Check out some reflections from my experiences as one of 6 writers at this year's Black List Labs!
First up is Dagny Looper, author of SLEEPING WITH THE DEAD: "This is film school packed into one intense week that is centered around not just improving your script but making you a better writer. This is the best experience I’ve ever had in my life as a writer."
Excited to announce that "Tiny Mammals" will have its international premiere as one of 8 shorts in the American Indie shorts section at the Leiden International Film Festival on Sunday, November 5, 2017.
Pack those bags for the Netherlands!
Happy to announce that I was picked for the 2017 Black List Labs taking place in Los Angeles this month! I'll be working on my script, "Sleeping with the Dead," with the brilliant mentors: Scott Myers, Phil Hay (“Ride Along”), Jamie Linden (“Money Monster”), Phyllis Nagy (“Carol”), Allison Schroeder (“Hidden Figures”) and Kiwi Smith (“Legally Blonde”).
When Halley's Comet passes perilously close to Earth in 1910, the small town of Little Flock, Arkansas is gripped by fear of the end of the world, which forces its undertaker to stand up against religious zealots in order to protect his family.
