Over this past weekend we held auditions for the two main roles in our upcoming short film, "Perchance to Dream", to fill out our three woman cast alongside the wonderful Jamie Donnelley, playing the elderly widow Isabel Dover, who passes away, only to re-awaken as her younger self.
We had the best set of auditions I've ever held, but two woman stood out above all others and I could not be more thrilled to announce they have both been cast in our film. Lauren Elyse Buckley and Ioanna Meli will respectively be playing the young Isabel and Meredith, the caretaker of elderly Isabel.
Production begins early April. Many updates to come.
We had an absolute blast at the Chaplin Theater in Hollywood for the premiere of "Consuming Beauty" for our cast, crew and some of our gracious Kickstarter supporters that helped this film become a reality. The screening was followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew.
