(NEW YORK, NY)
Barry Bergman is pleased to announce that client Billy Harvey, the well respected Los Angeles based musician formerly from Austin whose critically acclaimed first four albums established him as an important musical voice is successfully transitioning to acting with starring roles in two upcoming feature films.
Harvey stars in the Mark Dennis/Ben Foster dramatic thriller, “Strings,” a film that has already become a festival sensation, scoring the prestigious Ensemble Award, Audience Award and Best Song nod (for Harvey’s original tune, “The Greatest Escape”) at the Breckenridge Festival of Film in Colorado. For a quick look at the trailer, visit http://stringsmovie.com/.The movie explores the life of a musician (Harvey) who submits to experimental psycho therapy only to discover that part of his transformation involves his becoming part of an extremist vigilante group. Harvey’s “Greatest Escape” is featured on his current CD, “The EverlastingWar.”
Harvey’s other featured role is as an Ex-pat in the Spoonbill Pictures dark comedy, “Taiwan Oyster,” directed by Mark Jarrett and shot in part in the exotic capital and other locations on the island. Both films allow Harvey the opportunity to display his impressive dramatic capabilities.
“Strings” will be featured at the White Sands International Film Festival in Las Cruces, NM August 25-28 and at the Tulsa International Film Festival September 22-25.
Commenting on Harvey’s recent activity, Barry Bergman said, “I’ve always known Billy Harvey was a Renaissance artist, capable of succeeding in any field he enters. His work in these two films confirms the belief I’ve had in him from the day we met. He’s a remarkable talent with limitless potential.”
