I have been SO busy... sorry for the lack of blogging... here is the Dread Central exclusive release of our Alice D. poster... this movie is DONE! It's amazing! More info coming soon!
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:

I'm so proud to announce Dorothy and the Witches of Oz will be released in theaters, next month. I had a BLAST playing one of the Witches (Ev Locast) in this movie! It will have a limited release at both Harkins Theaters and AMC Theaters.
Me and my army of monkeys, as Ev Locast.
How many wonderful things can I say about The Witches of Oz? :) It was so much fun to be involved in this project and I can't wait to share the theatrical movie!!! And, didn't these people read my post about filming in Dec-March!!!? It was freaking freezing shooting in F'ing Connecticut in December, January and even April, for re-shoots. But, so much fun, even though I was wearing eight layers of stockings. My legs are NOT THAT FAT, people.
In this Leigh Scott/Eliza Swenson movie, I played a super fun BAD witch. I was dressed and made up in 1930's style, and my scenes are with some fantastic actors including: Billy Boyd, Mia Sara, Eliza Swenson, Barry Ratcliffe and Elizabeth Masucci. When we shot, I had shorter brown hair... which, now that I am blonde again I must say... blonde's don't always have more fun. It's all about your attitude and how much you've had to drink.
I also met some great actors on this project, aside from those who I worked in scenes with... Noel Thurman, Al Snow, Montie Domingue, Ari Zagarus, Chanel Ryan, who I don't have scenes with, are FANTASTIC. I also got to see the beautiful and ever talented Paulie Rojas (who plays Dorothy), who was in Lure with me.
This project is so amazing, and considering the people at Imaginarium are doing everything themselves... yeah, they are that good, I wish I could do all that shit...I just hire people (or beg them). Here are some links for you:
