Cast and Crew

Laura Jean Cronin, Writer, Director, Producer
Laura Jean was born in the Bronx and raised in the Northwest. She learned the art of filmmaking through an eclectic self fashioned education that includes a BFA in photography, painting and printmaking, a three year sojourn of studying art in Florence Italy, an MA in Italian Cinema, and a Ph.D. ABD in Film Studies at the University of Washington. The inspiration of “One Night” stems from the question, “what would you do with yourself the day after you took a human life.” From there the writer/director just needed the how, why and who. “One Night” is Laura Jean’s sixth short film.

She sees her son Ignatius, who is now a year old, as a reason to renew her creative efforts.
