Say Cheese | treatment

A lazy, unemployed hipster must work in the Alps, spending his summer with an unromantic, German, high-tech shepherd. Even though it’s the worst time of his life, he finally discovers what his purpose is.

“The jury particularly liked that there are no heroes or losers and that the protagonists develop, show weaknesses, build strengths, become capable of action. There are enough ideas here for a long feature film.”

PROJECT | 02

A Very White Christmas | screenplay 

On Christmas night, a family is reunited under strange and somewhat salacious circumstances at their family pied-à-terre in the city. Each family member arrives for reasons they are trying to hide, and they are soon forced to face one another's secrets and lies.

"The indie feel and unique take on Christmas - which gives it a good release window and superb marketing potential - will make this film attractive to many producers! Finally, casting for this film will be easily accomplished, since the characters are fun and different, with emotional depth to explore as well as juicy scenes to play. Bankable actors can be approached with confidence."

"This is a charming, entertaining, fun, and inspiring story. It's terrific to see older people as the leads. They are interesting people that will provide a good role for good actors. And the music will further add to the enjoyment."
