Tag: Celestial Run
New Eden Productions is pleased to announce that after three long yet rewarding days of auditions, the cast for their first short film, Celestial Run, has been chosen! Out of the twenty-three available roles, ten Maricopa residents were chosen, an exciting indicator of the high level of talent present right here in Maricopa.
The lead role of Stephen will be played by Maricopa resident/co-owner of New Eden Productions Jesse Eyman, and the role of his son Tommy will be played by Jesse’s real-life son Stephen Eyman.
The principal supporting role of the wife, Nicole, will be played by Maricopa resident Kristi Lawrence who beat out approximately twenty other actresses who auditioned for the role of Nicole. “When I was called and offered the part of Nicole, I almost dropped the phone! I can’t even begin to explain how thrilled I am to have this opportunity to do something that I love so much” said Kristi when asked about her reaction to being chosen for the role of Nicole. She added that the kick-off cast party where everyone met and read through the script together was wonderful. When asked about working on Celestial Run she replied, “we haven’t even started yet, and you could just feel the excitement in the room. The production team has obviously worked really hard on writing this script, and we hope to make them–and our community–proud of what we can put together. The best part? I also think we are all going to have a great time doing it.”
Shooting for Celestial Run will begin April 17th, and conclude by the end of May. The majority of the project will be filmed in Maricopa, with shoots taking place at locations such as Headquarters lounge and Penascos restaurant, as well as the ATA Black Belt Academy. You may even notice cameos by some well-known Maricopa residents in some of the scenes! “Our goal is to make the creation of Celestial Run a community event, not just a private film production” said director Ruben Garcia.
