Pawn's Move

Pawn's Move, the film in which I portray Sheriff Hansen, is now available in Christian bookstores, Netflix, and at www.ChristianBook.com.

The film won "Best Family Film," and "Feature Film Audience Choice" at the Bare Bones International Film Festival, after which the director, Caleb Vetter, said, "The screening went very well and I got great positive feedback from several people after the film!"
I found the shot on the right in an article by Sharon Wilharm. She published it 16 days before casting me as one of the leads in Providence.



The Dove Foundation has given Pawn's Move it's seal of approval with a 5/5 Dove rating, calling it an "inspiring story for all ages."

Here's my audition:


Here are the other roles for which I auditioned:

Frank


Conrad


Guy


Baracaldo

Awesome job Rich! Great accent and very convincing job with both Baracaldo and Guy!

Sweet. Very impressive range of characters (I've watched four). Wow! I would have liked to hear a bit more of the Spanish one. Or, how about a Spanish, artistic, farming tele-journalist? Well done.

James said...

Great job . . . and what a range!

Sam said...

God bless your efforts, Rich! I’m sure you’ll do great.

In Christ,
Sam

Nice facial expression; love the accent!

Joyce said...

Excellent work, Rich! I really felt the intensity of each character's situation -- or dilemma, in Guy's case, for instance. Praying you get a role. Blessings, Joyce

Wow! Love the characters and how well they fit each role. Not sure which was my favorite but Baracaldo's "do" was most memorable visually.

You are one of the most versatile actors I've seen. Regardless of the role, you make it real. Even in the space of a minute or less, you create these amazing, believable characters!

I like Barcaldo the best.....your great Rich.....

Merc said...

I also like Baracaldo best! What fun- your accent and mannerisms for him were impressive. It's neat to see a range of characters here.
Blessings Rich!

Beautiful work with Frank, I felt like I got a sense of his history with your excerpt!

Irene said...

They're all so fun Rich =) I especially enjoyed Baracaldo's character as it was such a 'different' looking Spanish guy but such a convincing one! Would love see more of him. I was also drawn in by Guy's pain ... Did you work with pre-recorded voices? So clever!!!

Great job Rich! You are a fantastic actor! ~ Danny

Inge said...

Rich! Your characters are TOTALLY believable. Didn't once look like you were "acting". Very entertaining but so human as well. Great Job! My favourite was Baracaldo.

Rich Swingle obviously IS Sheriff Hanson. His performance made me shiver. What a gifted actor he is. Mac Nelson

The Chews said...

Great job with Sheriff Hanson, I could connect with the suspicious nature of him through your performance!

Paul Cozby said...

Fantastic work! I love the look.
