Lucinda is a native New Mexican who grew up under the inspiration of silent and classical Hollywood landmark films. As far back as she can remember she has loved to tell stories. She has over 30 years experience in the theater, ten of them professionally in theaters in Central Coast, California. She is a writer, director, actress, editor and producer. Currently she is in post-production on her full length documentary [Duke City Derby (DCD)] about the New Mexico roller derby travel team, the Munecas Muertas, 2008-2009 season. The music video, “Reach Out of the Darkness,” that she shot and directed for the Strawberry Zots aired on MTV’s 120 Minutes in the late 1980’s. Lucinda created and established both the film and drama programs at DATA Charter High School, a local charter high school that caters to technology and the arts. She is thrilled to be producing for The Duke City Shootout, one of the most original film festivals in the country.
Marcia A. Woske, originally hailing from Taos, New Mexican, has been working in the film industry since graduation from the College of Santa Fe in 2003. Marcia discovered her love for filmmaking at Taos High School in a television production class. The calling to produce lead her to the Moving Image Arts department at the College of Santa Fe and concluded with an internship on “The Missing” as Ron Howard’s personal intern. In 2003 Marcia utilized the wealth of New Mexican resources by producing the shooting of an exercise video, “Taos Stretch Works”. Quickly following, Marcia landed her first job as a Production Assistant (PA), in the AD department, on “Elvis Has Left the Building”; and began learning the complex inner workings of management on a professional film set. She continued to work as a PA on such notable productions as “North Country”, ”Into the West”, and “The Longest Yard”, until she was grandfathered into the Director’s Guild of America in 2005 and became an Assistant Director.
As an Assistant Director Marcia works closely with the Director to create his or her vision and assists in the achievement of every shot. Marcia’s credits as an Assistant Director includes: “The Astronaut Farmer”, “Beerfest”, “Wanted: Undead or Alive”, “Buried Alive”, “Sunshine Cleaning”, “Love Lies Bleeding”, “The Burrowers”, “Spirit”, “Not Forgotten”, “Observe and Report”, “Breaking Bad”, and “Crazy Heart”. In 2005 Marcia joined IATSE Local 480 as a grip and has been working in-between AD jobs using technical skills she learned while working at Serious Grippage and Light, a local equipment rental house, during college.
Working as an Assistant Director has been an opportunity for Marcia to learn the business and creative aspects of production, and working as a Grip has given her prospective on the technical aspects of movie-making. In 2009 Marcia produced two short films, “Delivering Fate”, which won numerous awards at the 48hr Film Festival, and “The Incredible Voyage of Captain Hook”, now in post-production. Marcia continues to seek meaning full content and to develop her portfolio of short films.
In less than two years Sheryl Brown has produced two shorts, three spec commercials, and the feature, “Malice in Wonderland – The Dolls Movie”. Given a good script, talent, crew and the potential synergy of this mix you think she would have said “yes” to producing a short for this year’s competition. However, this long time fan of the Duke City Shootout didn’t say yes… more like “Hell yes!” More on Sheryl: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3578251/
A recent transplant to the Land of Enchantment, Aimée Chiu is looking to make her mark in the local film industry and is ecstatic to be a producer for the 2010 Duke City Shootout. Raised in Kansas, she considers herself a Chicagoan (go Cubs!) and spent the last four years living in Washington, D.C. Though she considered a career as an anthropology professor, Aimée accidentally became a documentary filmmaker instead, finding storytelling – whether fictional or factual – one of the greatest ways one can explore culture, humanity and oneself. She is currently the production manager for a feature-length horror film. When she grows up, she would like to be an amalgam of Errol Morris, Sofia Coppola and Quentin Tarantino. Her favorite authors are Antonia Fraser and Irvine Welsh and her favorite pastime is traveling, preferably the kind that requires a passport.
