Ode to Psyche


Ode to Psyche, in which Charise plays Kat, a Long Island-based secretary with secrets, won Best Pilot at the Dances with Films Festival and recently premiered at the historic Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Ode to Psyche also won the Screencraft Pilot Competition and was an Official Select at the New York Shorts International Film Festival. 


She shot the film with Writer and Director Alex Morf, who is also her husband and with whom she runs production company Wild Rye Productions

Full Disclosure


Full Disclosure, in which Charise co-stars with Ryan Daniel Pater, has taken the film festival circuit by storm. Charise and Ryan were nominated for the Best Acting Duo award at the Indie Short Fest in Los Angeles, and the film won Best Comedy at the Amsterdam Short Film Festival. Fun fact--Charise shot this film when she was 6 months pregnant with her daughter, which is all the more reason why her long-time collaborator, Writer and Director Mia Rovegno, deserved the Best Comedy Award at the Amsterdam Film Festival. Mia hid that bump beautifully.

Off the Grid

​Off the Grid, which Charise wrote and stars in, won a gold medal at the International New York Film Festival. Directed by Alex Morf, produced by Wild Rye Productions.
