OPERATOR supported by Alfred P. Sloan Foundation grant

OPERATOR, my new feature screenplay co-written with the lovely Sharon Greene, has been given a grant through Sundance and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to promote research and development on the science and technology themes in the script.

Starting the project, Sharon and I were determined not to write anything “science-tastic” (you know what I mean. We’ve all seen it.), and this grant will go a long way in realizing that dream. We’re so excited to do in depth research on speech recognition technology, AI, and more, and to meet with scientists in these fields.

OPERATOR chosen for Sundance Screenwriters lab

My new project OPERATOR, co-written with my lovely wife Sharon Greene, was chosen as one of 12 projects for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab this January! Here’s a little taste of this upcoming feature –

Logan Kibens (co-writer/director) and Sharon Greene (co-writer) / Operator (U.S.A.): In this existential comedy, when a programmer is hired to create the ideal personality for an automated call center, his attempts to quantify what it means to be human throws his life into chaos.

We just got back from the lab and the festival, and had an incredible, enriching time. The advisors and other filmmakers are fantastic, and I can’t wait to see all the projects develop. Check out more about them here, in the Sundance Press Release.

More info to come as the script develops. Thank you Sundance!
