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’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.
