I'M DIRECTING A FILM!

BREAKDOWN RELEASED TODAY ON ACTOR'S ACCESS, BREAKDOWNS EXPRESS, AND BACKSTAGE

I'm happy to announce that I will be directing a short film I wrote called "Hide/Seek" April 6-10 in Guilford, CT!   This has been a pet project of mine for a while, and I'm very excited to bring you along for this journey.  

I will be documenting the entire process of making the film, from casting, to pre-production, to filming, to post production, and I invite you to follow us on Instagram and Facebook, as well as my blog to witness the entire process.   We will share our journey through interviews and pictures as I think it's important for actors to really understand what goes on behind the scenes.

I will be holding auditions at my studio on March 3-5, so be on the lookout for the breakdown in the next two days on Backstage, Actors Access, and Breakdowns Express.   This will be a SAG Short Film Agreement, will pay $100/day, and you don't need to be SAG to submit.  I will simply be looking for the best actors, union or non-union.   That's the way it should be, right?  Oh yeah, and I will also give the actors their footage.  :)

So here is all the info.   Yay!
