In 2005, Kristin won a top award at Worldfest International Film Festival for her very first short film. From there, she thought it would be funny to make a movie about eating hot dogs.

Kristin held a screening of the hot dog movie at the University of Houston, the very establishment where she had previously received a degree. In Literature.
