Rachel Galvin is looking forward to being a part of Jose Prendes’ “The Haunting of Whaley House.” Galvin has been anxious to work with Prendes for quite some time ever since she found out some of her friends were in his film “Corpses Are Forever.” Since she lives in Florida and the production is taking place in Los Angeles, instead of flying to LA, he devised a plan for her to be a part of the film while still in Florida. She will play the 9-11 operator. She has been an operator before and also has done many voice over roles.
Rachel Galvin has joined the team at Campfire Productions to help with the making of “Dakota Documentary,” a documentary about the iconic Dakota Apartments in New York City. Being a History major, Galvin is pleased to be doing research on the history of this landmark. To find out more about this project, directed by Scott Cardinal, visit www.dakotadocumentary.com.
On Jan. 3, Rachel Galvin shot a short film called “Someone Special,” directed by Talina Adamo. She played the girlfriend who finds out her boyfriend is married. On left, Rachel is pictured on the set before an emotional scene.
In an attempt to raise excitement about the upcoming filming of the highly anticipated Sci-Fi webseries “Absolution,” Rachel Galvin created a series of video blogs Oct. 16, which will be aired weekly starting soon on the Absolution website and other venues. Galvin plays Mary Jane Carson, the president of the Scott Dru Fan Club and creator of video blogs done in his honor, as well as his Facebook page, entitled Scott Dru Fans Unite (The site will be launched soon). Carson is not just any fan. This No. 1 fan plans to be Dru’s number one … at all costs.

Rachel Galvin and director Kurt Donath attended the 1st annual Palm Con to promote “Lucky Streak & the Crime Fighters.” The event was a big success. Not only was the film shown, but Donath and Galvin were interviewed by the Pow Wow Show and Donath was interviewed by Nerd Nation, which plans on interviewing the pair again soon. In addition, Comic Privvy did a video interview and many other media outlets and fans came to take photos of Galvin, who manned the booth. Galvin and Donath loved Palm Con and meeting the other people who were attending. They are looking forward to next year’s festivities.
Rachel Galvin just was part of the first table read for the sci-fi webseries “Absolution.” She will be playing an obsessed fan, a part she cannot wait to play. The series has already raised over $15,000 toward production through Kickstarter. They plan to begin production in October in the South Florida area. This film’s proceeds will benefit several nonprofit organizations, including Equality Now , Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts, and Kids Need to Read.
Rachel Galvin and Andrew Brown on set of music video
Rachel Galvin was featured in a music video directed by Troy Bernier of Ginnungagap Filmwerks. The singer is Scott Opiela and the song is “Time to Go, The Sacrifice.” Shooting took place on Aug. 14. The setting was a distant planet. Galvin played an astronaut who must run for her life. NASA may be shut down, but the dreams of planetary travel live on. The outfits may not be as elaborate as a Lady Gaga video, but they were custom-made.
The song is part of the soundtrack for a fun sci-fi romp called “Planeta Desconocido,” a film guaranteed to be unlike anything you’ve seen before. Featuring green screen shots, Tron-esque graphics and a futuristic landscape, the film is a bit like a video game with a game of cat and mouse between good and evil with tragic results.
On July 30, Rachel Galvin was busy acting in a short film for the 48 hour film festival. She worked again with director Kurt Donath, producer Tom Leeman and D.P. Jon van der Baan. Also starring again was Melodie Veverka, who played the lead role. This is the third film that Galvin has been a part of with this crew, but they have done several throughout the years and won many awards in the process. Galvin also worked with this crew in “Lucky Streak and the Crime Fighters,” a feature film. The film won “Best Character.”
The film was written by Melodie Veverka and Rachel Galvin as a mix of “Sex in the City” and “The Hangover.” Although, Galvin’s character seems more “Devil Wears Prada.”
Rachel Galvin has been cast in the upcoming webseries “Absolution.” The web series, which will begin with a pilot, was created by Three Lefts Productions, which was formed by veteran Stage and Screen professionals Robert J. Coward, Ryan Hogge and Elizabeth Garrard. A portion of the proceeds from DVD sales will be going to the charities Equality Now , Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts, and Kids Need to Read.
Galvin will be playing an obsessed fan/ stalker, a part she cannot wait to sink her teeth into.
