Director Biography - I am a film student at Palm Beach College in Lake Worth, Florida, USA. I am called to the work of a storyteller by a combination of my imagination and technology. I am fascinated by the history of film and its relationship with culture. I enjoy the collaborative process of film as a counter balance to the solo endeavor of writing.
I am here to make life affirming films that explore the world through the eyes of the people and places I find intriguing. My intention is to create mindful entertainment that is spiritually evocative and nourishing to the soul.

Director Statement The Heartbeat Bill in GA is changing many women's lives. As a woman who believes in "Women's Rights" this script spoke to me on so many levels, I connected with Jane and empathize. Jane's story needed to be told and I was the filmmaker that needed to tell it. I decided to film "The Deal" handheld for an organic feeling of we, as an audience was right beside Jane, holding her hand. Every shot was planned to capture authentic vulnerability portrayed by Alexandra Rose (Jane).So many stories like Jane's are happening, it's up to us to make that change and bring awareness to this subject.

Threshold director Misha Penton, Music Video, USA, English, 2020, 7:52 min.
What kind of world will we choose to create together?
The experimental music film is inspired by the Homeric Hymn to Demeter (c. seventh century BCE) which tells a mother-daughter passion play of abduction, loss, and renewal. Ceremonial rites enacting the myth were held at Eleusis in Greece for a thousand years before the rise of Christianity, and artists, then and now, freely interpret the story. We have very few details about the original events, but they were thought to be transformational for participants, honoring the cycle of life and offering a philosophy based in meaning and hope.
