Our 4th release of Nao Bustamante’s selected voice memos.
This installment continues the focus on Fufu, her dog, notes-to-self, but also contains several notes about her film TABLEAU(2013).
We’re pleased to present the video here too! A bonus track to the Voice Memos collection. It’s like seeing how the sausage gets made!
In her hilarious fiction short, Nao Bustamante captures another experimental filmmaker, JT (played by noted queer filmmaker Joshua Thorson) as he struggles with his apocalyptic film and the pesky interruptions by the tween next door.
