My original screenplay Equity has been awarded a Silver Remi for Best Dramatic Screenplay at the 2008 WorldFest Houston International Film Festival.
I realized a long time ago that choosing a personal favorite from among my screenplays is like choosing which of your children you like best. Equity was the first script I seriously attempted to finish, and it had the longest and most convoluted gestation (during which time I set it aside to finish two other works).
So, even though people whose judgment I trust say I’ve written at least one better script, I freely admit that Equity has a special place in my heart.
