It began with a low budget "impossible to produce" film, Rockers, which was invited to screen at Cannes that year, 1978. In the 80's came more independent films made in New York and Los Angeles. Early success was rewarded with bigger films, notably Species and Jurassic Park 3. The latest, Interior Night, has been an official selection at more than 11 festivals, with five "best of" awards and is currently available on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, Hulu, and more.
As a film producer with experience in digital and multimedia - including motion pictures, video and internet - I supply the know how and expertise to transfer the stories of the heart and mind to the screen.
"Interior Night is a complex, provocative film."
