A 10-year-old Newman girl landed a part in an independent film which will make its debut this weekend at the Modesto Graffiti-Con comic and car show.
Autumn Shea, the daughter of Carrie and Gerald Shea, appears in the movie “Together,” which according to a synopsis features the story line of a “bio-hazard remediation cleaner who finds the integrity of her business threatened after hiring a technician with an insatiable appetite for his work.”
Autumn’s manager submitted her for consideration of a role in October, and she landed a part in the production.
She filmed in Los Angeles in November.
“It was a lot of fun. It only took us a few takes and we had it,” Autumn reported.
In the film, she portrays the film’s lead character as a child.
“It is a real exciting movie,” Autumn said. “I have seen the trailer, and it looks very cool.”
Carrie Shea said “Together” will screen at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 23, at the comic and car show, which is held at the Modesto Centre Plaza. Autumn and director Ryan Oksenberg will take part in a question-and-answer session afterward, she said.
“Together” will make its world premiere the following weekend in the International Competition category at the Bucheon Film Festival in South Korea. That festival, Carrie Shea said, is the largest event of its kind in Asia.
