Student actors play background on HBO film
Seven LA Mission College students had the opportunity to perform as background on an HBO film shoot this past weekend. Kathia Rios-Barragan, Brooke Lakes, Shannon Cox, Cecilia Muñoz, Michelle Anguiano, Elizabeth Flores, and Rosalina Wadlow all worked on Kate Marks's short film, Manic, which shot at Pierce College.
Marks is one of three emerging directors to participate in the 2016 HBOAccess Directing Fellowship. Now in its second year, the program provides one-on-one mentorship with an HBO creative executive, education about the craft and business of directing, and a $100k budget to shoot a short presentation for HBO with a professional crew.
