22 • Photographer/Filmmaker • Downtown Los Angeles

Having lived in Portland, Palm Desert, Andover and Santa Barbara, Lucy Bidwell is never afraid to try something new. CURRENT PROJECT Adapting an anthology of Tony Arcabascio short stories into Now You Know, a feature-length film comprised of vignettes by different filmmakers. FAVORITE RESTAURANT Axe. BIG BREAK Last year, I took time off to work as Tamra Davis’ assistant on the VH1 show called “Single Ladies.” She directed Billy Madison, so it was cool to work for a female director whose movies I grew up watching. HIDDEN TALENT I step dance. FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPHERS Ryan McGinley, Hiroshi Sugimoto. MY CALIFORNIA I love the landscape and the laid-back attitude, but I’ve really come to love L.A. because it’s a city where characters are welcomed and celebrated.
