Sunday Movie: “The Alderson Murder”


I have a really exciting “dream project” currently in the works. It’s a short film called “The Alderson Murder” based on the short story by Gonzalo Reidel (you can purchase the whole collection of stories here).

I first encountered Reidel’s stories on the shelf at Geist Magazine. That night, in bed, I read the whole collection out-loud to my husband/cinematographer (Dale Shippam). Later Geist published my review of the collection in their ‘Endnotes’ column (you can read it for free at and I began the slow process of writing, directing and producing a film in the spare bits of time in between working toward my PhD and working to pay for my PhD, which left me with mostly Sundays (because who needs rest?).

Now, after 144 Sundays (48 Sundays per year for 3 years), we’re due for a rough cut from the editor any day now and the film is one more Sunday closer to completion.

Stay tuned!
