A Detour to Mexico: From Mystery to Movie

RisingStar31Productions announces a new ‘star search’ for talented actors and musicians. The company launched two online contests to begin auditions for the film, A Detour to Mexico. It’s a musical which was co-authored with the late Mrs. Sammy Davis, Jr.

Offering a new twist in ‘audience participation,’ the public will be invited to help judge the contestants, who’ll win cash prizes as well as the opportunity to perform in the film.

Pamela Sherrod, the co-writer of the screenplay, says, “There’s so much talent out there, artists who’re just waiting to be discovered. And there are unforgettable characters in the story . . . just waiting to come to life.”

A Detour to Mexico is a musical adventure that follows the escapades of a family of performers who encounter unexpected challenges while traveling to a talent competition. The story’s characters, however, weren’t the only ones who’d experience unexpected trials during their journey. After completing the first draft, the writers actually stumbled down their own difficult road.

A mystery still surrounds the striking similarities between part of the plot and the film, The Cheetah Girls 2: When in Spain, which was produced by Whitney Houston and featured the star, Raven-Symone. Sherrod, who’d given the story to an old friend (and mentor) who was a writer/producer for the show, That’s So Raven, inquired about the similarities, but her calls were never returned.

Three years later, Altovise Davis died shortly after they formed a company to produce the film. When Sherrod’s fiancé died thirty-five days, she was devastated. She dropped the project to begin ministry work, seeking to offer hope and encouragement to people struggling with addiction. Eventually, however, it led her back to producing inspirational books and videos. She chronicled the stormy events surrounding her partner’s last years in The Last Chapter in the Life of Mrs. Sammy Davis, Jr., and published their screenplay in the book, A Detour to Mexico.

Sherrod officially opened the contests last week, and is excited about producing the film.

“It offers a powerful message about the miracle of love. . .” she says, “and I believe it’s time to share it.”

There’s also another message, and it was the primary reason why the women initially joined forces. Altovise was married for twenty years to the famous Rat Pack star, Sammy Davis, Jr. He’d started performing when he was only four, and had never attended school. Sammy couldn’t read or write until he was an adult, and always regretted it. He urged his wife to reach out to kids and emphasize the importance of getting an education. Together, the women set out to accomplish this through their stories and future films. A Detour to Mexico was their first project.

The film’s progress is significant for another reason. Altovise endured a long battle with alcoholism, and struggled to overcome the stigma associated with addiction. “In fact . . .” says Sherrod, “she was told she’d never be anything but a famous man’s wife, or rise above her battle with alcohol to accomplish anything.”

“I beg to differ with that,” Sherrod continues. “Altovise helped create a magnificent story, and I wish that she was here to finally see it produced.”

Sherrod looks forward to discovering and showcasing the talent of emerging new artists, and hopes that the contests, as well as the film, will be the beginning of exciting new careers for the contest winners.

‘A Detour to Mexico’ Video Contest showcases the acting and production skills used to produce a three-minute scene from the story. One prize of $500 is awarded to the winner (s) of this competition, as well as the opportunity to star in the film.

‘A Detour to Mexico’ Musicians’ Contest is based on a music-related scene from the screenplay and showcases the vocalist, band and/or singing/dancing group that wins the best videotaped performance of an original arrangement. One prize of $500 is awarded to the winner (s) and the opportunity to perform in the film.

There is a $10.00 Entry Fee for each contest, and the deadline for both competitions is November 30, 2012.

Screenwise Film & TV Acting School Launches A Brand New Website With Online Course Enrolment

Screenwise, the Sydney Film & TV Acting School that trained Isabel Lucas, Todd Lasance and BAFTA nominee Chris Hemsworth, has undergone a major online transformation, allowing the Sydney Acting School to process applicants directly via www.screenwise.com.au for the first time ever. The brand new Screenwise website, with its fresh design makeover, will make course enrolment for both longterm courses (such as the government accredited Diploma of Screen Acting), and short courses (such as Screenteens, Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced), a much smoother process. Thus the web-savvy, computer literati are welcomed to Screenwise with open arms in 2012, gaining more immediate access to the award winning Actors, Directors & Casting Consultants who teach at the Sydney acting school.

2012 will also see Screenwise welcome a brand new set of students to it’s new, government accredited Diploma of Screen Acting. The Diploma was created to provide intense training in the unique acting skills and techniques required to meet the demands of today’s Film & TV industry. Naturally the Diploma is not an Actor’s only option as not all jobbing actors have the time needed to invest in such a rigorous program. Thus Screenwise offers Screen Acting Beginners and Screen Acting Intermediate short courses, which run on Saturday mornings from Feb 18 to March 24, to allow actors to hone their craft, and gain valuable film & TV acting experience without impeding on their fulltime work commitments.

The increased popularity in courses at Screenwise is clearly derived from the current industry sphere; the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) statistics show that 85% of an actor’s career-long income will be derived from television. As there is little work available in the Australian Theatre industry, for most actors the medium of screen will be their bread and butter. The rise in quality Australian television productions, such as The Slap and the Underbelly Series, is making it easier for new actors to be recognised nationally and internationally and opens up a larger number of doors into the industry.

In industry related news, past Screenwise students Todd Lasance and Chris Hemsworth continue to make waves in the TV & Film industries. Aside from Hemsworth’s highly anticipated role as The Huntsman, opposite Twilight star Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman, he has been nominated for a BAFTA award in 2012, while Todd Lasance recently fulfilled a request to present an award at the 2012 inaugral AACTA awards.
