Writing for the screen is Lucinda's first passion. Her documentary work fueled a greater passion for adapting true stories for the fiction/narrative world proving her talent for molding true stories into satisfying cinema. An ongoing creative evolution led Lucinda to also write original screenplays. Comedy and Drama. A thriller or two.
Here are some of her projects. If they are adaptations she holds the story rights and is more than likely looking for financing and producing partners.
