Darren Denison has kindly answered some questions regarding his short film, Staged, after he posted a trailer on Vimeo on Tuesday 8th January 2013.


Thank you for posting the trailer this morning, can you tell us more about the production please?

Thank you for your interest in “STAGED” and for wanting to share it on your website. I’m glad you liked the trailer! I was taken aback by all the attention the trailer is getting this morning as it was something done long ago. I just thought my twitter followers would be interested in seeing it and of my experience with Richard and Jennifer. A few of my Twitter followers and Facebook friends requested I share the trailer due to their great interest in Richard and his amazing role in THE HOBBIT. He surely deserves all the success that is granted to him as he was wonderful to work with!

On auditioning Richard for the role of ‘Daryl’:

Richard’s strikingly handsome headshot stood out to me from the 500 submissions sent and I was impressed with what he had done, having been in a few movies and TV programs by then as well as performing in the Royal Shakespeare Company. He was already represented by among the top agents in London. So we met up at my flat in London for an audition/interview. Richard gave a flawless audition with the character of “Daryl Newman”! But what stood out most to me was his personable charm, humility and charisma, which I found endearing and captivating. I cast him on the spot and looked no further! Then the lovely Jennifer Taylor Lawrence (remininscent of a young Lauren Becall) came to the audition and I had her read with him and there was instant chemistry between them professionally and on camera. It’s always wonderful to see when two actors meet and have that instant connection and on screen chemistry. With Jennifer’s infamous voice, her vulnerability as well as her strength as an actress I felt she was Richard’s match and indeed she was!

Where was the film shown?

It was only shown at a couple of private screenings and was never internationally because I had just graduated from University, moved back to California from London and immediately started working for Casting Director Victoria (Burrows – LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY, KING KONG) and then soon afterwards, 20th Century Fox in their Film/TV Distribution division.

STAGED was not shown widely due to my very hectic schedule at the time. It’s a shame as we were all very proud of the piece. Just recently my associate has been updating IMDB with my projects including STAGED, and Richard’s name nor the rest of the crew and cast haven’t been added yet, except for Jennifer Taylor Lawrence and myself.

Many thanks to Darren for sharing. There are no plans to post the film in its entirety at this stage, although he will keep us informed should that situation change.
