ANGIE LOUISE is a screenwriter, fiction writer, and songwriter. She earned her BA in Rhetoric with High Distinction from the University of Illinois, where her short fiction and poetry were awarded the Academy of American Poets Prize, the Trelease Fiction Award, and a Quinn Fellowship. Shortly thereafter, she wrote late-night stage series Shuddering Pines ("Superb…An instant tradition, not to be missed" - The Stranger) and a handful of short films.
In 2001, Angie's first feature screenplay, Gory Gory Hallelujah, was filmed in Seattle by Von Piglet Productions and became an award-winning cult comedy (Best Feature - Fantasy, Shockerfest, Los Angeles) currently in international distribution and available on Netflix. In 2005, she co-wrote Circus of Infinity, an award-winner at Seattle's Science Fiction Film Festival, in which a circus dwarf's flight out of a cannon serves as a metaphor for life. In 2008, she wrote a second feature screenplay, Destination: Fallopia!, a satirical sci-fi battle of the sexes written as a work for hire for Von Piglet Productions.
In 2010, Angie was hired by Von Piglet to rewrite the screenplay for a family feature, Ira Finkelstein's Christmas. Her resulting script, about a Jewish kid who'll stop at nothing to celebrate Christmas, was made into an award-winning comedy in 2011 starring Elliott Gould and David DeLuise (and featuring Angie as a B-movie diva and space-age Mrs. Claus). The film won Best Comedy at the Los Angeles International Film Festival and is currently in negotiations for release and distribution. In 2012, Angie was hired to develop a story with Corcoran for a sequel, Ira Finkelstein's Day of the Dead, and subsequently to write the screenplay, which she completed in June 2012.
Angie is now working to finish her first novel, Baby, the darkly comic tale of a lady novelist trying to write her own pregnancy out of existence.
