An Interview with the First Place Actress in the 14-17 Year Category, Corissa Gay
This particular interview is with Corissa Gay, a young talented actress. This is one of many in a series of interviews at the 2011 Indie Gathering. It is an annual international event usually held at the Westlake Holiday Inn in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. This was the event’s fifteenth year.
Corissa Gay is a 17 year old actress from Columbia Station, Ohio. While you might not expect a wanning teen to have experience, this young talent started out young and has almost a decade of acting under her belt. You may also recognize her voice for she is the one in the intro for these interviews who says “way over the top” and the Russian fortune teller in the series outro. She is also the festival’s First Place winner for the acting competition in her age group.
You can find Corissa over at Facebook and on Twitter. You can check out one of the many theaters she is involved in at 82nd Street Theatre. Others include, LCCC Theater, Columbia High School, Brunswick ACT, The Beck Center, Berea Grindstone Players and Pioneer Theater… and there are even more. I think you get the idea, she has a LOT of experience.
Last but not least, Lumpy must give The Indie Gathering a very serious personal endorsement. Whether you score movies, act, edit, direct, do make-up, costume or special effects, this is an event that you should mark on your calendar each and every year. The event features many, many screenings in three simultaneously running screening rooms, many seminars and demonstrations for all who attend and contests for those who enter. You can find out more about this event over at theindiegathering.com. If you are into film and miss this event, you are making a mistake, there is just no other way to put it.
