Casting is underway for lead, supporting, and day playing roles in a still-untitled feature film “about a blue-blooded, young, married woman who has an affair and gets more than what she bargains for.” Production is slated for Oct. 9–19 in NYC, and will pay a SAG-AFTRA ULB day rate.

Short film “Unravel,” about a young woman who drops out of college to take care of her five younger siblings, seeks actors for several lead and supporting roles. The drama will shoot summer 2018 at a to-be-determined location, though talent is sought from New York.
