 ​Roses on the Lake


A Comedic Drama:   A weekend at the family’s lakeside multi-generational homestead becomes a critical turning point in the lives of three sisters  following the death of their father.  Ruth has spent the last fifteen years being the daughter that has done everything for her parents.  After the final parent’s passing, she is again alone to sort out closing the family home and property.   Now, the absent sisters. Patty and Celeste, along with Patty’s daughter, Sam, are on the way to help with the  yard sale.  Tensions are high when the traveling sisters are late.  Ruth’s only respite is a salt of the earth, opinionated, comedic, and lovable local woman named Fran.

The universal conflicts and frustrations of settling a multigenerational homestead is tempered  with the yard sale’s colorful characters and situations and other humorous events woven throughout the story.

A staged reading of IN THE MOON'S SHADOW followed by a Q&A with the director and actors  was held on July 2,  7 pm - 8:30 pm at the Belgrade, Maine Community Center for All Seasons.  The event was a benefit for the Friends of the Belgrade Public Library.   

We are looking forward to inviting the community to a screening of the film to be scheduled during the summer of 2018.


Response to ROSES ON THE LAKE - From Lea Girarden, Former Director of The Maine Film Office

“Just finished reading Roses. ---Too moved to say anything constructive at the moment.
My sister and I spent our childhood on a lake as well and our camp is still the family point of gravity ( 5 generations) so your script resonates deeply-- and all the family stuff as well~not easy,... beautiful,... sad,... funny,... wise as we all bumble along laughing, crying, trying, getting it wrong, getting it right.   Good work”


Now In Post Production!

Roses on the Lake's presentation at Pecha Kucha Night at the Waterville Opera House, consisting of 20 images in a slide show, with 20 seconds of dialogue per slide. Recorded live, October 2, 2015.


On August 21, 2017 a Total Solar Eclipse crossed the length of the United States from the Oregon coast to North Carolina. This was the first full eclipse of its kind in almost a century. This year's eclipse was the most photographed and recorded in history. We decided to take advantage of this once in a lifetime event and build a narrative feature length film around it. 

The story is about two sisters coming together after a long period of not speaking to one another.  A road trip to the Sand Hills of Nebraska to watch the eclipse becomes the focal point of their journey toward reconciliation.
