A few months ago I had the privilege of Co-Chairing a fan event celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the television series La Femme Nikita.  For this event, the Chairs were fortunate to be able to bring in a number of talented people for panel discussions.  Their work ran the gamut of what it takes to bring a television show to fruition.  One of these folks was Saul Pincus.

Having opportunity to meet Saul in person and find out more about his background as a television editor, I also discovered his very diversified work in Feature Film.  His recent film, Nocturne, which Saul co-wrote and directed, has played to a variety of film festivals and won multiple awards!

Feature Film, Safe Haven
