Our very own students of Lee Colee Studios recently were selected as a finalist at the Austin Film Festival “Young Film Makers” competition.

Mischief and Mayhem:  A Fairy’s Guide to the Human World,” also includes our students in the cast:  Genevieve Hodge, Ian Crain and Dylan Blunk from Wimberley and Cassie Martin from Dripping Springs.
Only 17, Wimberley’s Isabelle Hodge and her award winning short film, “Mischief and Mayhem:  A Fairy’s Guide to the Human World,” has been selected from submissions from all over the country to be featured at The Austin Film Festival this season.

As a student at Lee Colee Studios in Wimberley, she cast her fellow classmates in the production.  Dylan Blunk 17 and Ian Crain 14 along with her 14 year old sister, Genevieve and 13 year old Cassie Martin from Dripping Springs bring her film to the screen with a panache that should impress industry professionals in Austin.

Isabelle is a vocalist, dancer and actress with several leading stage roles under her belt, appearing most recently as Dorothy Brock in a production of “42nd Street,”  the step mom in “Cinderella,” and a soloist in “Smokey Joe’s Cafe.”  She is also a member of the successful Black Diamond Competitive Dance Team, helping to bring in 1st place awards consistently in the past two seasons.  She also sings with her sister Genevieve in their sister act, Hduo. Her passion for film making began rather recently and she has used her sister as her muse in earlier projects that won them “Best Film” and “Best Actress” in local film festivals.  Over the past summer Isabelle was accepted into a college level film workshop in North Carolina while only a junior in high school.
Plans are being made for a local showing of the film in Wimberley. For additional info call 512-847-7934
