Sarah 2015_0040

The role Sarah played in UNWAVERING was Eva. Eva is one of the girls in captivity. In our first film, Gretchen’s Lock, Sarah played the infamous role of Gretchen and did a wonderful job. We knew we wanted her to be a part of UNWAVERING and she gave life to the role she played.

Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 5.16.09 AM

Here are the questions we asked Sarah:

MPF: What was your favorite part of filming for UNWAVERING?

Sarah: My favorite part of filming Unwavering was when we had to run out of the building and out to the back from the bad guys to get away as fast and quiet and possible. It was very heart pounding.

MPF: What’s your favorite role you’ve ever played?

Sarah: My favorite role I ever played in a film was Gretchen in Gretchen’s Lock.

MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?

Sarah: Melissa McCarthy inspires me as an actress.

MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Sarah: The Great Gatsby

MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?

Sarah: My hobbies are crafting, reading and acting.

MPF: What made you interested in acting?

Sarah: I’ve always wanted to be in movies and TV shows even when I was little. I looked up to Disney characters and always dreamed of staring on Disney Channel. When I entered the 9th grade I discovered the Speech and Debate team and I found my inner actor. It’s one of my most favorable memories. 

MPF: Favorite color?

Sarah: My favorite color is Pink!

MPF: Who is your favorite character in the UNWAVERING film?

Sarah: My favorite character in the UWAVERING film would have to be Sarah. She really is tested a lot throughout the film and it was amazing to see her act.

MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?

Sarah: My advice to anyone interested in acting to follow their dreams. Even if it may seem impossible, it’s not. You’re dreams can always become a reality.

Emily Geary | Actor Highlight | Meet the Cast | UNWAVERING

Today on the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series we are featuring Emily Geary.

The role Emily played in UNWAVERING was Brittany. Brittany’s character is the stereotypical snobby, stuck up blonde that tries to get Sarah to follow in her questionable behavior. Emily is very sweet and sincere and nothing like this in real life. However, when she auditioned for the role she transformed into quite the vixen. She did a phenomenal job and truly brought her character to life!

Emily is involved with modeling and film projects and has been featured in music videos, fashion shows, independent films, and the hit TV series Outsiders. You learn more about Emily by visiting her website: Model Emily Geary

Here are the questions we asked Emily:

MPF: What was your favorite part of filming for UNWAVERING?

Emily: I really loved filming the prom scene for Unwavering.  It was a lot of fun spending the day with the glam squad and getting ready with Katie.  It really felt like we were in high school again, getting to go to prom all over!

MPF: What’s your favorite role you’ve ever played?

Emily: Playing a core background character for two seasons on Outsiders, on WGN America, has been my favorite role to date.  I’ve spent so much time on set with the cast and crew that we’ve really become a little family.

MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?

Emily: Margot Robbie.  I watched an interview once about her audition for The Wolf of Wall Street.  She said she knew she needed to do something to really stand out when she got a call back.  In the heat of the moment she slapped Leonardo DiCaprio in the face.  She said she couldn’t believe she hit him in the face and thought she was going to get arrested.  It takes some serious passion for the business to hit such a huge star in the face.  The fact that she had the guts to do that is simply amazing to me. She was basically an overnight sensation and her work proves why.

MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Emily: Pretty Woman.  I’m just obsessed with it, I’ve probably seen the movie a thousand times and I know all the lines.

MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?

Emily: Acting and reading.

MPF: What made you interested in acting?

Emily: I started out modeling which led me to be cast as an extra in a few films, I immediately fell in love with being on set.  I just knew it was something I wanted to pursue further.

MPF: Favorite color?

Emily: White! (Pretty sure it hasn’t changed since my last interview for Gretchen’s Lock lol)

MPF: Who is your favorite character in the UNWAVERING film?
Emily: Sarah, just wait for the film and you’ll understand why.  Her strength and faith is admirable.

MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?

Emily: Never give up on your dreams and work as hard as you can to achieve them. The process may be tough, but the result is worth it.

Thank you, Emily, for your great performance! To see Emily in UNWAVERING you can get tickets for the Grand Premiere here: UNWAVERING Grand Premiere

The role Randy played in UNWAVERING was the mayor. Randy was great to have on set. Even during rehearsals he offered a few different approaches to the role to align with the vision we had.

Randy Campbell | Actor Highlight | Meet the Cast | UNWAVERING

Today on the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series we are featuring the great Randy Campbell.

https://scontent.fagc1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/1468669_790236777773963_4157228141949648575_n.jpg?oh=629d2abbe7962165c6d8f37f57e32356&oe=592DD224

The role Randy played in UNWAVERING was the Preacher. Randy has a unique look and showed up to the audition with a suit and hat just like the headshot above. I didn’t have any specific type of preacher I was looking forward so I kept the role fairly open. As Randy began auditioning I pictured him preaching at a Southern Baptist church somewhere out in the country of Georgia. I loved that feel! Especially since we were going to film the baptism scene out in the country by a lake in Columbiana, Ohio.

