Dawna Lee Heising, Host of eye on Entertainment” video series, interviews multi-talented Chandra Gerson, writer, producer and director. Gerson’s film, "Book of Choices" is a psychological drama about the choices one makes and the results of those decisions. The main character, Carl Johnson, escapes reality by reading a book of short stories. The stories come to life in this film and in each one, the main character has made a choice and must live with the outcome of that choice. Little does Carl know the importance of the choice he will have to make as the film progresses. Filled with twists and turns, the film bays the idea of what you are seeing may not be what is real.
The talented cast of “Book of Choices” includes Trevor Scott (Criminal Minds, Enlisted, General Hospital), Enrique Almeida (CSI, Boston Legal, Bruce Almighty), Dan Spector (Happy Days, Facts of Life, Different Strokes), and award winning actress Dawna Lee Heising (Teachers' Day, Slink).
Gerson tells Heising that she started writing scenes for an acting class she was taking with Gene and Toni Bua at "Acting For Life" and that led to her first short film centering on domestic violence entitled, "Impaired Innocence." In 2009, she started her own production company, KitnKat Productions and more short films followed. She began entering them into festivals. In 2012, her film "Burning Distortion" was accepted into the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival and won "Best Drama."
