Writer Statement

Precious Metals is the second script I've ever written, undertaken as practice for an online screenwriting competition. I was given a story in the public domain to adapt as well as a condition. The public work was The Glamour of the Snow by esteemed horror writer Algernon Blackwood, and the condition was that it had to be set in New York. Initially viewed as a challenge, I realized that I had been given a gift: the ability to take another artist's vision and re-imagine it as my own, with guidelines and resources from the source material to use along the way. A metaphor-laden surreal horror, I had a lot of fun crafting this tale, and I hope you have fun reading it.
