Harrisburg, PA, January 19, 2016 — Harrisburg-based RAWI Positive Note production company announces casting for the feature length film The Gifts, starring Hershey teen Rory Nicole Ogden. Shooting begins in April for the family-oriented film.
Scheduled for filming in the greater Harrisburg area, The Gifts tells the story of true friendship between teenaged Joella (Ogden) and her mysterious neighbor (portrayed by Harrisburg actress Spirit Free), who is stricken with cancer. Its lesson: the most important gifts we give and receive are the ones from the heart.
“We are so excited to have such an incredible cast – especially a young talent such as Rory. This role takes a skilled actor to bring Joella to life,” says writer/producer Randa Wise. “The entire cast has an amazing chemistry that will warm people’s hearts.”
For her part, Rory was excited about her character’s role and “bringing her to life.”
Rory Nicole Ogden has appeared in film, commercials, television, and her own music video. Look for her later this year on several episodes of What Would You Do? With John Quinones on ABC Primetime and as Madison in This House Has People In it, a new show on the Adult Swim network.
Ogden recently received Screen Actors Guild eligibility and plans on joining SAG in the near future, making her one of the youngest SAG actors in the Central PA region.
The Gifts will be the fourth film production of RAWI Positive Note, following Loud Sound of Silence, Showdown In An American Jungle, and Someone’s Coming to Dinner. RAWI is a minority owned company whose films shoot in the greater Harrisburg area.
