Finally, Super Gabby updates. I made two trips to Vegas the last two weekends, one for the film premiere of "A Father's Journey" at the Las Vegas Latino International Film Festival (look out for a blog on that) and the other to attend a wedding. I actually came back and worked two days before going back so it felt like a split vacation. Anyway, Super Gabby, here we go...
We just had our third round of auditions today and we'll be doing callback auditions this Saturday. We're still looking for more actresses to audition for Gabby's mother and grandmother:
Female / Supporting / Hispanic / 30 - 40
Gabby's mother. Strong. Independent. She's a widow raising her two daughters with the help of her mother. Fluent in Spanish is a plus.
Rate: Meals, Credit
Female / Supporting / Hispanic / 55 - 65
Gabby's grandmother. Warm, loving, and caring. Full of life and wisdom. Spiritual. You can go to her feeling down and depressed and walk away happier than ever. Also, she's very interesting and cool. She is very knowledgeable in Aztec/Chicano culture. Must be fluent in Spanish.

Please help us by forwarding to anyone who might be interested. We will be filming in mid July, 2015. More information upon request. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your experience and/or resume and head shot(s) to set up an audition.
CROWD FUNDING CAMPAIGN
We will be launching an Indiegogo very soon with awesome perks to help raise funds for our budget.
I'm excited to announce that we have locked in our Director of Photography, Edgar Luzanilla.
