Tony Doupe joins the cast of Music of the Spheres

Friday, February 20, 2015

Prolific Shoreline-based actor Tony Doupé has joined the cast of the sci-fi web series Music of the Spheres. In the past two years alone Doupé has acted in 19 different films, television, and web series including Eden, Laggies, and Safety Not Guaranteed. Doupé can currently be seen acting opposite Reese Witherspoon in the Oscar-nominated film Wild.

Doupé will be playing Dan, a desperate father with a death wish who is also stuck in a time loop that is causing his mind to deteriorate.

Doupé, besides being a working actor, is a professor at Shoreline Community College in the drama and film department.

The cast of Music of the Spheres already includes a bevy of Washington talent including actors who’ve been on nationally-televised shows like Syfy’s “Z Nation” and NBC’s “Grimm.” Rosalie Miller is attached to play the main character, Angela. The primary cast also includes Wonder Russell (Elizabeth/Betty), Lowell Deo (Scott), Jennifer True (Petra), and Jodie Harwood (Pam).

Award-winning filmmaker Ruth Gregory is the creative force behind “Music of the Spheres.” A project she categorizes as an interactive, female-centered, sci-fi web series.

“I decided that after producing ‘Maikaru’ (which won best documentary short at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival making it Oscar-eligible) that it was time for a new challenge,” Gregory said, “I’m a huge sci-fi fan and have always wanted to take the plunge in that direction as a filmmaker. This just seemed like the right time to try something new.”

But an interactive web series? How does that work?

“The net is a great communication tool so why not invite your audience into the creative process instead of just presenting your show like we’ve done for years on network television,” Gregory states. “I was thinking about it in a very formalist manner – as mediamakers no one has really tried to maximize what you could do with media on a platform like the internet and I wanted to explore the possibilities.” 

The “Music of the Spheres” episodes will be freely available on the web, but the pay community that surrounds the show – the Order of the Spheres – will financially and creatively support the show as it moves forward. “We wanted to give our pay fans the opportunity to be a part of the show in a unique way. And you can’t get much more intimate that becoming a part of the creative process!”

The actors are excited and intrigued by the possibilities crowd sourcing the material could take. Jodie Harwood (Pam) stated that she: “…can’t wait to see where the audience takes them!”

To join the creative community behind “Music of the Spheres” help crowdfund the series between now and 10pm on March 1 at Where's Angela?
