Gretl Claggett was named the inaugural winner of AMC Network’s BEST FEMALE CREATOR Award at Stareable Fest 2020 for her independent short film / long-form narrative pilot, STORMCHASER. She chats with Janeane about her inspiration behind climate- and socio-political driven themes in storytelling.



One only has to follow the news — Global Warming, Disaster Capitalism, Trump, Bullying, #MeToo, Ageism, Sexism, Racism, a Country Divided and Shrinking Middle Class — to see the consequences of a predatory society. STORMCHASER aims to explore these inflammatory issues by looking at both the noble ambitions and dog-eat-dog urges that make people so damn complicated, asking: How do we stop the storm of violence in our culture where we’re all complicit — even when we’re oppressed by forces that seem so much larger than ourselves?

STORMCHASER has been selected by 45 festivals to date, and has won multiple Best Director, Best Short Film/Pilot, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Acting/Best Ensemble Cast, Best VFX and Best Original Score Awards.




Gretl is currently developing STORMCHASER into an episodic anthology series, while writing/developing two other female-forward shows/films that also grapple with socio-political issues in entertaining, surprising ways.

Here is the Creator’s Message which includes the trailer as a sneak peek into the film.
