Give up your attempts to find God; go on creating what you like; you are an artist, paint picture after picture. - Nandalal Bose
I have been hired to write and punch up feature-length thrillers, dramas, and comedies, and have provided coverage for several hundred screenplays, including works by an Academy Award nominee, a Prime Time Emmy nominee, an adaptation of a best-selling novel, and winners of leading contests.
I served as story consultant for Delhi in a Day, a feature-length drama directed by Prashant Nair that is currently screening throughout India at PVR Cinemas. (The cast includes Victor Banerjee, so now I can say I'm only two degrees removed from both Satyajit Ray AND Roman Polanski. Whoopdeedoo!)
I was cowriter and co-producer of Rhyme Animal, a hip hop-themed horror created by Jorge Rivera, directed by Phil Roc, and starring Craig "muMs" Grant (Poet in the HBO Series "Oz"), Al Thompson ("The Royal Tenenbaums"), and Bridget Barkan ("SherryBaby").
With longtime collaborator Aaron F. Schnore, I cowrote Starla, a feature-length drama/thriller directed by Rik Cordero, which premiered in New York City June 2011.
My feature-length supernatural thriller Sea of Trees (with Aaron F. Schnore), won grand prize of the Writer's Network Competition sponsored by Fade In: Magazine.
My feature-length biopic Manteca (also with Schnore) was selected for the inaugural Tribeca Film Festival All Access Program, and was a Sundance Writer's Lab and Project Greenlight finalist.
In 2010, I provided rewrites/polishes on the feature-length horror All God's Creatures.
I directed The Kaidan Suite, a filmed recreation of the ancient Japanese practice of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai (Gathering of 100 Ghostly Tales), in which ghost stories were told by diminishing candlelight. The Kaidan Suite artfully combines music, theatrical performance, and interactive stagecraft to transport viewers into the world of the supernatural.
