – my desire to create a project with an all female production crew ( we may have been the first ? but certainly among the very first ) along with my dedication to telling Social Justice Stories + Environmental Justice Stories, unencumbered by ‘big money’ / corporate studio over-lords.
