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… 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.

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.

A Moment With Crowley’s Tomb… Justin Larsche

Justin14

CROWLEY’S TOMB NEWS & CASTING UPDATES:
I am extremely proud to announce that actor Justin Larsche has landed the lead role as the conflicted Cemetery Boy George St. Louie, better know as “Preacher”.  Justin will also play a slew of evil characters which I will not reveal at this time. There is no other actor I trust more!!  He truly is the “Blessed Hell Rider”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWWpZDsN2Ao      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMpf-Syar8w

Justin L12

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

A- Well since I’ve done more theatre then film I’ll start there. First I get my script read it all the way through. Then I really focus on learning my lines, I’ll find the character more in rehearsal. I read over a scene a few times so I understand what my character is talking about then record myself so I can listen to it at any chance I get throughout the day. Once the words are in my head I can go to rehearsal without trying to act while reading and really discover who I am trying to portray. Being a lover of music I figure who does this character listen to? After that I will listen to an artist or music style through all rehearsal and run time. From there I just feed off of the director, the cast and whatever feels natural to the character. The one film I’ve done I only had a week to prep and no lines in the script. Lucky the director was willing to let me try some improv which turned out pretty crazy seeing how I was playing a sick sadomasochistic Russian mobster. Villains are always easier to play but we will get to that later.

justin18.

Q- Who is your favorite actor and why?

A- No way, I could ever have one favorite actor! But here’s maybe my top three: Heath Ledger-not just cause he was the best joker ever!! And yes, that is my favorite of his performances. The things that Ledger could do from one movie to the next from being the best hero to the most evil villain just showed his amazing versatility. He went way too soon! I think he had a lot more to offer us in my opinion! Gary Oldman- because this man is a true chameleon! Fans will never see him do the same thing twice! I mean from Jim Gordon to the pimp in True Romance to Count Dracula I mean need I say more!? Leonardo DiCaprio-because the man is dedicated to his roles goes full into character we are talking about a man who split his had open in the middle of a scene and ran with it even deciding to wipe the blood on another character’s face! That’s just brave acting!!

Justin20.

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

A- Dream role would be the Joker on the big screen. It’s a character very dear to me that I have portrayed many times but to do it officially on set would blow my mind! I would bring to it my own inspirations from all the material out there and I surely would put my own original flare and twists to it. After that I would go to town!

Justin L4.

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

A-Hero or villain hummm, well a few years ago I’d say villain, villain, and villain again! But I find the hero to be more of a challenge honestly. I like a challenge but my God the villain certainly is fun to play!!! I think we shall call this a 50/50 heads or tails proposition.

Justin2.

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

A- I’m a total superhero geek but if you saw my FACEBOOK page you would quickly figure it out!

Justin L8.

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

A- The hardest role I ever played was Justin Larsche’s real life. Acting is only hard if you let it. But if that’s not the answer you’re quite looking for then I’d say Larry from Patrick Marbers Closer. It was my first onstage production. It was 10 of 12 scenes and a few of those scenes were very emotionally driven!

Justin L11

QOn the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A- I’d have to say also Larry from Closer though it was an emotional rollercoaster. It was an experience like I’ve never had before and that’s hard to top!

Justin L6.

Q-Tell us about where you got your training?

A- I got my training from sitting on my ass watching tons of TV. Sound like a joke? It’s not!!! I didn’t realize I was acting my whole life through TV and movies. I study the great actors and their performances over and over wanting to do what they were doing. I also studied bad actors and I learned over time what not to do! I work very hard memorizing movie lines until it comes natural to me. I would also work on body movements and I would stare in the mirror for hours practicing facial expressions. Now I’m training by working, doing theater, character gigs and whatever gets me that much closer to doing what I love!

Justin L10.

Q- What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-Take every risk you can but make sure you have another way to make a living cause this is a very hard game to make money at!!

justin23.

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

A- Well I’ve done pool construction for the past 15 years, soooooo not that!!!  I just want to be in the entertainment field if not an actor then a director, a performer, a promoter, a producer or anyone that can provide great entertainment to people!!

A Moment With Crowleys Tomb…Brandon Clark

Brandon Clark8.

CROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES: Today I am excited to announce that actor Brandon Clark has landed the role as badass Cemetery Boy Casey Lesnar better known as “Maverick”. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Brandon Clark2.

