Amy Flies In August!

11698653_858553717532638_5277091766431323096_nI firmly believe that being an interesting writer means living an interesting life.  So I’m announcing one of my hobbies – studying aerial arts at Womack And Bowman.

I’ve been taking aerial classes since 2011, and Womack & Bowman is where I feel most at home. Believe me, I have no business hauling my happy inflexible butt around in the air, but Brett Womack and Rachel Bowman have been nothing but supportive and encouraging.

They’ve been holding recitals showcasing their students’ work for a year now, and this is the first time I’m participating. So if you’d like to see what a complete non-pro can do (and it’s not too shabby) come check out the shows on August 29th.

You can get tickets here, which include admission, snacks and drinks.

It will be a fun fun night!

Becky & Kate: One Minute At A Time Starts Filming!

Hi there!

IMG_5729October’s gonna be a busy month, as we’ve started production on my first webseries: BECKY & KATE: ONE MINUTE AT A TIME.

It’s about best friends Becky & Kate. Kate followed her boyfriend to L.A., and the dude promptly dumped her for a proverbial “L.A. Woman.”

Now Becky is trying to cheer up Kate by showing her how awesome L.A. can be, while Kate ponders whether she should turn herself into an L.A. Woman, and what does that really look like?

IMG_5732There’s six episodes, and the goal is to have each episode be one minute long.

I wrote all the episodes, and am directing 2 of them, as you can tell by the totally cliche, yet totally necessary Look, Mom, I’m Directing! Shot here ===========================>

A lot of talented people are on this ride with me, and you should check out their pages below:

Stay tuned! 🙂

The Other Side Of The Desk – Screenings in New York and Michigan

Hey everybody!

othersideofthedesk2 Another short film I wrote, “The Other Side Of The Desk,” about 2 sadistic HR recruiters turning a series of job interviews into a nightmare for applicants, until they get a taste of their own medicine, has been accepted into two film festivals in August.

First up is the Trinity International Film Festival in Detroit, Michigan August 1-2, 2014.

Then on to the Village of Brewster film festival in the same named town in New York – August 29-31, 2014.

Othersideofthedesk1 I had a great time making the film with a very talented group of actors and crew, who you can check out here on our IMBD page.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DESK. They have the power, they’re not afraid to abuse it.

Best Idea Ever – Dam Short Film Festival – Saturday, Feb. 15th, 2014

Hey everyone!

A short film I wrote, called Best Idea Ever, has made it into its first film festival, the Damn Short Film Festival in Boulder City (near Las Vegas), Nevada.

We screen Saturday, Feb. 15th, in the Nevada Filmmakers section (our amazing director, April Holladay, is from there)

Logline: Shelley’s got the best idea ever: using her boyfriend Dean’s penchant for sleepwalking to plant subliminal suggestions about how to improve their relationship. But when Dean reveals more than she was expecting, can both of them wake up to reality?

It’s fun, it’s short, and some really great people worked on it. If you’re in the area, come check it out!
