Very excited about this feature film I'm developing about a woman in the man's world of auto body repair who sued City Hall to use a brightly painted purple Mustang planted with wildflowers as part of her Auto Body Repair Shop's sign after the City cited her for being in violation of the Junk Car Ordinance. Set in Baytown, TX and based on a true story in the early 1990s, it feels like the perfect segue from Acid Test. Only it's not my story I'm telling this time. This script was selected as a Quarterfinalist for the 2021 Nicholl Fellowship, the 2022 Houston Arts Alliance Support for Artists and Creative Individuals Grant to produce a table read workshop of the script, the upcoming Stowe Story Labs Producers Lab, and was just selected as a semi-finalist for the 2023 Film Fatales Fellowship at the Stowe Story Lab. The project is currently participating in the Intentional Filmmaking Class at From the Heart Productions, who served as fiscal sponsors for my debut feature film, Acid Test.
The live table read - for audience feedback - was presented as part of the 2022 Houston Cinema Arts Festival. Read about the event and see photos HERE!
Excited to see where this project goes next and fingers crossed for the next stages of the Fellowship competition at Stowe!
