Five WIFVNE members were part of the New England cast and crew for the shoot of the psychological horror film Penny, written and directed by WIFVNE Board Member Rachel S. Thomas-Medwid.
The three-day shoot took place in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, in September with Lynn Weissman as Director of Photography, Maddie Staszak as First AC, Alyson Muzila in the role of Mae (with her 8-year-old daughter, Ava, playing a young Penny), and Diana Vicol doing behind the scenes photography.
Penny—about a hard-core female chef fighting off primitive impulses during a series of dates as memories of her mentally ill mother bleed into current-day life—is being released in March 2022.
