Shelton died on May 15 due to a blood disorder. Shelton was born in Oberlin, Ohio, and grew up in Seattle, then went on to attend Oberlin College and the University of Washington School of Drama, then the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, where she studied photography and related media.

"I have some terrible news".

"There was a previously unknown, underlying condition", he said. He also clarified that her death was not connected to COVID-19. 'The doctors could not save her. She broke out with her 2008 comedy Humpday, starring Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard as two straight friends who decide to have filmed gay sex on a dare, which earned a Special Jury Prize at Sundance and was later given a French-language remake titled Do Not Disturb. So this is truly sudden, bad news.

Shelton was still working hard right up until her untimely passing having recently directed episodes of Apple TV+ series Dickinson and The Morning Show, as well as Hulu's new limited series Little Fires Everywhere. She made me happy.

Grand Theft Auto V is free until 21 May 2020
The popular video game GTA 5 (or Grand theft Auto - GTA V ) is offered free of charge to users of the Epic Games Store . So sit back, relax, and remember: crime doesn't pay (though getting GTA V for free definitely counts as a steal).

Though approached to direct mainstream studio fare, including the Marvel superhero film "Black Widow", Shelton stayed true to her indie roots with such small-scale films as "Touchy Feely", "Laggies" and her most recent film, the wry comedy "Sword of Trust", which premiered at the South by Southwest festival a year ago and was released last summer.

"Her work is so inspiring". "To have total creative control and to really be able to make exactly what I wanted to make", she explained, "which is what making movies at the level that we've been making movies at allows you to do". Her career took off after the 2009 film Humpday, which was acquired by Magnolia Pictures for distribution and went on to screen in the Director's Fortnight section at Cannes and receive the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award in 2010.

"It's just unbelievable what they'll come up with", Shelton said of her "Sword of Trust" cast, which included Maron and Jillian Bell.

She was collaborating with Maron on a script for an upcoming film, and was in a romantic relationship with him at the time of her death. On Saturday, tributes poured in from the film community, full of praise for her films, but also her character and kindness. Her spirit was pure joy. We butted heads, made up, laughed, pushed each other. I really can't believe what is happening, ... Some I do. I'm just trying to let the people who were important to her know. I wish we had made more. "This is a horrendous, sad loss", he added.
