I am so excited to announce that I'm heading up to Maine for a month-long filming process for a feature film! It's a Zombie Romantic Comedy called "Night of the Living Deb" written and directed by Project Greenlight winner Kyle Rankin!
I am coming on board as a Stunt Coordinator (alongside my partner in crime, Nick Shuhan) as well as a Stuntman and will be playing a small role in the movie.
The movie is sure to be fantastic, I've actually been following the movie for a few months prior to getting asked to do the project as it is starring a couple of my favorite actors from TV and Film. I first heard about it through the twitter account of David Krumholtz (Numb3rs, Serenity, The Santa Clause - IMDB page). He announced he was joining the cast of a movie filming in Portland Maine, and my interest was officially piqued. Then I saw the male lead was being played by Michael Cassidy (Argo, Men at Work, Smallville, The O.C. - IMDb page) and I got really excited.
A couple of weeks ago I got a call from my good friend and all around mentor/guru Mark Bedell asking if I was free to head to Maine to take part in a zombie project filming in Maine, and the stars aligned. After talking to Kyle, talking to Nick, and reading the script, I can tell you that this is going to be an awesome project, and I can't wait for you all to see it! Kyle's put together a fantastic team, and the script is absolutely hilarious.
