50 SHADES OF CUTLERY
"50 SHADES OF CUTLERY - A Punitive Guide To Table Manners" is a comedy/horror 9 minute 40 second short based on the premise that a waitress's thoughts could become powerful enough to psychically punish ill mannered guests.
This, my first video project, won THE DIAMOND AWARD (First Place) in the LOS ANGELES HORROR COMPETITION. It was presented at the BRIGHTSIDE FILM FESTIVAL and was SEMIFINALIST with the INTERNATIONAL NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL.
My second film short, DEJA GOO, is a comedy shot on Zoom. It is currently an Official Selection in: THE DEPTH OF FIELD INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (MERIT AWARD Winner), THE MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL, WRPN WOMEN'S INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (MERIT AWARD), and PANDEMIC FILM FESTIVAL.
My screenplay short, THE PRETTY ORANGE DRESS is a QUARTER FINALIST in THE FRESH VOICES SCREENPLAY COMPETITION, a SEMIFINALIST in THE OUTSTANDING SCREENPLAY SHORTS COMPETITION and a FINALIST in CINEMASTREET WOMAN'S SHORT SCREENPLAY COMPETITION. My other short screenplay, REPLAY, was a SEMIFINALIST in the MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL COMPETITION.
THE PRETTY ORANGE DRESS is also available as a one-act stage play.
I've written two feature length screenplays:
MORE THINGS IN HEAVEN AND EARTH THAN ARE DREAMT OF - This is coming of age love story with a supernatural twist. In the early 1940s a young girl is sent to a Catholic boarding school where she finds love with an Italian boy from a neighboring farm - only to be disrupted by a troubled nun.
MORE THINGS IN HEAVEN AND EARTH is a SEMIFINALIST in the TABLE READ MY SCREENPLAY COMPETITION and a QUARTER FINALIST in the OUTSTANDING SCREENPLAY FEATURE COMPETITION.
My second feature is PURGATORY on which my book is based.
