This Jersey Girl couldn’t be any more proud than I was to premiere HOUSE BROKEN – the first film I produced – in my home state at the Garden State Film Festival on April 2nd!! I was surrounded by family and friends and we screened before a full house at the Resorts Screening Room! It was a great day – AND our little film fared very well! Out of 200+ films, we placed 8th overall in audience votes! There may be no trophy for 8th place, but I feel like a big winner!
I was honored to be cast in the reading of the Garden State Film Festival 2016 screenplay competition winner, “Welcome to Camelot” by Rachel Goldberg. The group of talented actors included – Keith Armonaitis, Michael Tota, Garry Pastore, Joseph A. Halsey, Heather Brittain O’Scanlon, Lynn Spencer, Nick Falcone, Al Sapienza, Kerrianne Spellman, Paul Castro Jr., Qui Santewa and Victoria Guthrie.
Fun CHASING NEWS segment promoting HOUSE BROKEN and the Garden State Film Festival! Nothing like strutting down a red carpet at 6:30 in the morning! Have a watch HERE!
I was honored to co-host the red carpet for the opening night of the 2016 Garden State Film Festival with my HOUSE BROKEN co-star, Andy Peeke. We had a fantastic time interviewing and meeting all of the filmmakers – including living legends Ed Asner and Sally Struthers! It was a lively crowd and we were thrilled to be a part of it!
I did a fun Film Combat segment for CHASING NEWS! The team at Cinematic Fight Studio schooled Jillian Jablonski and me on how to make it look like we were duking it out for the camera! We had a lot of fun and learned a ton – so much so that I signed up for a series of classes with CFS so I can be a little more convincing next time… Check it out HERE!
HOUSE BROKEN will have its first New York City screening at the Take Two Film Festival! Show time is at 5 PM on April 22nd at Anthology Film Archives. Purchase tickets here: Take Two Film Festival – HOUSE BROKEN Screening
A New Jersey actor was recently arrested for using a prop gun on a film set! The producer and director aren’t being held accountable and the actor is left holding the bag (or – gun). A lot of people are understandably upset about it – and I was on 101.5 this morning to add my two cents. Have a listen!
