A small taste of whats to come:

Let’s get to know a little more about Anthony!

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. When preparing for a new role I like to do extensive research on my character, I want to find out what makes then tick, what makes then laugh, how they react to certain situations. I want to get into the characters head so much, I become the them! I hear story’s about people who have to stay in character for months at a time so they don’t loose it. Personally I have no problem getting in and out of character while on set or at home.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Its difficult to breakdown my favorite actor into just a single person! I think Denzel Washington had the greatest emotion of any actor. Leonardo DiCaprio can get into a character better than any actor I’ve ever seen. And Tom Hanks is just all around AMAZING!
Anthony3
Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?
A. A dream role for me would be would be someone with duel personalities. I really like the idea of playing multiple characters in the same movie and showing off my talents. I would also like to play a sadistic serial killer type. Let my crazy come out! The crazier and freakier the role, the better. Someone like the Joker, or any character from Rob Zombie’s films!
Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?
 A. I am a villain at heart! I will always prefer to play “the bad guy”! The hero is to easy and its always the same story… The villain gets to have all the fun! He gets the bad girls! The villain gets to do what ever he wants where the hero follows all the rules.
Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.
A. A fun fact about myself…. I did a commercial for Hydroxycut out in LA and lost 33 pounds!
Anthony4
Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?
A. Honestly I haven’t played a role that was overly difficult yet! I imagine playing Zombie will be my greatest and most difficult role to play!
Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?
 A. I played the role of a heartbroken ex boyfriend trying to get his girl back, that was fun. Mostly because all of the kissing and heavy petting scenes!
A sample of Anthony’s work-
Q. Tell us about where you got your training?
A. I took acting classes throughout middle and high school and attended The Naples Players acting school as well.
Anthony2
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?
A. Don’t give up on your dreams! I’m still chasing mine.
Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?
A. I would actually prefer to write and direct movies! The acting is secondary to that! My dream is to make movies of my own. I have so much information in my head I would like to put on paper I could probably make 4 movies right off the back! I just need somebody to write while I talk… I hate sitting for long periods of time!

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!

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?

Taking on any role is like living another life.  Once script is received, I begin to study it as if it were a graduation test and with out success I can’t excel.  Living my regular life as the character before the shoot is the best way to show a true feel for the character.  If it’s possible , to study the character if applicable.  Acting out scenes in current life situations and making the role a part of your daily routine.  Becoming the character practicing emotion, stress and response in body language is all in part becoming the character.

Q.  Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. My favorite actor is Denzel Washington  and Lawrence Fishburn.  Their ability to come to life in their roles as actors is chilling.

My advocacy to play the role is my life.

A. Being the legacy and grandson of BB King, my world is built from the relevancy and success of my efforts.

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

Chandy Krapes_1

Q.  Not yet having seen the script, as an actor how do you prepare/research your role?

A.  Not having seen the script as of yet does make it more challenging! I inquire from the writer as to who my character is; seductive, innocent, brazen…then I work on making that character me as much as possible.

Q.  Given what you know from the cast & crew posts about CT, what and/or who are you most interested in seeing in the film?

A.  I can’t say that I have any favorites at this time. I am excited to see every member of the cast and watch in awe as they bring the characters to life and make them their own. I am proud to be a part of the cast and cannot wait until I get to see the creativity, special effects, and the massive amount of skill that will be shown through all involved.

Q.  What was the single-most influential event in your lifetime?

A.  I would have to say without a doubt the single-most influential event in my life was the day I met my husband. I believe each person has someone who is meant for them and I feel extremely fortunate that I found mine! My husband is my soul mate, my best friend, confidante, and partner. I would not be complete without him, he makes me whole.

Q.  Do you have a favorite season?

A.  My favorite season is Summer. I guess I am right where I belong, here in sunny Florida!

Q.  Have you ever been on the radio or TV?  Details please

A.  I have been on TV. I was in Devious Maids as a Cocktail Party Guest, The Carrie Diaries as a Wedding Guest, The Secret Circle as a Casino Hostess, and 90210 as a Staff Member. They were not big parts, however, it was quite an experience acting in a popular television series.

Chandy Krapes_2

Q.  What’s the one piece of advice you would give others about life

A.  Our mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.

A.  I am pretty boring when it comes to pizza toppings…I like Pepperoni and Black Olives. I will eat other toppings, however, those are my favorites. My husband just crinkles his nose at me when I order pizza and he does not have to guess at what I will order!

A Moment with Crowley’s Tomb…Sher Shearey

Sher Shearey B&W.jpg

Crowley’s Tomb is beyond thrilled to announce that actress Sher Shearey has accepted a key role as the “Demonic Messenger Eve” better known as the Red Angel. Sher will also assist the project as a Gothic Technical Advisor. Film production begins summer of 2017.

We took a moment to catch up with her and wanted to share a little of Sher;

Q. Given what you know from the cast & crew posts about Crowley’s Tomb, what are you most interested in seeing in the film?

 A: Creativity and innovation of each cast. It’s always cool to see how each person takes their role of the character(s) of what they’ve been casted as and bring them to life. Acting really brings out the captivation of the audience in seeing the dynamics that each actor/actress is willing to bring out and the risks that they take in stepping outside of the box and their comfort zone.

Q. Not yet having seen the script, as an actor, how do you prepare/research your role?

A: Any role that I come across, I already have a vision has to how I want to make that character come to life after I have read the script. Depending what type of role I receive, some roles I will research other actors/actresses out there to see how they have perceived that particular role if need to be and study them. From there, I take that knowledge and create that research into my own.

There are roles out there that I go off of what I feel after I have read the script and have a feel for what the director is looking for. Stepping on set, however, is a totally different aspect. When I start the official scene with my co-star(s), I work off what there presenting. When you and your other co-star(s) have that great chemistry, the scene(s) come out captivating.

Fun Facts

What is the one thing in this world that you are most proud of?

       A: I am proud of over coming depression that I encountered myself in in 2010. Depression for a lot doesn’t end up good in the end sometimes. We all hear it in the news of celebrities or from friends and family of ones that have battled depression or are going through it and the road that it takes them down to at times. No one helped me out. I pushed myself to not let it fully take me over nor let it take me to where I knew that I was headed. I’ve encountered many obstacles and pain with depression, however, the person that I have become and the accomplishments I have made show me that I am able to overcome anything.

Do you enjoy exercise, yoga or mediation?

       A: Fitness has become a big part of my life. The gym and the weights are my mediation, along with outdoor activities that keep me active. When I lift, I feel that strength that I have built so far and what I know that my body is capable of doing. I maintain a healthy lifestyle not only for myself but also with working in the industry for my current and future roles as well. Working out is not only a stress reliever for me but also a way to clear my mind and continue to increase my badass side.

What’s the one piece of advice you would give to others?

       A: It doesn’t matter if you have ten bucks in your bank account or ten million sitting in there. Were all the same. We’ve all started out at rock bottom and moved our way up to our goals or are still achieving them. Remain humble and selfless. It’s going to take you far in life.

Who would play you in the movie adaptation of your life?

       A: Michelle Rodriguez. I absolutely love her because she is a total badass. That is all.

Do you have a favorite season?

       A: Winter. I love skiing, snowmobiling, having snowball fights, etc. I live in Florida. Perfect!
