For Steve Smith this is his acting debut. After being on TV several times with Spirits on Bourbon and Bar Rescue he explains that there is a big difference between acting and reality TV. “On Bar Rescue it is very easy to show emotion. When I was mad, I was mad. When Jon Taffer is yelling at you, it’s easy to get pissed. That came naturally. Acting is a whole different ballgame. You have to remember lines and get the emotion out all on your own. I have always wanted to try my hand at acting and now I have a newfound respect for those that do this as a profession. I am so thankful that Joe gave me the opportunity to read for a part and cast me in the film. You know what they say, there are no small parts.”

Working with Director of Photography Daniel Waghorne, Badon hopes to have editing complete by October 2017 with a release date some time in November ’17. Submit the movie to every film fest that I can afford to submit it to. See if any studios notice it, Submit the movie to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Shudder and see if they want to buy it. Self distribute it through Amazon, Vimeo, Youtube.Slap on foreign subtitles and submit to foreign markets for distribution.
