Rachel Galvin stars in John Hamblin’s “Boca Raton: It’s Happening”

DBFF 2011 048On April 14 at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center, a medium-sized crowd assembled to watch the four contestants for the Script to Reel contest. Director John Hamblin was one of the directors brave enough to take on the challenge. The stipulation in creating the quickly-put-together project was that it has to include a certain line of dialogue, feature product placement from the Downtown Boca Raton Film Festival sponsors, it had to feature the mascot Leo–the dog, and a few others fun last-minute things. He pulled it off.

Rachel Galvin was one of the leads. “I played the quirky wife,” she said. “I used a lot of my own personality in the character. I had a blast working with the creative cast and crew. John was great! He allowed us to really make the parts our own and embellish (Improv) as we saw fit. I was able to bring and utilize my own props to really bring the character to life.”

The short film also starred Robert Gordon Spencer, as her husband, Alyn Darnay, Larry Gotterer and other dedicated actors. It shows again on Sunday, April 17, at 5 p.m. at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center.
