Reading of "The Great Despair"
I had the distinct pleasure of participating in a reading of Ela Thier's new feature-length screenplay, "The Great Despair," today.
Ela has written another beautiful script, which is both funny and moving, and so expressive of her unique voice.
AND - she's written an amazing part for herself to play.
I was moved by the piece, and it was terrific to read the script with a number of friends, including Nabil Vinas, who was in my short film, "Top of the World," and whose acting class I'm currently taking, Matthew Murumba, who was in my short film "The Muse," and Memo, with whom I've worked in the Lab for a couple years. Also Ela's sister Daphna Thier, who is a new Lab actor, was in it. We had a great scene together.
The plans are to shoot this film in the next couple of months. Very exciting!
