Emerging British Actress Stephanie Tripp Signs Contract of Representation With Global Film Actors Agency


HOLLYWOOD, California — March 7, 2021 — British actress Stephanie Tripp will join young Lithuanian Star Greta Goldling, who was featured on the official poster of the 2020 edition of the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, and transgender Filipina actress Sophia Abella, in the cast of the upcoming feature film Spa, written and directed by veteran film auteur Bruno Pischiutta.

The film, to be shot part in London and part in a touristic resort located by the Aegean Sea in Greece, is Pischiutta’s most anticipated film, and it is expected to be his greatest directing performance since Punctured Hope, the critically acclaimed movie on women’s genital mutilation shot in Africa and qualified for nomination consideration at the Academy Awards® in 2010.

Spa is not a violent film; it has, however, a pushed sexual content that is definitely accentuating its dramatic ending.

Spa will be a landmark in movie history because, as Francis Ford Coppola, Pischiutta is not afraid of risk. In this film, he makes an artistic directorial choice about the casting and is organizing a fabulous and priceless ensemble of talent that remembers the one of Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider.

This is what he says: “Today’s love and sexual relationships are more complicated than ever. They could be interracial and they often involve LGBT characters in a kaleidoscope of different nationalities, traditions and ways.

Love relationships are not caused and motivated by logic but by passion, and the strength of passion gives them life and rules them in a constant fluctuating variation that is always interesting and often surprising”.

For Global Film Studio, Spa will be produced by Daria Trifu, who previously produced Punctured Hope with a US $5.8 million budget and +200 cast and crew members.

Spa will be released worldwide by Global Cinema Online, the company’s pay-per-view streaming service for nonviolent films and documentaries (its own ‘Nonviolent Netflix’).

Global Film Studio is financing Spa and its new streaming venture Global Cinema Online through a Pre-IPO Private Placement issued last month.

The total to be raised is US $21.5 million. The PPM is structured to accept subscriptions from institutional investors who have the resources to make large investments, as well as from high net worth individuals who wish to explore investing in media by starting with small figures.

Via this Pre-IPO Private Placement it is now possible to subscribe for Common shares of the Company at US $8.6 per share, from a minimum of US $8,600 per one Unit of 1,000 shares. Financiers from Abu Dhabi, Miami, London and Wall Street have already shown interest in participating. The Executive Summary is here: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Bruno Pischiutta is one of the last great Italian directors of his generation and the only one who has lived in America for almost forty years. During his film career, he has created and developed numerous feature films in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, and has won major awards in several countries.

General Casting Call

The content of this blog is continuously updated and is addressed to worldwide English speaking actors of every gender and age. It is not addressed to our Agency’s actors because I communicate with them directly.

Updated April 23, 2021:

The meetings and readings, via Skype, with the actors who are still being considered for roles in my next film, will be conducted during the month of May. The actors being considered have been contacted and informed by e-mail, and appointments have been booked.

The following information was updated on January 11, 2021.

The Casting call is closed.

We are casting right now for two nonviolent dramatic feature films that we want to produce in Greece as soon as Covid will allow. In this moment, in Greece, there is a very complete and severe lockdown for the next two weeks. Nobody knows what will happen later; probably, the situation of the pandemic will go ahead for some time. We can use this time for the casting; casting is never fast, particularly when it is done virtually.

The films will be distributed by our company that, next year, will be competing with Netflix. We are looking now for non-union actors of all genders and ages worldwide who want to participate to the productions of the films. Leading and supporting roles are available.

The actors who will play in the films will get industry standard compensation + travel, accommodation, and per diem. Very young actors and beginners are specially welcome: minors’ applications should be approved by one parent.

The actors who are pre-selected based on their application will be contacted for a Skype interview and reading. 

Actors interested to apply should write me at: 


In their e-mail, they should specify: birthdate, height, weight, full legal name and every eventual a.k.a., country & city, telephone #, Skype ID, and, of course, they should include some photos.

This Casting Call has been closed on January 10, 2021. If some actors will apply after this date, I’ll do what I can to accommodate them but it will not be always possible.


Here is a short description of the five films scheduled to be produced, and of the attached production team.


Feature Film
THE BAD JOKE is a dramatic feature film that illustrates some unhappy and new challenges that many teenagers face in today’s European Union. THE BAD JOKE is a fruit of fiction; the original screenplay has been written by Bruno Pischiutta.

The film is non-graphic: there is no sexually explicit or violent content. “The bad joke” is what the European Union has created for many teenagers. The phenomenon is unknown in America and it is not yet fully understood in Europe.

This film, for the first time, exposes the unfortunate reality of thousands of European teenagers.

SPA (working title)

Feature Film

SPA is a fruit of fiction and is still in the writing phase. It tells stories full of passion. Greta Goldling has been cast as the starring female character. She will perform the part of a young girl who passes from a bad interracial love story with a boy, to a lesbian affair with a more mature girl. 

