A special announcement to our Stage 32 members in and around the LA area. Stage 32 member, director David Rountree, will be premiering his film, CUT! at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood (next to the Egyptian Theater) this Sunday, February 15, 2015, followed by a live Q&A panel with Rountree, Stage 32 Founder/CEO Richard "RB" Botto, David Banks, Chriss Horgan and Matt Chassin. Immediately following will be a very special Stage 32 member meetup at the world famous Pig 'n Whistle on Hollywood Blvd.

David used over 30 Stage 32 members to round out his cast and crew on CUT! which speaks to the true power of Stage 32 for finding talent.  We thank David for his friendship and loyalty to the network.

CUT!, a twisted, psychological thriller, which won BEST FILM, BEST DIRECTOR (David Rountree), BEST LEADING ACTOR (David Banks), and the AWARD of MERIT for AUDIO (Solange S. Schwalbe and Chriss Horgan) at the 2014 Independent Film and Television Festival was named by Movie Rankings as one of the TOP 5 HORROR MOVIES of 2014.

In CUT!, the apparent is never the truth as an ex-con and aspirant filmmaker set out to manufacture a film by scaring people for real; however, when it goes too far and someone actually dies, the pair decide that killing for real on film is the only way to make a truly terrifying movie.


“CUT! has all the makings of an instant classic.”
