“The Elevator Series” explores the hopes and dreams of 6 people as they deal with issues of race, bigotry, homophobia, spirituality and self worth. Self- realizations are made, beliefs are confronted, and hope is lost and found.

We’ve just begun entering our second Elevator story THE UNTIMELY CONCURRENCE into festivals. I’m grateful for the awards that the film has already begun to receive:

*WINNER/AOF Excellence in Writing

We’ve one part left of the Elevator Series to shoot entitled ONE MOMENT PLEASE, and although this story will not take place in an elevator, it will connect and complete the feature film.
ONE MOMENT PLEASE is the story of Trina, an overweight yet hopeful elevator switchboard operator who works from home. As she struggles to complete a day of “healthy” eating, she is harassed by her boss Gunther, stressed out by her sister and talked down to by trapped elevator occupants.
We’re so excited to begin production on the last part of the series and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Love and light!
