Catfight Short Film - Wrapped!

Vanessa recently wrapped on a short film called, “Catfight” cast by Rebecca LaGore from Liz Lewis Casting.

She plays “Barb” a retired death match fighter, who now trains the new girls that form Bill’s Bombshells. When she falls in love with the prized fighter, Sadie, she hatches a plan for them to escape together- but not everything goes as planned. Will their love win in the end?

Vanessa was thrilled to be a part of this production because it not only stars two actresses of Asian descent in the lead roles plus was a story highlighting a love between two women - but she got to do her own stunts and fight choreography.
