The DVD of the indie film Weather Girl is being
released--TJ for Jelly Noose
The DVD of this indie film is being released on Tuesday, December 29th, 2009.
We were able to speak with one of the the co-producers of the film Weather Girl, Dominic Ottersbach, who was highly enthusiastic about this cinematic gem that has won the best film award at the Vail Film Fesival as well as at the Dead Center Festival.
We asked him to tell us about his personal view on the film as well as his thoughts on the DVD release. Mr. Ottersbach replied that, "Blayne Weaver has written and directed a very Woody Allen-esque ensemble piece that will have you rolling on the floor laughing throughout the film. The caliber of actors involved with Weather Girl gives anyone interested in buying a copy an incredibly good reason to rush out and pick up a couple of DVD's, one for her/himself and one for a friend."
His praise is well deserved for the the filmmaking team because this type of quality indie film does not come along everyday. In conclusion, the following forward looking statement by him gave us hope to keep an eye out for more quality films from this illustrious team, "Based on the success of Weather Girl, the same team is heading to Louisiana in February to shoot Weaver's next film, The 6 Month Rule. Oh boy, it just keeps getting better!"
The cast includes: Tricia O'Kelley, Patrick J. Adams, Ryan Devlin, Mark Harmon, Jon Cryer, Blair Underwood and Kaitlin Olsen

We saw talented performer Arthur Romeo take part in Sweet Baby J'ai's one act historical play Recipe for Hot Biscuits and Blues at the Stella Adler Theatre. The play was a part of the 2nd Annual 20% New Works Festival. It was a wonderful performance by the whole cast. Another performance piece that took part in the same evening was This Is War.
We were able to interview Arthur Romeo who was part of the ensemble briefly in Q&A fashion. He has also appeared in films such as Art School Confidential and Be Easy. Arthur's girlfriend, actress-performer Karina Rossy, was there in support(pictured)
Jelly Noose(JN)Q&A with Arthur Romeo:
1. JN: Tell us about your passion for acting/theatre/film(why)
-My passion for the theatre arts revolves around the idea that every single class of art, be it dance, music, graphic, or visual play an integral part in the process and that's amazing because I truly adore all of the arts .Theatre is great because its entertainment, life, and catharsis. You don't come out of a play without learning about something so in that way theatre helps the world go 'round.
2. JN:What is your favorite project that you've taken part in?
-My favorite project that I participated in was a film called Art School Confidential, it was great because I made a lot a great friends on that set and plus I got to work with John Malkovich for two weeks! He's one of my favorite actors.
3. JN:How did you like taking part in Hot Biscuits?
-Its was a wonderful experience! The cast and crew were brilliant, I was quite lucky to be in their ranks. I like that every project I work on I learn something new and can take it with me, in this case it was knowledge of the negro leagues of the 40's and 50's.
4. JN: Do you like musical theatre more or dramas?
-That's hard to say. I'd fashion to say I love all forms of theatre equally. I'm just in love with the spectacle.
5. JN: Of Film and Theatre which do you like more and why?
-Its kind of the same thing as the last answer, while both mediums are wildly different, they are still tightly bound by firm dramatic foundation, and I love both forms very dearly.
6. JN: What are your upcoming projects?
-Right now I have a few books that I'm working on, and as always I'm continuing to do the Hollywood shuffle hustle.
7. JN: What inspires you in your creative works?
-Everyday life, its tragedies, its eccentricities, it's glee, its depravity, its goes on and on.
8.JN: A link - a wep page to see any samples of your work.
-Sure, here's a link to some of my artwork.
Director Barry G. Walker with family son & wife Shauna Walker who is a dancer and a choreographer. He had recently directed music videos for the band Dreamers.
They both directed a short film of an amazing modern dance piece called Solara. Solara is filled with energy and is an innovative piece.
They are creative and entreprenurial, as owners of the peaceful & soothing El Leon in Los Angeles.
Solara is about a group of people from different walks of life who is drawn to the same place in the Mojave Dessert where something cool happens. Shauna not only choreogrpahed but joined to dance amazingly.
