SCREENWRITING

Daniel adapted his short play, THE LEPERS, to the screen, which was filmed this past fall in Mineola, Long Island, under the direction of acclaimed director Jordan Axelrod, starring Eric Percival and Valerie Terranova.  To be released in 2019.

Daniel's pilot script for THE OUTLET 
is available upon request. 
 
It's 1993 in NYC, and video rental is all the rage.  Lou's Outlet, a Hell's Kitchen hub, is the home to the true film aficionado. But amidst the impressive inventory is a cocky staff rife with dysfunction and sordid histories - and yet it will be the most stable thing in the life of an
aimless young cinephile from New Jersey.
