Today I did a commercial for the AmpJacket – an acoustic amplifier for the iPhone 5 made by Kubxlab. The commercial was directed and produced by John Hansen of Core Studios – look for it to be complete in the next month!
Filming wrapped last night for “Benny”, which was bittersweet, as shooting a film with my son was an experience I will always treasure and I didn’t want it to end, but after two 12-hour shoot days, he was exhausted and I couldn’t wait to put him to bed! But I am thankful for the chance to share what I love to do with my talented little man. And I would be remiss if I did not mention how it was also wonderful to share the screen with Ashley Licata, the actress playing Benny’s imaginary friend! We had a great crew and it was a pleasure to work on another Carey Hu film. Look for “Benny” to hit the festival circucit!
I am super excited to be playing the mother of my actual son, Colin, who will be playing the title role of Benny. He is such a natural performer and I am overjoyed by how much he is enjoying acting in his first film. We had a read through and blocking rehearsal today and we shoot “Benny” this weekend! I am also happy to be working once again with the very talented Carey Hu (Director), with Htat Htut as Director of Photography. “Benny” is an independent short film which will be shot on Super 16 mm film.
I was cast in a supporting role for the short film “The End“, a Tisch thesis film by Emma Jay (Writer/Director) with Peter Steusloff as Director of Photography. I will be playing Barbara, the mother of the lead character, which will be played by Cassidy Lehrman (HBO’s Entourage). Principal photography set to start November 30th.
