Summer is one of the busiest independent producers in New York. She, with her company Choice Theatricals, has produced a variety of projects. Off-Broadway: Reading Under the Influence, Stain, In the Daylight and American Stare (which has being optioned as a movie). Films: the multi-award winning short A Younger Man and the feature Junction (17 major film festival awards). Her current film (line producer) Trust Me, I’m a Lifeguard will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring. And her upcoming project Containing Charlie to be directed by Katie White and cast by Leah Daniels (Precious, The Butler) is in the final stages of development.
Summer is active on the other side of the camera too. She won Best Supporting Actress in 2013 at both the Long Island Film Expo and the IndieFest in Los Angeles and was the Best Actress in the revival of Last Summer in Bluefish Cove in 2006. She has numerous TV credits including guest starring roles in Law & Order, Criminal Intent and Kings and can be seen and heard in television and radio commercials (over 650 to date.)
Here’s how it works – an announcement for the workshop will be posted on the 17th of March at 12 noon. The first 30 actors to respond will get a spot. The best way to ensure you receive the notice in a timely manner is to be on my constant contact list. If you’re not, let me know.
Those actors will then meet on the 20th of March. Once they arrive at the studio their names will go into a hat and as many actors as can will work in the time alloted.
Cost to the actors – zero. It’s our way of giving something back.
Actors need to bring a two-minute contemporary monologue and 2 headshots and resumes.
This is a great opportunity to have your work seen by one of the brightest new lights in the biz. Summer’s husband, Tony Glazer, is directing a new TV series and I am sure she’ll be doing some scouting for him.
Hope to see you there.
