Lindsey Haun is best known as a gold-record-awarded singer, former Disney Movie Surfer, and for her starring roles in films like Village of the Damned, Shrooms, The Color of Friendship, and as Sookie’s cousin Hadley on HBO’s True Blood. In the last two years Lindsey has transitioned into directing. In 2013 she directed, edited and starred in “Addiced,” the award-winning debut music video for her band The Haun Solo Project. In 2014 she shot a Kickstarted featurette, Nanoblood, a queer sci-fi drama about three lovers and the bots that tore them apart, and she also directed a pair of dark comedy shorts: Hanky Panky, a dinner party rom-com from the perspective of the napkins, and Coming To, a bold depiction of the aftermath of a meth relapse based on a true story and shot in a single take (winner of the Fearless Filmmaking Grand Prize at Slamdance Film Festival). All of Lindsey’s films explore the dark psychosexual underside of daily life, rendered in the singular aesthetic vision that marks her work as that of an emerging auteur.
