Australian writer-director Lisa Robertson has signed with Daniel Pancotto and Jon Kanak of Magnet Management. Most recently, she completed her short film COMMERCE, which has the potential to become a feature-length film, with a draft already written.
Robertson won the Adrienne Shelly Foundation grant for Commerce at its DGA premiere to support the film becoming a feature. It followed that up by winning numerous awards on the festival circuit, including becoming one of eight narrative features for FAST TRACK at Los Angeles Film festival; qualifying for Academy Award consideration; and became a Top 40 All-Time Bestselling Drama short on iTunes.
The short stars Joel Gretsch, Annabeth Gish, and Noel Fisher. You can watch it here on Vimeo (password: COMMguest36).
