Goode / Frangione / Kopsa Project Snags Kick Start Bucks
Spot the Pacific Theatre faces? That's the cast and crew for Annunciation Pictures' short film THE HITCHHIKER, directed by Jason Goode. (The sharp-eyed PT person will pick out Steve Waldschmidt, Gillian Rowe, Jason Goode and Gina Chiarelli in the crowd). That film has shown in tons of festivals, garnered oodles of awards, and the good news doesn't stop there.
Jason has been working with Lucia Frangione to develop a short film called POP SWITCH, starring Lucia and her husband Michael Kopsa. Yesterday the Director's Guild of Canada announced that the project has been awarded a $20,000 Kick Start grant.
Frank is in his late 40s and feels too old to become a father for the first time. His wife Estelle forces the issue when, on her 40th birthday, she secretly puts them back on the adoption wait list.
PS Lucia Frangione is presently at work writing LEAVE OF ABSENCE for Pacific Theatre, and you'll see Michael Kopsa in our spring production of THE WOODSMAN. Over in Alberta, Steve Waldschmidt is Ernie Douglas (a role he seems to have been born to play) in Rosebud Theatre's production of TENT MEETING, closing October 20.
