My name is Talbot Perry Simons and I am the Executive Producer, Screenwriter and Director of The Gangster Zone and I am very proud to tell you that I hold the world record as Guinness World Records® - Most awarded individual filmmaker of all time.
The Gangster Zone is my second award winning screenplay. It's a great screenplay with a heavy drama, multiple surprises and explosive climaxes,
with a treasure chest of characters and a lot of humor. (And you can say
that you heard it here first), destined to become an award winning film.
There are approximately 75 speaking roles of all ages and character types
in the movie and 100's of background characters and extras. I enjoy working with new talent, just like I did with my first film "Still The Drums", in which every actor except two had never previously acted in a feature film before.
In the end, "Still The Drums" swept the New York International Film Festival winning the top five awards for, Best Film, Best Directorial Debut, Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Song and accomplished with mostly new talent. Overall, we fared especially well with my setting a new world record for the most awards for one motion picture by an individual filmmaker.
This time,I will aim for the stars, by surrounding my cast in "The Gangster Zone" with WELL KNOWN FAMOUS MOVIE STARS, aiming to achieve the same kind of results or better that I accomplished with Still the Drums!
Which means, the opportunity for you as a partner, or for your child, or grandchild to be in my movie "The Gangster Zone" and launch a career
is very real.
The opportunity to have a speaking part in a major motion picture with famous film stars, in a movie that is headed for theaters all over the world,
is also very real.
Any actor, that has a speaking part in a SAG-AFTRA film will become eligible to apply for their union card to become a full member of the Screen Actors Guild and The American Federation of Television and Recording Artists
more commonly known as SAG-AFTRA.
If you, or your child, or grandchild are seeking a future as an actor, a speaking role in a major motion picture could truly launch an actor's career.
With film footage "in the can" from a role in a major motion picture, the opportunity to gain representation with a theatrical agent and/or manager
is very real.
I tell you truthfully, If I had an opportunity like this when I was young man.
I would have been a star a long time ago.
One final important note as to the urgency if there is any interest in taking advantage of my DISCOVER PROGRAM. The Screen Actors Guild frowns on casting too many non-union performers in a union film. So I am in some ways limited and I will not be able to cast as many new actors as I would like. With this in mind, if the Discover Program interests you, I strongly suggest that we speak as soon as possible about this very special and limited opportunity.
For some speaking parts an audition may be required.
