DOONBY

 

It was absolute pleasure to work with Jenn on our movie. She brought huge depth to Laura's character.  Some of her scenes were breathtaking and the final scene that we shot left me feeling as emotional as her. Jenn fully captured her character's erratic journey, engendering a feeling of sympathy in a performance that will bring great feelings of sympathy for Laura as well as frustration at what she does. She totally nailed her spoiled little rich girl nature and I want to thank her for making my job as a director so easy.

Jenn Gotzon was a delight to work with. A surprise around every corner. Just when I thought I had a good idea of what she was going to do next... she'd floor me with an amazing acting choice from far over the left field fence!
Loved the experience.

John Schneider

Lead Actor in Doonby
(tv's "Smallville" and "The Dukes of Hazzard")

 

 

One truly bright spot in "Doonby" was the fresh, breakout performance of a new leading female star, Jenn Gotzon. Keep your eye on her career. We're likely to see a lot more of her on the silver screen.

Jenn is young & beautiful, with the ability to express emotions way beyond her years. The Mother- Daughter connection was so easy. I'd love to work with her again.

A 'Frost/Nixon' production staffer said it was eerie because everyone felt they were really watching the Nixon family go through the ordeal on that infamous day in 1974.

 

 

THE RIFT

 

I had seen much of Jenn's work and was fully expecting to be blown away by what she would bring to "The Rift."  Her performance was spot on.  I remember leaving set physically exhausted, having watched her descend to the dark emotional places that were necessary for her to bring this character to life.  Beyond her performance, it was her passion, dedication to character, and her unwavering commitment to helping me tell this story that truly won my heart. I also wrote "The Rift" and as Jenn was giving me her research notes, it was such an amazing moment when I realized that she had grasped and understood the character on a deeper level than even I had.  She is the caliber of talent that directors dream of working with. It was an honor to entrust a piece of this story to her.  And I truly hope that this is one of much collaboration together.
