I crafted the latest draft of BLIND PURSUIT with the help of the amazing Janet Jeffries of Lawrence Bender.
I love how my script reads now. I expect even better things to come!
Thank you, Janet!
My short screenplay TOO MUCH AIR has advanced to the next round of NYC Midnight Short Screenplay Challenge
“TOO MUCH AIR” by Debi Yazbeck
LOGLINE – Live, love, laugh — even laugh last. But always watch your back.
This was really fun to create and write. I’m excited for my next set of prompts Saturday morning.
What craziness can I devise next… hmmm?
AND NOW I HAVE MY CERTIFICATE!
From this amazing experience with Joan Darling.
Thank you, Sundance Institute

How can life get better!?
It’s not only about being accepted to Sundance’s Lab — It’s about WHO IS TEACHING!
SUNFLOWER CARE written by the fricking amazingly talented Della Greenawalt is the project I applied with and will be working on. What better way to be the best director I can possibly be to several exceptionally talented actors?!
How did I lose this?!
No matter – Max graciously sent me a new one.
Hugs and kisses to you, Max. You laid the foundation and helped me grow as a screenwriter way past anything I ever dreamed.
This certificate means so much to me and will hang on my wall of fame.
My newest screenplay makes its contest debut at LA International Screenplay Awards.
Thank you, LAISA!
I completely missed this announcement.
VOICE OF DISSENT was still titled EDDY JEAN when it made Quarter-Finalist…
BLIND PURSUIT made the list also! Yay!
I am crazzzy excited that OUT OF THE WALLS is an Official Selection at ARFF!
Because of Covid, the festival is being delayed until March 25-27, 2021.
I will be there! No way I’ll miss a live screening in Austin.
And no way I’ll miss ARFF – such a fun festival.
Please join me in shouting out to ARFF:
And the good news from April 14th…
OUT OF XATALA made the 2020 BlueCat Screenplay Competition SEMI-FINALS!
I received some of the best notes EVER from BlueCat’s script analysis.
I’m excited to be a Quarter-Finalist for BlueCat’s 2020 Screenplay Competition.
Looking forward to April 14th!
p.s. I loved KNIVES OUT!
This is just what I needed!
In eight weeks I went from complete ignorance to producing, writing and directing my own short film PRELUDE TO MURDER IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN while being mentored by Julia Solomonoff and Danielle Lessovitz.
And add to all of that… This course has set me on the correct path for directing Della Greenawalt’s award winning script SUNFLOWER CARE in May.
Thank you, SUNDANCE Collab!
