EMERGING PLATFORMS

CHARACTER STORYWORLDS

Recording Mattel's talking toys, promos, trailers and product demos might mean writing, script supervision -- even doubling for Barbie on a DVD scratch track.

Synergy-driven online activities, like this theme party and team- produced video marking the studio release of Winnie the Pooh, extend screen franchises into the home.

 

Creating this entire "For Grown-Ups" launch site calls for innovating hundreds of co-view experiences and at-home ideas celebrating on-screen characters and stories.

Streaming video alongside related copy, "Bringing the Magic Home" advances stories like Belle, Nemo and Peter Pan into the hands of brand-friendly Disney moms.

As a struggling Hollywood screenwriter with a devoted blog following tracking my long, steep uphill climb, I refused to ever give up the dream.


Nowadays, as an executive, lecturer and passionate mentor of too often unheard voices, I cultivate like-minded creatives bent on bringing their own big screen finishes against all odds.

An artist, collector and amateur ballroom dancer, I'm restoring a 1929 craftsman bungalow. Whether perfecting my Viennese waltz or scouring backroads barns and hobby farms for lost treasure, I find art in every tarnished mirror.