Randy has had much involvement with local films and WGN America’s Outsiders. His charisma goes beyond the screen as he arrives mostly 1-2 hours early before every event to connect with the cast and crew members, and he is usually sitting outside of his car playing the guitar to pass the time before anyone else arrives.

Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 5.12.34 AM

Here are the questions we asked Randy:

MPF: What was your favorite part of filming for UNWAVERING?

Randy: My favorite part of filming was how EVERYONE worked together to (make/let) each individual expand themselves to their fruition. In front as well as behind camera. It didn’t hurt my ego either that a very pretty young lady trusted me not to slip & drown her. Thanks Katie!

MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?

Randy: All actors inspire me even if they don’t have the skill to act. The love of doing & breaking beyond fear; inspiring yes.

MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Randy: Favorite Movie! Hard to say, I love so many. The Hobbit animated & live action ones & Darby O’Gill & the Little People. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Stargate, Original Star Wars, E.T., Wizard of Oz original & new and so on!

MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?

Randy: Playing guitar, writing various things, painting, T-shirt designs, anything creative actually, exploring nature & weird places, creating with my hands, expanding my talents, Construction Mechanics, auto repair & restore, and doodling.

MPF: What made you interested in acting?

Randy: Acting is in my blood from playing house as a child with the girls, or super heroes or ARMY with the guys (& girls) to kn-itching out my place in the world and adjusting to new situations as a teen to maturity. Even as a father & husband.

MPF: Favorite color?

Randy: Favorite color has always been green. Must just be muh Irish a manifesting.

MPF: Who is your favorite character in the UNWAVERING film?

Randy: …PREACHER. Just loved being allowed to give him character. Gran’dad was a Preacher in the day. Never saw him preach as but spent many a day at his side after giving it up. The Preacher came out from time to time.

MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?

Randy: Learn about everything. All is fodder for the stage. Read tech manuals, medical journals, and law books out loud. Learn to speak the jargon well even if you have no idea what it means. The better you can articulate the easier it is to land great roles. It’s easy to talk bumpkin but speaking as the educated can’t be faked. Above all else follow whats in your heart; it’s okay to be small in what you do. Sometimes it’s the small things that touch the greatest audience. There is a star placed in all of us, don’t let others dim your shine! JUST SHINE BABY SHINE!

Emily Rusu | Actor Highlight | Meet the Cast | UNWAVERING

Today we continue with the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series with Emily Rusu.

EmilyHeadshotThe role Emily played in UNWAVERING was Tara, another girl that was in captivity. Emily brought forth her own personality to the character and changed the dynamic between the girls which was great. Emily’s passion and willingness to do anything to help out the production made her a great asset to UNWAVERING.

Emily and her husband, Bill, who helped on UNWAVERING as a grip, film incredible wedding videos and own Jet Wedding Videography, and Emily is part owner of Jet Creative which is a marketing and design company based in Youngstown, Ohio.

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 5.13.28 AMHere are the questions we asked Emily:

MPF: What was your favorite part of filming for UNWAVERING?

Emily: My favorite scene to shoot was the last scene. It was shot very late at night on the forth day of shooting, so we were all a little silly from being sleep deprived! I don’t want to give too much away about the last scene though 😉

MPF: What’s your favorite role you’ve ever played?

Emily: I was a TV personality for a couple of years on a local children’s show, Homework Express. I got to act silly multiple times a week. My segment was “Word of the Day”, which is exactly what it sounds. I’d take a weird word from the dictionary and define it, doing more than just read the definition. However, my role in Unwavering was the longest and most intense role I’ve had, so that’s up there!

MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?

Emily: I have a lot of favorite actors, it’s hard to say which specifically inspire me the most. A lot of good actors are so good, that I don’t think about the fact that they’re acting!

However, when shooting Unwavering I was impressed by Katie C’etta, who played Sarah. I got to see how she worked behind the scenes and how her acting methods came off on camera. Her commitment to her role was incredibly inspiring!

MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Emily: Can I say ALL the Marvel movies?

MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?

Emily: I love to write, do video production, read, play video games, and eat pizza (is that a hobby?).

MPF: What made you interested in acting?

Emily: In middle school I discovered my love of musicals and Broadway. So, I got involved in the theater department and was in a performance all four years of high school. Then, I went to school for video production. While I love working behind the camera, I took opportunities to get in front of it as well.

MPF: Favorite color?

Emily: Hmm… Purple? No, blue. No, wait… ??

MPF: Who is your favorite character in the UNWAVERING film?

Emily: While Sarah is the obvious choice, I always appreciate a well written villain. I’m going to say the villain that was played by Nicholas Baronzzi (not that I LIKE him, but he’s an interesting character). You start out thinking one thing about him, and then he twists your emotions around and make you feel so many things towards him and the situation.

MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?

Emily: Get involved and make connections. You can’t be scared to talk to new people or put yourself out there. Not even just for acting, but anything you want to be involved in.

Thank you, Emily, for being involved with this film! For information about the Grand Premiere of UNWAVERING (ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON!) be sure to sign up for the newsletter here:

Theresa Wylie | Actor Highlight | Meet the Cast | UNWAVERING

Today on the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series we are featuring the lovely Theresa Wylie.

