Lost Penny Q&As - Part 2

Q&A with Thomas Nelson

The Barefoot Man gives Penny a warning.
Q: What's your role in the film, "Lost Penny"?
A: The Barefoot Man. A mysterious character.

Q: What was the most challenging part for you?
A: Trying not to overact.

Q: What did you enjoy the most about working on this film?
A: It is always a pleasure working with the crew. Everyone is very supportive. As an untrained actor, this is a confidence builder and slight ego booster.

Q: Do you have any anecdotes about working on the film?
A: I was having memory issues that were new to me. I am grateful for the patience of the crew and also thankful for Rachael McOwen’s suggestions for a work around. Also... Walking around barefoot with ‘ashy’ feet and legs took some getting used to.

THOMAS NELSON (Barefoot Man) has enjoyed a extensive career as a bassist and vocalist. This is his second film with CubeCity Entertainment. Whether in the recording studio, nightclubs, concert halls or on the sets of radio, television or film, he is highly skilled and professional.

Q&A with Tia Blake

Filming the Red Dancer.
Q: Which role do you play in the movie?
A: I play the dancer who finally makes it to #1... Dancing my way from the bottom to top. It is the goal of the "Game" in the dance club.

Q: What was your favorite part of playing this role?
A: One of my favourite things was learning the different lenses. After many takes of various scenes, I was curious as to why they needed so many. So the crew gladly explained different lenses and angles. It was a lot of fun playing a role but also being able to see myself on the film screen at different angles and points of view.

Q: What was the most challenging part?
A: First were the different takes throughout the filming process. There were times I could not move for a long period of time because different angles were needed but nothing could look different in my scene. I was often nervous to breathe and have even my arm move an inch because I did not want to ruin the take. However, the crew made it pretty easy because they were fun to work with and encouraged me along the way. Second would be filming a dance. I have danced for many years so the actual dancing wasn’t too difficult. But having over 50 takes right in a row, well I got pretty tired. The director and production coordinator always reinforced to me that the dance still looked great.

Q: What did you enjoy the most about working on this film?
I enjoyed being able to see how it all worked. Just about everyone knows what it is like to go to the theatre, watch a movie and enjoy it from their seat. Not many can say they know how it all happens... People were right behind the camera as scenes, important scenes, were being filmed. They yell "Action" and it’s almost as if life around stops; then they yell "Cut" and it’s back. I could not get over the atmosphere around it all.

TIA BLAKE (Red Dancer) began dancing at the age of two. During high school, she helped choreograph and worked on her triple-threat: singing, acting, and dancing. She placed first overall in competition for her solos, age 15-18. Most recently, she took home the silver medal from the 2014 World Tap Dance Championships. A dance instructor at Broadway Lights Dance Studio, Tia enjoys helping her students find the joy of performance.

Q&A with William G. Hobbs

The Pirate in the Shadow Genie's lair.
Q: What's your role in "Lost Penny"?
A: The Pirate – One of the many bizarre characters that Penny meets in the club.

Q: What was your favorite part of playing this role?
A: Favourite part – I look like a rockin' cool pirate.

Q: The most challenging part?
Putting on those boots.

Q: What did you enjoy the most about working on this film?
A: I made Rachael's day by getting her to sign my blu-ray of “The Amazing Spider-man 2”.

WILLIAM G. HOBBS (Pirate) has spent years in church and community theatre. He toured with Covenant Players back in the 90s and spent 5 years as a producer and sometimes writer/director/voice actor of radio theatre for Family Bible Hour.
