Danger Zone Cast & Crew Members

Back in November, Ryan raised over one thousand dollars to produce a double feature which included Danger Zone and Blackout. Out of the two films, Danger Zone is the first to be completed and screened in front of a large audience. Ryan is very excited to send Danger Zone out to film festivals in the New York/New Jersey area. Ryan is also gearing up for the next film, Blackout. 

 Danger Zone begins with Frank Serco, who wakes up trapped in a white room with no recollection of how he ended up there. While trying to escape, Frank slowly remembers the events that took place before his abduction. Through a series of flashbacks, Frank realizes that this is not your average kidnapping. Chris Robertson (from Clifton, NJ) stars as Frank Serco along side supporting characters played by Lia Sprechini, Alex Velez, & Mike Fresta (Montclair State Alumni). Written & Directed by Ryan Polukord with Cinematography by Edmund Tan II (Montclair State Alumni). Assistant Directed by Amanda Goscinski (Belleville Alumni) and music by Kevin Macleod. Makeup by Becky Dentato (Belleville Alumni) & Danielle Lampo. Special Costume Design by Steven & Ray Defendini.

Ryan would like to thank his cast & crew for their brilliant work. Ryan would also like to thank everyone who donated money through Kickstarter to help fund this project (List of Kickstarter Backers below). Ryan would like to specifically thank his Executive Producers Gary, Liz, Ashley, & Rob Goglia, Ed & Nick Sprechini, and Chris & Elizabeth Jackson. Ryan says, "I could not have produced this film if it weren't for my Kickstarter Backers and my Executive Producers. Thank you all so much". Ryan would also like to thank his brother Kevin, and Gianna Giarrusso (Both Belleville Alumni) for taking on the role of Production Assistants and dressing up as Aliens in his film.
