The campaign to fund our short film, Freefall, is finally underway. And to make things even more exciting, we received 20% of our funding on the first day! Here’s hoping we meet our goal and can incorporate all of the wonderful elements we have planned. If you’re interested in checking out the link, please go here:
On Friday, we completed the filming for our Indiegogo pitch video for Freefall, a short film adaptation of my short story, “Fay,” set to shoot this summer. I’m super excited about the amazing cast and crew that have agreed to work on this project. If Friday’s shoot was any indication, the film is going to rock. Stay tuned for the Indiegogo campaign launch!
Cinequest knows how to throw a good party! After a daylong celebration that included a pitch session, a screening of Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns,” a writers VIP lunch, and writers pitching their stories in front of a sold-out crowd during the Maverick Spirit Award event honoring Neil Gaiman, I walked away with the Audience Pitch Award! I’m so grateful for the goodwill the audience showed me and my animation feature, Sheila the Gila Monster. It was a great day for all of the writers!
Good news! My feature animation screenplay, Sheila the Gila Monster, will be a part of the Writers Celebration Day at the Cinequest Film Festival, when they will give the Maverick Spirit Award to Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline. Come and join us on March 9th at 1:30 PM!

Check out my interview with the always gracious Evan Karp over at SF Weekly:
One of my screenplays, Queenpin, co-written with Vonti R. McRae, recently won the Urban Action Showcase screenwriting award.
Now if we can just get HBO to cast Idris Elba in the lead male role, we’ll be in urban drama heaven.
