    "Between Shifts" is a short film that follows Joanne, a lonely diner waitress, as she embarks on a journey one afternoon while on break between her lunch and dinner shifts.


    This modern-day fairytale explores the magic that surrounds us in our everyday lives - the extraordinary in the ordinary - if we’re just willing see it! 


    "Between Shifts" was a semifinalist in the 2014 BlueCat Screenplay Competition: "Poignant, taut and funny, this is a rewarding read, and has the potential to be a film festival audience favorite."


    Our guests this episode will be Actress/Writer/Producer Jaime Saginor, Producer Kellie Dantzler, and Director Lysandra Petersson  to discuss this film and the magic of every day life.
