Written and directed by Laina Burgess, Employ(h)er is a comedy about a group of executives who meet to discuss the creation and implementation of a diversity and inclusion initiative that aims to create more opportunities for men. Originally written as a play for The Artists for All 2017 Female Formation One Act Show, the film stars the original cast, including Beth Pilgreen, Viviana Chavez, Ashlee Heath, Katelin Chesna, and Andrea Laing. The play has also been featured in Atlanta’s Act For A Change One Act Show, as well as Atlanta Talent Live, hosted by The Local Lense in collaboration with Get Scene Studios.
This piece was able to transition from stage to screen thanks to the talents of our Director of Photography and Cinematographer, Travis J. Sawyer. You can learn more about him and his work here.
