Abstract/Artist Statement

When a socially awkward woman is tasked with going on twelve blind dates from dating websites, her life gets turned upside down. But for the sake of keeping her job, she knuckles down on the task and has quite the adventure along the way. The romantic comedy Single in Cyberspace, aims to tickle your giggle buds and leave you with the warm and fuzzes. The dating world can be quite the freak show, and staying true to one's self can be harder than it looks. As a writer, I try to write to entertain myself first and foremost. If I don't get a kick out of reading something I wrote, who else will? Making this film really let the creative juices flow, and allowed me to pull from personal experiences that would otherwise be filed under the “Save Truth or Dare” File. Ultimately I wanted to capture this story, because we are now in a society that constantly offers us new ways to meet each other, while simultaneously making us embarrassing ourselves and acting a fool. But the beauty of it is, we are able to experience something real. Something to hold on to, and grow from.
