Writing for Screen
Some of my screenwriting.
Political Science-Fiction Feature (Excerpt.) Two-hundred years in our future, affluent people are implanted at birth with a neurological device that connects to the Internet, while those in poverty remain segregated and unconnected. When Lia Powell, a corporate-executive single-mother living in the city of Shuntian, discovers a normal man with a powerful biological gift, she needs to help him learn to control it before others get to control it for him.
The Dressmaker (Excerpt)
First 17 pages of a biopic about Brian Epstein, manager of the Beatles.
Birth At The Gates (based on “A Rainbow in the Clouds” by Noah Kaplinsky.)
Treatment for a miniseries based on the story of my grandparents’ four-year separation during the World War II, and their unlikely survival and reunion.
An urban drama. In the City of Brotherly Love, a Russian-American violinist with a dark past tries to overcome addiction, while a passionate drug counselor struggles with her own demons. First 6 pages.
Hour Long dramedy. It’s Grey’s Anatomy-meets-Fame, set at the greatest acting school in the world. First 9 pages.
Short film. A combat photographer tries to exorcise her demons with what’s supposed to be a fun day climbing frozen waterfalls.
Chemo Dreams – An Inner-Dialogue

This Is a Page Turner
A silly little short film, in which the trials and tribulations of being a page-turner for a hotheaded pianist are revealed. Also (loosely) based on true events.
