Cameo Cleveland: Corrisa Bragg


An Interview with Corrisa Bragg

Recently, I got a chance to interview my friend Corissa Bragg a local singer/songwriter and actress. We chatted a bit about acting, music, her upcoming journey to India, and her last hurrah here in Cleveland before the big trip.

Bragg recently stared in “My City” a short that follows a young musician on a course of self discovery as she decides what to do with her future. The film was written and directed by local filmmaker Kyle Retter and was shot in partnership with Shoot It Already Films this summer. It will be premiering at Arts in Collinwood December 28, 2011, at 7 o’clock and admission is free.  Come early for some great food, drink, and a chance to hang out with the cast and crew, doors open at 6.

Cameo Cleveland – Cleveland, I Love You

I got a chance to catch up with the producers of “Cleveland, I Love You”; Eric Swinderman and Mark Pengryn and the film’s casting director, Amy Swinderman this past Sunday.  What drew me to this project is the level of professionalism that this project brings to Cleveland.  In a city where so many projects don’t even see the light of day these filmmakers have aspired not only showcase Cleveland talent, but to change the whole industry standard in this city.

The film has just come out of the casting process with some big local names including Robin Swoboda, Vic Gideon, Leon Bibb and a multitude of other talented Clevelanders.  The cast list is huge, but loaded with some fantastic actors who’s work I’ve been lucky enough to catch: Christian Prentice, Mike Goulis, Jennifer Dillon Boczek, Patricia Valestin, and Jackson Biesecker.  And by no means is the talent only in front of the camera, besides the fact that Eric and Mark are award winning filmmakers, the other directors on the project have produced some superb work… Sage O’Bryant, Robert Banks, and Tony Hartman… any more talent and I’m going to have to change my panties.
