synopsis
Randall, a hard working yet fragile soul faces his inner demons buried behind a drag queen persona while pursuing the dream of a lifetime.

director
Over the years Eric Casaccio has been involved in several different areas of the entertainment industry. He got his start performing in Boston Regional Theatre Productions, including Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" as well as the independent feature films "Temps" starring Seymour Cassel and "The North End" starring Frank Vincent. After fulfilling some of his acting goals, he decided it was time to explore other areas of the entertainment industry. During his tenure as an Assistant Casting Director at Boston Casting, he recruited talent for commercials, industrials, theater productions and independent films. In January of 1997, Eric moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and writing and subsequently wrote his first feature screenplay "David's Walls." After completing several drafts, he became determined to bring his creation to life. Shortly thereafter, he became involved in production working on features, commercials and music videos. Combining his experiences in production and casting, he produced a five-minute experimental music video for "David's Walls" offering viewers a brief symbolic vision of the story with abstract glimpses of the main characters. "David's Walls" screened in several festivals around the country, including the Northampton Film Festival and the Long Beach International Film Festival garnering positive reviews along the way. While promoting "David's Walls" on the festival circuit, Eric worked at Merv Griffin's company, The Griffin Group, and later for MRC Public Relations where he worked on the Oscar campaigns for "Gosford Park", "Moulin Rouge" and "The Man Who Wasn't There." Eric's most important accomplishment is "Psychic Glitter," an onstage charity event production responsible for raising $1978.20 for The Trevor Project honoring the memory of Lawrence King, a teenager shot and killed in school for his sexual orientation and gender expression. Eric wrote, produced, co-directed and even played a feature length lead role while spreading awareness for an unforgettable tragedy. Recently, Eric briefly returned to his acting roots as Glen in the feature film "Walk A Mile In My Pradas" starring Nathaniel Martson (One Life to Live), Dee Wallace (E.T.), Tom Arnold (Roseanne) and Bruce Vilanch (Hollywood Squares). During this production of "Freak", Eric's directorial film debut entitled "The Test" premiered at The Marblehead Film Festival. In addition to studying abroad with the London Theatre Program, Eric received his Bachelors Degree from Roger Williams University graduating with honors. He has studied acting at the Michael Chekhov Connection and has appeared in several award winning short films as a member of the Screen Actors Guild.
