Lucy's love affair with cinema began with a well worn VHS copy of 'Cool Hand Luke' that she discovered underneath the tv set but above the Atari console. Growing up on a farm outside of Midway in the 1980s, cable television was but a whispered promise in some utopian future. So she filled her craving for moving images with bi-weekly doses of Paul Newman, well before she knew what half the dialogue meant. Never forgetting this important early education, she began to pursue formal study in college and ultimately graduated with a BA in Film Studies from Emory University. A senior year internship led to a full time publicity position at Fahlgren Entertainment in Atlanta. There, in addition to organizing press junkets and screeenings, she devised promotional strategies for New Line, Fine Line, Lionsgate, IFC, and Sony Pictures Classics in the Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, and Raleigh markets. A bit of wanderlust eventually led her to Los Angeles where she lived for several years soaking up cinematic culture and haunting revival houses. She is thrilled to be back in Kentucky and to discover a community of like minded folks who want to celebrate local filmmaking!
