Sara Bareilles’ latest serves as the lead single from her fourth studio album, The Blessed Unrest. While researching the song, I couldn’t help but to fall more in love with it. Not only was it directed by first-timer Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation, I Love You, Man), but Bareilles wrote it for a friend who was facing trouble with his sexuality.
No wonder it’s already the third-highest charting song of her career.
Who: Jennifer Westfeldt, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph, Chris O’Dowd, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Edward Burns, and Megan Fox.
What: Two friends have a baby in order to skip the negative effects birth has on relationships.
When: Premiered at 2011 Toronto International Film Festival
Where: New York City
Why: An all-star cast excels in this surprisingly original (and refreshingly awkward) comedy.
How: Written and Directed by Jennifer Westfeldt

WAHOO! I got shortlisted as one of the top 25 contestants to move on to the next round of the Best Job In The World contest, but the contest isn't over yet!

I recently finished a course titled “Art of the Short Screenplay” at the Jacob Burns Film Center.
There, I was able to develop an idea I’ve been toying with for a while. Here’s a draft of the (very brief) opening scene:
Nikki Williams is no stranger to penning hits for pop radio. Her most recent co-writing credit is none other than Demi Lovato’s “Heart Attack,” which currently sits comfortably at the #10 spot on the Billboard Hot #100.
Check out her solo effort below, “Glowing,” from her as-of-yet untitled album, due for a 2013 release.
