Velvet Candy Entertainment LLC, in conjunction with Dennis Hensley Productions and Wait...What? Productions annnouces the completion of production on "Screening Party". "Screening Party" , is an uproarious short feature based on a chapter from the best-selling book SCREENING PARTY by Dennis Hensley. It's the story of how art-even art that's not really art like "Pretty Woman"- can affect people's lives in ways both ridiculous and profound. Starring Dennis Hensley (writer on "Lovespring International" and the feature film "Testosterone", author of "Misadventures in the (213)"), Ossie Beck ("Munich"), Tony Tripoli ("Fashion House"), Erin Quill ("Avenue Q"), Felix Pire ("Phat Girlz"), and Nora Burns. ("The Nellie Olesons "). Directed by Chil Kong ("Pollen") with cinematography by Ivan Corona ("Socket"). The story centers on 6 diverse friends who come together to watch, recall and skewer the movies that we all know and love; films that, for better or worse, mattered to the people who saw them. Using these films and their themes as a point of departure, the story explores the lives of these characters; their hopes and dreams, fortunes and foibles, lusts and heartbreaks, and how the ritual of getting together once a week comes to mean more to them than they ever would have imagined. This is a story about friendship and going after your dreams. Our supporting cast includes Chil Kong (seen recently on "House" and "Lost"), Todd Christian Hunter (seen recently on "Shark"), Bridgette Wright ("Socket") and the mother-son team of Judi Evans Luciano ("Days of Our Lives") and Austin Michael Luciano. Look for more information on "Screening Party" soon!
