I began my career as a performer. I walked into audition waiting rooms to find 6 people who looked just like me and wondered what was going to make me stand out. I was handed pages of black text and no backstory and asked to create a character. With Slate, I wanted to show what the process of creating a character from nothing was like by going inside the head of an incredibly talented actress to see what she pulls from and what she thinks about at every moment of the script.