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

A-  For me it’s all about doing the preparation before arriving on the set. It’s about researching the script, books, magazines and anything else that has relevancy to the production. You learn particular choices the character makes and you dig deeper to find out why they made those choices. What was their motivation or goals for that particular choice or scene? It’s all about finding out where they have been. What their past was, how it truly affected them. What really fascinates me is figuring out what the characters immediate goal is all about and discovering what the ultimate goal is at the end. This is the research that I have done for every character I have ever performed whether it was on stage, or in front of the camera.  After research it’s all about developing your character. I think more importantly though you have to search inside yourself to see what you as an individual can bring to your character. I think that you learn from past experiences in life and you tap into your emotional state at that time. I think it’s very important to bring life experiences that are relevant to your character. However, transitioning to being on set can be the most difficult for some actors. It can be nerve racking and scary for many actors but again, this is where the research and development comes into play. By being prepared, now you have an arsenal of options to perform on camera and the one thing directors love the most is having multiple options on how to perform the character and bring him to life.

Brandon Clark3.

 Q- Who is your favorite actor and why?

A- My favorite actor is by far “Bryan Cranston”. I first loved watching him in “Malcolm in the Middle” but then when the show “Breaking Bad” aired I was in amazement of his acting skills. He has some of the most incredible emotional ranges and to be able to show them without hesitation on camera is truly a feat. He is by far one of the best actors in entertainment today.

Brandon Clark9.

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

A- My dream role one day would be able to play a superhero on screen. I believe with what I have gone through in my life gives me an emotional depth and range where audiences can relate much more than just watching super heroes battle and fight. Sometimes Heroes don’t always wear capes.

Brandon Clark1.

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

A- I will always prefer to play the Hero. It’s about their nobility, courage, and sacrifices they have to give which resonates with me. However playing a villain once or twice would be extremely fun.

Brandon Clark4.

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

A- A fun fact is that I LOVE to go to Theme parks. I actually own many annual passes to the great parks in Florida such as Disney World, Universal and Busch Gardens and I like to go as often as I can. I feel free and it helps me escape and be a kid again.

Brandon Clark7.

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

A- The hardest role that I’ve performed has to be when I was cast as Prospero in Shakespeare’s, The Tempest. Memorizing and portraying Thousands of lines of Shakespeare dialogue was definitely the biggest challenge I’ve ever had to face especially since it was when I was a bit younger and didn’t have the knowledge that I do now.

Brandon Clark10   

QOn the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A- My most fun role definitely has to be when I played Seal O’Neal in American Warships. That entire production was a blast from getting to meet Carl Weathers. It was the first time working on a green screen and also getting to kill aliens; it couldn’t have been much better.

Brandon Clark6.

Q-Tell us about where you got your training?

A- I trained at the University of North Carolina Wilmington where I received my B.A in Theater Arts while also doubling down with minors in Economics and Spanish. After graduating I also went and studied at the NC School of the Arts where I trained in stage combat from the Society of American Fight Directors.

Brandon Clark5.

Q- What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-My advice for aspiring actors is to create as many connections as possible!! Take any gig that comes your way even if it’s just background work and don’t stop pushing for your craft. This industry is relentless and you will learn quickly that you have to have very thick skin to succeed. You might get turned down hundreds of times in auditions but those are opportunities to improve, not times to get down on yourself.

Brandon Clark Maverick

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

A-The profession I would choose is without a doubt to be a Personal Trainer. I’m actually already working towards that goal by taking online classes to get my certification but since I was young I’ve always had an affinity for fitness and it’s something that I will continue to do my entire life.

A Moment With Crowley’s Tomb… Taylor Crumbley

 

 

Taylor CrumbleyCROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES:
I am thrilled to announce actress Taylor Crumbley has landed multiple roles such as the seductive Gothic Vampire “Raven”, Gothic Ghost Hooker, Evil Demon and one of the Cemetery Boys Girlfriends. 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-   The key to any kind of good acting is really knowing the character in your head. It’s easy to assume a character is one dimensional like the mean preppy girl or evil stepmom, etc. But nobody in real life is that simple. You have to really understand every side of how your character feels and reacts to be able to really portray them well. If there isn’t a story behind them, create one. As for researching, look up characters you think are similar, ask the writer how they view the character, and if it’s based on a book READ IT. The more you know, the better your character will be. Once on set I know things can get pretty goofy behind scenes but if there’s something emotional or big coming up its best to stay in character even when the cameras aren’t rolling because it really puts you in their mindset. It’s almost like you’re not acting anymore, but you’ve become that person.

Taylor Crumbley2. Q-  Who is your favorite actor and why?

A-   I have many but one of my all time favorites is Charlize Theron. I admire her level of commitment so much. Most people know her for her lighter work like in the Huntsman movies but if you watch her in that and then in the movie Monster, it’s like she’s not even the same actress. You can’t even recognize her. She did tons of research and really committed her whole body to that role and there is no better way of acting than that.

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

A-   I would really love to star in a drama. I love showing emotion and getting really intense. Films that really show a persons life and real human emotions and situations are incredible to me and I’d love to be a part of something like that.

