Michael Sharpe is a writer, director, and actor from Charlotte, North Carolina who is making a transition to the west coast and L.A. to further his film career.
His last film that he wrote and directed is called Out of One's Misery. A dark tale with a twist, starring Pat Dortch as David, a very troubled man. Michael also has a part as Sanford, a gentleman looking for his wife and family. Mahri Shelton and Kayli Maree Tolleson play the family members.
The part of Sanford was written for another actor but, because he was unavailable, Michael stepped in to play that role and it couldn't have been a better fit. Michael used a soft spoken southern gentleman accent in the movie that, along with his attire, worked to evoke a sense of calm and tranquility that his character Sanford required.
Enjoy Out of One's Misery, then read my conversation with the director below.
"What do you want to do with your life?" Ginny asks in this film directed by Karen Stanton for ShadowCatcher Entertainment in association with the Brain Injury Association of Washington.
A Not So Still Life is a documentary I ran across this week as I was looking up other things. A feature length film about artist Ginny Ruffner. She was known as Ginny Martin back in the days when she was growing up in Atlanta, GA and Fort Mill, SC before leaving home and getting married.
After attending the University of Georgia she ended up in Seattle, Washington and became a ground breaking ceramic artist known worldwide for her ceramic sculptures.
