Our 500th Twitter Follower., Brandi Alyssa Young!!! This was an awesome shoot for so many reasons. Having the opportunity to work with this great actress who happens to be a filmmaker, producer and writer as well. It was such a pleasure meeting and working with her. A wonderful person....
Brandi started acting in the Southern region as a young girl. She moved to the NYC region a few years ago and has been busy with growing her network, and writing and producing her script, Evil Rising. Which is on the festival circuit now, and racking up the awards, 3 of which she won Best Actress, and 2 Best Horror Short Film.
Brandi is keeping busy with her film, Evil Rising, and was just cast in a feature film called 'Waking Up His Wife' to start principal photography April 2nd, 2018. She is also waiting to hear when shooting is going to start for a feature film, that she is not at liberty to discuss just yet.
Some of Brandi's goals are to get more recognizable work here in NYC and bigger budget feature films. She would also love to work with some of her acting mentors such as, Robert Downey Jr., Winona Ryder, Javier Bardem, and Benicio Del Toro. She would also love to become bi-coastal and/or move to LA one day soon.
My experience with Tony at Backstage Photography was one of the best headshot sessions I have ever had. He was very professional and down to earth and very comfortable to be around and that allowed me to be myself and get awesome shots in return. Thank you, Tony!
