Film Clip (Quicktime format)

A black comedy about a low-budget film crew trying to shoot a sci-fi movie at the time when an earthquake has been predicted - hoping to get free special effects. Beata Pozniak plays the fearsome Jayce Anderson who pulls out all the stops in taking charge of the career of her husband (Ray Wise), a fading legend of sci-fi B movies.

"Beata Pozniak (who Babylon 5 fans may recall guest starred as President Susanna Luchenko in the episode Rising Star) is convincingly scary as Anderson's power crazy and materialistic wife. She plays the role with an animal like coldness - mainly down to the fact that she is pregnant and trying to protect the future of her and Rex's unborn child." Darren Rea, Sci-Fi-Online Magazine

"It is occasionally said of artists, especially actors, that the person is "an instrument." This is a way of saying that the actor uses her whole being, her whole experience, whole intellect to build her dramatic creation. Beata is a living example of "the human artistic instrument." Her research is relentless but always humanistically compassionate. In the midst of emotional maelstroms, she thinks. Her performances are constructed from a life-wise pragmatism and a deep poetry of the soul. She is an actor's actor". Director John Huff
