STAY SIX FEET APART
Two sweethearts reveal the darker side of dating in a post-virus world.

When a stroll in the park turns to love at first sight, young sweethearts, Aaron and Paige, find themselves navigating the road to romance in a socially distanced world.  But with the rules of old turned taboo, the new normal takes its toll and desire proves a force of nature too great to resist.

At a little over a page in length, Rob Herzog’s Stay Six Feet Apart delivers a snack-sized script with a timely subject wrapped up with a wince inducing twist of horror.  Two characters, one location and dialogue-free, Stay Six Feet Apart would make a great short script for a filmmaker/make-up artist combo looking for post-lockdown inspiration.

When I was six, he predicted that our neighborhood would be attacked by window ghouls. These ghouls supposedly would claw into our rooms and devour us all. Only those blessed with large dogs would survive, he said, because window ghouls hated them. Two nights later, I imagined the ghouls at my window, clawing the screen. At this... Go to bio
