Bodies - a short film

I am writing and will soon be directing a short film entitled "Bodies" which is an adaptation from a short story published in The New Yorker Magazine (Sept. 30th issue). The main character is in the "wait and see" stage after 10 rounds of chemo for Stage III Hodgkin's lymphoma.

I am writing for two reasons. First, I would like to speak to those diagnosed with cancer (whether Hodgkin's or not) to make sure I depict an honest and realistic portrayal of a woman struggling with cancer. Second, I shoot this film in late March and early April, and I have a scene that takes place in an oncology waiting room and need extras, some with speaking roles. It'd be about a 1/2 day of shooting in NYC.

If you're interested in either, I would be very grateful. I can be reached at

Thank you for your time.
