Announcing: Muscle

Fiona Graham as Amanda

Last year, I had an opportunity to create something for one of my favorite actors, Fiona Graham.

Anyone who has seen Jackrabbit or Elsewhere, NY  instantly understands just why I enjoy working with Fiona, and when she asked if I could write something for her and the director, Heidi Miami Marshall, I jumped at the chance.

Muscle is the story of Amanda (played by Fiona), a woman who discovers her husband has a terminal disease must choose whether to stay with him or go.

Whilst writing a film is the easy part, making it happen is something else entirely, and over the past year or so, that’s just what we’ve been doing.

Working alongside producer Johnny Sanchez, Fiona, Heidi and I have been busy preparing the film, working hard to bring in the very best talent on both sides of the lens. And so it was, just a couple of weeks ago, we headed to upstate New York to shoot the short film.

Joining Fiona onscreen are Marc Menchaca (Homeland, This Is Where We Live) as her husband Craig, and Reiko Aylesworth (24, Lost, Revolution, Damages, Alien vs Predator: Requiem).
