Greetings comrade Stage32ers. I'm a screenwriter who has been on here for quite a while... and in that time have had the absolute pleasure of meeting up with RB and Amanda at film festivals... by the way, his new book is a delightful read.
Anyway, I digress. I am a work-for-hire writer who has found writing gigs on Stage32 and made several valuable connections here on Stage32. Last year I wrote and EP'd the short film, Elevator Pitch, a project initiated by Rutger Oosterhoff.
And now I am in production on a short film, Otro Lado (Other Side), which was commissioned by Stage32 member Alex Holland, who is the film's EP and composer. Today we received permission from the U.S. Border Patrol to shoot right at the fence just east of Douglas Arizona. We are rolling cameras on May 1st and 2nd.
Other Stage32 members involved: Rob Walker (director), Avai d'Amico (DP) and Lesley Lillywhite (talent, PA).
We are looking forward to sweating like crazy on the border, sharing our Stage32 savvy and hitting the festival circuit. We have a bit of a website if anyone would care to visit: www.otroladomovie.com
