Eric Balfour Exclusive Interview Do Not Disturb

In the independent feature Do Not Disturb, five directors took on five short stories, all tied together in one dark, humorous film about what goes on behind the door of hotel room 316, and the maid who connects all of the stories together. Actor Eric Balfour, who appears in the segment entitled “Rocketman” opposite True Blood star Lindsay Pulsipher, makes his feature directorial debut with the film’s first segment, “Duccio’s Madonna,” a dark drama about a lonely man (Harris Goldberg) that pushes a hooker (Maureen Flannigan) too far, only to find an eager maid (Diva Zappa) happy to help him finish the job. With little time for preparation, each director was given a brief synopsis and one day on set to tell their story, all of which was overseen by producer Mali Elfman (who also appears in two of the film’s segments), giving it a truly collaborative feel.

Corbin Bernsen to Direct 25 Hill

Corbin Bernsen to direct family film Actor-turned-indie director Corbin Bernsen has signed on to direct 25 Hill, which centers on an 11-year-old boy whose derby dreams are left in pieces when his soldier father is killed in Afghanistan. The boy teams up with a father figure whose own son, a firefighter, died in the line of duty, and the two help each other find redemption and revive the derby.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the family-friendly production is budgeted for about $500,000. In September, Bernsen read an article in USA Today about how the derby had a debt of $623,000 with a local bank and was facing extinction. Bernsen aims to save the nearly 75-year-old racing league, the All-American Soap Box Derby.

"The derby used to be this huge event; 50,000 people used to show up, and Chevrolet was a huge sponsor," Bernsen said Monday from his production offices in Akron. "But the times,
