Your upcoming movie Then What Happens - in a few words, what's it going to be about?


The storyline is about an Israeli up-and-coming dancer who loses her ability to dance. We meet her after the fact. She canít go back to how things were, but is not ready to ďmove onĒ either, so she finds herself in Brooklyn with the goal of buying herself time. We join her during that period, where she gets to explore who she is without her story, without her circumstances.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing Then What Happens? And is any of the film autobiographical, actually?


Human connection, films and music, places and time... struggles and pain. This is a story about being brave enough to let go before you can see the other side. Iíve lived through such an experience, as Iím sure we all do at different intersections in our lives. Life is a strange thing. It seems that you need to learn to let many parts of you die, before you trust that circumstances can never rob you of who you essentially are. And sometimes itís a good conversation and even mentorship. In the process of writing the script, Ido Angel, an amazing Israeli writer who I hope youíll get to be able to read some day, gave me valuable feedback that helped me concentrate on whatís important and let go of caging preconceptions about writing. Itís not an exchange of knowledge or skills, but when something is said in a certain way at a certain time, it can change everything in a second. And thereís no end to this process, of course.


From what I know, your film will put an emphasis on dancing and Origami folding - why these forms of artistic expression, and how do you go about bringing them to the screen?


Mia's choice of Origami is random. It doesnít mean anything to her and doesnít exist in her world of values as dance did, for example, and thatís why it appeals to her. But whatís interesting and subtle about Origami is that the model you see Ė as complex as it might be Ė is not the truth or the core of the object; itís just one of many possible expressions of that piece of paper, just as being a dancer is of that woman. Particularly in Origami, you rarely cut or glue or manipulate the paper in any way Ė you take its basic features as a given and work with them. When it comes to people, itís harder to respect that boundary.


You'll also appear in front of the camera in Then What Happens, right? So what can you tell us about your character, what will you draw upon to bring her to life, and have you written her with yourself in mind?


Yes. I write characters that I want to play. Inevitably Mia and I have a lot in common. The main element is a very turbulent inner life within a seemingly peaceful exterior. Itís not so much that I wrote ďherĒ with myself in mind; itís that I used myself, my worldview, my sensitivities, and allowed them to be expressed through another personality and different circumstances.


What can you tell us about the rest of your projected key cast and crew, and why exactly these people?


I am grateful for having very talented people on board already. They include:

Stacey Maltin, producer: She is also talented writer and actress, and just recently wrapped her feature Landing Up, directed by Dani Tenenbaum.

Steven Latta, cinematographer: I met him through NY-based French filmmaker Estelle Artus, and immediately fell in love with his eye, attention to detail and understanding of text.

Lucas Rainey, castmember: Weíve worked together before in front of the camera, and his fluidity and craft blew me away. I wrote one of the characters with him in mind.

Michi Kanno, castmember: We met at Taroís Origami in Park Slope, where I hung out quite a lot over the past two years as part of my research. She is an Origami instructor, and I offered her the same role in my film. She was perfect for it.

Justin West, music: I came across his work in mysterious ways (one of the roles in the film has the same name), and adored his music. He agreed to collaborate and allow me to use his song Cold Coffee in the film.


You are still running a fundraiser for Then What Happens, right? So what can you tell us about your campaign?


Yes! The fundraising page -
- is on IndieGoGo and will run through mid October. What we raise will enable us to shoot the film, as planned, this December. Pre-production is already underway, and we are looking forward to making it. What I enjoy about the campaign and the way itís set is that I get to offer meaningful perks to supporters and to keep in touch with them through the process. So itís not just about raising funds; itís about building a community of people who care about and share similar passions.
