THE STORY: Ethan, a successful independent filmmaker, is sweating over casting his newest project in his hometown of Winston-Salem when Spencer, a newly-minted adjunct theatre professor, auditions for the lead.

Their mutual attraction is immediate, and they start a charming and amusing dance of personal and professional, eroticism.

Ethan’s smart and witty older sister, Liz, is thrown into the mix.

She supports herself as a hairdresser; her acting career, and her hopes, have derailed a bit with time.

A subtly comedic story set in the creative world, EMERGING ARTIST GRANT explores how we struggle to make something of our lives, and it questions the moral crises we encounter when trying for our dreams.
