Southside Security Patrol: Short Film

So here it is yes, finally finished the film…..yayyyyy…the poster for the film can use some work, but sometimes simple is smart. Sometimes weird is different. Well here’s the basic premise of the film…..some security guards run into daily troubles while securing the perimeter of a building…this film was made to see how this story would look on film and what not…..there’s more coming from this story but not pulling all my hats out of the bag as yet…as any good card player never does…..but for now..enjoy this short film…clip….and thanks again all who actually came thru and made this happen.

 

Here’s the link to the film and trailer…………

Aaron Rose as A.J.

Aaron did a wonderful job on set and was pretty creative with his wordplay and coming up with conversation on the spot. I thought he did an outstanding job. Aaron also works as a stand-up comic in addition to acting. We know we’ll see him on the big screen. A.J. is pretty funny, if you have ever worked security you always have that one guy who takes his job way to serious, A.J. is that guy.

Amanda Martin…….as Savannah

Amanda was a sweetheart to work with. Her and Aaron made great partners and were truly a dynamic duo. Amanda was the A.J.’s partner in the film. If you ever noticed someone who is always doing too much on the job or taking things really serious? They usually have a partner who supports and backs them up in whatever they do. So Amanda held her own and backed up A.J. Amanda was very manageable as well.

Armond Edward Dorsey……..as Marcus

Armond was great to work with…Armond brought Marcus to life. Sometimes…I thought to myself is this Marcus or Armond..he just naturally did stuff that Marcus would do..great personality…and forgiving…as we started kind of late after a few setbacks…but the show must go on. Armond was Marcus the guy who’s lazy and doesn’t really do much. Many of us know people like this on any job from IT to bodybuilding….so check Armond’s bio here.

Gemma Alfaro….as Janet

Gemma played Janet in Southside Security Patrol. Gemma was pretty funny and the lines that she came up with in this unscripted comedy was pretty funny. Gemma brought Janet to life and stood her own as well as partnered well with Marcus…..but on any job just like the hard working person has an ally the lazy person has the same ally. Janet and Marcus like to hang out and hardwork is a foreign concept to them. Gemma was very easy to work with and she was very Coachable as well. Thanks again. Gemma.

D’Andre Johnson….as Dacian Banks.

Dandre was and is a very talented actor. Dandre was supposed to be a member of the cast but things changed last minute and Dandre was chosen as the villain. So it worked really well…and he quickly switched roles from being apart of the group to being a villain. Dandre was a very formidable villain for the guards of Southside Security Patrol…so I guess you’ll have to check it out to see what happened. Thanks again Dandre for being so flexible. You can check out Dandre’s contacts here.

The Messenger “Short Film” directed by Jamaal R. James

The Messenger is a short film created by Jamaal R. James for James Creative Arts And Entertainment Company. The Messenger is a short film about a inter-planetary being who visits different people and forces them to make choices. The underlying message is in life we all have choices. The choices we make (ESPECIALLY in negative situations) make things better or worse for us. Here’s a link to the film.

 

Well here’s the Messenger himself. Hermann C. Wolf. Hermann did a great job of making and bringing the Messenger to life. Hermann was very adaptable and did an excellent job of jumping into character as the messenger. Hermann’s German came in very handy as well, since the messenger is using a cryptic language. Lol, what he’s saying is Bad things happen to all of us…..What really shapes our fate is what we do with it. Thanks again Hermann. You can check out his profile here. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6648193/

Burtis Cutler. Burtis played Fred. Burtis did a great job of playing Frustrated Fred. Fred is a middle aged male who’s mad because his kids are spoiled and his wife shows him no respect…and then the car he’s driving happens to break down on him. The Messenger shows up and Burtis takes action. Action that becomes costly for him…..Well watch the film and see for yourself. Fred is to remind us that when we’re angry we should think before acting. You can catch up with Burtis Cutler here. Click the link.

Ruth Hunduma played Cindy. Cindy was jogging and minding her own business when she sprains her ankle on a step. Cindy makes more decisions that make her situation worse than before. Cindy’s another reminder to all of us that when your emotional remember to think……..Ruth was a great actress and was given very little direction and brought Cindy to life. Ruth next time I’ll make a storyboard to make the action come to life. Thanks again Ruth. You can find out more about Ruth Hunduma Backstage here. Click the link.

Yissendy Trinidad played Janessa. Janessa is engaged to be married to her fiancé…and her fiancé has changed his mind and decided to get married with Janessa’s best friend. Janessa takes it like a champ but then makes a hasty decision. Janessa is the embodiment of woman that lash out at their man or ex man by doing something with their body that does no harm to the man or woman in their life and much harm to themselves. If you don’t believe go on message boards and see what scorned women post online. So Janessa is a reminder to all of us….don’t send pics until you cool down….Yissendy’s  accent came in handy. Yissendy was great to work with and took time to actually convey emotional conviction as Janessa. You can catch up with Yissendy Trinidad here.

When he reaches his is almost finished studying he gets a message from a friend advising him that he’s been studying the wrong chapter……Now this has happened to all of us at one time or another. But Bartholmeu makes a choice after the Messenger shows up. Things get out of hand. Bartholmeu reminds us that a temporary escape doesn’t release you from having to face the consequences of your decisions. Thanks again Jacob…..you can Catch up Jacob Kahn here.
