Week One and Beyond
The big news is that we've got our big seven as far as the cast goes. It's as follows:
DEANA EVANS- Givani Favara
PAUL BILTMORE- Branden Maslonka
NIKKI DIRISIO- Chelsi Hartness
HALEY SCHUERMAN- Ann van de Walle
TATE EVANS- Martin Kenna
DEEDEE ABRAMS- Lara Adkins
GEORGE VALLONE- Bill Wassem
We've also got much of our supporting cast, as far as the first three ep's go.
MILES MCLAIN- Joe Boro
CHRIS BENSON- Ja'le Youngblood
BONNIE ROCKWELL- Diane Watson
TESS TAYLOR- Michelle Schrage
That's a lot of news, so I hope I'm not letting it all go at once. Week 2 is going to be spent securing locations, polishing scripts, and setting up that all-important group rehearsal. We are also in the preliminary stages of designing www.evansamerica.com (don't go there yet, you'll just get an ad for web hosting), which will be our base camp where our soon-to-be viewers can watch the episodes and meet up with other viewers and discuss what they just saw.
I'm really looking forward to getting this all going and getting it out there to feel the love/wrath/cold indifference of the viewing public. Three weeks and counting!

This is just a test
Oh, I guess I could mention the project itself. We're trying something a little different than what we've done in the past. Rather than just a three-week shoot and eight-plus months of post to churn out a 90-minute feature, we're going for a episodic piece to be distributed solely by the internet. It's called "Evans' America" and it follows six idealistic post-college twenty somethings as they try to cut through the established system of governmental politics, preaching the "Politics of what really matters." It's something totally new for both of us and the challenges have been pretty cool thus far. This is very character-based and drawn from issues that are in the news and concern us personally.
Keep coming back and we'll keep posting !
