Pamela worked for Pixar University, an in-house filmmaking program at Pixar Animation Studios, where she also taught acting. She directed three short plays there, one of which she adapted for the screen – Susan Glaspell’s TRIFLES. It was screened at the Reel Women Film Festival, Beverly Hills.
Pamela directed a new short play by playwright Jeffrey Sweet for AND theatre company in Manhattan.
She also directed IMPROVISING THE FUTURE for the New York Film Academy. To watch the full short film, see link here.
In Los Angeles, Pam 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. She was 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.
Pam also wrote and directed the film SHAKTI’S RETREAT, using a great deal of improvisation with her fellow actors, a tool that was a departure from previous work.
