  • Overworked

    Overworked Drama COLLABORATION CHALLENGE! Below is a short story I wrote, a drama-thriller called, "Overworked." Anyone interested in helping me turn it into a short film, contact me. This is what I can do in terms of collaboration: turn the story into a script; break down the script (industry-standard production breakdown); working with the director, generate a one-liner schedule; and operate as 1st AD during shooting (conditional on where and when it gets shot). Other duties will have to be filled by other collaborators.
