Using visual storytelling, Alan brought to life characters in such feature animated films as 'Arthur Christmas' and 'Tangled' and 'Rocket' in 'Avengers: Infinity War'.

Writer Biography - Mark Lund
Mark Lund is an award-winning filmmaker and magazine publisher. He is also a TV personality. From 1993-2004 Lund founded and operated International Figure Skating magazine building it into the world's largest magazine for the sport. As a TV personality, Lund starred on FOX's Skating with Celebrities and has served as a TV analyst for the sport of figure skating since 1994, most notably for CNN during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

Lund's first screenplay, First World, a science fiction drama, was nominated for three screenplay awards and later condensed to a short film version that screened in several countries. He is the author of Frozen Assets and First World: Covenant. Lund wrote Justice Is Mind in 2010 and produced a short film version, Evidence, in 2011 that led to the financing of the feature film. Justice Is Mind had its world premiere in 2013 with a limited theatrical run along with screenings at law schools and science fiction conventions around the world. Justice Is Mind's international premiere was on Cunard Line's Queen Elizabeth in 2014.

It’s hard to believe where the time goes. While it sometimes seems like we filmed First Signal this past summer, it was actually two summers ago with the film being released this past March. With m…

How I Failed The Bechdel Test. Official Trailer

How I Failed the Bechdel Test.

Directed by

Stars
Lexa GluckDavid HartstoneAngelique Sabrina White

Brandee and Cara are two deadly assassins on a righteous mission to rectify a grievous injustice. On the way to their mark, this dynamic duo get locked into a Tarantinoesque debate over the pros and pitfalls of the Bechdel Test.

Director Biography - David Hartstone

David Hartstone is a Co-Founder of Seventh House Productions. After studying acting at the Stella Adler Studio in NYC, David moved to LA to pursue a career in film and television. He has since worked
as an actor, talent agent, writer, producer, as well as several jobs in the cannabis industry (and one very confusing week as a dental
assistant).

He has since made several short films and hopes to graduate on to features in the very near future.

Director Statement
'How I Failed the Bechdel Test.' began as an artistic exercise for my partner and I to sharpen our respective skills as a filmmaker/actress duo.

We knew we didn’t have the money for locations or fancy gear, so I set about creating a piece to shoot guerrilla style in my apartment building that would be almost entirely dependent on dialogue.

I had been aware of the Bechdel Test for some time, and fell in love with the idea of watching two women pass the Bechdel test by…discussing the Bechdel test.

As the script developed, this “meta-comedy” become more personal through the poignant discussions I had with other female creatives. Not only about the test itself, but about ME, as a man, writing this movie.

It was never my intention to actually pass a final verdict on the merits of the Bechdel Test, but instead to look at the responsibility we have as artists to not only drive the plot forward but to treat our characters with the respect and dignity they deserve.

I hope audiences come away from this film KNOWING that our world is populated by “mighty rare, complex, three dimensional female characters” and we shouldn’t accept anything less.

CONJOINED: A Holocaust Haunting...One Man, Two Hearts and Me.
HOW CAN ONE PERSON LIVE INSIDE ANOTHER? Conjoined illuminates this mystery. Holocaust survivor Arie Kaplan concealed his identity, immigrated to Chicago, married, and raised three children. When his daughter Karen grew dissatisfied with Orthodox Judaism and her marriage, she consulted a medium and received surprising messages to support emotional healing

Writer Biography - Karen L Kaplan
Karen Kaplan was born and raised in West Rogers Park, a Jewish neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. After publishing her first memoir, Descendants of Rajgròd: Learning To Forgive, Karen has been engaging audiences worldwide. She continues to share her compelling life story and the message of forgiveness. After receiving a B.A. from the University of Illinois in Nutrition and Medical Dietetics Karen trained at The Claret Center of Hyde Park, IL as a spiritual director. Articles, excerpts, and news stories of Karen’s first book have been featured on WGN-TV Chicago morning news, on Bialystok TV news, German, and local cable and radio shows, The New Yorker, The Bronx Times, The Chicago Jewish News, Chicago JUF News, The Skokie Review, Deerfield Review, the Highland Park Highlander, and Highland Park Landmark. Karen has developed a feature-length screenplay based on her memoir that was selected for The Hemingway Award at the Los Angeles Live Film Festival 2021. Her latest book, Conjoined: One Man, Two Hearts, and Me has just been released August 1, 2021.

Writer Statement
Stories of the Holocaust abound, but the one I experienced and wrote might be groundbreaking in the genre of Holocaust, paranormal, horror and biography.
Belief in the paranormal world is rising—but so is the need for stories that contain healing that arrives in unusual formats. Conjoined is like no other Holocaust nonfiction.

From NPR's "The Pulse" On-Set Therapy For a lot of writers, actors, and directors embodying someone else can take a toll on your psyche. Dr. Barton Goldsmith talks about his work as an on-set film therapist, and how it can lead to a more productive movie making experience.

I cant wait for FILM FEST LA 2019
What are the award categories? Hope you have another year of wonderful successes and fabulous films 🎥👏
I found the trailer for this new movie called Solis that looks really enticing, if you're looking for some science fiction this might be the movie for you. It follows an asteroid miner who finds himself trapped on an escape pod that is rocketing towards the sun. I'm excited to check this movie out on the 26th, the trailer gives me big time 2001: A Space Odyssey vibes:
ok, i like, i like, i like it!
Hey, family and friends our screenplay was selected in the LA Film Fest 2018 in Los Angeles, Ca. Check out our home page, www.dchomegrown.com. The date is Nov 10th. We will truly represent DC!
Give #HuntingEmma a watch. It is South African survival-thriller that thoroughly impressed me with its excellent control of tension which inevitably led to many gritty action scenes. If you have any room at your festival I suggest contacting the filmmakers.
Thank you for choosing my scripts to compete in Film Fest L.A.: "Midnight on 6th Street," "Wicked Willows," "The Web," & "Dear Tom Hardy: i love you." I am very honored by the Love you have shown to my words. ♥️
