Congratulations to Matt Risoldi for his nomination for C-47 Best Actor 2013!
Matt Risoldi tackled the role of the monster. His interpretation of Mary Shelley’s character brings the monster “to life” by connecting with the audience. He provides a compassionate character who later falls from innocence.

<<What I really liked about the film was how actor Matt Risoldi portrayed the Monster. Instead of Electrodes, he had a steam apparatus attached to his neck, releasing steam in bursts as he talked and moved. Risoldi towers over the rest of the cast. He emotes well, and is quite believable as the Monster. The Monster is sympathetic, even to his creator for a moment. He screams, he rants, he rails, it is the Monster, not the Mad Scientist, who admits that he “IS ALIVE!!!!”>>
Here is small sneak peak of some moments in the first 10 minutes of Frankenstein’s Monster.
Hi, Judith B. Shields here. I just wanted to give a quick update. We’ve been in the middle of filming for the last two weeks and we have one week to go. I am amazed at the progress we’ve made. Thank you everyone for your support.
So what’s new? We’re in the Galveston Daily News today–sixth page, straight off of the press in the “county” section.
Thank you Little Green Schoolhouse for allowing us to shoot at your location!
I am thrilled to have the privilege of working with such an amazing cast and crew. My focus has been creating a light Steampunk neck brace for one of the characters in the film. I am posting my progress so far to give you an insider preview to how hard each of us are working to capture the vision of our wonderful Judith B. Shields’ film! It is sure to be a delight! Stay tuned and check back often for more sneak peeks into creating Frankenstein’s Monster (a Steampunk-light independent film!) Photos and maybe even a few secrets here and there. You never know what is around the corner!
