On today's episode I got a chance to sit down with Jenna Sofia who's work as both performer and writer-director is driven by a desire to investigate human stories and excavate the myth, folklore and other sacred stories therein. Second Seed: Part 1 was Jenna’s theatrical, musical investigation into personal and familial myth and folklore (Dixon Place). 

The next best step for this investigation was founding Second Seed Productions, a company devoted to upholding the sacred stories. The idea was to first deconstruct and understand her own personal lore and that of her family, in order to be able to widen circles and explore legend and lore of the whole human family. Break the Camera was the company’s premiere project and Jenna’s directorial debut in film (6 Official Selections including Mill Valley Film Festival, 2 nominations, and 3 awards, including Best Experimental Short [Amazing Shorts! Film Festival in Madrid]).

I also talk about the end of the world and freaking out at Costco in the intro. You don't want to miss that.
