“In my fourteen years with the Festival, I've assessed thousands of projects, and few have stuck with me the way her short series did...Bold, outrageous, and laugh-out-loud funny, RFYL proved to be a favorite. “
- Erin Day, NYTV Festival Director
“Run for Your Life” is a fiction show motivated by my personal quest to understand both the absurdity and complexity behind the/my search for love in modern technological times. With the onslaught of dating and hookup sites comes more accessibility, more options, more noise and even more dating stories… Like the time I went out with “Ray-Ban Man,” who refused to take his sunglasses off for the entire date. In fact, the third time I asked him, he said, “The more you ask, they more it won’t happen.” Uh-hem, do I smell a power struggle?
I know I’m not alone in both the PAIN and COMEDY of online dating and wanted to make something that could bring us together so we can find love in better ways.
