Hey, I'm Pilar!

Los Angeles, California

I’m a writer/director from Atlanta who gets excited about everything from the French new wave to the bachelor franchise. After graduating with a writing for film and TV from emerson college, I moved to Los Angeles. Here I have plans to make Christmas themed short films, tell bad jokes, and try to get into the Chateau Marmont.
