Films Royale Interviews Polypore actor Vania Bezerra

Tell us a little about yourself.
I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where I worked as an actress and model before enrolling in law school. I thought my acting background would be an asset in the courtroom, but it really just reminded me of what my heart wanted, so I moved to New York City to expand my opportunities in the entertainment industry.

How did you get into acting?
It was something I really wanted to do, I knew it when I was really young, and I wasn’t going to let anything stand in my way. You know those things you want so much you’d do anything? I knew my parents maybe weren’t going to be supportive, so I decided to enroll in acting classes without their permission. They’re absolutely supportive now, of course, but at the time I wasn’t so sure. It was something I just felt compelled to do.

Are there any actors that inspire you?
I love Kate Winslet, Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore specifically, because each of them take on challenging, dark roles that allow them to go places they probably don’t in their non-acting lives. I love the courage of a metamorphosis like that, how easily they slip into characters so different from themselves. I love how freeing that feels as an actress, and those are the kind of roles I like for myself as well. I also really loved the innocence of Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias. That was one of the first movies that moved me, and her part was one I could see myself playing.

Do you have any other fun hobbies?
I love to travel. Seeing new places never loses its excitement. I really like to take cooking classes when I do visit new places, so that I can share the experience with my friends when I get home. There’s no better way to immerse yourself in a culture than through its foods, and sharing those flavors with my friends is one of the ways I show them how much I love them.

Tell us about your character in Polypore.
I play a film blogger who sits down to interview Mr. Kaufman, a film director who is working on a zombie movie. The interview is fast-paced and packed with elements of farce – especially when our sit-down is infiltrated by a key chase scene, so it was a really fun role. I was the sane one surrounded by lunacy.

What is your favorite film genre?
I wouldn’t say I have a favorite genre, per se. I just really like interesting stories. If the story is compelling, it doesn’t really matter if it’s a comedy or a drama or an action flick. A great story can cross genres.

Your favorite film character?
I just watched Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, and am so drawn to characters like that, so vulnerable and complex and well crafted. Kate Winslet’s role in Little Children was so dark and intense, really packed with emotions. I also loved the substance of Michelle Williams’ role of an angst-filled wife in Blue Valentine.

Your favorite scene in Polypore?
I love the first scene, when the main character realizes he has telepathy he never asked for.

Where do you see Films Royale going in the future?
Jesse Barack is so young to have accomplished so much. He’s really a great writer and director, and also a very cool guy. The company has several films under its belt. I predict nothing but good things given the talent and drive behind the scenes.

Thanks for the interview, where can our fans see more of your work?
Thanks so much to you, as well! You can visit my website, vaniabezerra.com, to learn more about me and my work.

Polypore Review on The Final Cut


Films Royale Interviews Polypore actor Rob Slocum

Tell us a little about yourself.
Rob Slocum, an actor stuck in a working mans body lol. I love my life, where I’ve been and where I am right now. The best part of my life is what is yet to come. I hope to continue entertaining people for as long they will have me.

How did you get into acting?
I started acting in grammar school and always loved being on stage. As I got older I did extra work an searched all over to join and be part of the local acting community. As I auditioned I won many roles in film and on stage and TV. This told me I was in the right place now I just need one of my many projects to take me to the proverbial next level.

Are there any actors that inspire you?
I am inspired by so many actors and actresses. Many you have never heard of and may not ever know. Christian Bale comes to mind along with Matthew McConaughey, two actors who morph into the roles they portray.

Do you have any other fun hobbies?
I love to ride quads in the woods or just hike thorough nature. I also scuba dive and target shooting is a favorite. Golf is something that I enjoy but I never want any my rounds of golf to be on film, yes I’m that bad.

Tell us about your character in Polypore.
My character is the quintessential Brian Williams type of news reporter that is going for the story no matter what. I thought of him as either needing one more big story to make head anchor or maybe he is there already and feels he needs to be the best to stay there. Either way he believes it is his duty to get the story to the people.

What is your favorite film genre?
My favorite genre is science fiction but comedy might edge out Sci-Fi a bit. I love the roles that make the audience think they have it all figured out only to find that my character pulled one over on them.

Your favorite film character?
I cannot choose one character as my favorite because of my varied love of film, stage and TV. Way too many to choose just one.

Where do you see Films Royale going in the future?
I would hope to see Films Royale go the distance. I hope to get a call from my friend and creative genius Jesse Barack, telling me “my office is ready now get to work and let’s make some movies.” You see, as many other actors are, I am an aspiring writer and director. Many production houses start this very way. One small short then a full feature or two and the next thing you know there is a set of offices with many creative people working together. They all met along the way and were brought together to make history and some of the best films.

Thanks for the interview, where can our fans see more of your work?
I am on hiatus right now but much of my work is out there, and there is much more to come. Go to NEACTOR.COM or use this link to see some of my work: neactor.com/profile/robslocum

Films Royale Interviews Polypore actor Hugh Reiss

Tell us a little about yourself.
I grew up in Longmeadow MA, playing music at an early age. I then majored in music at UMass Amherst for one year. After college I have been transporting patients in a hospital in Springfield MA up to the present.

