MAY in BC: RED SUNRISE Optioned by Galaxy Sailor Productions

Portland director, Martin Vavra, of Galaxy Sailor Productions, has optioned my first feature, RED SUNRISE OVER NORWALK. How cool! Martin’s currently part of a mentorship program through AMC to develop a pitch package and RED SUNRISE will be the focus.

I love this script, it’s probably my strongest work, and I haven’t looked at it in seven years since I was in my Master’s program in Austin, TX (yikes.) Excited to see what we can do together, (if not a little nervous to crack into rewrites again.)
