Marc Dole, daughters Alyssa and Ashley, Chase Bailey, and even myself (Leslie Poston) got in on the action for the filming of Deaf Perception recently. I’m on pins and needles to actually see the final cut! Meanwhile, here is the official description and a link to the trailer on Facebook for your enjoyment:
Starring Alyssa & Ashley Dole
Written by Alyssa Dole
Directed by Alyssa Dole and Chase Bailey
Produced by Karlina Lyons, Wanda & Marc Dole
Director of Photography Jonathon Millman
Gaffer Branden James Maxham
Edited by Marc Dole
Music by Chris Decato
Written, Directed and Starring Deaf 16 year old twin sisters, “Deaf Perception” tells the tale of some of the prejudice that they observe when they are in public. While the hearing patrons around them are captivated by their use of their hands to talk. A group of immature boys makes fun of the sisters, as the sisters discuss how closed minded people can be. But just as they sign this, they themselves see a new sign.
Actress Adrienne Montezinos has been very busy since playing Dr. Leder in “Crooked Lane”!
Adrienne played The Woman, one of the lead characters in a short film called, “The Madman’s Garden”, written and produced by Brandon Hutchinson and Directed by Phil Darius Wallace. Brandon took his inspiration from the poetry of Khalil Gibran to create a story about a world where clothes have just been invented.
She helped write and played the title character in the comic short film “The Marriage Counselor”, written and directed by Steve Day of Caldera Productions.
Adrienne played Liz, the main character’s wife in “Workaholics Anonymous,” another short film Directed by Rob Bartolome of RAB Studios in New Bedford, MA.
In addition to appearing in commercials for Concord Group Insurance and WB Mason, Adrienne is working on “Paradigm”, a tv pilot written by Amherst, NH co-creators Deborah Whitaker and Justin Scarelli and Directed by Justin Scarelli in which she plays lead character Christine, older sister to former astronaut Rachel, who has allegedly stopped aging.
She has been cast in the short comedy, “One Stop Holiday,’ by writer Anthony Cogliandro, directed by Ryan Davis also in Pre-Production.
Adrienne will be playing Bianca Sorrento in Pietro D’Alessio’s series Proper Manors, for which she was also the Casting Director. She just held callbacks with Co-Casting Director Pietro D’Alessio in Portsmouth, NH for the short film “The Techsorcist”, by writers Mike Walsh and Dave Langley, who will also direct.
As a model, she appeared in the print campaigns for KoKo Fitness and Carnival Cruise.
The Mayor of Portsmouth appointed Chase Bailey, owner of Left Bank Films and writer/director of Crooked Lane, to the local board of Portsmouth Public Media, in charge of public access media in the area.

Can you spot Chase Bailey and other Crooked Lane alumni in this NH Magazine March 2010 layout?
Marc Dole, who handled VFX and Editing for Crooked Lane, and Chase Bailey are working on Marc’s daughters Alyssa and Ashley’s short film Deaf Perception together. Marc and Chase have also managed to get 52 other locals involved, many of whom are familiar cast and crew from Crooked Lane as well, making this both a family and a film family production.
In this portion of our interview, Crooked Lane producer Mark Constance talks about the difference between NH up front benefits to filmmakers versus the MA Film Tax Credit:
Crooked Lane alum Mark Constance sat down with us recently for a conversation on some of the latest news in film. Here is his take on the Massachusetts Film Tax Credit issue, why the credit is important to filmmakers in the area, and how the threat of losing it or having it capped is already affecting local film.
He recently contributed to an artist’s tribute to the Dalai Lama. There is a lovely write-up of the exhibit by FIU here (with video). Chase is featured about 1 minute in.
