“Actor Chaske Spencer, star of The Twilight Saga film series: “New Moon” and “Eclipse” has officially signed on as the lead in the Korinna Sehringer film “Shouting Secrets” which will start shooting in Arizona on April 26th. Spencer will play Wesley Bishnik, a successful young writer in Los Angeles who is called back to his Native American upbringing after ten years in order to visit his sick mother.
This role hits close to home for Spencer who grew up on reservations in Idaho and Montana and left home to pursue his acting career. Spencer has also been very active in showing his support for the Native American Community including raising awareness about the snowstorm disaster victims from South Dakota’s Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe who were without power and water for weeks.
Using his celebrity to spotlight the issue, Chaske alongside manager Josselyne Herman, and Video Army Productions has created a star-studded PSA campaign, benefiting the snowstorm disaster victims from South Dakota’s Cheyenne River Sioux tribe. The PSA’s urge individuals to “shift the power to the people” and help to empower everyone to create sustainable, lasting change in their communities and countries. Celebrity volunteers including “Twilight” series stars: Alex Meraz, Gil Birmingham, Boo Boo Stewart, Julia Jones, and Justin Chon, as well as other celebrities Q’orianka Kilcher, Quddus, Dawn Olivieri, and Danielle Bisutti. This project is one of the UNITED GLOBAL SHIFT project’s that Chaske is championing.
Since the PSA has gone live on February 23rd over 6,000 letters have gone to Capitol Hill from people going to shiftthepowertothepeople.squarespace.com.
“Shouting Secrets” is a film from the creative team, Joke Film Productions, consisting of Producer / Director, Korinna Sehringer (“Survivor”) and Producer Ueli Josef Bollag.
