PARIS WINDOW - FEATURE FILM

I'm in a new independent feature film directed by Amanda Kramer and you're invited to our special screening on September 6 @ 7:00 PM!

PARIS WINDOW is set entirely in the apartment of infatuated adult siblings Julian and Sunny, PARIS WINDOW follows the damaging effects of a series of hypnosis informercials on the socially and emotionally stunted pair. With creeping intensity, delusional brother and sister turn on each other as Julian becomes convinced he’s the victim of a conspiracy when Sunny begins dating a man who looks exactly like him.

PARIS WINDOW is a hypnogogic psychological thriller blending the single set claustrophobia of Polanski’s REPULSION with the doppelgänger obsession of Dostoyevsky’s THE DOUBLE and the hallucinatory paranoia of Cronenberg’s VIDEODROME.

Directed by Amanda Kramer, starring Noel David Taylor and Sophie Kargman, co-starring Anna Cordell and Gina Piersanti, scored by Ben Babbitt, shot in Chinatown, Los Angeles.

24-HOUR PLAY FESTIVAL @ COMPANY OF ANGELS

Please come out and support my fellow artists as they create several new one-act plays in just 24-hours! Insane you say? Yes! And so much fun! Watch this exhilarating work at the Company of Angels' new theater space on Saturday, June 17th.

The Company of Angels (CoA) is Los Angeles' oldest non-profit repertory company and an award- winning theater that focuses on creating works for the residents of Los Angeles. Last year, I performed in CoA's annual short play festival, "LA VIEWS: Criminal Eyes," that provided an opportunity for Los Angeles based playwrights to be inspired by and write about Los Angeles. Here's a short interview I did with the Artistic Directors, Armando Molina and Lui Sanchez in 2016 about our show.

Meet the Artistic Directors of the Company of Angeles and learn more about their award winning theater company.
