The Lines in Their Faces

Eight people. Eight personalities. A zany ensemble piece that tickles the funny bone and has heart. Ambiguity is the name of the game as these down on their luck characters spill their guts.

Director Statement

"The Lines in Their Faces" is 50% scripted and 50% improv. I was blessed with a superb Team of actors who were skilled enough to know how to quickly interpret each vignette. I gave them plenty of room and I am very pleased.
Very thrilled and proud to have had permission to shoot in the Historic French Market Restaurant in WeHo. Sadly, the landmark closed in 2015 and is scheduled for demolition in 2017.
