It was conceived over 10 years ago and took nearly 3 years to write, but alas, 'WHITE ELEPHANT' is ready to go!
Logline: If Vini gets dragged out to one more garage sale by her mother, she may just lose her mind. Luckily for her an old friend is back in town, and shows her there is life outside of New Jersey.
The latest draft of the film has been making its rounds, and the feedback has been wonderfully encouraging.
Berlinale Talent Project Market of 2011: Last selection round!
Slamdance, 2011 Screenplay Contest: "Very solid premise... nice moments of character. Appealing main character.."
Marsha J De Salvatore, Founder of Rome's Comedy Club: "Very witty humor... LOVED the main character. Every turn was a surprise and there was nothing predictable about the story."
Daniela Ranieri, Production Designer: "All the characters were so funny... their world was so clearly written that I could see each and every scene..."
We're currently seeking the right producer for the project and would ideally like to begin shooting in October of 2012. As a quintessential New Jersey story, it can only be shot in the mother land.

Modern and ballet tell the story of unrequited love. A very powerful piece that should have women relating and men thinking twice.
