Words Unspoken Now Available On DVD

ImageROC's short film Words Unspoken is for sale on DVD through ROC Pictures. This short film is fantastic. Renee presented it at the 2009 Xena Convention and EVERYONE was moved by it. It is truly a fantastic short film. It provoked such a rich discussion at the convention that was both thought provoking and extremely emotional.

I urge everyone, if you can, buy a copy; you won't regret it. Renee has written such a beautiful story; it will move you and you will have some sort of reaction.

 

The DVD is currently available to those in the US, Canada and Europe. There is no mention of Australia / NZ or anywhere else for the moment.

Beyond the Farthest Star Movie News

Shoeless Joe Comes to Leonard
By Robert Wilonsky in From the RTF Department

...Joining him in the cast: Lou Beatty Jr. and Renee O'Connor, the Houston native best known as Xena's sidekick.

Ben Robinson, who's handling PR for the production company, says the movie's set to begin shooting for four weeks on March 8 and will indeed use a mostly local cast and crew rolling cameras "in and around Dallas," as well as up in Fannin County. Producers had considered shooting in New Mexico or Louisiana, but stuck with North Texas for various reasons

Renee Joins Cast of 'Beyond the Farthest Star'

Renee O'Connor Joins Cast of 'Beyond the Farthest Star'

"Beyond the Farthest Star" brings O'Conner back to her home state as filming begins the first of March in locations throughout the Lone Star State. Pathlight Entertainment LLC has attached Renee O' Connor ("Xena: Warrior Princess, "Fitful," "Bogeyman II") in the role of Maurene Wells in its upcoming family drama, "Beyond the Farthest Star," set for a Christmas 2010 release.

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 12, 2010 -- Pathlight Entertainment LLC has attached Renée O'Connor ("Xena: Warrior Princess," "Fitful," "Bogeyman II") in the role of Maurene Wells in its upcoming family drama, "Beyond the Farthest Star," set for a Christmas 2010 release.

The feature, produced by Benjamin Dane and Sally Helppie, is directed by its writer, Andrew Librizzi.

When chance brings the national spotlight to his last church in a forgotten Texas town, Pastor Wells has an opportunity to regain his former glory or seize one last chance to restore his fractured family.

"Beyond the Farthest Star" is an American Beauty meets Frank Capra-esque story of betrayal, forgiveness and redemption. Adam Wells, a minister driven by the prospect of achieving greatness as the next nationally-syndicated TV Evangelist, lays down his opportunity at "celebrity" and his own life in order to become something greater, A loving husband and father to his wife and daughter.

"We are delighted Renée has joined 'Beyond,' said Librizzi, "Her ability to make emotionally complex characters both accessible and sympathetic to audiences will be essential in her portrayal of Maurene Wells, a character isolated by a secret. When exposed, it turns the story upside-down."

"Beyond the Farthest Star" brings O'Connor back to her home state as filming begins the first of March in locations throughout North Texas. Represented by Grant Management, O'Connor is also a filmmaker, producing and directing "Words Unspoken" and "Diamonds and Guns."
