Those Beneath (TV Pilot) & Los Angeles International Screenplay Awards

        I hadn’t entered a contest in a while, had never entered LAISA, but I felt my TV pilot, Those Beneath, could be a really good fit.

And look at this line-up of judges:

They sent me a one of the best set of scripts notes ever (I highly recommend).

Those Beneath is a quarter-finalist, top 10%.

Next announcement next week.

Saltwater Underway

What an incredible cast and crew! We filmed the second half of my short drama, Saltwater, yesterday on location in Frisco, Texas.

And then we had one of the actors, Larry Lobster, for dinner.LobsterThe other actors, Rebecca Moore and Jesse Grider, were spared the boiling water. They’re needed for the next and final day of filming.

Matthew DeLeon directed the cast and crew with a quiet finesse that I predict will make him a big name someday. Thank you, Matthew.

Also…

My feature, Blind Pursuit, came in as a finalist in the 2016 Screenplay Festival under the Movie Script – Thriller/Horror category!

And a great honor to receive Best Feature Screenplay at the 2016 California Women’s Film Festival.

None of this would have happened without Max Adams and the Academy of Film Writing. Max rocks as a teacher and a mentor!

And I had my own fan club there!

Ken Harter, my always supportive husband, Aaron Harter – his son and Catie Blalock – Aaron’s girlfriend. And fellow screenwriter, Mike Cregan.
