Your upcoming movie The Last Beautiful Girl - in a few words,
what is it about?
It's about that first time you fall in love. How wonderful, exciting
and scary it is. And how your world falls apart the first time you might
Why a romantic dramedy, what drew you
to exactly this genre?

Shelby Surdam, Dino Maglaris
They are WONDERFUL. A mix of new and old

fantastic. Derek Babb is back, this time in the role of the party guy.
We've got a cast from across the country: Shelby Surdam and Shelby
Cullinan are both from Austin, playing sisters. We also have local talents
Hannah Holub and Sean Koetting who get to do some GREAT character work.
Dino Maglaris has the unenviable task of playing... me. I'm also very
excited about some of our new talent coming in from out of town. Rachel
