I'm excited to say that Alice D. is successfully in the can! What a terrific experience... a great group of actors and crew in a gorgeous mansion in Barrington, Rhode Island. It was one of the BEST times I've had on set, and from all the great messages I've gotten... that was a universal feeling.
Alice was shot by genius cinematographer, Eric Latek. I couldn't be happier with how this movie looks and feels, thanks to Eric's amazing eye. Eric is also editing... and the scenes I have seen are phenomenal! I couldn't have done Alice without this awesome, talented, amazing person, along with my producers Chris Maltauro, Kristina Page and Josh Hammond.
Alice D. had a dream team cast: Kane Hodder, Al Snow, Juan Riedinger, Aaron Massey (also still photography), Megan Hensley, Michael Reed, Julianne Tura, Kristina Page (also producer), Josh Hammond (also producer), Eliza Swenson, Sarah Nicklin, Kaylee Signore, Chanel Ryan, Barry Ratcliffe, Nick Apostolides, Deborah Venegas (also wardrobe designer), Ryan Wojcik (also key makeup), Bill Jacques (also first AD), William DeCoff, Kachina Dechert and myself - (writer/director).
EACH ACTOR brought his or her best performance.... everyone. Not ONE bad moment or performance.... and then a lot of them stayed on after they wrapped and helped out. Really amazing, giving people in this group.
Special thanks, VERY VERY special... to my Mom for coming and helping us. She drove back and forth (to see my Dad) three two+ hour round trips, she helped us shop, she tended to peoples needs... she took care of my dogs, she cooked a lot of great meals for our cast and crew, kept everyone laughing, and happy and simply is the best Mom. :) Love you, Momma.
Also Thank you to our non -actor part of the CREW: Pati Pawlak, Alisha Cratty, Mathew Fisher, Steven Chiavaroli, George Troester, Paul Gonzales and Riot Huxley.... you guys are terrific. Thank you.
I will be uploading stills and candids and all that fun stuff, soon... have already added a few. In the meantime:

One more week and we will be shooting Alice D.! We are pretty much cast up (still moving around a couple day parts)... and I must say, casting can be the hardest part of the process... I say that now.
I'm proud to say Kane Hodder and Al Snow have joined our stellar cast. We have terrific actors in this project... many of whom are friends of mine. This is going to be a blast. I can't wait to start sharing our stills and behind the scene shots.
Please check out our Alice Facebook Page and IMDB.
<<<<--------- this will be me in one week!
Happy New Year!!!!
