April is actively working as a documentary and narrative feature director, with aspirations to work in episodic as well. She loves genre and dark character material, documentaries and Americana, especially stories rooted in history or real events that involve elements of politics, conspiracy, technology, sci-fi, government, or exploring the dark side of human nature. She’s in post on the action-documentary STUNTWOMEN: THE UNTOLD HOLLYWOOD STORY, featuring Michelle Rodriguez, which included shooting drift car racing sequences with the top stunt driver in the business. Her doc CARNIVAL was recently one of 5 finalists for Tribeca IF/THEN. April’s set to direct a supernatural thriller feature for Lionsgate digital this fall, and she was tapped by the El Rey Network to create original network branding spots in 2016. As a writer, April won a Script Magazine competition early in her career and quickly became a produced writer with an ultra-low budget thriller released by Troma. Her first narrative feature as writer/director LAYOVER premiered at Cinequest in 2009 to great reviews. She has several features and pilots in development that have recently been finalists for the Sundance Labs and the WIF/Blacklist Labs. April’s most recognized project to date is her first documentary feature GOING ATTRACTIONS: THE DEFINITIVE STORY OF THE AMERICAN DRIVE-IN MOVIE where she had the honor of learning from Roger Corman.
