Life after "Another Life"

After 3 awards, 12 official selections, and 18 months on the film festival circuit, the time has come to put Another Life on the shelf and move on.

Another Life holds a very special place in my heart. A talented cast. A brilliant crew. And fantastic audiences. Making this film and taking it to festivals has been one of the most magical experiences of my life... but this chapter has come to an end.

Now I must write the next chapter, starting with:
  • 2 Managers requested my scripts after I made Finalist at the Page Awards
  • 1 Director requested my scripts through a friend
  • 1 Distributor from a film festival requested my scripts
  • 2 Producers from the Austin Screenwriting Conference requested my scripts

From now on, this blog is dedicated to my uphill battle as an emerging screenwriter in L.A.

With all this professional interest in my screenplays -- a girl-power action-thriller Furious Angels and a low-budget horror Red Snow -- I'm putting down my mantle as a director (for now!) to pursue a career as a working screenwriter of thrillers and family dramas.

All I have are 2 scripts, a bunch of hard-working filmmakers for friends, and a head full of ideas.

But I hereby vow to find representation, sell those scripts, and write for Hollywood for a living --and you'll be the first to hear about it, every step of the way.

Here I go, turn the page.

At our final film festival, Another Life won the Jury Selection Award at the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival this past weekend!

This festival was a blast! A must-submit stop for any other filmmakers out there going around the festival circuit! Another Life had a wonderful, intimate last screening with lots of love from cast (Actress -- Bobbie Prewitt), crew (Casting Director -- Cheryl Faye), friends, and family in attendance. Thank you to everyone who showed up!

Also, I had the privilege to hang out with some very cool, gifted filmmakers at the festival, and I only hope that I get to collaborate with them in the future.

So keep an eye out for the following names in bright lights:
ALSO -- after making Finalist at the Page Awards, I've heard from TWO Managers who have read my work and want to read more! Stay tuned next week!
