Albert has been selected for multiple pitch sessions with industry professionals for Coverfly Pitch Week, taking place the week of April 3-7, 2023.
Past participating companies include Lionsgate, Verve, Anonymous Content, Dreamworks, 21 Laps, Brillstein Entertainment, Lit Entertainment, Automatik, and MGM.
Albert will be participating in general meetings for literary representation and pitch meetings for his screenplays Incarnations and The Verge of Seas.
Albert’s grounded sci-fi drama screenplay Incarnations is a “Black List Endorsed/Recommended” script about a brilliant Ivy League biologist desperate to reunite with his deceased four-year-old son, sacrificing his career and marriage to journey to Tibet to obsessively pursue the meaning of a mysterious epigenetic marker – the “fingerprint of the soul” – that may be proof of reincarnation. Incarnations was recently selected for a 2022-2023 Humanitas New Voices Fellowship, as a work that explores the human condition in a nuanced, meaningful way. The project also won First Place in the Best Screenplay competition at the Oscar-accredited 2021 Rhode Island International Film Festival, and was a finalist for the Tracking Board Launch Pad Feature Competition, Creative Screenwriting Unique Voices Screenplay Competition, and Screencraft Film Fund.
Albert’s gay sci-fi love story The Verge of Seas centers on a troubled gay man who discovers the shocking truth about himself and of the universe when his husband and adopted children mysteriously vanish on a trip to his childhood home in Montana.