TheresaWylie10

Terry played the role of Sarah’s mother, Kathy. The script hit home with Terry because her own daughter got engaged and married around the same time she first read it. How’s that for coincidence?

Terry is very sweet and loving and it showed through the video audition she submitted. Without meeting her or talking to her in person I could feel the passion and warmth from her audition and I knew she was the perfect fit for the role.

Terry has been involved in some pretty great films such as Banger, Dog Eat Dog, and the recent horror film Bye Bye Man. You can read more about Terry and the projects she’s been involved with by going to her website http://theresawylie.weebly.com/

Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 7.23.58 AM

Here are the questions we asked Terry:

MPF: What was your favorite part of filming for UNWAVERING?

Terry: My favorite part was working with the amazing cast and crew.  They were all so talented and hard working.  I’ve made some life long friendships!

MPF: What’s your favorite role you’ve ever played?

Terry: It’s too hard to pick a favorite.  I’ve enjoyed them all!  What I loved about playing Kathy was that I could really relate to this character.   My own daughter was also engaged and getting married.  The script seemed oddly familiar and I remember joking with Josh that I felt like he must have been to my house when he wrote the script.  😁

MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?

Terry: I’m a big fan of Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, and Debra Messing. 

MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Terry: Hard to pick an absolute favorite but some I love are:  Forrest Gump,  The Devil Wears Prada,  The Proposal,  A Beautiful Mind

MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?

Terry: In the summer, I just love being outdoors hiking or biking.  We have a lot of great parks nearby but we also love to throw our bikes in the car and check out new places.  In the winter, I like reading murder mysteries and making puzzles while counting down the days until summer.

MPF: What made you interested in acting?

Terry: I didn’t get started until later in life but I’ve always had an interest in relationships and what motivates people to do things.  I remember watching plays and movies as a kid and wondering how I could get involved.  It’s been such an amazing experience getting to explore my creative side when developing a character.

MPF: Favorite color?

Terry: Red

MPF: Who is your favorite character in the UNWAVERING film?

Terry: Sarah, my daughter, of course!  I love her strength.

MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?

Terry: Network!  You can learn a lot from your fellow actors.  Also, don’t be too hard on yourself.  It’s a learning process and there will be a lot of disappointments.  That’s just part of it.  Another opportunity is right around the corner.  Work hard, be friendly, and believe in your training.  Never pay to audition or be represented!

We continue the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series today with Georin Aquila.

Georin played the role of a terrorist in UNWAVERING. Standing at 6′ 3″ tall and a little over 200 lbs, Georin’s muscular stature was a great fit for what I was looking for. He did a phenomenal job and helped to be the enforcer in a couple of situations throughout the film.

Nicholas Baronzzi | Actor Highlight | Meet the Cast | UNWAVERING

Today on the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series we are featuring the one and only Nicholas Baronzzi.Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 6.03.54 AM

The role Nick played in UNWAVERING was Yusaf. Yusaf is a terrorist and a complex character; charismatic at first then cold and detached.  Nick will literally do anything to get the best take possible. Whether that’s sweating in military gear for hours or falling on his face onto concrete, he goes all out with no remarks.  After Nick’s performance in Gretchen’s Lock and seeing his auditions for UNWAVERING, there’s no doubt that I wanted him to be a part of this project.

Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 6.14.09 AM

These are the questions we asked Nick:

MPF: What’s your favorite role you’ve ever played?

Nick: Play acting in high school was a lot of fun. Being able to feel and feed off the energy of a live audience is an electric thing. As far as film, portraying Jason in Gretchen’s Lock was relaxed and memorable. I overheard some kids at the premiere hoping that I wouldn’t die—that was nice.

MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?

Nick: Shout-outs to Leo DiCaprio for using his celebrity to draw attention to relevant global issues.

MPF: What’s your favorite movie of all time?

Nick: I have a personal Top 4 that stand above the rest I’ve seen, and they are 2001: A Space Odyssey, Seven Samurai, Pulp Fiction, and Apocalypse Now.

MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?

Nick: I do a lot of stuff with music—play it, record it, mix it, listen to it all day and every night while I sleep. I’m also a huge nerd for Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series—I host a bi-weekly tournament for the Wii U version. Our seventeenth tournament is coming up next week.

MPF: What made you interested in acting?

Nick: I’m a creative, and private as I often am, I need to bring what’s inside out.

MPF: Favorite color?

Nick: Cobalt blue.

MPF: Who is your favorite character in the UNWAVERING film?

Nick: Due to the fragmented structure of UNWAVERING, I chose not to read the script in full—only the parts relevant to Yusaf, so I could preserve the coldness and distance inherent to a hostage situation. I didn’t allow myself to like any of the characters.

MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?

Nick: Entertainment is a business; integrity is an investment.

Thank you again, Nick, for the outstanding performance! For information about the Grand Premiere of UNWAVERING be sure to sign up for the newsletter here: www.menningphotographicfilms.com/newsletter
