Dianna Craig leads the cast in “Revenge, Inc.” short thriller

Headshot_Dianna Craig 2016 (2)Columbus-based actress and writer Dianna Craig will star in the short film, “Revenge, Inc.,” produced by local company Eleven One Productions. Craig wrote the short, which was purchased by Eleven One in the fall of 2017.

“I started writing this script with a role for myself, so that I wasn’t just sitting around and waiting for other work to fall in my lap,” said Craig, a seasoned actress represented by CAM Talent Agency. “What interests me about this character is how we persist in circumstances that feel overwhelmingly negative. Whether it’s guilt or regret because of past actions, frustrations with current events, or friction within an unsatisfying job situation, there are a lot of ways to be overwhelmed but nevertheless, we persist.”

That persistence in the face of emotional dissatisfaction creates an irony that Craig was drawn to writing, and now portraying, saying “The pain of her regret versus the fact that she works in a business that helps other people ease their own pain, without really seeing how to help herself” is what drew her in.
Craig said the notion of this film being interpreted as an alternate reality or “as a glimpse at our totally real and not-too-distant future,” is what she finds most interesting about the script. As for the character, Dianna is drawn to how “she decides to take responsibility and accept punishment, in a way and within a system that she understands.”
Filming begins in 2018.
