TTS Alumni in First Major Motion Picture for YouTube

29 Mar

Two alumni from DePaul’s Theatre School can be seen in the first major motion picture made exclusively for web distribution on YouTube.

John Colella (THE '92)

John Colella (THE ’92) and Reamy Hall (THE ’92) are in the film, Girl Walks Into A Bar,  which opened on March 11 and has been viewed almost 400,000 times so far.

The film is written and directed by Sebastián Gutiérrez, also known for writing and directing the 2009 film, Women in Trouble. It is the first major movie for web distribution that stars a notable cast, including Danny DiVito, Josh Hartnett and Rosario Dawson.

Reamy Hall (THE '92)

The plot follows a group of apparent strangers in interlocking stories taking place in ten different bars during the course of one evening throughout Los Angeles. Colella and Hall are seen in two chapters: in Chapter Two, Colella plays the “creepy” guy, and in Chapter Three, Colella plays “Ralph” and Hall plays “the bartender.”

The film premiered in Hollywood on March 7, and was also screened on March 11 at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. You can watch Girl Walks into a Bar in its entirety for free exclusively on YouTube.

Congratulations to Colella and Hall for being a part of this incredible first!
