screenplay“I write a ton and then I’ll cut a bunch of it out. I’ll write like seven lines where there needs to be one and just cut around that one right line and keep going.

— Julia Hart [GITS interview, February 22, 2013]

      Julia is a terrific writer and her project “The Keeping Room” has made progress of late in terms of casting, moving toward production!
