My experience has been 15y as a freelance writer/poet, 7y acting, and 3y producing. I produced three films in the Chicago indie film arena. One short film won 2nd place Chicago Independent Film and Video award. I also co-wrote and associate produced, REAL FUNNY, a drama with director/producer Andy Guschwan. I co-executive produced a historical drama, AN IRON CHAIN with Isabelle Films. In the end, I found writing the story the most rewarding job and it’s where I have focused all my energies the last two years. I'm now working on my third feature length film.

  • A review of Hostage Situation

    Striking intro credits in black and white which made me hope that the film might continue along that way. The film shows some interesting angels and use of light. Great thugs. The main protag seemed too nonchallant and laid back soncidering the situation. Later when the masks are off, it seems apparent why he didn't act believable. After the "fake" violence which... read

    CONGRATS! on a hiliarious comedy with a buddy-feel (and yet NOT) to it. I LOVED the intro visual with the tear-sheet - with the phone numbers plus the optimistic whistle that plays throughout the the film. Great job showing the protag being overwhelmed and the antag overwhelming. Fantastic, rapid-fire humorous, realistic, outrageous dialogue. Overall the actors were... read
  • A review of Out of Mind

    FANTASTIC CINNEMATOGRAPHY! Great use of black and white film, the stark visuals combined with the natural ambient noise, offset by the screaming prisoner. The soundtrack does a fabulous job adding to the tension/horror. Interesting camera affects and visuals. The only area I could say needs work is MORE STORY. More of an idea...WHO is out of their mind? Exploring... read

    I have rewritten a few pages of my story "The Tea Party" and I wondered if you would be interested in re-reading them? Let me know if I am going in the right direction? I hope to have the story finally finished (well it will never really be finished)soon and ready to upload.

    I would appreciate your feedback.

    Hi Lisabelle.
    Since I have the most boring part time job imaginable, I am now able to put more time into catching up with the writing. I am actively working on The Tea Party. Whereas I am using a great deal of your thoughts/ideas, I am having one hell of a time with the ending (it seems to bother a great many reviewers) but to be honest I have no idea as to where to take it so it stays a short and I dont have to add pages and pages. I would be very appreciative if you had any idea where you would have liked to have seen this go. I am staring at a blank page where the ending should be. I dont want to 'steal' and idea from you, but I would appreciate any input!

    I do want to be able to put this out there in a wider scope (and maybe sell it!).

    Thanks again for your help.

    Thanks for catching up with me. No I havent had time for the rewrite, but I really want to get back to it. I have been working (actually a collaboration) on my first screenplay and that takes up a bunch of my brain. Like I said I will be reworking it soon, as it was my first, it is like a child to me and I want it to be really good.

    Thanks again, I am most appreciative
