"Laughter bellowed through the audience during Jessica Makinson’s hilarious short film, Sexxy Dancer..."
"Jessica Makinson’s short Sexxy Dancer is over flowing with joy. When I saw the premier of Sexxy Dancer at the 2018 Marfa Film Festival, I cackled so loudly that my friends were slightly embarrassed. It is that funny... written and directed by Makinson, an actor and comic who I’m thrilled is delving into creating her own works in her singular comedic voice... Expertly shot... the film takes a delightfully strange turn.... Makinson has managed to tell a story that not only looks beautiful and leaves the viewer feeling great, but is also fiercely bizarre and entertaining."
