During the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown, in 2021 I wrote a monologue and asked Erin to read it. We decided to work on it to entertain ourselves. She lives in LA so we worked via Zoom and eventually decided to record it. This monologue turned short film has won awards in Film Festivals around the globe. Paris International Short Festival, Arthouse of Beverly Hills, Palm Springs Shorts, Ridgefield Independent Film Festival, San Francisco Indie Short Festival, 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival-Bali, Dublin World Film Fesitval, Austin International Film Festival, London Indie Short Festival, Niagara Falls International Short Festival, Phoenix Shorts-Ottwa Canada, Rotterdam Independent Film Festival, Palm Springs Movie Awards, New Jersey Short Awards, New York International Women Festival, International Cosmopolitan Film Festival of Tokoyo, Legacy Theatre Film Festival, Rainbow: LGBT+ Film Festival.
I submitted for copyright approval of the song Erin sings in this episode before submitting to the festival circuit. I'm still waiting a response. It was a semi-finalist in the one I submitted to the San Francisco Indie Short Festival.
