Angel-Short Film

Hello beautiful and talented people. I am super elated to yet again work amongst you all in a new short film. I am working alongside my mentor director Lacey Turner who has been featured on television platforms such as Entertainment Tonight, Fox, and ABC. He has also had numerous newspaper articles written about him and his films have premiered in multiple film festivals. He has assisted me in helping to cast this wonderful story. If you are interested in an opportunity to be a part of this production please continue to read.

I am not looking for someone who just knows how to act but someone who has the passion. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was an actor each actor learns something new along the way. If you have never acted before but would love to give it a shot, this production is for you. If the character description does not fit you to the tee but you got something to prove audition anyway. The script is not set in stone until the camera is on.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Synopsis: “Angel” is a coming of age story about young boys maturing and becoming men. Angel Martin has had his share of problems and changes where he had to adapt with the patience to get through. His own insecurities and past hurt has caused him to not see the beauty in his present life. He is faced with a cycle that continues, even down to his own son because he hasn’t fully forgiven the one person that he loved the most who he felt didn’t love him. He has to learn how to forgive and break the cycle to heal his home before it falls apart.
