Editorial for Astoria Entertainment (July-August 2011)
In the summer of 2011, I was asked to join the production company Astoria Entertainment, co-owned and run by the actors Steven Grayhm, Matt Dallas, and Charlie Bewley. I followed the three of them as they toured across the country for the research documentary “Into The Heart Of America”. The subject of the project is to see how veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are transitioning back into civilian life. A film based on the research is titled “Thunder Road” and is currently in the works.
Let’s hear it for Matt & his Astoria Entertainment colleagues, Steven Grayhm, Charlie Bewley (& Production Assistant/Researcher, Jupiter Baudot)! The script for upcoming feature film Thunder Road (penned by Steven) has just been registered with the Writers Guild of America. The research roadtrip and journey towards the finished film will be documented on film as Into the Heart of America: A Soldier’s Story.
2011 is proving to be a year of journeys for Matt. Following his incredible summer journey across America with Astoria Entertainment colleagues, Steven Grayhm and Charlie Bewley, today he celebrates his 10-year journey in pursuit of his dream of becoming a working actor in L.A…Matt would be the first to admit that the journey ahead for him is exciting and full of promise. We promise.
On August 19, 2011 Matt spent almost TWO minutes on One Minute With Rembrandttalking about his current projects, The Ghost of Goodnight Lane, and Thunder Road. Our thanks to Rembrandt Flores for uploading the video today!
