A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB… ADAM GIBBINS

CROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES:
I am thrilled to announce that actor Adam Gibbins has landed the stoner role as “Raven” of the Cemetery Boys. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A. If there’s ever any source material available, that’s the first place I go when preparing for a role. The day I was cast as Raven I immediately ordered a copy of Crowley’s Tomb to get my head into the game. The script is always the best tool when it comes to prep. Reading the entire script, multiple times, is paramount. Knowing every piece of the puzzle can give you a great idea of where your (the character’s) head is at in any given scene. With that being said, all I would need to really hammer home is to find out what is it that I’m fighting for. It’s damn near impossible to tell how I will react in the moment, but I would trust that as long as I’m fighting, really fighting for my point of view and bringing life to the table, it’s hard to go wrong.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Bryan Cranston would have to be among one of my favorite actors. A big reason why I became an actor in the first place was after watching Breaking Bad for the first time. Seeing Cranston being able to transition from genre to genre is impressive, and also something that a lot of artists fight for. His range, and the truth within his acting is amazing. His decorum off set also paints him as a humble, genuine human being. That is something of a rarity for super stars, but it’s a position I would definitely strive for.

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A. My dream role would be to play Girl Walking #4. I would bring all the sass money could buy. But honestly, I have no idea how to answer that question since dream rolls for myself happen to be stuck in a revolving door. It all depends where I’m at in life.

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. Being a hero or villain in my opinion is irrelevant. It’s a subjective title as far as the audience is concerned. A hero fights for what he believes is right, and a villain, also fights for what he believes is right. But, from an audience’s perspective, I would definitely want to be the villain. Why? Simply because it’s more fun to break the rules, and rules can be broken on screen without any consequences.

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of..

A. My dad was the original drummer for the band Badfinger, so I come from a musical household and have been around several famous musicians throughout my life.

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. The hardest role for me to play was actually in a student written Edgar Allan Poe themed play titled The Masque of the Red Death. The only reason why this was a difficult role for me was that I had to learn how to play guitar (I’m a drummer and turn into a monster with a stringed instrument). And once I learned the handful of chords which never sounded correct, I also had to sing, which turned into humming since I was too focused on the guitar. I had less than a month to get this down, and although I practiced every day. It was wasn’t enough. So, as I’m on stage, sitting at the foot of a bed, in my underwear, playing horrible guitar, humming out of key, my scene partner was sleeping in the bed, and after a few bars, she would wake, and the first line out of her mouth was “That is so beautiful? What is it?”, and this is where the hard part came in, because it took every fiber of my being not to laugh in her face. Dirty lies.

A sample of Adams work-

Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. The most fun I’ve had was in a short film titled Dani. I played a tatted up meth junkie with horrible gaudy jewelry and no sense whatsoever. The real fun with the role was behind the scenes, really. We were shooting on an open set, so people were wandering by (and sometimes through) while we were filming. One poor guy skated up to me while I was in full makeup and wardrobe, and started to ask me about all of my tattoos. So this is where I truly was able to act. I was able to be as ignorant, ridiculous, and crude as possible. This kid was convinced I was the real deal. I would say that it was impressive given I had a huge ¢ tattooed on my neck. This lasted for about an hour, until he finally went on his way convinced that the teardrops on my face was my way of keeping track of how many people I’ve murdered. So he’s probably still out there, thinking that guy is somewhere alive and well.

adam2

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. In 2013, I decided to get into acting. So I checked out Truthful Acting Studios in Orlando and took various courses and workshops through their studio. They offered a Master Meisner course in which I went through and completed. For the better part of three years it was my artistic home. The environment and instructors at TA made everyone feel more welcome and respected than any other learning institution I’ve ever been a part of. While taking classes through TA I also did a bit of improvisational comedy at SAK downtown, and I love me some comedy. The only issue I ever ran into there is that my mind is always in the gutter, so it was an exercise as to how not to be crude on the fly, lol.

adam3

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Act. Always be respectful. Get to know yourself, really. And know that each film or stage production you’re on is bigger than yourself.

