Semi Finalist for DreamAgo Ruffieux residency

The WGA-West together with DreamAgo had put out a call to apply for a six-weeks residency in a beautiful Swiss castle. My screenplay in development TURKISH DELIGHT was selected as a semi finalist. Which meant that I got to meet with the DreamAgo team at the residence of the consul general of Switzerland in Los Angeles and pitch my project to them. Every pitch is always a challenge – because of the nerves 😉 – but it was also great fun, and TURKISH DELIGHT received very positive feedback. At the luncheon the next day at the consul’s residence the two (!) winning projects were announced. Of course, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to go to Switzerland. But it was a great pleasure and honor for me to be part of the pitching, and to learn about the wonderful work DramAgo does with and for writers. And I look forward to collaborating with them in the future.
