In Los Angeles, she co-directed Tony Award winning actress Julie White in Theresa Rebeck’s GREAT TO SEE YOU, AMERICAN DOLLS for Theatre Neo, and Josh Schiowitz’s THE MESSAGE. Pamela was also the acting coach on the film EVEN STEPHEN, a delightful rom-com, which was chosen to be screened at over a dozen international film festivals. On the streets of New York City, she directed IMPROVISING THE FUTURE for NYFA. To watch the full short film, see link here.
In developing a directing style, she used a great deal of improvisation with her fellow actors, a la Christopher Guest, a tool that was a departure from working with storyboard artist. This style enabled her actors to flow instinctually through the blocking, giving them a great deal of freedom when utilizing her treatment and characters outlines, talking them through the scenes via their wants, needs, obstacles and over-all intentions.
