Lucille, a 14-year-old alligator, finally gets to spend the summer with her estranged father Bill, a blues guitarist. She joins him and his band on tour to help out as a roadie and looks forward to spending time with him. She hopes playing the guitar together and learning to play his hit-song: Cold Blooded Woman will help build a better relationship. On stage Bill is charming, but getting close to Bill is not what she expected as she discovers the true meaning behind his music.

Trouble in Mind is my 11 minute 2D short film. The film has been in development since 2015, writing the script and working on the storyboards. The project got selected for European Short Pitch 2016 and won the prize for best pitch.
This year (2020) we'll start production and hopefully finish the film late 2021. The project is supported financially by the Netherlands Film Fund and AFK (Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst).
