That's A Wrap !!!! Dreamin' Out Loud Entertainment and LUSIV Studios Complete Filming of Music Video/Short Film Project

It's a wrap!!!! The primary filming collaborative effort between Dreamin' Out Loud Entertainment and LUSIV Studios on the music video/short film for the country ballad "Can't We Be Friends?" was finally brought to fruition. The project which started taking shape and being planned in January of 2022 was finally put to film on March 18, 2022 in Kansas City North. Post-production will now begin with Rhett Orta at the helm.

The country ballad which is set to release on Dreamin' Out Loud Entertainment late summer 2022 is a song about a marriage that has ultimately come to an end. Originally produced & recorded in Nashville, TN. by Jesse Grisham, owner of Arcsea Studios with vocals by Christy Hitch and Jesse Grisham in 2021, the music video/short film project was taken on by Kansas City Film Institute student, Rhett Orta and his company LUSIV Studios.

Based in both Kansas City and Clearwater/Tampa Bay Area, Lusiv Studios produces work that is as memorable as barista spilling coffee on a customers shoes. "We're kept up at night deciding whether a clip should be 0.025 seconds longer as we obsess over the tiny things that make a creative project truly exceptional. Our goal every time we sit down to create is to make something that's; completely distinct, unforgettably impactful, and undeniably excellent", says owner Rhett Orta. 

The primary actors in the production were Jessica Whitfield & L. Tanner Smith, themselves both Kansas City area filmmakers & actors. 

Jessica Whitfield earned her BFA in Theatre/Acting from Drake University, where she was an Irene Ryan Nominee. She is now living in Kansas City where she has worked as a stage actor, a stand-up comedian, and even a puppeteer. Steve Wilson of Broadway World calls her, "Marvelous," and says, "She has a good sense of comedic timing, utilizing humorous facial expressions, body language, and accent to keep the audience laughing." In 2015, Jessica made the transition from stage to screen and in 2016 she landed a supporting role in her first feature film, The Brutal 9. Jessica was also in Nashville recording artist Chelsey James' music video "Steady".

L. Tanner Smith, originally from Manila, Arkansas is also an actor and filmmaker. He's made and produced many films over the years with his latest effort, "Millennial With A Cane" being nominated for many awards at the 2022 Sunny Side Up Film Festival in Miami, Oklahoma.

As of May 7, 2022, Millennial With A Cane News:

Sunny Side Up Film Festival:
Official Selection, Award Winner (Best Supporting Actor, Best Comedy Feature, Best Inspirational Film), Award Nominee (Best Feature Film, Best Director [Feature], Best Actress [Feature], Best Actor [Feature], Best Supporting Actress [Feature], Best Drama Feature, Best Dramedy Film).

Bare Bones International Film & Music Festival:

Keep an eye out for both the video and the song which will be released late summer 2022!
