Driving with Dale, 2020
This short screenplay explores the past and future of Dale the Taxi Driver, who was a major character in our movie "Nothing in Durham." Dale is a taxi driver who doesn't drive, and she picks up her reluctant ex-girlfriend after work and takes her on a ride to a specific location to wait for something. Unfortunately, they don't know what they are waiting for.
We are thrilled to announce that the "Driving with Dale" screenplay is an official selection of the Austin Revolution Film Festival 2020 and was nominated for Best Comedy Short Screenplay. The festival takes place in February 2022.
