Recent and Upcoming Projects:

2021

August 2 shoot was awesome for a  faith based series called Prison Letters. I was the patient of little faith whose hospital roommate was quite the opposite. The Times Square Church team were on their best game. So talented, so professional and divinely inspired. It was a joy to be Helen in this first episode.

A recent glowing review of Ageless Love:

Agesless Love TAP into Ridgewood

July 29 was the world premiere of Ageless Love

Dream team director Joshua Coates and PM/cinematographer Jeremy Dennis
Bubbie (Julie Chapin) and young Yale (Nick D’Ambrosio)   and older Yale (Nick McCormack) the costar of Ageless Love

Filming in the short thriller Leashes in Newark Delaware in July. Kim Jacobs the mother of one of the leads. Interesting story line with dog costars and paranormal effects.

Booked a digital commercial for Penguin/Random House audio books All that was required was for me to chill. Loved it

 

Human Hibachi 2   First day of filming with my film family and sons best friend
Any one up for homemade dogs?? Yum
The look of concern that my film family eats human remains.
The happiness of knowing it’s pretend.

Woo hoo  The film Ageless Love is up for a Golden Globe award and will be screening at Cannes later this year.

I just loved everything about this movie. I played Bubbie, the grandmother of Yale Schwartz back in the 1940s.

Check out this link where  the Director Joshua Coates is being interviewed in Golden Globes magazine.

The re-edited version of The Man with the Floppy Ears  will be found On Demand at OnTheStage.com beginning June 4 – 17 and then the 18-30.  due to the limitations of OnTheStage they only allow us two weeks at a time for ticketing.  The tickets will be $4 + some small fee by OnTheStage.

And the Zoom table read of a sci-fi fantasy called Leashes.  It will have “dog actors”.   Going to be fun. Filming in July.  I am the mother of the lead.
May is the month of table reads :
Human hibachi 2, the horror comedy sequel to the feature film Human Hibachi.  This one is going to be close your eyes screaming scary,  Filming in June.

Terrific shooting a short indie on May 2 called In His Pocket a fantasy piece about a young working girl (played and produced by Amanda Schoonover) and Jack White (played by Doug Greene).  I played Amanda’s boss.  Director David Nikolas is almost a ft and a half taller than I – made it easy to see him as needed 😊

After 13 months only filming on zoom or outdoors (due to Covid) feels so good to finally be part of a shoot again. On April 26 played a psychiatrist in the trailer of Unique Rose directed by Christopher McClean of Black Lens Cinema.

Stay tuned for more shoots scheduled later this month and next.

Saturday, April 3, at 8pm on PhillyCam 1, watch the world premiere of Genteel.  I play Lucille, a sensual southern barfly.    It’s Joseph Carlin’s third feature.  After the screening it will be released on VOD.
In Feb. 2020 I was in this awesome independent film.  It is now making it’s way through the film festival circuit.  See the excellent review below:
On February 20 my artist collective filmed on Zoom an original horror short called the Raptor written by Brian Smith.  Lower left frame I was the mother of two of the actors and the other actors played the psychiatrist and best friend.
I admit that I’m going a bit quarantine bonkers.  Sooo to relieve the stress I just joined a group of milf cougars broadcast with our Tik Tok sensation Josh Richards. It was actually quite fun and these are home shots getting in the mood – LOL.
GOODBYE SEVENTIES will be released on February 16 and is available for pre-order now HERE
On January 11 I was interviewed by the inspirational Marguerite Fair of Fair Productions on her show Laughter Talks.  Click the link below to listen to the interview:
