(semi-finalist for Disney Touchstone Film Fellowship)
After getting rear-ended at an intersection, Louise, a detached peculiar woman, meets Whitney, a feisty 30-year-old academic. The women develop an intense, passionate relationship – one that is interrupted by the man who rear-ended Louise. He is frantic, telling Louise that the life she is living with Whitney is not real, that she is dying. Is she?
Some people believe that our lives are nothing but the dream of a god, and when that god wakes up, we cease to exist. That is the basis of Intersection which asks, is reality just the life we see?
Andrea Maxwell, who co-wrote the story with me, directed a short called “With Tarts” based on Intersection. Watch it here.
In Dipso Maniac, a man must decide whether to forgive or avenge his own death.
In 1705, a husband shoots his wife, then himself. Three hundred years later the husband is reincarnated as Joshua. Joshua lives under the watchful eye of Mr. Dipso Maniac, a soul trapped in limbo – in this case, a dingy bar.
Katie, a young, hip San Franciscan, is plagued by Dipso and a series of disturbing visions he puppets, that involve Joshua, her neighbor. Soon Katie realizes that she is being warned: Joshua is about to be killed! But is Dipso enlisting Katie to commit the murder or prevent it (and why)?
My Sassy Gal
(feature drama, complete)
Richard and Gwen have had a loving relationship for five years. Richard has even raised her baby Tulip as his own. Only problem is, Gwen left him four years ago.
Instead of Gwen and Tulip, Richard’s been loving a string of people who only look like them. He meets these people around the seedier edges of town and takes them home – convinced they are his lost family. Once home, he cooks up a needle for the woman (the way he had for Gwen) and a cup of soup for the daughter. They stay for a few months, leaving to get clean or because his off-kilter behavior becomes too dangerous. When they run away, Richard hops in his car to find them.
This time, it looks like he’s found his way back to the “real” Gwen and Tulip.
