Black Box *** SUB *** Eye of Horus *** John Oliver

Hey guys! It’s been a while but I have some things to tell/show you!

Last night I was on ABC’s Black Box. The episode is called “Kodachrome” and was directed by the lovely Brownen Hughes.

I played the photographer and though for the most part you can hear my voice, it was a really fun experience and I got to work with really lovely people.

Here it is:

(I also added it to the media page, of course).

There were also a couple of promotional photos that can be seen in the gallery.

Here’s one of them:


I finally finished writing my book “SUB.”

It is currently being edited by my friend Terias McKlay who also edited “As We Were.” We’re aiming for a September release. If it’ll be ready before, believe me, you’ll know. In the mean time, I give you the cover. Art by the extremely talented Hila Taylor (who also did the wonderful cover of As We Were and whose stuff you should totally buy.)


I believe we are 2 episodes away from my 4 episode stint on “The Eye of Horus,” but here are some new promotional photos. All courtesy of “The Eye of Horus.



Last, but not least, I’m very proud to say that our sketch with Lisa Loeb on John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight,” got more than 500,000 views on YouTube (and counting).

It even had some reactions due to the nature of things. Here’s an article on Deadline Hollywood about it!

I think this update was pretty satisfying, don’t you?

More to follow! Have a great weekend!

Hit the MARC *** Galleries *** Social Media

Hey guys!

First and foremost, here’s the new episode (number 7) of “Hit the MARC.”

It is second to last. Who would’ve thought that nearly 2 years of work are finally wrapping up?

You can expect a minisode in 2 weeks time, and then, our series finale.

Here is 7. Enjoy!

The upcoming minisode marks the return of the ukelele. 2 new original songs. Stay tuned! No pun intended.


With all of the massive updates for “Hit the MARC” it was long overdue to update the relevant gallery on this very site. And so I did. You can see it here. In case you want to see the entire episode’s gallery and not just my photos, it is on the “Hit the MARC” Facebook page, right here.

Here’s a little teaser:









Following us on Twitter these days is also smart considering we’re uploading bloopers, photos, teasers and all sorts of exclusive material.

In addition, I also opened a gallery for “The Eye of Horus” after I completed my first round of filming about a week ago. It is here.

Here’s one to give you the jist.



I also updated the contact page and added my latest social media endeavors, which mainly means my Instagram, Tumblr, and Keek.

Check it out! And remember you can always subscribe to updates, also at the bottom of the contact page.


Lastly, I got a fun role in a new original webshow called “Freelancers.” We will be shooting at the very end of April, so updates to come!

Have a great week!

***Like Ingrid Bergman Screening***New Original Short Project***A Tiger in the Dark

Hey guys and a happy holiday season!

Just a few updates so you know what I’ve been up to.

First and foremost, “Like Ingrid Bergman” will be screened as part of the New Filmmakers Festival Winter Series in NYC.

The details:

Friday, January 4th, at 7:30 PM.

The location is:

Courthouse Theater @ Anthology Film Archives

32 Second Ave. NYC

More details can be found here and here.

The trailer is below.



I started working with a lovely guy, Mark Fraunhofer, on a series of half scripted shorts. We just started, so updates to follow, but I already have a few nice stills to show you like this one:

It also called for a gallery update, right here. More to follow!


I’ve recently took part in a shoot for a movie called “A Tiger in the Dark: Indestructible.” This is actually a sequel and my role is quite exciting mostly because I get to give a hard time to others, and that’s always tons of fun. We will resume filming next year, and I can’t wait. It’s one of these stories that you have absolutely no idea what’s going on. Not to mention, I might have an action scene with special effects and whatnot and get to kick some ass.

Here are a few photos:

The yearly Gala for the Iranian American Jewish Federation, which took place at the Lincoln Arts Center in NYC, is behind us. Once again, I had a fabulous time, working with a generous, warm community of people, as part of the LinCommunication team. I sat in the control room, for the second year in a row, in charge of the visual aspects during the event. The gala was followed by a lovely after party on the rooftop of the famous Empire Hotel in NYC. I’m letting the producer side of me rest for a while. But probably not for long.

I recently got cast in my third NYFA project which will be shot early next year. I’m very excited. Work with NYFA is always great and leads to meeting amazing people and portray really cool characters.

There might be zombies involved, and it’s also a lead, so I’m truly happy and can’t wait to work with two lovely guys from Spain who are spending the next few weeks in pre-production, including translating the script from Spanish to English.

I can’t say much yet, but they created a whole new intriguing world, that will be really interesting to explore.

