I happen to have been an Uncredited Actor in this film-I played one of The LAPD Officers in the scene where we shut "The Pool Party" down.
Admittedly, because I appear in this film, I might be biased in favor of this production, but I think that this is a wonderfully produced, directed and written work.
The actors took the filming of this movie very seriously! Everyone was as professional as anyone on any set that I've ever been on! I worked most closely with Les Feltmate, (The Other Police Officer,) Lindsey Haun, (Jewel,) Stephanie Dyann, (Kara,) Nate Parker, (Rome,) Cole Griffin, (Jay,) Russel Howard, (Perry,) and a host of very young Extras. Everyone was great on this set and I have extremely fond memories of working on this film last August and Sept.
Working with Director Charlie Kanganis was a distinct pleasure! Charlie is a very intense, yet a personable and fair director with an extraordinary eye for detail. One of my favorite memories is when he took the 78 pound, 35mm film camera on his' own shoulder to demonstrate what he wanted done in one particular shot. He was awesome to work with and I would like to work with him again someday.
I happen to have had three films playing in The Film Festivals this year, but of all, "Rome And Jewel" was the best and it was my only full-length feature in the festivals this year.
Furthermore, this movie was done on a very tight budget. I thought that with our budget that this turned out to be a very good looking film! Of course, it isn't Oscar-worthy, it wasn't mean't to be such a film. This is more of a film with a message and I hope that it's message is understood and heeded to by today's young people.
See this film! Don't see it because we worked hard to make it, but because it's a good movie, it is entertaining and the message against racial bigotry is strong and it is a good lesson for all audiences that prejudice can lead to extraordinary tragedies. This is a message that is timely even in the early 21st Century.
