Upcoming Script:
October 21 - Behave, written by Bodine Boling.
Logline: Becca fears she's lost her mind when she wakes up with a hangover and parts of her life radically changed-like how she's now married to a man she dated once, a year earlier. What first seems like her worst decision remade turns out to be the theft of a parallel life, and Becca must fight not to lose her love a second time.

Bodine Boling is a Brooklyn-based writer and filmmaker. She wrote, produced, acted in and edited the science fiction feature MOVEMENT AND LOCATION. Festival awards include best narrative feature, best screenplay, best actress, best original score, and two audience awards.

First Draft is part of SIFF Education's Catalyst program. Catalyst is designed to support filmmakers, both artistically and professionally, as they progress from one stage of their careers to the next. Catalyst First Draft offers audience members a glimpse into a developmental stage of the creative process, in which a screenplay is prepped for eventual production via a live table read performed by professional Seattle actors. Audience members, guided by industry professionals, then have the opportunity to offer immediate and constructive feedback.
