Her productions and performances have been honored in local and regional competitions. Most recently, her webseries, Canyon County, won the Ginny Award for inspiration, creativity and imagination.

Elliot Norton


A native of the Midwest, Elliot was fascinated by movies from an early age. His first memories are of waiting in line outside of theaters or sitting in his house's darkened basement re-watching Tim Burton's Batman. As he grew older, he became determined to tell stories of his own. His instinct led him to theater, becoming a regular director and board member of Lewis and Clark Theatre Co. in South Dakota. With the help of his brother and wife, Elliot founded LowerGentry Studios in 2014 with the aim of providing high quality cinema on beer-money budgets. He has written and directed five feature-length projects and numerous short films, each receiving awards and grants throughout the Northwest.
