Actor and singer Paul WilsonJune 20, 2009 - CLEARWATER, FL - Singer/Actor Paul Wilson has been added as a special guest performer at the upcoming Sunscreen Film Festival concert/fundraiser on June 20th at the Ft. Harrison Hotel. The event features the concert “Hit Songs From Stage and Screen” and will be accompanied by the screening of two entertaining and uplifting short films, as well as  great desserts and libations. Paul will join the fabulous “Broadway & Beyond” group, featuring Joanie Sigal and Tom Godfrey, the nimble fingers of Jim Nelson backed by  the mellow tones of the Fort Harrison Band.

“Broadway and Beyond” has performed all over the Tampa Bay area and has delighted audiences with their mix of Broadway hits and comedic timing.

Paul Wilson has sung with some of the country’s most prestigious orchestras and conductors including Robert Shaw, Leonard Slatkin and Skitch Henderson, and has performed in American Stage productions of Shakespeare in the Park.

This year marks the 4th year that the Sunscreen Film Festival has brought innovative independent films to the Clearwater-St. Pete area. The festival delivers workshops for actors, writers, directors and producers - bringing in industry professionals, casting directors, acting coaches, directors, producers and stars such as Michael Rooker, Bill Cobbs and Patrick Wilson (star of Little Children, Watchmen and Phantom of the Opera and Paul’s younger brother).

Heartwarming, Enchanting, Award Winning Short Films “Struck” and “Validation” to be ShownA still from the short film, “Validation”

We are excited to be screening “Struck”,
a short film that has won over 12 film awards over the past year, as well as being an official selection at the Cannes Online Film Festival. The film was produced by Nathan Lorch and directed by Taron Lexton, whose award-winning ads and short films have been featured on MTV, Fox and the Discovery Channel. The star-studded cast features Bodhi Elfman, Beth Riesgraf, Nancy Cartwright, Jason Dohring, Marisol Nichols, Jenna Elfman, Kelly Preston, Jennifer Aspen, Erika Christensen and Ethan Suplee.

We are also screening the heartwarming short film “Validation”- the story of a parking lot attendant that changes the lives of everyone he meets. How he does this will inspire you and bring a smile to your face. Validation is directed by Kurt Kuenne (named one of the Top 25 New Faces of Indie Film by Filmmaker Magazine) and stars Jonathan Atkinson.
