Official REMEDY Trailer
WORK: Episode 1 – Timewasters
TODRICK IS COMING TO CHICAGO
Thank you Bob the Drag Queen for the referral. Shot mostly by me in a photo studio, some extra and very essential shooting by Jared Roybal in Chicago the Musical’s official Broadway home. Edited by me. Soup to nuts, this one took 72 hours.
Twirl Diary 21
This is the official trailer for Twirl Diary 21, a film by writer-director Roger Kingsepp. Roger hired me to shoot and edit his first film, a visual diary of New York City back rooms and gay bars of 1994, shot on the street 21 years (to the day) later. I am extremely proud to have been a part of this project – for more information, visit TwirlDiary21.com.

“Limitless” (from “Wasted Love”)
I shot and edited this music video for a production called “Wasted Love,” a not-so-fairy-tale from the all-abilities dance company Born Dancing Inc. under the direction of Melissa van Wijk. The video was projected onto a large screen behind live dancers who were performing similar choreography on stage. The recording is “Limitless” by Misty Boyce, and she performed the song live during the show — because of this, the video includes a long shot of the Central Park pond to cue the performers and musicians.
Shoot Days: 2. Budget: Box of pizza and a clip lamp. Crew: Me and 20 drag queens. Turnaround: 5 days. Bob’s Direction: “I kinda like those Skrillex videos.”
While this wasn’t the video that got Bob the Drag Queen on “Drag Race,” I want to think it was the one that got him on RuPaul’s radar.

Bob the Drag Queen
My work with Bob the Drag Queen started back in 2014, when I walked into the wrong vegan bar and became fast friends with his then-roommate Honey LaBronx. A few months later, Bob asked me to shoot and edit the first of two RuPaul’s Drag Race audition music videos. Bob went on to win Season 8. This section is devoted to two full length projects with the comedian, Bob the Drag Queen: Suspiciously Large Woman currently on Logo and Revry and the upcoming docu-comedy-megaspecial A Queen for the People, coming to you in 2018.

A Queen for the People – Seed & Spark Campaign Video
BOB THE DRAG QUEEN! CAN WE TIP HER? YES WE CAN! This ridiculous video was part of a Seed & Spark campaign for the upcoming comedy/documentary special A Queen for the People.
Words cannot describe how fun these videos were to make. Intentionally bad green screening? YES PLEASE. (How else do you show the world how much you need the funding?)
FilmmakerCheyenne Picardo received her BA in Film Studies and Creative Writing from Columbia College, determine to be a film critic and theorist. Then she fell in love with editing and documenting self-described freaks of the New York performance scene, eventually earning her MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Just before grad school, Picardo took the job that inspired her first feature film REMEDY, that of a pro-switch (dominatrix/submissive) at a commercial dungeon in New York City. Her focus recently has been using subjective storytelling techniques to explore sexuality, gender, mental health, memory, and marginalization. She hopes to harness the power of the mass-media’s influence over culture to destroy outdated and dangerous tropes. In short, she is committed as a filmmaker and film educator to dismantling the destructive legacy of the Hays Code, one frame at a time.
