Director Biography – Paula Rhodes
Paula fled St. Louis via the pageant circuit that all 5’ of her had entered as a joke and parlayed the crown she won into multiple internships. She spent stints in London and NYC before settling in LA and quickly began hyphenating with short films and web series, initially as a way to create work for herself and her friends as actors. She fell in love with the additional super-storytelling-powers work behind the camera grants one and won multiple awards along the way. This is her first feature and the first time she’s used quite so MANY hyphens simultaneously (directing,-story by-wardrobe-locations-catering-makeup-camera dept-sound-producing-acting-annnnnnd becoming a mom).
