Her current feature-writing project is Rewriting Violet. Through her protagonist, Violet, Terri explores women’s shifting sexual power on screen and off after the film industry adopted the 1933 Hays Code. The code drastically changed the portrayal of sex in the movies and dramatically shifted power away from the women who ruled the silver screen at the time.
She worked closely with producers to deliver physical production support for filming on the lot. She was given the opportunity to reach out to indie filmmakers to offer Universal’s locations, offices and services. Through this program she developed relationships with many independent filmmakers.
