About Alan

I'm an award-winning screenwriter who loves to weave neo-realism and humanism into inspiring and engaging stories. I like to spend my time writing stories with the potential to make for a better world by creating an honest and trusting relationship with the audience. You won't know where the story is going, but you know you'll get there safely. I like this approach, and I'm sticking with it.

My first script "Bird of Paradise" was a quarter-finalist in Scriptapalooza and the Page International Screenplay Competitions. My second, "Gigantic" has recently won a number of awards and is now in development.

I was the editor for a feature film by Rob Nilsson, the Director of Photography for a documentary on Argentine Tango, and have made two short cinema verité films.

Currently, I'm developing a highly marketable science-fiction animated series with an extremely talented Art Director, and have a third Dramedy in the early stages of development. That said, I'd love to hear from you whether it's for an idea you'd like to explore, or as a successful or yet to succeed colleague looking to network in the vast and rugged frontier of filmmaking.

Unique traits: I love independent films with a big impact.
