The HOOD Character Videos are now LIVE on YouTube!

OMG OMG OMG OMG! This has been quite a journey. When I joined the Quivalon team back in May, these “character idents” were just a twinkle in the HOOD creator’s eye. Now, after a Kickstarter campaign, shooting during Covid, and post-production woes, we finally got to release our creations yesterday and launch our YouTube channel.Continue reading “The HOOD Character Videos are now LIVE on YouTube!”

Welcome to the World of HOOD

In May of 2021, I was fortunate enough to join the Quivalon team to work on a multimedia project called HOOD. It’s a reimagined Robin Hood story with a female lead in an alternate present where climate change has already changed the shape of the world. We’ve been hard at work getting several facets ofContinue reading “Welcome to the World of HOOD”

Curio is a Semifinalist in the Screencraft Pilot Competition!

Huzzah! My pilot about a clandestine order of supernatural artifact hunters post-WWII has reached two new milestones. This is its first semifinalist placement (you can see a full list of semifinalists here), and the bump to my Coverfly score means that I now have two scripts on the Redlist for 1-hour adventure scripts! The factContinue reading “Curio is a Semifinalist in the Screencraft Pilot Competition!”

A Brief Rant About Pain on Screen

We all have our pet peeves when it comes to the media we consume. Mine has to do with how pain, injury, and treatment are portrayed in film and TV. For context, I am in pain most of the time. Small injuries that normal people recover from in a matter of weeks can linger forContinue reading “A Brief Rant About Pain on Screen”

Oh Snap! I’m a DOUBLE Quarterfinalist in the 2022 Screencraft TV Pilot Competition

I’m thrilled to announce that I got word last night that BOTH Curio and Riftmaker advanced in the competition. (You can find out more about them on my TV projects page) I admit I was a little worried about submitting twice to the same competition because I wondered if they would just pick one evenContinue reading “Oh Snap!

Curio is a Quarterfinalist!

This is the first time this script has competed, and I’m thrilled to announce it has advanced to the quarterfinals of the WeScreenplay TV competition! This means all four of the scripts I’ve written so far have received at least a quarterfinals placement or better. [Cue happy dance] I’ll find out about the semifinals inContinue reading “Curio is a Quarterfinalist!”

Riftmaker is a Quarterfinalist!

Woot! I haven’t had any good news to share like this since March, so feeling grateful, happy, and relieved to get this recognition for Riftmaker. This is my second pilot and the first time it’s competed. For this competition, ScreenCraft received around 2000 submissions, so the quarterfinalists are the top 500-ish. I did also enterContinue reading “Riftmaker is a Quarterfinalist!”

One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter

I don’t think anyone would be surprised to hear that spring 2020 was not a great time for me because it wasn’t a great time for pretty much anyone. I’d started my fourth novel in January, but by March I had completely lost interest in it. I wasn’t writing anything, just editing and continuing withContinue reading “One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter”

Creating the Pitch Deck for HOOD

About six weeks ago, I joined the ranks of Quivalon, a female-led, international creative collaboration that covers several different types of media. The primary focus is a gender-swapped Robin Hood retelling TV show set in a near-future dystopia where magic exists. As the production coordinator, I have my hands on many different aspects of theContinue reading “Creating the Pitch Deck for HOOD”
