I am a columnist at Script Magazine with "Legally Speaking, It Depends..." a series of articles that cover the legal and business aspects of screenwriting and independent filmmaking. There I answer the more common questions I tend to get as an entertainment attorney representing a lot of independent filmmakers as well as writers selling their wares to Hollywood. I also produce, write and direct my own work and write feature screenplays to market.

Film by Christopher Schiller (Short and Drama) Producer A lone woman sets out to become a writer. Beset by self doubts made poignant by her neighbor's incessant typing, his sudden silence draws her in to find fate has written an important role for her. Is she The Writer? The production of The Writer was conceived as an experiment in the auteur theory of film to test whether a solitary, creative vision truly can drive an entire project. All of the pre-production, production and post-production tasks aside from the acting were performed by one person. The experiment provided many revelations about just how much any creative endeavor thrives on the collaborative process. Whether the experiment has succeeded is left to the judgment of the audience.
