CAST & CREW
Natasha Straley - Director, Producer

Natasha Straley is an award winning director of narrative films. She began as an actor before accepting roles on the other side of the camera in 2010. She has since worked on countless independent film productions sifting through every department until directing naturally rose to the surface.

Focusing on both comedic and dramatic narrative films with dark undertones, her work typically explores the uncomfortable nuances of human nature and relationships. She is attracted to screenplays which push boundaries and dive into the grey area between right and wrong.

She has spent the last ten years working between New York City and San Antonio, Texas. Her films are frequently invited to screen at festivals across the country.

In 2018 she received the San Antonio Film Commission’s Local Filmmaker Grant. In addition, the prestigious San Antonio Woman Magazine published a profile on her work.

​Lara Britton - Assistant Director, Writer, Producer

A musician from the start, Lara Britton is a classically trained pianist who (naturally) turned to a career in opera to fulfill her performing needs. In Austin, performing means acting on film, so she started doing that, too, with hopes of becoming the next Cynthia Rothrock.

Life got in the way so that never happened, but she has spent the last ten years working in various positions both in front of and behind the camera. A glutton for punishment, she keeps writing and directing with hopes of making a feature. In the meantime, to deal with the angst that all this art gives her she does Kung Fu.
