The latest news at Tallgrass Pictures this week is that Jeni, Jennifer, JB, and casting director Gabrielle Schary are heading to Studios West in Santa Monica to cast the leads in Under My Roof. With hundreds of submissions our team is sure to have an action packed a couple of days. Over the next that week couple weeks the team will be casting in Los Angeles, San Diego, and New York. For more information about this casting find us on IMDB.
Tallgrass’ UNDER MY ROOF has just been selected for the 2013 Oaxaca Film Festival! Written by the lovely Jennifer de Poyen, UNDER MY ROOF is the story of a young boy who, with his father, builds a nuclear weapon in order to secede from the United States. The screenplay is based on the satirical novel of the same name written by author Nick Mamatas. Jen has created a messy dystopian future full of complex characters that will translate to the screen beautifully.
We’re so proud of what Jen has done and could not be more thrilled to have UNDER MY ROOF recognized by the Oaxaca Film Festival. As this is Tallgrass' first feature, we're looking forward to the opportunity to meet potential collaborators for the project.
