In House: Ansley Elizabeth Lee’s Debut Film

Workhouse Creative’s new VFX artist Ansley Elizabeth Lee may be a wiz behind the computer screen but she’s also been flexing her muscles as a budding director.

Ansley recently graduated from Cornish College of the Arts for Motion Design & Original Works but has always had a passion for film, so much in fact that she wrote and directed the very first short film to come out of Cornish College as a part of her senior design project.

Her film entitled WACO, is a coming of age story about a group of teens living in the small town of Waco, Texas. The project also contained an interactive radio play that when paired with the short, creates a cohesive transmedia campaign that pushes the boundaries of how we experience stories.

WACO has already begun its festival run and premiered last Wednesday at the Lone Fir Film Festival in Portland, Oregon. Ansley has sited the experience as “extremely empowering” and is excited to see how far WACO can go. 

We’re so proud of Ansley and know that her passion for storytelling will only lead to bigger and better things here at Workhouse Creative.
