Particularly Interested In: 

I'm mainly focused right-now on feature projects with interesting characters at the heart of twisty stories, but open to really anything as long as it's compelling.

Pitch Tips

Concept first. I want you to hook me in with your premise; everything else should follow from there if I can buy into the world that you're selling me.
