Me, Him and a guy named Tim

     “I have worked on set with some of the crew members when shooting the 'Spin' project, but many are new and so welcomed.  This film’s cast and crew come from all over including beautiful Kingston, NY.  Stephen Tenner (President of Stella's Productions/Kingston) is a close friend and was also my co-producer on "Spin Slowly."  He always brings his production A-game to set and when he and I collaborate to co-produce, we have an umbrella production company called "StellaJayne Films."  Peter Tirc is my key grip and my 'right-hand man'.  I can always feel relaxed when he's on set.  The fact that he owns a very reputable contracting business (Complete Home Revival) makes him a huge help with set construction as well.  Ken Jubie has joined the team for the series.  He is my Assistant Director coming loaded with audio/video experience as he is currently employed with the media department at Siena College.  Lisa J. Rey is on board as Script Supervisor controlling continuity and Erika Neal is a familiar face from 'Spin' and a pleasure to have on set as a P.A.  The women on crew handling the beauty (Hair, Make up and Wardrobe) consist of Tania Amrod (from Dream Bride), Reflexologist Bernadette Palumbo, Lakshmi Satya-Devi and Marcie Bovee.  We also have a great on set still photographer returning to our set in Maryann Witkowski.  Most of the rest of the crew are either interns or new to my set and I am excited to begin this project with them.  The cast is excellent!  Jill Knell is my lead and a very seasoned actress.  I couldn't be happier with my choice for Casandra (present).  Nicole Signore, who plays Casandra (past), was in "Spin Slowly" and it is always a pleasure to work with talent like her.  She is definitely on her way to big things in her craft.  This is the first time I will have the opportunity to work with Leah Lane, but there is no doubt she has the look and feel for the Celeste role and I am excited for the opportunity to watch her perform.  This first episode "Beauty is Skin Deep" also has a great supporting cast featuring the talents of experienced actor Kevin Craig West (this summer see Kevin play opposite Eva Mendes and Dane DeHaan in Derek Cianfrance's, “The Place Beyond The Pines”).  The cast also includes talented actor/comedian John Tobin (formerly of "The Coop and Tobin show) as well as newbies David Lee Howells, Frankie Witkowski and William Hughes.  The remaining spots have been filled with casting calls.  I am very excited about this project and the talented people I have assembled to work with.  I feel truly blessed surrounded by such GREAT people!  Also, there is really no more beautiful area to shoot film than in the Hudson Valley; my home.  Thank you!”  T. George McArdle
