Project: Amma’s Ashes, a short film

"Amma's Ashes" was just selected by the Access Sacramento film studio as one of 10 screenplays to be produced this summer for the Place Called Sacramento Film Festival. 

We're looking for South Asian women, men and teens, including one genderqueer teen/young adult actor. 
 

There is no pay at this tome, but if you're traveling to Sacramento from out of town for the shoot, we can compensate for gas expenses. We can offer the chance to work with some of Sacramento's top professionals in a down-to-earth and supportive creative environment, as well as a movie credit. The film will be submitted to the festival circuit, and developed as a television series. 

Here's a synopsis of "Amma's Ashes, or Mystery at the Sacramento River":

Project: Play Paine

Thomas Paine’s Bones--a well-received script for a one-man-show. With Paine’s wit, it shows how his personal life and turbulent times lead to his memorable accomplishments. Albeit a hero to many, Paine was controversial then and remains so today—great for publicity. The script has won some accolades. The monolog is 70 min (the feature length 120 min). A public showing and tour, covid permitting. Plus an online video with ad revenue. Leading to an epic or mini-series on Netflix or one of its competitors.
Star of The American Rebellion who became the first World Citizen. They called it The Age of Paine, they yet wanted America’s founder dead. This Founding Father coined of the phrase, “the United States of America”. His book Common Sense not only spurred the colonials to rebel, his American Crisis kept them in their revolution during its darkest hours. His writings sold hundreds of thousands copies when just a few thousand was considered a runaway success—the first bestsellers in the English language. Ben Franklin and a Belgian princess became friends. Napoleon lauded him over dinner, praising his book, Rights of Man. Paine campaigned against slavery and for Indians when it was unpopular to do so. He donated his proceeds to the needy and other worthy causes. In prison, his spirit consoled others condemned to die. The popularity of his Age of Reason spurred Christians into a movement for reform. A conscience matched by brains: his economic predictions came true, and the unique bridge he designed stood for centuries.
