In 2002, Cami Delavigne began writing Blue Valentine with director Derek Cianfrance in his freezing DUMBO loft, wearing socks on her hands to keep warm while typing. Blue Valentine was released in 2010 and starred Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams in a critically-acclaimed portrait of love lost. Michelle Williams garnered an Oscar nomination for her role in Blue Valentine. Currently, Delavigne is developing a TV series called Whipsmart about a kindergarten teacher by day, dominatrix by night. She is also working on a feature film about competitive New York mothers. Also in development is a father daughter drama called Mammoth for Daniela Sea (The L Word) to helm. And God’s Lonely Man is a thriller about a pastor with a vision to murder. God’s Lonely Man (previously titled Church) was a finalist in the 2009 Netflix Find Your Voice Film Competition. Last year, Delavigne wrote Famous Person Talent Agency, a 3-part comedy webshow about a showbiz agent who has all hope and zero razzle dazzle. In 2008, she co-wrote OWOTO, an interactive sitcom that received three 2008 Webby nominations. She lives in Brooklyn with director Ivan Hurzeler for whom she wrote God’s Lonely Man and their baby daughter, Charlie.
