at FISHBON PESCADROME 101 S. Quarantina

Independent Film Madness and BBQ

Victoria Charters, a successful actor in both her native Australia and the United States embarked on an adventure called I Heard the Mermaids Singing in 2007. As an independent short film the odds seemed long, but the script was good, written by playwright, casting director and acting coach, Michael Shurtleff, and the challenge of adapting the script, producing and starring in the film exciting. Over the last two eventful years she has gotten the film into more than 14 film festivals including Cannes and Philadelphia and literally done everything to market the sensitive love story. This Wednesday, we're in for a special treat. Victoria will screen the film at the Fishbon Pescadrome and give us a backstage look at the business of film in all its inter-related phases. Don't miss this one.

Here's a synopsis:
A loner (Kenneth Johnson, The Shield, Saving Grace ) meets a woman (Victoria Charters, Death of a Saleswoman, Jimmy Zip) outside a party, forming a connection in an instant. A classic & lyrical love-tale with a bitter-sweet twist, I Heard the Mermaids Singing is a short-film adaptation of a play written by legendary acting coach & casting director Michael Shurtleff who passed away January 28, 2007. I Heard the Mermaids Singing is an homage to him and his teachings which live on in our hearts & minds.

Before the presentation, Nathan will be at the helm for another magical Fishbon BarB-Que. Food goes on the grill beginning at 7, so bring something to share and join us for vittles before the event.

This one will be very fun, so bring libations to share and join us at the Fishbon Pescadrome, 101 S. Quarantina. in Santa Barbara.
