We are pleased to announce that the debut feature by Rooftop alumni Terence Nance has been selected to make its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival! But he needs your help to make it there.
Hi. My name is Gillian Robespierre. I’m a writer/director attending the 2011 IFP Emerging Narrative project forum with my script Obvious Child. It’s a romantic comedy with an abortion. Yes, it’s a comedy.
Rotterdam International film festival: “I am confused why your project is part of Emerging Narrative” Me: ” Its Interesting you chose to meet with me then” Rotterdam: “I didnt”
…but are trying to go in a more socially conscious direction.
We’ve had some really nice interest in the project. It sounds nice now, but that might change later on when they say, “You know what? It’s not for us.” I like to keep expectations low. That way you don’t get your hopes up. And that way they can’t come crashing down.

A few things I’ve learned over the years from going into “pitch” meetings.
Just as Kanye West arrived in Austin to play ACL, I arrived in NYC to kick some serious IFP ass. Well, I hope, anyway. We’ll see how that ass kicking goes.
The week leading up to my 7am departure tomorrow morning has been nothing but insane.
