We're heading to the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival tomorrow, and you can help improve my chances of being cast in new films just by visiting IMDb.me/RichSwingle. I've posted a number of new photos there to reward your visit. While you're there, please click the Facebook "Like" button if you happen to be on Facebook. The last time I asked folks to visit and "Like" I shot up several thousand points on IMDb's STARmeter, which increases the likelihood of casting directors to take notice of my work. I'd appreciate it tremendously if you could help me out again: IMDb.me/RichSwingle.
This festival has the largest single grand prize in America for Christian film. Joyce and I play husband and wife in Indescribable, which is up for that $101,000 prize. Also, Alone Yet Not Alone, in which I play a land speculator, will be screened there.
You can watch the awards ceremony streamed live this Saturday starting at 7:30pm Central. Click here for details.
Three other films in which I perform were just released:
In the short film Settled I play Tom, one of the leaders in a post-apocalyptic community, who reluctantly takes in an enemy. It was created in 168 hours as a part of a competition. Each team was given the verse Psalm 68:6, one week to write a script, and one week to film it. You can watch it now by clicking here.
I play Coach Sean Ryan in For the Glory, which tells the true story of Kirk Kuykendall: His dreams of playing basketball in the Olympics were shattered, but when he gave his life to the Lord there was a transformation that opened the possibility of playing soccer in the Olympics. You can order the DVD by clicking here.
Pawn's Move, a film in which I play Sheriff Hansen, one of several characters that help a young couple understand life in the grace of the Lord, was actually released some time ago, but it is now available to watch instantly on Netflix and Amazon. Click here for details.
If you haven't already done so, please click IMDb.me/RichSwingle to help my chances of being cast in more faith-affirming films like these.
In other news, we're three weeks away from casting Twelve Angry Jurors for the MasterWorks Festival theatre program, which will take the play on the road, performing in Bethel Park, PA, and in an Off-Broadway theatre in NYC. If you or someone you know would like to join us, urge them to audition soon. You can see my report from last year's program at RichDrama.com/MWF, where there's a link to information on this year's program or you can go there directly by clicking here.
We'll also have a Long-Form Improv track, which will also take advantage of our faculty's 125 years of combined experience in the professional performing arts world. Click here for more info.
As always, my one-man plays are available for live performance anywhere in the world: RichDrama.com.
