    JUDGE'S FEEDBACK

    "ABOUT CHASE is an engrossing drama that is dynamic, well-paced, and replete with emotional complexity. The characters all have fully-formed personalities, contradictory in the way humans always are without ever sacrificing their inherent core; they seem to live and breathe. And most impressively, in a film that focuses almost exclusively on a love triangle, there is no overt villain—only traumatized people with understandable positions, all trying to do their best with the hands they have been dealt. Their painful situation is handled with compassion and nuance."

    IT'S A WOMAN'S WORLD

    My leading ladies are in it to win it, and

    when they venture out, they're on their own to solve whatever life throws their way. Some will go to hell and back to get what they want, and others will die trying. My stories are emotional, messy, suspenseful... my subjects can be controversial, and my lead characters unpredictable.

     

    It's her story. We're just along for the ride.

     

    Best you buckle up.
