While at Marymount, Jordan took on many projects from music videos, and documentaries to short fiction narratives. Her greatest strength as a filmmaker is her eye for aesthetics and camera technique. Jordan prides herself in productivity, and the ability to maintain a lively and enjoyable working atmosphere. She is also a self-taught photographer and in constant pursuit of knowledge. While attending college, Jordan has accomplished being on the Dean’s List, received an award for her Academic Excellence in a minor, as well as balanced several leadership roles such as First Generation Peer Guide, and Freshman Peer Leader. Currently, Jordan is working on her film “Lilith” and preparing for more festival submissions. Jordan’s goal as a filmmaker is to capture the human experience, no matter how sweet or twisted it might be. She is currently looking for her next opportunity.
Jordan is an alt-feminist with a passion for the dark and unusual. Her goal is to break patriarchal norms in her films while advocating for the odd and unusual. She leans toward heavy contrast aesthetics as can be seen in her film Lilith. Jordan’s goal with the short film is to spark thought about assault survivors and how women are generally depicted in the film. Assault survivors, while they are victims are often painted as “fragile”, “emotionally weak” or even “broken” post their assault. While trauma caused by assault or violence by a loved one can leave lasting effects, the survivors are strong and deserve to be seen in a light that doesn’t strip away their power. Often times the abuser is seen as a main character. As a society, we look at the abusers and learn more about them than the actual victim. This can be seen through murder investigations or other large court cases. We say “poor victim” but forget about their story as soon as they are no longer on the screen. The audience should also take a moment to reflect on how women are presented in media. They have always been the victim and side characters to a man’s world. This film is about stripping away the man’s view and making women.
