SAG actor Al Quinn, out of Fort Myers, shared about UFTA.

"I'd like to say that part of our organization's purpose (see below) is why we have moved forward with 'all things' entertainment!"

"... for the purpose of a strong, healthy and profitable production industry in the State of Florida, the following is strongly recommended and encouraged. We believe that any person, firm, corporation, guild, union or collective bargaining agent engaged in the motion picture, television, video, broadcast, recording industries, or in any business or occupation directly or indirectly related thereto, shall be eligible for membership in the appropriate category of this organization." - UFTA

UFTA's president and all its members, not only agree with the above but they also agree with the reason for shooting their film.

"We have been planning this film for a long time, and now it's about to happen. It is a combination of a documentary and comedy, and we are very proud of it!

We hope this short film will help educate UFTA members, new and old, and of course we want others to view it as well. YouTube, film festivals, members' websites and other locations will be ways to view and enjoy our film, 'Casting.'" - Al Quinn

Quinn goes on to explain what the film is all about.

"'Casting' is a way to show talent what to expect at a casting. It will include the dos and don'ts of a casting as well."

Cast and crew members of "Casting" include Al Quinn, Steve Barnett, Rick Vorell, Cassidy Reyes, Joe Reyes, Margaret Bishop, Carrie Belluso, Judy Davis, Geri Muck (Protocol Models on the Gulf), Shivanai Patel, Pooja Patel, Cynthia Bercowetz, Griffen Olney, Ernesto Lasso de la Vega and Benjamin Jacob.

According to Al Quinn, and the film's Director of Photography (DP) Ernesto Lasso de la Vega, another location for shooting the film will be in Fort Myers. After the editing process they plan on submitting "Casting" to film festivals.

Two local film fests include the Naples Film Festival and the Fort Myers Film Festival.
