Our current project: Love Under Glass

Follow LoveUnderGlass on Twitter

Love Under Glass is a character-driven dramatic short film adapted from a short story by New York writer Jonathan Lethem.

Now in post-production, the script for Love Under Glass was developed through an online collaboration that spanned the Atlantic Ocean: for the adaptation, New York City-based director Diane Ingino conceived a screen story structured around Lethem's work, and asked the very talented Sarah Daly—who was living in Ireland at the time—to help write the screenplay. Now based in Scotland, Daly has also collaborated online with actor Joseph Gordon Levitt, resulting in short film projects that received praise this year at Sundance and SXSW. Ingino and Daly "met" on an online screenwriting message board.

Find out WHAT'S NEXT!

Ingino produced and directed Love Under Glass. The talented, accomplished cast devoted themselves to the project and delivered strong performances as they met the challenges of indie filmmaking and the long hours under hot lights. With carefully selected locations, and the best crew anyone could ask for, the production values will belie the film's "ultra low" budget. The shoot took place May 21-23, 2010. When editing is completed, Love Under Glass will enter the festival circuit.

The Story:

Standing up for yourself doesn’t always mean walking away – or does it?

An insecure artist risks her relationship in a struggle to reclaim her creative voice. Along the way, she faces a tempting offer, a marriage proposal, and an ominous warning from an eccentric stranger. As she grapples with difficult choices, she nearly gives up on making art altogether—until she seizes an opportunity she somehow overlooked before.

Love Under Glass is about one woman’s struggle to achieve a rewarding, creative life while balancing personal relationships with the need for self-determination.
