I also work with others to create films based on their ideas.
Everybody has a story. I will get your story to script.
(I take people’s ideas and I turn them into films.)
As a writer, actress, and director I am collaborative by nature. I look forward to working with you on your film, bouncing ideas back and forth like instruments in a jazz band.
I will listen to your two sentences or verbal pitch or read your pages for a short narrative and then work with you to bring your story to film. The first two of the four short narratives below were two-sentence pitches and the third a short story that the director wanted to turn into a short narrative. The last one was a personal journey for the writer. All them an honor to work on.
