June 2013: Seph attended the Great American Pitch Fest in Burbank, CA and had the chance to pitch to over 120 companies! It was an amazing, empowering experience and many of Seph's 1-sheets were left behind in interested hands!

Results of several contests should be coming in over the course of the next few months - will post the exciting news right here!

What a great festival it was this year!
Seph's two short plays made their debut - The 1st "Be Careful What You Wish For." was a 24 hr play fest creation (stay up all night, write a 10 min play, give it to the actors in the morning and they rehearse it all day and perform that night!)
The other, "It's Not Really Suicide, Is It?" - was the official selection for the festival out of 300 submissions. It's Not Really Suicide explores the impact of PTSD, war and suicide on 3 friends.

All Things Hidden (short film) An award-winning short script, All Things Hidden is about a young woman's journey to free herself from the tragic ghosts of her past.
All Things Hidden focuses on the return of Dannie Turner to her childhood home to confront the tragic ghosts of her past. Dannie's presence reawakens latent memories of a particularly fateful night; memories which have locked her in an emotional vice. She must find a way to forgive herself for events that were beyond her control.
But how does one morph out of their own emotional trap?
Oct 2011 Certificate of Excellence from SkyFest for All Things Hidden script! ATH was also a runner-up in Notes and Grace Notes inaugural short film script competition in 2008.