How did you get into acting?
I got into acting by a friend who told me of an online television show he was in. I then got a role in that online show.

The actors that inspired me are Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson.

Do you have any other fun hobbies?
My hobbies consist of playing the clarinet, playing tennis and skiing.

Your favorite scene in Polypore?
I believe the whole film has a great story line.

Films Royale Interviews Polypore actor Jack Tracksler

Tell us a little about yourself.
I do a lot of voice over work these days. Kids books, commercials, e-learning, you name it. Finally I’m doing what I started out to do and still no agent! I act in some films and play Santa a lot in December. The rest of the time, I’m just a voice. Hopefully acting and voice over work will keep me busy if I retire from my day job.

How did you get into acting?
I got into acting by accident. I was looking for a “retirement job” and thought I would do voice over work as I was a radio announcer back in the 70’s. Looked for an agent, but couldn’t find one, registered at Boston Casting and got a couple of acting jobs as a featured extra in 3 films. I frankly don’t remember how I met Films Royale.

Are there any actors that inspire you?
I didn’t start out to be an actor and really, no one inspired me. So my approach is try to work hard and deliver the character. If you’re lucky, every now and then, a little magic happens. My magic happened during a student film I did several years ago. I got a standing ovation from the crew after the Director said “cut.” I have no idea if the film was ever finished. I’d love to have a copy of that scene.

Do you have any other fun hobbies?
As for Hobbies, I make wine and have built a couple of acoustic guitars. I have a passion for sailing. I love cooking and would love to have my own show called “Cooking – It’s no big deal.” Showing that great meals are simple to prepare and simple is truly good and elegant.

Tell us about your character in Polypore.
Dr. Tomten is a scientist who at one point in time worked for the Rein Corporation. Now they are hunting him down to try to eliminate him for what he knows about that biopharmaceutical company and clones. He is a Scot and Dr. Jegado’s excesses frustrate him.


What is your favorite film genre?
I am one of the few actors I know who does not go to movies. The last 3 movies I have seen were ones that I was in. My favorite movies are Silverado and Wind – go figure.

Your favorite film character?
I tend to like actors who are in British Television mystery programs. David Suchet as Hercule Poirot, Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Homes. Suchet is very talented and broad in character development from Poirot to villains and everything in-between.

Your favorite scene in Polypore?
My favorite scene in Polypore was when Dr. Jegado and I were with the “Escort” and he was negotiating price. All during rehearsal and table reads I thought the “Escort” was a tour guide. It wasn’t until she came on set in full wardrobe that her real job sunk in. I guess I’m just not as worldly as I thought!

Where do you see Films Royale going in the future?
Films Royale runs a great set. They start on time and finish on time. A rarity in the 20 or so films I’ve been in. Polypore was quite an epic and friendships made during the filming of it remain to this day. I thank them for the opportunity and the introduction to some really great professionals.

Thanks for the interview, where can our fans see more of your work?
I have a listing on NE Actor. I believe there is a scene from Polypore there: neactor.com/profile/jacktracksler

Polypore Reviewed by Mike Haberfelner

As weird stories go, this one starts with a puked on plant – thing is that the person who puked on the plant was on experimental (yet legally obtainable) drugs. The plant owner tosses it out of course, but Paul (Jeffrey Bielat), a jobless youngster, takes it in, gets to breath its spores … and weirdly enough develops the ability to read minds. He tries to find out the cause for this, and everything seems to lead back to the Rein Corporation, an international pharma company that experiments in fields far beyond the purely therapeutical (let alone the safe). His research eventually leads him to Paris and a certain Dr. J├ęgado (Marshall Berenson) … who gives Paul a drug that has him revert to his former self (Chen Tang), which is almost too much for him to take. What’s even worse is of course that corporate assassins from the Rein Corporation are all of a sudden after him and his best friend Trent (Jesse Barack) … and then Trent’s abducted by Dr. Apollo (Jonathan Thomson) and turned into a warmachine with telekinetic powers – and all hell breaks loose.

Paul, who wants to save his friend and get his old self back suddenly finds himself in the thick of it, not only because he has suddenly become a crime target for corporation assassins, but also because he is forced by a group of anti-Rein activists to work with/for them – and suddenly “all hell breaks loose”, as mentioned above, sounds like an understatement.

Polypore is an in recent times increasingly rare specimen of thought-provoking and intelligent science fiction that nevertheless never gets dull. And while I have to admit the very complex story is at times hard to follow (in its complexity rather than its basic narrative), it is incredibly well-paced, finds the right balance between delivering a serious message and outright satire, and has an air of mystery to it throughout to keep the audience guessing. Add to that some great action and locations, a rich visual language, and a solid cast, and you’ve got yourself a pretty good movie.

Recommended!
