Palomino & Swissy’s Screening Starring Shawn Parsons, Briana Marin, Eric Roberts and Special Appearance by Jasper Cole at the Austin Film Festival

Palomino & Swissy’s screening starring Shawn Parsons (Men In Black: International, 12 Years A Slave), Briana Marin (The Leftovers, A Walk Among the Tombstones) and Eric Roberts (The Expendables, The Dark Knight) with a special appearance by Jasper Cole (ABC’s The Rookie, Training Day) is at the prestigious Austin Film Festival on Sunday October 27 at 9:45pm at the Hideout Theatre, which is located at 617 Congress Ave in Austin, Texas. This crime-drama-western TV series from Adaptive Studios is a violent romp following an outlaw power couple through the dirty outlying towns of Los Angeles as they steal a rabbit foot briefcase full of money from a drug lord within his own gang-infested, desert kingdom. It’s an empty desert of opportunities. The writers of this show are Brian Groh (CBS’ Cyber, TNT’s Major Crimes) and Julien Lasseur (Remus, Broken), with Lasseur directing.

This much buzzed about show also stars Helena Cardona (Chocolat, X-Men Apocalypse), Alexandra Grey (Empire, How to Get Away with Murder) and Bess Rous (Ghostbusters, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy).

About the Austin Film Festival:

Austin Film Festival furthers the art and craft of filmmaking by inspiring and championing the work of screenwriters, filmmakers and all artists who use the language of film to tell a story.

What AFF is probably best known for around the world is its annual October Austin Film Festival & Conference.

The Film Festival & Conference was the first event of its kind to take the lead in bringing professional and amateur screenwriters (and now filmmakers) together to celebrate the role of the screenplay in filmmaking and discuss the considerable creative possibilities of writing for film and television. Equally important, the Conference brought producers, agents and screenwriters together to foster the sale of screenplays and launch long-term successful careers.

Hundreds of writers’ groups, services and festivals have followed the Conference’s model over the past ten years, reinforcing the value of its continuing mission to recognize the art of screenwriting.

Anyone Home is released by Gravitas Ventures

The much anticipated psychological horror film, Anyone Home (previously named Model Home), was just released by Gravitas Ventures. This film stars multi award-winning actor Jasper Cole (The Rookie), Kathy Baker (Picket Fences) and Monique Gabriela Curnen (The Dark Knight). This is the first feature film from director Patrick Cunningham from a script he wrote with producer William Day Frank.

Anyone Home poster

A troubled single mother (Curnen) entertains a dangerous fantasy after she’s recruited to live in an unsold property in an empty development. Jasper plays the pivotal role of Walker, a “desert rat” who lives in an old run down RV on the out skirts of the small desert town where the film takes place. Eccentric and bizarre, he’s a voyeur who suddenly finds himself thrust into the lives of the mother and young son (Luke Ganalon) who are living in the ‘Staged House for Sale”. He goes from potential stalker to being a “victim himself”. This timely film highlights timely issues such as mental illness, suburban strife, socio-economic race relations and the real estate market crash.

“It was great to play this character because he’s not a BAD GUY per se, I chose to play the role with vulnerability and a certain kind of likability. A departure from some of the more hard core characters I’m grateful to get to play,” said Cole.
