My Fist Your Face takes us to CineStory and LiveRead LA

Having recently relocated to Los Angeles, it was exciting to discover our comedy pilot My Fist Your Face was selected for the CineStory TV/Digital Retreat in Idyllwild, California. We had an amazing time working with fellow writers and mentors in a gorgeous mountain setting. We thoroughly recommend applying to their screenwriting labs.

The kind folks at LiveRead LA and Australians in Film also recently selected My Fist Your Face for their April live read in front of an audience at the Charlie Chaplin Theater at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles. Thanks to the incredible cast who brought the script to life, and the audience for such invaluable feedback.

We're happy to learn that our comedy pilot Easy, Tiger has been selected for the AWG's Pathways Showcase.

Easy, Tiger is a horror/comedy and a very Tasmanian take on the werewolf myth. Here's the logline:

A journalist is faced with a hairy situation: she discovers she's part Tasmanian tiger. Now she must lead a double-life to put her town off the scent and find a cure.

The script was also recently awarded Highly Commended in the AWG / ABC Laugh Out Loud contest.
