‘#PopFan’ Director Vanessa Parise Finds Her Niche in Telepics

22 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Director Vanessa Parise had barely graduated from Harvard when she wrote and helmed her first feature, MGM’s 2002 rom-com “Kiss the Bride.”

In a sign of the times for helmers, Parise (pictured) in recent years has segued to telepics, where she’s found opportunities to direct projects for Lifetime and Hallmark Channel. Her latest Lifetime entry, the thriller “#PopFan,” bows on Aug. 23, toplined by Chelsea Kane, star of ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy.”

Parise found her passion for directing at the crossroads of acting and attending medical school, ultimately deferring the latter to attend New York City’s Circle in the Square Acting Conservatory. With her acting background, Parise focuses on working closely with talent to help find the tone of the film that works best.

“I feel like part of my responsibility as a director is to determine how each actor works – everyone has a different technique,” Parise said. »
