Press on “Stay At Home” and “The Gene” actress Cadden Jones
“One of the most stunning women on film and on print, she’s effortlessly photogenic.
Cadden is going to kick ass as a trained assassin and stir hearts as a mummy in the exciting short “Stay At Home”.
The highly anticipated “The Gene” will see her as Dr Catherine Heyman who discovers the “gay” gene. This could be the feature that could get her plenty of buzz.”
Reviews for “Doomsdays”
“Rice and Fitzpatrick are perfectly cast, both distinctive, charismatic presences who absolutely own the screen. Paired together, they share a chemistry that makes their endlessly amusing banter rocket, particularly whenever hapless outsiders are introduced to their vagabond universe. An ingeniously scripted reinvention of the slacker/buddy comedy and an eccentric, eco-conscious fuck-the-world battle cry, DOOMSDAYS is a uniquely good-humored act of total confrontation. It’s easily one of 2013’s greatest surprises.” – Mitch Davis, Fantasia Film Festival
“Among the several wonderful things about “Doomsdays” is its utter unpredictability. Rice is droll and dangerous; Fitzpatrick is sullen but sensitive. The pair of equally footloose nomads who joins them – the seemingly geeky Jaison (Brian Charles Johnson) and the slinky Reyna (Laura Campbell) – aren’t what one expects either. Nothing about “Doomsdays” is what you expect.” – John Anderson, Indie Wire
“Doomsdays stands out amongst the year’s comedies thanks to fantastic chemistry between the cast and a uniquely good humoured script that never does what you expect it to as what starts as a straightforward comedy quickly becomes a touching and heart swelling movie about family.” – Mark Rogers, Raindance Festival
“..DOOMSDAYS, whose dream-team casting of Justin Rice (MUTUAL APPRECIATION) and Leo Fitzpatrick (KIDS) had me sold from the revelation of a single publicity image…..While the veil of mystery is lifted from the character of Bruho over the course of the film, Fred’s destructive impulses remain enigmatic. But he’s charming enough to pull it off, and the combination of astute casting choices – including newcomers Brian Charles Johnson and Laura Campbell – and its dryly comical tableaux made DOOMSDAYS one of the highlights of the festival for me” – Kier-La Janisse, Spectacular Optical
“Across the board, the performances are excellent, and have the feel of the type of cinematic spontaneity that only comes from lots and lots of rehearsal, experimentation, done within the lines of a particular vision.” – Kurt Halfyard, Twitch Film, Fantasia Film Festival
Reviews for “The Project”
…Piotrowicz should also be commended for his casting, as it’s the natural talent with which the film is bestowed that gifts the film its genuine nature and effect. The Project smartly provides each of the essential characters with a complete backstory, which add great depth to the story, and the actors display a fresh competence that’s fun to watch and puts The Project into the context of the world at large.
~Moving Pictures Magazine
Ryan Piotrowicz takes the faux documentary to another level with his first feature. Strong believable performances from a talented cast quickly gets viewers involved with the main characters, ….. One of our top picks at Slamdance, we hope to see The Project hit more screens throughout this year’s circuit.
