September 30, 2008

In our ongoing series, we are highlighting the incredible actors and actresses who have signed up to work with us on Coffka. Next up is the incredibly talented actress, Nina Carduner. We are blessed to have her. She has brought so much talent and energy to the project that it spreads to everyone on the set. She is a real professional who continues to do whatever it takes to make every shoot as good as it can be. We are very happy to have the privelage of working with her.

Nina is a recent transplant from the Bay Area in N. California. After graduating from Beloit College with a B.A. in acting, she worked in the commercial print industry and fringe theater scene of San Francisco. There, she collaborated with the experimental theater group, Naked Maskes, in the world premier of “No Such Thing,” written and directed by Jonathan Vandenburg. She also appeared on stage with the Actor’s Ensemble of Berkeley as Lampito in “Lysistrata.” In Seattle, she continues to cultivate her craft with a focus in film. This will be her first feature-length.

Filming Has Begun – Urban Coffee Lounge
September 23, 2008

Filming has begun. We don’t think that things could go much better than they have. It is quite amazing. Our crew is simply amazing and our actors are first rate.

We would like to personally thank the Urban Coffee Lounge for letting us use their business for filming. Everyone there was accommodating and professional. Not to mention that they have the best coffee in town and highly skilled baristas! Make sure that you stop in the next time you are in the Juanita Bay area.

Above is Nina Carduner (Tiffany) and Amol Kale (Gulshan) outside of the Urban Coffee Lounge sharing a coffee.

Above is our visionary director, Glenn Allyn, and the exceedingly talented cameraman, Mike Gaston.

We would like to apologize to all of our fans for missing an update last week. We got so wrapped up in making sure that all of our staff was taken care of that we had to skip a week of updates.

Agrippa Williams – Cast Member Exposé
September 9, 2008

Known for his deep, rich, bass baritone voice,  Agrippa is a performance poet, writer, actor, vocalist, model and inspirational speaker. He has performed on stage, radio, television and film.  His most recent films are Freedom State, Anathem, World’s Greatest Dad, Sacrifices of Hate and Slushai (Listen). His performance in Smokey Joe’s Cafe at the CapitaL Playhouse was absolutely amazing!

Agrippa is also known for his humanitarian nature.  In 2001, he donated a kidney to save the life of a complete stranger!  No longer a stranger, Bill calls Agrippa his Angel!  An avid golfer, Agrippa travels the country playing in celebrity golf tournaments to  help raise funds for at-risk children, breast cancer and many other worthy causes.

Oddly enough, Agrippa is playing an Angel in Coffka. His voice and command will make this another performance to remember. We here at Coffka are looking forward to his performance (if his audition was an indication of things to come, then this one is going to be good)!

Agrippa is looking forward to working with the Coffka Team and being a part of this wonderful endeavor. Be sure to check out his web site – www.agrippa.info – What a voice!. 

 

Paul Eenhoorn – Cast Member Exposé
September 2, 2008

In our ongoing series, we are highlighting the incredible actors and actresses who have signed up to work with us on Coffka. Paul is a tremendous asset to the Seattle-area filmmaking community. Actors in his range with comparable talent and dedication are simply non-existent it seems. Paul has signed up to play the Doctor (“Dr. Shey”) in Coffka. We wish our own doctors could deliver our diagnoses with as much style as Paul does.

Paul Eenhoorn is an incredibly talented individual. He is one of those people who has been gifted by the gods with the right voice, look, and accent. He is one of the hardest working actors in the industry. Feel free to check out his demo by CLICKING HERE. It does not matter what role he is playing, Paul is fun to watch.

Regarding a recent film of Paul’s, Bill Murray (yes THE Bill Murray) said, “You delivered a most satisfying, believable performance in Warrior’s End. I ‘bought it.’ Actually, you and a couple of others were responsible for keeping the project fun to watch, but you nearly did it single-handedly. Way to go, Paul! Thanks for all you brought to Warrior’s End. From a personal, selfish standpoint, it’s always gratifying to call a shot and hit it, and I was totally confident in your ability to deliver. You did that, and much, much more.” These are the types of accolades that Paul gets over and over again. We are very excited to be working with a true professional like Paul.
