Praise for Director Natalie Sena:
I particularly like the use of movement of people (extras) in this, it’s nicely choreographed. Hope to see more work from you in the future. Briony Kidd, Festival Director – Stranger With My Face
Writer/Director Natalie Sena: The inspiration for “A Good Assistant” came from my day job where I am an assistant to an executive. During a colleague’s birthday celebration in the office, I noticed we were using meat carving knives to cut the cake. This macabre realization made me think about how an office setting has all of the tools to dispose of a body and how as an assistant I would do almost anything my boss asks of me…but I would I go as far as dismemberment? This film is based on my life but not autobiographical. I’m excited to have created a film about a young woman that was made by young, diverse women – our crew was 80% female.
