Best Emergent Local Filmmaker

Ericka Marsalis-LaManna

She's talkin' 'bout a new generation. This first-time, Austin-based filmmaker (and Texas State University alumna) is a jack of all film trades: producer, writer, director, and editor of the award-winning, locally shot comedy Generation Me. The film examines dating in the age of social networking, where online status updates and a single-sentence comment can make or break a relationship, especially when friends weigh in. Marsalis-LaManna's TrendSmasher Productions expects to begin production on its second feature film this spring.
