My short film, Icarus Stops For Breakfast, based on the short story EATING by Rick Bass has won the Calcutta Cult International Film Festival Best Women Film award, and The Hollywood Blood Horror Festival award Best Fantasy Short, and The Audience Award Director's Circle Festival
Here Director Abigail and I are with one of the producers of the Maine Festival MIFF Karen Young. And clearly, I love my director.
I also work with others to create films based on their ideas.

I will listen to your two sentences to two paragraph pitch for a short narrative and then work with you to bring that pitch to film. The first two of the three short narratives below were two-sentence pitches and the last one a short story that the director wanted to turn into a short narrative.
