HOSTED BY: Vitelle Webb
We are thrilled to have actress, director, screenwriter and speaker Vitelle Webb host the coming screenings at Get Connected! Vitelle has been a major positive influence in our local industry with many project caterord to making people aware of the homeless. Please make it a point to meet her at the event as she hosts the nights films.  
Some of Vitelle’s credits include roles in movies such as SERIAL RELATIONS, where she plays the lead role as a psycho “bi-polar” chick, who murders people without realizing it’s wrong. Vitelle also has roles in films & TV shows such as TYLER PERRY’S “I CAN DO BAD ALL BY MYSELF”, LIFETIME’S “DROP DEAD DIVA”, “MEET THE BROWNS”, “HOUSE OF PAYNE” & The CW’s “VAMPIRE DIARIES”. 

This mother of two juggles a family and her entertainment career all while helping others to achieve their goals. In 2010 she founded her first non-profit organization called “The Feed the Homeless Tour” in which she and her family help homeless individuals from state to state during their industry tours. 

There were several times along her journey when she became discouraged that she may never see her dream become a reality. She often worked several jobs at a time, while still managing her entertainment career and family life. Vitelle has been homeless more than once, even lived in her car for a period of time. She has been a victim of circumstance more times than one. Vitelle is the true definition of determination as she continues to rise to the top. 

“I want to be living proof that ANYTHING is POSSIBLE!” ~ Vitelle Webb

“If you’re an actor & would like to be considered for a role in “The Face of Homeless” the play, email headshot & resume to today! Please forward to a friend & share this opportunity!”

CineCentral/ CrewCall

CineCentral and CrewCall helps cast & crew identify those entities that are looking for cast and crew for their projects. At past events we noticed many actors and filmmakers felt like they were going home empty handed, they were simply missing each other at the event. During the month we look for companies looking to bring on cast & crew and invite them out. This is NOT AN AUDITION. Think of this is our way to make sure the filmmakers and cast & crew indeed connect. Think of this like a positive speed networking experience. Times range from 2-3 minutes where the party gets to get to know each other, resumes and headshots can be provided and if the filmmakers feel you are the right fit expect to be called in later for an audition. Each group will provide very different offers so please take the time to explore the opportunity to see if it is the right fit for you, and by no means are in way obligated to anyone of them.  

Below are the representative of each production company.
