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.
