Rick Faugno’s Film ‘Virgin Alexander’ Screening at Rutgers Tonight–Sneak Peek of Sparta Independent Interview!

June 4th, 2011

“Virgin Alexander,” starring Rick Faugno, will have a screening tonight at the New Jersey International Film Festival held at Rutgers University! Rick was recently interviewed by Jennifer Jean Miller of the Sparta Independent, his hometown newspaper. Here’s a sneak peek:

The brainchild and first feature film of directors and writers Charlotte Barrett and Sean Fallon, and starring Rick Faugno, who hails from Sparta, “Virgin Alexander” has been gaining popular momentum and garnering awards at film festivals around the country. Although not yet released, it has been screened at the Black Hills Film Festival in South Dakota, and the D.C. Independent Film Festival. It is scheduled for the Las Vegas Film Festival, deadCENTER Film Festival in Oklahoma City, VisionFest in New York City, and closer to home at the New Jersey International Film Festival held at Rutgers University, in New Brunswick on Saturday, June 4 at 7 p.m.

Faugno speaks as highly about his work on the film. “They are a very talented team, and it is a great film.”

Faugno had some film experience prior, including parts in “Two Bits,” “Looking for an Echo” and the TV series, “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.”

He compared the differences of working on the stage, against the screen. “It’s a completely different art form, you adjust to the smallness of the screen versus the bigness of the stage,” Faugno said. “Everything is dialed up and has to be big to be seen and heard onstage.”

When asked if he relates to the character of Alexander, his response is a surprising yes. “I was never the popular kid in school, I was shyer around others back then, and in social situations, I was more to myself,” Faugno said.
