Why did you entered the contest? I entered the contest hoping that I would win. I'm excited that I won! This Sony MP3 player will come in handy during long periods of solitude; I (and my Muse) greatly appreciated the gift!
Projects currently working on/about to come out: I am currently taking a breather from producing new works. However, some visual arts and literally projects that are already the pipeline are: “The Other Venus”, “In Transit”, and “The Scribe.”

Jude Tulli - Lotter-iie winner of Roxio's DVDit
Bio: Obtained a master's degree in educational
counseling before he remembered in earnest that an important
part of his plan, hedonistically idealistic though it may
be, to save (or at least change) the world involves leaving
behind a legacy of written work. Fortunately for him, the
two pursuits dovetail with serendipitous grace, as his
young adult fantasy manuscripts (first installment coming
soon to a slush pile near you) strive to attest. Moreover,
though his undying albeit unrequited love for the piano
gives him pause to admit it, what he makes up for in visceral
emotion he lacks twice as much in gross motor skills. While
he can still plunk out a few classical pieces without utterly
surrendering his dignity, he laments that he will never
shine before a keyboard with one thousandth of the brilliance
of a Claudio Arrau or Vladimir Horowitz, which means writing
is the only chance he's got left.
Projects currently working on/about to come out: In
addition to writing short scripts, I am currently promoting
a feature-length romantic comedy. Perhaps with the Roxio
software I'll try producing a short piece or two if only
to help the time pass while waiting on responses to queries
and submissions. I plan to check with the zoo to see if
they know of any actors who might work for peanuts (note:
IIE is not responsible for Jude's comedy material, he writes
his own stuff...he does).
Bio: Alex graduated from Salem State College with a B.A. in Theatre and History in 2004, after studying in New York at Circle in the Square Theatre School. Currently, she works behind a desk at a software company for 40 hours a week. When not busy asking herself “How did this happen?”, she splits her “free time” among working with XY TV as an on-air personality, modeling, performing in local films, and contributing as an actor, writer and pre-production manager for Junkyard Dogs Productions in Boston, MA, of which she is one of the founding members.
Why did you entered the contest? I entered the contest because I really didn't think I'd win...but I am completely excited I did! Roxio.com's software will enable me to start producing more video projects, rather than just waiting to hear about projects and auditioning for everything. Junkyard Dogs has already started planning our first short film, which we hope to work on this summer, so believe me, this software came at exactly the right time!
Projects currently working on/about
to come out:
Awesome! Congratulations again Alex, on being our very first IIE Lotter-iie winner! Break a leg...or two.
If there's one thing Billy hates it's freaks. The sort of crazy people who smile at you in the street, say hello, maybe even bake you a cake just to be friendly. The sort of people who just have to be taught a lesson.
