In this series, we introduce you to the cast and crew of The New World Horror. Next up is a member of our marketing team, Sarah Bartash, who also serves as a script supervisor and a producer. If you enjoyed our March Madness horror brackets, you can thank Sarah.
In each post, we will introduce you to the cast and crew of The New World Horror. Dana Pellebon is starring as Michelle in the film, and is well known in the Madison arts community. Most recently, she was seen as Melpomene in the Mercury Players Theater production of Xanadu.
Michelle grew up in a tough neighborhood in Chicago, losing her mother to cancer at a young age, and was raised by her grandmother. While Michelle was more into reading and academics in school, she soon found herself in an unlikely relationship with an abusive boyfriend. Gang violence eventually took her younger brother and grandmother from her after her boyfriend met his own violent end. Michelle decided she had enough of Chicago, and went to college on academic scholarships. While she still keeps people at a distance, Michelle is generally respected at the elementary school where she teaches English and history and is also head of the teacher’s union. She is living the American dream and making her grandmother proud. Until The New World Horror….
In each post, we will introduce you to the cast and crew of The New World Horror. Adam Schabow is the creative force behind the film, the one who decided to write a script about tea party zombies and then recruited people to help bring his vision to life. He has many roles in the film, including director, writer, producer, and also stars as Russ.
Russ learned early in life, that when something is bothering him, watching a movie shoves that feeling away for a few hours.
People are surprised by his lack of ambition. After high school, he floated around, working from one meaningless job to another. When the recession hit, he had no specific skill set, so he found himself struggling to get by. This didn’t bother Russ because he doesn’t need much. He lives in a studio apartment, where he has made an island for himself. Russ finds all things political boring and uninteresting. Russ just wants to live alone in his island…aka his studio apartment. Until The New World Horror….
In each post, we will introduce you to the cast and crew of The New World Horror. Joshua James plays Jules, a blogger and the creepy star of our teaser trailer.
Jules is a self-involved blogger who has his hands in everything, especially if he thinks there is an opportunity for personal gain. He acts. He’s in a band. He writes. He expects everyone to promote his new project and claims to be pro-community, but mysteriously disappears when friends or acquaintances ask for his help. He’s comfortable covering local politics, but his articles are bland and predictable, always choosing the progressive side of things. While he makes little money working at a community coffee shop, he’s a rock star in the blogging and art community. He’s boring…but people kiss his ass anyway. Until The New World Horror….
Welcome to the first Meet the Cast & Crew post! In each post, we will introduce you to the cast and crew of The New World Horror. First, Harris Lemberg, an entertainer with many talents, who plays Walter.
Walter is the son of a wealthy businessman, who later took over his father’s business and made even more money by shipping jobs overseas to China. Walter decided to run for Congress using his father’s name to help him get into politics and continued to buy up companies and ship the jobs overseas to make a huge profit. After reelection, he gave up hope and was a whore to the tea party lobbyists. Until The New World Horror….