Every time I work with NYFA it’s a bit on the horror-y/sci-fi-y side. I guess I’m just this kind of a girl.

Watch this space!


Hit the MARC is still not forgotten. I shot a short scene yesterday, and yes, we still have a few more to go which is why this is taking so long. But you contributed for us to make a whole season, and so we shall. With two new original songs, a theme song, more interesting characters, and whatnot.


That’s it folks! Happy holidays to you all, wherever you are and whatever it is you’re celebrating!

Be safe and merry and stay warm!

Next update – next year!


Like Ingrid Bergman Premiere *** Rain in Summer in festivals *** Digital Physics


Hey guys!

So a few days ago (on August 12th)  I went to the “Like Ingrid Bergman” world premiere at the NYC International Film Festival!

It was fun to see the cast again, and meet some other filmmakers and watch their work. Some of them were wonderful.

Watch out for “Foodie” and for “Say it Ain’t Solo”.

We also had a short Q & A at the end and got good responses. So definitely a good afternoon for everyone involved.

Here are a few pictures, they were also uploaded to the gallery.



There’s also a trailer you can watch:

And then there’s our Indiegogo campaign, and for $10 only you can get your own copy of the film and help us send it to more festivals! Here’s the website.



“Rain in Summer” has been doing incredibly well!

Here are the festival it got into:

Lancaster Area Film Festival

Media Film Festival (Winner of Audience Award)

New Filmmakers New York

NYC Downtown Short Film Festival

Park City Film Music Festival

Park Slope Film Festival

Queens World Film Festival

River Bend Film Festival

SENE Film, Music and Arts Festival (Winner for best LGBT Film)

Talking Pictures Festival

Nice list indeed, and if you’re around NYC, and want to see the film for $6 only in an evening that includes more events, you can check out the Facebook event here. It’ll be screened as part of the New Filmmakers Festival.


Today I was on the set of “Digital Physics”. It’s my second feature, they’ve been filming for a month now, and I only joined in for the day to play a street musician. Tiny part, but, it was a lot of fun because they trusted me enough to know I’ll teach myself a short melody on the recorder on which I’ve never played in my life. So I used the last month to do that. It was fun, good people and hopefully we’ll see some footage next year 🙂


Lots of other things are happening. Hit the MARC  for start is wrapping its season. Not for you, but yes for us. We already filmed parts from episode 6,7,8 (8 is the season finale), and we’re not done, but getting there. Once we *are* done, you can probably expect something new every 2-4 weeks from mid September, to probably December/January.

I’m writing some new things, for screen, and also not for screen. No need to jinx, but most definitely watch this space.

Until the next time!

Have a wonderful week!

*** Hit the MARC present and future *** Steam Clock *** Site Application *** New Pics and Vids!

Christmas might be over, but the holiday season is not over just yet, and just before heading back to shoot episode 3 in January, the cast of Hit the MARC wanted to wish you happy holidays!

Episode three is coming next year with some new faces! Stay tuned!


On November, I got to take part in an amazing production called “Steam Clock”. The silent short film, which is sort of a Sci-Fi thriller, was shot in 2 days at Staten Island, NY NY, with an amazing cast (included Hit the MARC’s Pillar, aka Constanza Palavecino, an amazing performer and friend) and amazing crew from the New York Film Academy. The movie was directed by the incredibly talented Thomas Della Bella, who also built the entire set on his own. Hopefully you’ll get to see the movie shortly! I saw it on a big screen and it looks great. You can check out pics in the new “Steam Clock” gallery, and see couple of examples just below. It was an amazing experience with great people and I feel very blessed that I got to take part in it.


Thanks to a wonderful friend who also built this website, you can now get updates to your very own smart phone! All you need to do is download the Chen Drachman application (Yes, I know…) to your phone and you’re good to go! To download, click here from your smart phone, or just search “Chen Drachman” on the market/the Iphone variation of that. : ) Make sure you go to the application’s settings and turn on the notifications option!

It’s quite cool, and guess what? Totally free 🙂


Many galleries were updated, including “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Buffy’s Once More With


In addition, a gallery was opened for “Knock B4 Entering”, a drama showcase, and for “A Day To Remember”, a musical showcase.

Speaking of the above, video of the scene from “Knock B4 Entering” is now on Youtube, as is a video of “Frank Mills” from “A Day To Remember”.

Feel free to watch by clicking the show’s name above!

Last but not least, the song “All That Comes and Goes”, which was written based on a text by the incredibly talented Alejandro Moscoso, was added to the Song Writing section!

Enjoy and have a wonderful holidays season!
