Park Slope Films is back with a new project. Following the success of their feature Apostles of Park Slope, the PSF team is hard at work writing, casting and prepping their next film, a short comedy called THE SCHENECTADY PACKAGE.
THE SCHENECTADY PACKAGE was inspired by a classic episode of the iconic television series. “The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street,” which originally aired in 1960, used Cold-War hysteria to tell a story of neighbors who turn on each other for no good reason.
Perfect material for a comedy. Well, a dark comedy. A very dark comedy.
Director Jason Cusato, actor Al Accettura and actor/writer Anthony DeVito have written a story that takes elements of fear, gentrification, greed, ignorance, bigotry, lunacy and mistrust and sets it on the mythical "Schenectady Street" in modern-day Brooklyn. And they've made it very funny.
THE SCHENECTADY PACKAGE features actors from APOSTLES: Anthony DeVito (CHIEF) Al Accettura (TINY), Michael Tadduni (FREDDY), Chris Harcum (MAGOO) and Nick Freni (FATHER PAUL) as well as several new faces. Shooting will begin in late Spring/early Summer 2011.

Park Slope films is now in pre-production for our next film; a new short comedy inspired by an episode of the classic television series The Twilight Zone. There are several roles we're still casting for. Please submit headshots and resumes for any of the roles below by emailing them to: @ firstname.lastname@example.org
THE WILSON'S KELLY & CLAUDE -Older couple, Kelly, a mid forties/fifties black woman, about 5’ tall and always speaks her mind. Can also be a big troublemaker, starting rumors and believing what ever she hears from idiots like Charlie and Bobby. She doesn’t like Charlie or Bobby but sometimes jumps on board just to push people. Kelly is also overly happy all the time but can change to overly suspicious in a minute. She is very much in love with her husband of 23 years Claude. Claude is a tall black man. Early 50’s. Claude is extremely put off by most of the block, is also very much in love with his wife and very protective of her. Claude would rather keep his distance from everyone on the block but Kelly likes to keep up with the gossip and is always in the middle of everything. They have lived on the block a long time, almost as long as Pete. Good luck trying to win an argument when both are around.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
