 Recognition for Naomi Eckhaus

In 2013, we finished the film Endings. Its lovely texture and performances were brought to life by an amazing cast of actors.

Naomi Eckhaus had the challenge of portraying the elderly Mother in two totally different life stages. Her performance – the credibility of those different life stages – was one key to the film's success.

Of course, the fact that Naomi was totally intrepid about the role isn't obvious in the film. But her "performance," swimming in an unheated outdoor pool in early June (that is, frigid water) and performing all the poolside pieces that go together to create a very key stunt in the film was the performance of a total trouper.

This web site is devoted to the film work done by Turnip and friends. There are pages for every film and information about films we have shot for other filmmakers. There are also some links to other filmmakers in the region and various resources of value. We are always interested in meeting other filmmakers and helping out with others' film projects as time permits. Get in touch and let's do lunch!
