Shari Berman is an award-winning filmmaker, published writer and film editor. Shari’s features include My Life As Abraham Lincoln, Sugar! and Detention 101. She is gearing up to direct her next feature complete with her award-winning script – The Ghost in the Attic. This will be mostly shot in front of a green screen and only Shari knows what images will be placed in the background; you never know what you are going to get but I’m sure it will be worth the cost of the popcorn with extra fake butter and a ton of salt. If nothing else, watching the actors watch what she has done will be something to behold. She edits all her films and began editing as a small child by cutting puzzle pieces to make them fit as she thought best, creating some very strange pictures. Shari knew even then that she was on to something and has embarked on a life of making one weird picture after the next. She just won’t stop. Really, there isn’t anything you can do about it so you might as well join in the fun, check out her films and embrace the weird. Besides, they are bound to catch up with you someday and it’s best not to let them catch you off-guard. Her screenplay Numbers is available from Screenplay Press in paperback and ebook. Shari grew up in Co-op City in the Bronx and is a member of Film Fatales, the FilmmakeHers and New York Women Filmmakers. She enjoys mentoring artistic people and striving to eat as much sushi and shrimp chips as humanly possible. I suspect she has mercury poisoning
