Ruth’s reading in NYC *** Aurora is going to Madrid

Hey guys!

The craziness continues.

First and foremost, I am delighted to say that Ruth’s will be a part of the short script contest finalist reading session at the NYC Independent Film Fest. 

I’m very excited to get to be there and hear a few pages of the script being read by actors and see how the audience reacts.

If you are around NYC and wants to join us, tickets are available here.

We even got our own fancy page and everything!

This is also a friendly reminder that if you want to help us turn Ruth’s into a film, hear more about it and watch a video intro you can do it here.

It is my great pleasure to announce that Aurora, my feature script has been selected as an official selection of the Madrid International Film Festival.

I’m extremely honored to be included. The festival takes place in July. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Ruth’s video campaign and more!

Hey guys!

So our fundraising campaign for Ruth’s has been online for about a month. I wrote about the campaign in a previous update.

We just hit 10% of our goal which under the circumstances is a definite milestone!

I also added a new intro video that explains about the project in a more personal manner.

Feel free to check it out:

 

More details are on the campaign page. A friendly reminder that donations are tax-deductible because we are a non-profit. Woot!

If you have any questions feel free to contact me via the email on the contact page.

Thanks!

Ruth’s Fundraising campaign!

Hey guys!
Really excited to announce that we’re working towards the production of my short script Ruth’s.

This project holds a very special place in my heart, and while we launched our albeit very limited fundraising campaign, I think it’s time I finally tell you what the script, which has been an official selection at the Back in the Box competition and is currently nominated at the NYC Indie File Fest,  is about.

Ruth’s follows a family’s visit at the grandmother’s house on the night of the Seder. Later that night the granddaughter catches her grandma, Ruth, watching a news story about recently discovered facts of Anne Frank’s death, and confronts her about something she’d suspected for years – her grandma is Anne Frank.

The story is fictional, of course, but the news story mentioned in it is actually real and inspired the script. It’s based on the results of an official study, released by the Anne Frank House on April 2015.

Since I also get to play one of that characters in the film, I’m even more excited.

We were lucky enough to become fiscally sponsored by From the Heart Productions in LA, which makes this project a non-profit. All donations to our campaign are tax-deductible and if you donate, you become an executive producer!

This is a SAG short film, low budget. For you indie lovers, not sure it gets more indie than that!

We’re also aiming to have a crew that is as female dominated as possible, though our brilliant Director of Photography is an extremely talented guy. This is just because we know how hard it is in today’s industry for women to get good opportunities.

If you care to participate, know that any amount will help tremendously!

Check out our campaign here, on the From the Heart Productions website, in collaboration with Network for good.

I will be sure to update as we move forward!

Thank you and happy spring!

Aurora and Ruth’s at the Back in the Box Competition.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I know it’s been a crazy long time but things got absolutely insane. I know it seems like not a lot is happening but with so many things in development stages it’s that quiet in between. That said, last month I was notified that both Aurora, and Ruth’s (a feature script and a short script,  respectively) made it to the advanced stages of the Back in the Box Competition.

Ruth’s was an official selection.

Official Selection Screenplay Laurels 2015

Aurora was a finalist.

Finalist Screenplay Laurels 2015

The script was also a finalist at the Hollywood Screenplay Contest back in October 2015 in the Family Film Script category.

That’s all for now. I hope I can give you more updates about both scripts soon!

Stay warm!
