METRO DUDES, directed by Maxime Brulein, is a web-series where Mackezie plays the love interest of metro-sexual Shawn (Seth Harrington). In the middle of attempting to obtain a very rare and highly desired moisturizer, Shawn is distracted from the mission by his lust for the heart of Holly (Mackenzie) aka “H&M girl.” With the help of his friends Cliff (Kristoffer Wight Kelly) and Pedro (Ric Rosario), Shawn attempts to make first contact with the girl of his dreams.
THE VIOLIN was a rare chance for Mackenzie to take out her violin and play on screen. This AFI short directed by Inbar Gilboa, tells the story of a 17-year-old boy (Raviv Ullman) who falls in love with a girl named Judit (Sarah Drew) in 1944 Hungary. The two are separated during the Nazis invasion, but then reunited in a concentration camp. Mackenzie played Judit’s friend in her violin class before the Nazi invasion.
PIZZA GIRL was a feature written and directed by Brian Murphy. In this film, Mackenzie played a spunky tennis playing Japanese Pop character. The film was done as a mix of live action and Japanese style animation. This character actually inspired the creation of another character I bring out in improv sketches that I named “Yumi.” Mackenzie admits.
