A hit could be…

Casting call (will edit as information becomes available)

Female lead, 20-25, under 5'9, I would say a mousy type.

Male lead, late 50's to early 60's (bill nighy type).

Needs to be in shape.

Snarky and a bit of an attitude. But I kind want a creepy look.

Mentality if a boss but the position of security guard.

More positions will be added.

Filming at end of July.

More details on roles to come.

Crew is also… Continue

The Importance of Film Festivals...

With as many starving actresses, actors and crew out there, one would think that those looking to work more in the film industry would attend every event that could bring them closer to their goal. However, so many don't understand just how film festivals play into that goal. I am an avid festival goer as I know that it is there that I will find those that I want to work with in the future. By watching others films and networking with those film makers I have been able to access some of the…

The Connection Between Sacramento & American Courtesans

While the idea for American Courtesans may have been sparked by a visit to an S&M club in NYC (see; the actual creation took place on the opposite coast in Sacramento CA. Our company, Centex Enterprises, is located here in Sacto.

Accounts Receivable

Accounts Receivable was shot in Sacramento, California.  Shooting seventeen pages in two twelve-hour days is not recommended for the weak of heart.  But the cast and crew were experienced, prepared and eager.

We were able to lure Christopher Holley away from the Hollywood hills for a few days.  Chris has a knack of portraying what I like to call intimate menace.  The softer he talks, the more nervous everyone gets.  Perfect for the role of Dante, whom an L.A. suit might…