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A. For years and year I always wanted to be a touring musician in an original band. I’ve been in and out of several groups but things tended to fizzle and pop when all members weren’t on the same page. That was the biggest difficulty for music, and my second largest motivator to start acting. Having an artistic endeavor that at the core of it only needed one person on board to move forward? Sounds good to me. Currently to pay the bills though, I’m a full time shop manager for a safe manufacturer. So between machining, welding, and installing locks on big elaborate steel boxes I’m thinking about when my next acting gig is, or when my band(s) are going to be playing on stage.

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB… Timothy Kittelstad

CROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES:

Casey Jay Moore, Screen Writer and Producer is excited to announce that actor Timothy Kittelstad has been chosen to play the badass character “Shadow” of the Cemetery Boys. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Tim4

A small taste of what’s to come…

 Here’s our Q and A session with Timothy!

 Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A. Becoming another character is not about getting into that characters head, but rather letting him get into yours! To become another person you must immerse yourself in his world, understand how he thinks, but more important, why he thinks that. To do that research before taking on a role is critical. Whether it be delving into a book, or history, or, if possible, meeting the person to understanding who they are. Once you have grasp of the character you merge your thoughts with his and you begin to “character think”, the person you have become starts to develop his own thoughts. Once the mind has merged the body will follow and you will have now become the role. When on set, the wardrobe usually helps complete the transformation. Which allows the character to flow through the lines and not the acting saying the lines. Sometimes, it is necessary to get in character before camera rolls to have an easy transition. I will many times, ad lib lines to myself as the character to clinch the roll right before going on set.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Cary Grant and Jackie Chan are two of my favorite actors. Cary had incredible versatility, able to go from a goofy ball to a the suave and debonair heart throb very easily. Jackie Chan, was\is, simply brilliant. Not only was he a great martial artist, he developed his own style of entertainment which has been unmatched since.

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character? 

A. I don’t necessarily have  dream roll. I want to help create new things that no one has seen before and tell a good story! A story that uplifts, or motivates, or challenges people to be better.

Tim2

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. I prefer to play the hero. Being the Villain can be fun but with so much negativity in the world I love to play the person people would look up to!

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A. My first dream was to play professional soccer! At 17 I toured Italy with a US team and in April 2011 I blew my knee out which destroyed my chances.

Tim1

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. On film I haven’t had a hard roll but in high school I had the lead in the senior play and becoming a smooth, cool character was hard for me since I was the awkward dork in high school.

Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. Most fun roll was when I actually played a villain in  short student film. First fight I choreographed so that made it special. It had an extended woods chase scene with an epic ending battle.

A sample of Timothy’s work-

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. I had taken 4 years of drama in High School but no formal film training.

Tim5

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Decide!! If you want to do something do it 100%! Don’t “give it try” or “see what happens”; decide whether or not you want to be an actor and then give it everything you have!

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

I would be doing entrepreneurial work!

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB… COREY FAIOLA

CROWLEY’S TOMB NEWS & CASTING UPDATES:

 

Casey Jay Moore, Screen Writer and Producer is thrilled to announce that actor Corey Faiola has landed the role as the wild and destructive Cemetery Boy Moses King better known as “Animal”. Film production begins summer 2017.

Corey2

A small taste of what’s to come….

 

Here’s our Q and A session with Corey!

Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?
A. I believe preparing for a character is as easy as learning as much as possible about the character. And once you learn about your character. be sure not to forget who you are, add a little bit of yourself to each role that you take on.
Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?
A. I have lots of favorite actors they’re all incredible and deserve to be where they are. But if I had to pick I would say Dylan O’Brien.  Dylan O’Brien is it good motivation because he is exactly who I am. He never felt like he had to be in this industry but yet fell in love with it by chance. He kept on motivating himself to get further and further into this industry and is now one of the greatest actors of my generation.
Corey1
Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character? 
A. I don’t really have a dream role. I love to challenge myself in roles that are different from one another.
Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?
A. I prefer to play the villain, why because I think the villain has more of a mystery, everyone’s in love with the heroes but it’s the villains that give the heroes there true spotlight.
corey4
Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.
A. Fun fact about me is I love to play the drums. Music is my number one getaway. I also enjoy extreme sports like Motocross. I am what you call a rebel.  I love living on the edge.
Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?
A. I think the hardest role I’ve ever played was a short film called “0.2” and the reason why, it was my first role I ever did. What made it so hard was the fear of not knowing how it would turn out.
Corey5.png
Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?
A. The most fun role I have ever played was actually a starring extra role. I played a thug on a film called ” tattletale corpse ” it was so fun because everybody was such a delight to work with. We were laughing and having fun the whole time.
Q. Tell us about where you got your training?
A. I am a self-taught actor. At a very young age me and my friend used to write scripts and create our own films. We were always teaching each other and making each other grow further and further through our career. We used to study film like it was written in a book. We used to analyze every detail of film. I believe the best way to get experience is to actually get your hands dirty and experience everything about film.
corey3.png
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?
A. Never give up on your dreams. never listen to what anybody says. Film is love and if you can bring love to film then that’s all that matters. Always remember, no matter what anybody says, everybody is a critic. Never give up on your dreams because our dreams are all that we have. You are never too old and you are never too young to follow your dreams. If you love something , never stop chasing it.
Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?
A. If I was not an actor I would like to be a counselor or a motivational speaker. I would like to be a counselor because I believe everybody has problems and everybody needs guidance and love. No one is perfect and if someone can step into the picture and help save a life that’s all that matter to me. As for the motivational speaker part, I believe that if someone’s words can Inspire one person your job is done. I have faith in everyone and I believe that if you can spread love and help change the world then that’s all that matters in the long run.

Now let’s get to know Lisa Leonard!!!

lisa3
Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles? 
A. First I read the script so I can get an idea of the story.  I then mark my lines & record them so I can get them memorized as quickly as possible. The quicker I get them memorized, the faster I can start experimenting with my character.  I also look on Youtube to see if there are other videos of that character to see how other actors portray them (if the character has been done before) just to get a flow of the role.  Then I start researching different looks to get ideas of makeup & different looks I think the character would look like.  Once I’ve done this, I create a background story as to why that character turned out like they did.
Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?
A. I’m a big musical theater fan as well as, old movies so my favorite classic stars of the past are Judy Garland, James Stewart.  Current stars are Robert Downey, Jr., Meryl Streep, Mandy Patikin & many others.
lisa6
Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?
A. I’ve always wanted to do a voiceover for a full length animated or live action movie.  If I was doing a musical, my dream roles would be Mame, Golde from Fiddler on the Roof, any type of fun character role for a fantasy type movie or, a wacky neighbor or, mean villan that you love to hate. 🙂
Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?
A. It depends on the movie.  Villains are more fun to play because they’re more versatile but, I’ve played good guy roles too.  I really would have to say both depending on what the role was.
 
lisa2
Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.
A. I’ve been tandem skydiving a few years ago & really loved it!  Would do it again!
Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?
A. It was a mom role on an episode called “Dead of Night” on Discovery ID Channel where my daughter was murdered by her ex boyfriend.  I don’t have kids so I took that feeling of grief that I’ve had for loved ones & applied it to the mom role.
 
lisa4
Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?
A. Mrs. Potts from the play “Beauty & the Beast” and also the part of Dottie in a comedy film where I played a Southern Boutique owner of a store with misfit employees who I sold to someone else.
Q. Tell us about where you got your training?
A. Graduated with a BA in Music from Stetson University in DeLand, FL where I had classical vocal training.  Also took acting classes from a variety of teachers here & attended seminars as well.  I also learned from just performing on stage in theatres but, also doing independent films working with many types of people & directors.
lisa7
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?
A. Don’t give up on your dream & don’t listen to dream stealers!  Do what makes you happy.

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB…Yi Liu Christina

christina1

CROWLEY’S TOMB NEWS & CASTING:

The extremely talented actress Yi Liu Christina has been selected as the perfect actress to bring to life the ever so dangerous bounty hunter “Fudeng Dragon”.  Wanted Dead or Alive and the Dragon prefers dead and has a taste for killing the impossible Ghost of the Cemetery Boys. Don’t look now but she is right behind you in the ultimate game of Cat & Mouse…

christina2

Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles.

