Our star, Clarence Felder is portraying a vicious comedy super tycoon in "Republic of Pete" a hilarious indie comedy shooting all over Charleston and Folly Beach, South Carolina directed by Jesse Berger. Playing Clarence's henchman lawyer is none other than our own Governor Rutledge, the very versatile Michael Easler. They try to teach some college boys a lesson...two of which are our AFL featured actors, Miles Pittman and Richard Bryant (Richard who played Gus in AFL is also currently on "Army Wives" for Lifetime). Clarence is also cast in the new project of Director/Producer Michael Givens, "Angel Camouflaged", starring rock singer Dilana Robichaux as a disillusioned singer, also shooting in SC.
Meanwhile, Trevor Erickson (see photo above), Nick Smith and a host of other AFL actors have been working on an indie action-thriller, Cold Soldiers (ala Bourne Identity) as highly trained soldiers who are rehabilitated tyo return t active duty. AFLers Micahel Easler, Sandra VanNatta, Bettina Beard and nat Jones play supporting roles in the feature from Claesdestine Films which is slated to enter the film festival circuit very soon.
And - Richard Almes of Almes Productions, our fabulous second cinematographer, has been very busy shooting for top corporations throughout our state including Boeingand Blackbaud, as well as some special promotional projects for the SC State Commerce Department.
