Elisa started out in Italy as a TV writer for Comedy Central and Endemol in Milan,  but her real passion has always been the theatre and cinema.  She decided to follow her dream and come to the States where she started out writing short films.  Several of those were soon produced and shown at area Film Festivals.  She went on to write feature length films but now since becoming a member of “the studio” this past  November she has decided to focus more on  writing for the theatre. “I am so honored to be part of such a prestigious organization.  I am meeting so many talented people and learning from them every day. I hope this is going to be the beginning of  a long career in the theatre.”  elisa 2
Last year Elisa wrote a short about a woman with autism who’s a very talented artist.  The script has gotten  the attention of a producer and now will be shot in April/May 2014.  “This is the first drama I have  written,  I come from a comedy background, and it wasn’t easy to talk about a very delicate subject but I hope the audience will appreciate the message we want to send: that “special” and “different” doesn’t mean right or wrong.  In fact, ” different”  means richer and more colorful IF we are willing to allow others to enter our world.” (here’s the website of the campaign to raise money for this project: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/colors-of-love/x/310537)
