Like people say, it takes 10 years to become an overnight sensation. How close to your character are you? Every character brings something new out of yourself. That sets us apart from the rest. Let us know in the comments below or on ,, or! From that frustration grew a need to be doing my own thing. Our first feature was possible due to 503 people who believed in the project and donated on Kickstarter, our family and friends who donated their time or resources and our own money to be able to finish it.
I read all I could online about directing, watched videos, made shotlists and storyboards while the rest of the cast and the crew slept. Take that, outdates established patriarchy! Now that I have this experience going forward I am looking to work on things with a more realistic budget but for that we need access. In Hollywood I learned pretty quick that everyone talks a lot and waits for things to happen most of the time.

What inspired you to become an actress, Luciana? Lorena was fun and outgoing. I wrote the story and I had a very clear vision of what I wanted it to look like so I jumped at the opportunity. It was something I was always fascinated by as a child and loved to play pretend like most children but I could do it for days. My mom always tells me how I would spend days on the same pretend world, building a stage or a city for my dolls, then the wardrobe, then the story line and then the actual playing.
But that leads to a lot of frustration because things take time. After that experience I started to look at content in a completely different way. I need my work to reach the people who make decisions, who have the power to create change and opportunities. I remember falling asleep on the make-up chair or while they set up camera after the walk through a rehearsal. Catch 22 you are thinking? The old triple thread is now a quadruple one in a whole new way and this proud hyphenated actress is never not working.
I was gracious about it but kept my distance from that day on. However what was in that envelope was a play and his whispers he was telling me I would be a great producer. Autodidact in the funny business of producing and directing cause there ain't no time to wait for someone to teach you. I explained a little bit out what we have done and what we look to do going forward.
So now when I hear critics about my film, or my play, or my acting it makes me smile. I am happy with who I am today because I am clear on the fact that I know nothing and I am open to learn everything. Please tell us about Luciana Faulhaber. Case, Lindsay Eshelman, and Javier E. After entering graduate school for politics and taking acting classes at night, it was undeniable what my calling was. Our feature was at right of not being made and I had to jump in as actor, producer and then director to make sure it would succeed.
Your true friends and supporters will be there for you. So Javier and I, together and apart, set out to write our own content in order to tell the stories we wanted the world to hear. That play, The Smell of Popcorn, was our first production together Off — Broadway in New York. What do I mean by access? Producing is rewarding and empowering but we continued to run into an issue.
So I will continue acting-producing-writing-directing until I get my day under the sun. I was raised in a tradition Latin family where being an artist was not an option. I am who I am today because of everything I ever been through. It reminds me that I am the one in the area while they are just watching the show. I love this question and as a content creator I get that a lot.
Are you excited to check it out beginning May 14th? Today, Dread Central is thrilled to exclusively present the trailer for this female-fueled twist on classic slasher motifs. To this day I joke that to by standards it must have looked like a drug transaction. But I am not cut for the traditional acting career if that even exists today. We heard that from so many people since we were doing the Kickstarter campaign.
