Writer Statement

The Proposal is a vignette about love and loss during adolescence.

I would like to direct this project, and I am looking for a production company to produce it, or at least to help me coproduce it and provide a roof for the project. :)

I have a French version of the script as well.

I make my living as an acting coach in Paris, and I have a wide repertoire of excellent actors to choose from.

I would be delighted to talk to you about this project, or have it considered by your festival.

Thank you!
