ANON NO MORE! Kokotailo, Chy, Plitt Honoured
You saw Lori Kokotailo as the youngest daughter in HUNGRY SEASON, as the actress Kate Terry in A BRIGHT PARTICULAR STAR, and playing Beatrice in the Stones Throw / Emerging Artist showcase production LESS ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The girl's got range! And Chy was marvelous as Martha in HUNGRY SEASON, as the farm wife in CHICKENS, her long history at Pacific Theatre going right back to INTO AN EMPTY ROOM and both stagings of DREAMS OF KINGS & CARPENTERS.
Both Lori and Chy have been nominated as Best Actress for comic performances in locally-lensed short films, SUPER-ANON and SARCASM-ANON respectively. SUPER-ANON (which won a Significant Achievement Award for Ensemble Acting and the Best Film Award in the REEL FAST 48 Hour Film Festival) recieved two other nominations as well at the CANWEST COMEDY FEST, for Best Film and Best Actor (Terry Hayman). Additional information on SUPER-ANON is available at http://www.superanon.com
And here's one that slipped by in the dog days of summer: SUPER-ANON director Steve Plitt won huge accolades at the recent International Christian Visual Media Conference in Denver, for THE FANNY CROSBY STORY, a docudrama he wrote and directed about the blind hymn writer who penned more than ten thousand hymns.