A. I like to live in my role, I like to dig into as much details of the background of the character as possible, so that I can become the character herself. My first real character was a drug-addicting teen in a play performed in my college, I spent weeks watching clips of famous actors depicting drug-addicting characters while at the same time gradually buried myself into the mood of the girl who lost hope of the world and blaming it on her divorced parents. When I first applied the role, the director didn’t trust me being able to do this role, but weeks later, I gave him a show that exceeded the girl he initially chose for the role. Funny thing is, after the show, lots of students in my college asked me if I have really been addicted to drug before, because it looked too real that it actually scared them 😛

christina6

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. I have many favorite actors, my first inspiration is Donny Yan. He gave me the inspiration to become a martial artist. But acting wise, my favorite is definitely Johnny Depp. I watched many Tim Burton movies during the years I grew up in China and loved all the characters Johnny Depp played while had no idea that it was the same actor until many years later (Due to the lack of internet when I was young, had no way to look up the cast). That to me is a real success as an actor: Not being limited to a certain type of roles, but has the ability to become anyone and deceiving the audiences’ eyes at the same time.

christina4

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A. My dream role has always been an extremely twisted character, a character that has exact opposite personalities in one body, one super innocent and sweet, the other extremely evil, all under the disguise of a nice girl. I have always been discovering different sides of myself in my journey of self-exploring, and I give all my personalities a soil to develop, so that when the opportunity comes, I can bring out the extremely contradictory personalities in a way of harmony.

christina3

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. Definitely villain! The beauty of being an actor to me, is to be able to live so many lives and looking at the world in different eyes, while other people only have one chance. Playing villain is so much fun to me because I get to let out a totally different me and be as creative as I can with it. To me, hero has its limits, a hero can only be so “hero”, but a villain has no limits, it can be as bad as you can imagine!

Christina5

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A. Zootopia is my favorite Disney movie in the recent 5 years. I have experienced almost all the difficulties Judy went through when she came to Zootopia to realize her dream. I came to America to pursue my master’s degree without knowing anyone in this country. Have been looked down upon because of my size, been taken as “exotic cute”, neighbor problems, been made fun of because of accent… You name a few. And by the end of the day, still need to look cheered up when calling the family. All those difficult times have become my fuel and when look back, they have all become heartwarming memories thanks to all the friends I made on the journey. And, I met my foxy Nick at Kung Fu temple.

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. I have not played many roles yet, but I would say the hardest role I have played was a small role when I was in a group participating the 48 hour film project. The whole 48-hour production is already super stressful, and there was no any information given about my character, I had to come up with a background setting for the role on the fly so that I can make the role a real person. I barely had any lines, but I was in shot a lot, so I had to be acting the whole time without instruction of what I was supposed to do. It was also my first time acting in front of camera, since my most experience before was stage play, I had to remind myself the whole time to not bring the stage acting style into the camera. But after all, it was a very precious learning experience.

Q. On the flip side, what was the the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. The most fun role in film I have ever played so far was one of the villains among a group of robbers. I was the most badass fighter among all the bad guys in that film, but the most fun part was actually not the fighting part, but the part when I got killed. I had a lot fun portraying a death from trachea been broken, all the chokings, struggles, and eventually a painful death gave me a chance to fully utilize not only my acting skill but also my medical knowledge

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. I didn’t have formal training in acting, just joined the acting club in college and was trained by the professor in charge of the club. But life actually gave me more training on acting more than anything. As of martial arts training, I had three years in Taekwondo when I was in China, achieved black belt. Picked up Kung fu again after I moved to Orlando.

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Me myself is still an aspiring actor, still learning and growing, still have a long way to go. I just want to encourage all my fellow mates, don’t give up, no matter how many times you got rejected at audition, just keep on trying, and keep on sharpening yourself on the go!

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A. I am actually a research engineer as of my full time job. I have to be able to feed myself before I can pursue my passion 😛 I am also an artist on the side, learned painting for more than 10 years. I love to branch into different professions and challenge my creativity.
