Robert Socci is . . . Peter Whales!

"Before he did Ace Amoeba, he was a major player in the bronze age of comics . . . fighting to keep the comics fresh without bowing to the censorship of the comic code authority. The man has over fifty titles under his belt for all major labels." -Evan

Robert Socci has been cast to play legendary comic book writer/artist Peter Whales. Tonight we did a mini-rehearsal with him, Angela, and Jonathan.




All three of them did great tonight, natch. Next week we practice with Robert again, and by that point, it will be FREAKIN' AUGUST. I'm starting to freak out a little on how little time we have left. I've still got so much to do. At least the rehearals have been going well and I can't wait for the first complete cast rehearsal on August 11.

Hey ralph, have you been video documenting the rehearsals? Might be good material for the DVD, and better yet, a good way to study your working process for future films.

I'm definitely going to videotape our big full cast rehearsals, and maybe a few smaller ones. I think it'll help me more when they're working off the page. But for these first one-on-ones, I'm just putting all of the energy into teaching them how to practice the lines correctly!
