synopsis
Coffee literally changes the way I see, think, and interact with other people. BUT FIRST is my way of exploring this through two of my favorite mediums, film and dance.

director
Erin Brown Thomas is a director, writer, and editor whose work spans multiple genres, from experimental films to coming-of-age dramedy and documentary. Her latest short “Feeling Flush” will hit festivals soon, and this summer she will also release “Human” through her production company Versatile Assassins. She also shot and produced the experimental feature “Shedding,” which is awaiting release. Erin’s comedic short “Rekindled” sold to Facebook after playing 12 Oscar-qualifying festivals and winning 15 awards. Her other short films include “But First…”, “Hotwire”, “Adopted”, “Wildman Athletica”, and “?????.” As an editor, Erin cut “Tokyo Project” for EPs Lena Dunham and director Richard Shepard. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and is currently airing on HBO. She’s collaborated with high-level talent such as Selena Gomez, Eminem, Zach Galifianakis, Emmy Rossum, and Elisabeth Moss. Erin is also a workshop participant in the 2019 Commercial Directors Diversity Program. Erin just returned from Italy, where she was scouting for her feature "Italy '99" which is a BlueCat Screenplay Semifinalist.
