She also received a 2008 Golden Globe nomination for her performance as Rosalind in HBO’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, written and directed by Kenneth Branagh.
As a filmmaker, Howard has created content for multiple campaigns such as Canon’s “Project Imagination,” MoroccanOil’s “Inspired,” Vanity Fair’s “Decade Series” with Radical Media, and Glamour Magazine’s “Reel Moments.” Howard has also directed content for MTV’s “Supervideo: M83’s Claudia Lewis,” Sony and Lifetime’s “Five More: Call Me Crazy” and most recently “solemates” in conjunction with Canon’s “Project Imagination: The Trailer.” Howard has directed over a dozen short films, and has received numerous accolades for her work, including being shortlisted for an Oscar in 2012 for her half-hour film “When You Find Me.” She also produced the Sony Classics film Restless starring Mia Wasikowska, with director Gus Van Sant. Restless was featured as part of the 2011 Toronto Film Festival and opened the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard selection.
