Commercial and narrative filmmaker Carlyn Hudson swung by the Official studio to talk shop with hosts Mark Rinehart, Tony Franklin, and Matthew Sultan.

Carlyn Hudson is a left-of-center comedy director and writer from a little bitty town in Texas who now calls Los Angeles home.

Her horror/comedy short WAFFLE premiered in competition at SXSW in 2020 and has since been played on thousands of laptops (and hopefully a few TV screens) across the globe, picking up multiple best director awards in the process. Another reviewer compared her to Jordan Peele but she's too embarrassed to cite that one here. Other recent shorts include the dark comedy/sci-fi THE WORKPLACE, distributed by Dust and Gunpowder and Sky, and NICE ASS, another SXSW premiere about, you guessed it, a giant butt.

As a commercial director, Carlyn specializes in stylish dialogue comedy and has worked with brands such as JIF (one of Source Creative’s top campaigns of 2020), Lexus, Hasbro, Kroger, and Annovera, whose campaign starring Whitney Cummings won a Cannes Silver Lion in 2021.

In 2020, Carlyn received the high honor of being in the top 2% of Taylor's Swift's Spotify listeners *in the world.* When she’s not listening to Folklore on repeat, she’s likely bossing around her partner, Alexandria, and attempting to train their growing cadre of rescue pets.
