So, almost a year ago, I saw a craigslist posting – some guy was looking for a drag queen with a Joan Crawford impression to voice a murdering puppet he’d made a feature film about.. and cause I’m that kind of girl, I forwarded it to my friend Michael:
Michael, trusting lamb that he is, went and met with Scott Coblio…
Scott is slightly less creepy than this.
Scott told him this story about this woman in the 30s, named Winnie Ruth Judd. She killed her 2 best friends one night in Phoenix, AZ, chopped them up, packed them in suitcases, and took them on the train with her to Los Angeles! But her bags started leaking… so she got caught… and a bunch of even creepier “1930’s search for true-justice-style” things happened before she reached a not-so-happy end.
Anyway, Scott Coblio had staged the ENTIRE feature-length film about Winnie… using MARIONETTES.
And a little bit of Barbie furniture.
Michael read for a few of the parts and then said “hey! I know an actress who could sound like an old-timey murderess!”
and volunteered me right back.
So, 5 hours later, the thing was in the can..
And NOW! It’s in festivals!
And TONIGHT! It’s playing in Phoenix!

The Arizona Republic interviewed me about it and I said like…the smartest thing ever
2 sticks of gum if you guess what it is.
