Helloooo! My name is Jamie but my local priest calls me sex kitten ;))) Ok so now the jokes r out the way hiya angels I'm a trans femme/non-binary filmmaker slash artist slash poet slash general poor person and I am here this month to let u know that I have recently made a thing! *~* abt growing up not realising I was trans and coping w/ my gender dysphoria through the most amazin female video game characters ever and living vicariously thru character creation systems <3 

...and turns out it's not just me! What started off as a v personal project basically psychoanalysing myself lmao turned into a lovely lil experimental doc thing abt how video games can provide a lot of joy + liberation to marginalised ppl out here in the real world - but also a load of obstacles n restrictions too?? It's a lot but without further ado I am sooo excited to share with u my new film A Woman on the Internet (or, The Eternal Scream) xoxo

+++ that's not all folks! This is the second entry in a longer series I've been working on since 2017 called IDENTITY QUEST (all abt longing for ur identity and using gaming as the medium for that) - the first entry being a wonderful short poetry film I made in 2019 with my amazing talented beautiful gorgeous mate and TWP alum Deborah Findlater <3 It's called Outsourcing (My Desires to Avatars) and I'm super stoked to be able to share that here too :)
