– Dances With Films is the ideal platform to form an attachment to the vivacious Camille Mana and when you see her new feature, you’ll be literally saying “Oh My Lord”!
– Her short “Oh Em Gee” poses the age old question “Can We Live Without Our Phone?” within an amusingly romantic narrative. With Camille in the role of God (shades of Morgan Freeman from “Bruce Almighty” perhaps), she’s way more inviting of course.
– With her venturing into producing duties most recently working on the short “Carnal Orient” which premiered at SlamDance 2016 and going onto numerous notable film festivals, she’s the Asian enchanter the world needs to endorse.


May Grehan in “Pop-Up”
