Ms. Weinberger would go on to meld both her creative world and sense of social activism in her Art. Beginning in 2009 as a Coordinator of the Austin Screenwriters Group, she was able to combine her passion for and love of creative and philanthropic work in the form of Script Writing. Her desire to tell stories within fantastical worlds that explore the human condition would first come to the “Big Screen” in the short film BITS & PIECES. This would also pair Ms. Weinberger with her future business partners and lead to the formation of Edgen Films, LLC. Her favorite genre to write is Science Fiction/Fantasy and she enjoys working closely with writers in the development phase of their scripts. Look for her latest works, VIKINGS vs WEREWOLVES and FAIRY HILL, coming soon from Edgen Films.
