Over the next ten years, Abrams made countless amateur films that he entered in various student festivals, winning a number of awards.

Abrams sold his first feature film treatment, "Taking Care of Business,” while attending Sarah Lawrence College. He followed that with "Regarding Henry,” starring Harrison Ford and "Forever Young,” starring Mel Gibson. His feature producing credits include "The Pallbearer,” directed by "Felicity” co-creator Matt Reeves, and "The Suburbans,” with Jennifer Love Hewitt. He has also appeared on screen as an actor in "Diabolique” and "Six Degrees of Separation.”
