A big thank you to everyone who joined me for the WOLF STAGED READING at the New Mexico Film Foundation’s George RR Martin Award Ceremony on January 10, 2017 at the Jean Cocteau in Santa Fe, New Mexico. WOLF is a winner of the George RR Martin Science Fiction/Fantasy Screenwriter Grant. The performance featured an all-star cast including Forrest Goodluck, Khaliya Kimberlie, Georgina Lightning, Rosalia Triana, MorningStar Angeline, Dino Kelly, Jenny Gabrielle, Ryan Begay, Loren Anthony, Bo Gray, Christian Araque, and Matthew Rand. Thank you to George RR Martin and The New Mexico Film Foundation for their support. I am so grateful!

The George RR Martin Award Ceremony was also a joint fundraiser for the New Mexico Film Foundation and New Mexico Girls Make Movies, a new grant program where New Mexico girls and young women, ages 12-25, submit their short screenplays, poems, comics and more for the chance to turn their story into a short film with the support of a professional crew. A big thank you to Dirk Norris of the New Mexico Film Foundation and Gene Mederos of New Mexico Film Resource for their support of this new program.

With recent changes to the U.S. environmental policy, we need to support the Mexican Gray Wolf now more than ever. With fewer than 100 animals left in the wild, the Mexican Gray will not survive without your action. To support of this endangered animal, visit Wild Earth Guardians.

Great news! Both Lobster and Baby Monitor found global distribution through the Spiritual Cinema Circle, a subsidiary of Vivendi. The aim of the Spiritual Cinema Circle is to get short films and features that have a motivational, spiritual, and uplifting message to a greater audience.  I am grateful to Anna Darrah, Suzanna Otting, and Stephen Simon, whose vision created a home for both of my shorts.
