Greetings from Temecula

Indie coming-of-age feature Greetings From the Shore opens the Temecula film festival today and I'm off to check it out. It's my first film festival (I know - you'd think I go to these all the time), so I'm keen to see what's what. I played a supporting role of a Russian sailor who's a migrant laborer on the Jersey shore.

Leads Kim Shaw and David Fumero are great as the unlikely couple who hook up one summer. It was a great opportunity working in the picture postcard town of Lavalette and to play with the gang, which included good buds Lars Arentz-Hansen and Ron Geren - and our intrepid leader, Greg Chwerchak.

For more info, you can visit the Temecula Film Fest website.
There's also a great review of the film HERE.

Apparently we get ferried to the red carpet in vintage cars! I can see the puzzled expressions on people's faces now, as I cruise by in my open-top MG: "Who the %&$# is that?!"


Not a bad way to spend your birthday...
