American actress, producer, and director, Mitzi Kapture garnered global recognition for portraying Sgt. Lance in Silk Stalkings and was inspired by the prolific series creator Stephen J. Cannell, who supported her interest behind the camera as a storyteller. Having directed several episodes of Silk Stalkings, Kapture continued to explore both sides of the camera. It was from this culmination of her acting and directing experiences that Kapture conceptualized The Process.
“Having been profoundly influenced by Larry Moss as a director, master teacher and author and observing various directing techniques, I was intrigued to take a more in depth look at the dynamics behind the scenes, so I presented the idea to Larry and started documenting the concept for The Process,” states Kapture. She goes on to say, “We began filming with Larry Moss working in multiple venues and masterclass workshops with a variety of artists who contributed to the film.”
A must see for actors, directors or anyone with a dream, The Process is set to World Premiere on Thursday May 18, 2017 at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood with further Special Screening Events scheduled at SAG–AFTRA Theater in Los Angeles for members only on May 25,, 2017 and then in New York at SAG-AFTRA Foundation Robin Williams Theater on June 22, 2017.
