After being born one spring in NYC, Marlene Rhein decided the world needed more laughs. And compassion. After spending her imprisoning years as a gothic teenager in suburban Long Island, she attended Ithaca College’s Film Program on a Rod Serling Screenwriting Scholarship.
Since then she has directed over 60 music videos (including 2Pac’s last and one for Amy Winehouse), commercials, short films, a feature, and several comedy web series (https://www.youtube.com/user/MsGrooveChic).
She attended the Joanne Baron/DW Brown school of acting in Los Angeles and has since gone on to pursue writing / directing / acting all at once. She alleviates her loneliness by dancing to old school hip hop and house music on the various dance floors of NYC.
“Marcia Wallace, L.C.S.W/ M.S.W.”
Sachi Parker is an accomplished, worldly actress, who has garnered experience in Film, TV, and theater. She won best actress in Japan for her role of the grandmother in “The Witch of the West is Dead”. She is also known for her roles in “Peggy Sue Got Married”, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Back to the Future”. She is fluent in Japanese and French and lives in Manhattan with her daughter and two dogs, which makes her significantly less lonely in this city of 8 and a half million. Sachi might say that she was drawn to this project because of her many years of therapy herself, and how she can reach out to those who feel the way she once did.

Web and Interactive Guy
Minnick grew up in suburban Detroit and has been doing strange things with computers for as long as he can remember. Today, he writes fictional and non-fictional books and enjoys distance swimming. He knows a thing or two about loneliness and believes it’s the only logical state of being — not to mention the most productive. http://www.chrisminnick.com
