In June, my short (and dark) piece “Fishing For Men” was performed in the annual Gone in 60 Seconds Festival of one-minute plays in New York. (You can find performance photos here.)

Producer Rose Bonczek asked if it would be OK if she had the piece turned into a short film to enter in the MSN/New York Television Festival Short Form Storytellers Challenge.

Naturally, I said “yes.”

Here’s the result. Well, sort of. I haven’t seen the actual video yet, but Rose shares these photos from the shooting:
