On Wednesday August 2 Director Terry Wickham conducted the first “read through” of The Devil’s Five screenplay. This preliminary go around was done on Oovoo, so that actors spread out across the land could attend the webcam session. Ralf Scheepers webcamed from Germany was there along with Kevin Cusick, Lee Baptiste and Sarah Haruko who are playing three detectives in the movie. Two of the actors playing police officers in the film’s first scene, G. Paul Salvetti & Jordan Theodore took part and Emilio Rosa, who recently took over the role of “Sergeant Biehn” was present as well. Altogether it was very productive as little bits of dialogue were tweaked, which will ultimately improve the film and make things better for the actors performing.
When a slight conflict came up during the shooting of “Stash”, Director Terry Wickham suggested to actor G. Paul Salvetti that that he thought it would be better for him to appear in the segment of Devil’s Five instead. Terry says, “I explained that the new character I could see him playing and what happens during the opening scene of the entire feature film, would be something the audience would never forget. After reading the script, G. Paul readily agreed and felt it was a great solution. So G. Paul was the first person cast for Devil’s Five segment having accepted the offer to play “Officer Schiano” in July of 2014.”
Paul Salvetti is an American actor and producer whose interests extend to all aspects of film production.
Born in NY, raised in NJ, he attended G.W.U. in Washington, DC. where he graduated with a B.A. in Criminal Justice. After a “lucky” motorcycle accident, he landed with two feet on Wall Street, working there for a few years as a market-maker before transitioning to medical manufacturing, and then as a mechanic.
G. Paul’s career as an actor began later in life (even though he’s always been told he’s a character). He has a special affinity for period pieces and remains connected to history and art creation with his current profession as a demonstration blacksmith in historic Clinton NJ.
G. Paul remains eternally grateful to all those who have given him the opportunity to shine both in front and behind the camera.