Taylor Crumbley7. Q-  Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A –  Ha! Ha!! As much as I love the thought of the audience rooting for me in a film, I love playing the villain. They just always seem much more complex and in all honesty are much more fun to play. 😈

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

A-   When I was younger I actually dyed my hair brown because I never saw actresses with red hair. I thought I’d never get any work that way and since I’ve gone back natural I’ve gotten 10 times as many call backs. That actually really built my confidence and taught me never to doubt yourself.

Taylor Crumbley4. Q-  What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A-    I played a villain named insanity and I think that role was hardest because I had to become so emotionally unstable that I really seemed insane. She wasn’t just a mean villain, she blamed the hero for her deformities, and i felt that deep in the character she really yearned to be like the hero. So it was interesting to learn how to portray all those different things in such a short time. Plus it was my first time doing fights scenes and I had a lot of learning to do. Ha! Ha!

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

A-   Being a bloodsucker! I was a vampire named Valerie and that was fun because I think vampires are the perfect mix of evil and sexy. So you get to just be smug and awesome. We ended making our own fake blood which was interesting to say the least. And messy. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Q-  Tell us about where you got your training?

A-   Honestly I haven’t had much formal training besides my high school drama classes. I get most of my techniques from watching interviews of other actors and reading the articles on Backstage. I’ve been acting my whole life. I started out putting on plays for my neighbors (I have 8 siblings so it was easy to cast the shows 😝) and then just moved up from there. But there is always more to learn.

Taylor Crumbley5.
Q-  What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-   Dedicate yourself and don’t give up. You’re going to hear just as many “no”s as you are “yes”s. Maybe even more. But hard work does really pay off. The more people see your commitment, the more opportunities you’ll receive.

taylor crumbley6.
Q-  If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A-   I’m actually a business major so I’m hoping to one day run my own company. That is if I don’t become a movie star. Haha. I’ve just always been good at things like that and I’m pretty independent so I don’t see myself working for other people the rest of my life.

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB…JIMMY MANFREDY

I am very, very excited to announce that actor Jimmy Manfredy has accepted such multiple roles as Detective Bloom, Evil Clown, and Druid Monk just to name a few. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Jimmy Manfredy1.

Today we finally caught up to the very busy actor & Sifu  Jimmy Manfredy…

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-  My process is fairly simple, I read everything written for my characters in the script and break down why this person would think the way they do and acts the way they do, all the way down to what their speech pattern might be.  Then I go out into the world to find similar things in everyday people and use that as building tools for the persona I need to portray.

Q-  Who is your favorite actor and why? 

A-   Robin Williams:  I’ve always loved his ability to bring joy to everyone by using his imagination.

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

A-    My dream role I’m a little to old for now, I always wanted to play Peter Parker AKA Spiderman…lol

Jimmy Manfredy3.

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

A-    I prefer the hero. I grew up rough and I’ve always wanted to help people no matter how bad the situation, so I like to project that kind of positivity. However I don’t mind villain roles because they always need to make the hero look like one…lol

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

 A-    I am a Die hard “Power Ranger Fan” especially the original Green Ranger Tommy  played by Jason David Frank….lol

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

A-     I played the role of Sam Knight in a film called “Always Live Laugh Love”, that role was the hardest because my brother in the film was dying of cancer which hit close to home for me, my Father and Grandmother passed away in 2009 and 2010 from cancer, so it brought back a lot of painful memories.

Jimmy Manfredy5.

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

A-     My favorite role so far has to be my recent role in the film “Read Between The Lines” an action comedy where I play Jimmy an undercover DEA agent with a very anxious partner. It was a fun and playful role to play while also doing the fight/stunt coordination for. I loved working with everyone involved.

Jimmy Manfredy2.

Q-    Tell us about where you got your training?

A-    My first experience in acting was with my high school theatre arts class and clubs. I also received personal acting training from my good friend Thomas Altman production Manager for the Winter Haven, FL theatre and the many wonderful coaches there. Since I’ve been a life long martial artist I also tried my hand in stunt work and I absolutely loved it. I really enjoy having the ability  to use my Martial Arts skills to create amazing fight sequences to tell a physical story to go along with the dialogue. For me it was a dream com true. In addition I sought out the guidance and trained with my good friends, veteran Hollywood Directors, Actors, Stuntmen, Stunt/Fight Coordinators Art Camacho and John Kreng, both of these men have been a wealth of knowledge and great mentors..

Q-   What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-   Find as many like minded positive people to surround yourself with and seek out every possible source of information that will help you achieve your goals and never give up no matter what anyone says!

Jimmy Manfredy4.
