I’m excited to be working with a stellar team at Legacy Sounds LLC, converting my short stories, Snapshots of a Teenage Punk Diplomat, to an indie video series or film. It’s an ambitious project and there are a bazillion challenges ahead, but we believe in the story and think it will resonate with anybody who has ever struggled with being unique when the world doesn’t want you to be. We are currently developing a trailer to start raising funds for filming the pilot and first episode in the spring of 2018.
Follow us on Facebook at “snapshotsvideo” and look for a trailer video in December 2017.
Snapshots of a Teenage Punk Diplomat is a dramatic and exciting story about the power of teenage friendships, life, death, and how hard it is to be unique in a world that doesn’t always welcome non-conformity.
Set in the summer of 1984, four teenage boys from tough circumstances find their identity through a new kind of music called hip-hop. They soon learn that their suburban neighborhood isn’t quite ready for this new music and, when faced with bullying and confrontation, they need to stick together and fight to keep their unique identities.
