“Death Defying Acts” marks Edward G. Norris’ first feature length film. After attending Parsons
School of Design in New York City, where he studied film and photography, Edward completed
a series of short films that focused on neurosis and infidelity. He found his ultimate inspiration
in the works of 19th century French writer Guy de Maupassant, which inspired his screenplay
“Death Defying Acts.”

Edward has worked as a film editor on many prestigious projects. He was senior editor on the
Showtime feature length documentary “Orson Welles: The One Man Band” as well as Peter
Bogdanovich’s “The Cat’s Meow,” which was released by Lions Gate Films.

His next feature is a psychological horror film to be shot on location in a prestigious insane
asylum in New England. After suffering from a nervous breakdown, a successful writer in her
early 40’s tries to convalesce at her cousin’s home. There she learns that her grandmother,
at the very same age, suffered from a nervous breakdown and was institutionalized in the late
1950’s. She soon discovers the horrors of what happened to her grandmother and exactly
why she was committed.
