Sometimes broken isn't the end...it's just the beginning.
Last year Gloria Steinem connected me with Marta Kauffman,(Co-creator of FRIENDS). Last week i met with her and we are now in development on the screenplay! While this incredible opportunity doesn't come with a paycheck, it means I am collaborating with and being guided by an extraordinary seasoned producer (who happens to be an amazing human being) and she is the perfect fit for me and this project.
I humbly ask for your assistance as I hang out in the deep end of this adventure...i must raise this year's option by October 1st.
Awards/Events for 'Broken For You':
Currently under consideration for the Sundance Writer's Lab (draft 4)
- First Glance Contest Semi-finalist (draft 3)
- Austin Film Festival Quarter-finalist (draft 2)
- L.A. Int'l Contest - Honorable mention (draft 1)
- 2 separate Fellowships at Hedgebrook Writer's Retreat
- The FilmSchool hosted a sold-out staged reading at ACT theater
The story of the project:I was approached by Amy Wheeler, the Executive Director of Hedgebrook Women Writers Retreat, who asked me to read a national best-selling novel called BROKEN FOR YOU because she felt I was the right person to adapt it. I read it and was hooked...it’s a deep and funny story and I can’t wait to bring it to the screen.
About me: I’m an award-winning screenwriter with a successful track record. So far I’ve optioned an original screenplay and have been hired to write several others. I’ve also produced 2 feature length films and several shorts all of which have been award-winning and most of which received distribution.
Thanks in advance for your generosity of spirit! Lots of love, Lisa
