Filmmaker Erin Brown Thomas is constantly creating.  Her work is bold and oscillates between formalism and naturalism. She has a proclivity for blending genres, most often combining comedy, drama, and movement. Her films have received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and have been curated by Vimeo. Her work is often described as a mixture of whimsical, clever, and haunting and has screened in over 92 film festivals worldwide.
