Archer's short film, Carnival Daydream, has won awards and been selected by festivals including The Palm Springs International Comedy Festival and The Artists Forum Festival. Its intention was to express an ode to the first taste of independence you experience as a pre-teen, sans parental supervision, with your crush. Archer wanted to encapsulate that moment of her youth, running rampant, wild, and free where anything was possible.