SPA tells the story of other very sensual girls and of their relationships.

It is not a violent film; it has, however, a pushed sexual content that is definitely accentuating its dramatic ending.

The film, written and directed by Bruno Pischiutta, is about different relationships. The plot follows several female characters and their love stories that are typical of today’s dating scene.

RETROSPECTIVE (working title)

A 96 minutes Feature Documentary.

The film will be shot in Greece in High Definition (4K) and in Hollywood standard, and it will highlight some of the most revered films of internationally acclaimed film author Bruno Pischiutta.

Pischiutta’s career spans over five decades. His acting performance in Francesco Rosi’s film, Many Wars Ago (Uomini contro), garnered him the Critics Award for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ at the Venice Film Festival in 1972 when he was 19 years of age. He went on to write, direct, produce and edit, critically acclaimed feature films such as Compagne Nude, The Comoedia, Last Encounter in Venice, Life’s Charade, “Maybe…?”, and, amongst others, Punctured Hope.

In the 80s he was awarded at the New York International Film and Television Festival for his film The Comoedia, and formally invited by the Academy Awards® to present it for an Oscar consideration.

In the 90s he was, with Steven Spielberg and Bruno Bareto, one of the three directors formally invited to China by the Shanghai Film Studio to develop and produce films there. In the 2000s he was nominated by The Political Film Society in Hollywood in the categories of ‘Best Film Expose’ and ‘Best Film on Human Rights’ for his movie Punctured Hope, alongside Clint Eastwood (for Invictus), Quentin Tarantino (for Inglorious Basterds), and James Cameron (for Avatar).

“Everybody can judge a movie from what they see and hear, but there are sometimes certain circumstances, motivations and facts regarding a film that we have to know to fully understand its content. This documentary will show parts of several films I made, and it will explain the ‘why’, the ‘how’ and some relevant aspects related to those movies,” says the Maestro.

The first screenplay Pischiutta ever wrote signaled the director’s life-long affection for the sea; in Retrospective, the blue Aegean Sea becomes the backdrop of the story.

The footage of Pischiutta’s past films that will be used in Retrospective will bring the viewers to different locations and to different situations: to a very particular Venice, to New York of the 80s, to the Ghanaian rainforest, and to the Canadian Niagara Falls.

Several guests will appear in the film but the principal structural dialog will take place between Bruno Pischiutta and the Lithuanian actress Greta Goldling, both portraying themselves.

Christmas Holidays 2019

I guess that everybody has plans for the Holidays. Some people like to dedicate time to some special or unfinished parts of their work, while still keeping-up with all the commitments that family and holidays require.

The best spectator, my dog Amico.

In these days, I try to be out in the morning and late evening only: in the morning I play tennis, and in the evening I go for a drink and to listen to some live music. 

I work during the most part of the day because I am putting together the last touches to three different productions. 

The first one will start in early January and it is almost fully prepared: it just still requires some technical elements and the booking of few locations. This is a feature documentary about the films I made since 1972 until now. 

Everybody could judge a film from what they see and hear, but there are sometimes certain circumstances, motivations and facts regarding a film that can help us to fully understand its content. This is what this documentary will be about: it will show certain parts of several films I made, and it will try to explain the ‘why’, the ‘how’ and some relevant facts related to those films.

On a sunny day with my dog Bianca.

The second and the third productions are related between each other: they are a feature film, and a feature documentary about the making of it. 

The shootings of these productions will take place after the first one.

I am preparing this major feature film and its related documentary from long time; in particular, the feature is an important one, because it will be qualified for nomination consideration at the Academy Awards. 

The pre-production of the feature film is very complicated. Everything is ready to go, but I am still working on two aspects: the financing, and the completion of the cast. This is a moment of decisions because some of the choices that I will make will definitely bring a positive change in the life of some of the people who will be chosen to work on the film.

To complete the financing, I still need few account executives and one Associate Producer. These people will be working with me not only in this project, but also in my upcoming productions of the next three years.

About the casting: the feature film has over 35 characters and several special appearances. I believe that I have chosen the proper actors to fill the existing roles. I am, however, still missing one actress 15/17 years old, who’s native language should be English, and who should have the determination and the necessary qualities to become a film Star.

I know that I will not find the Associate Producer and the missing actress under the Christmas tree, and consequently, I have to locate them in these days, while still enjoying the Holidays.

Happy Holidays to all the visitors of this site,



On October 31, 2018 our company published an International Casting Call to find the actors we need for the productions we schedule to do in the next two/three years. The budget of these productions amount to US $27,800,000.

The scheduled productions are:

  1. THE BAD JOKE feature film;
  2. A TV SERIES of 13 Half Hour Films of different cast;
  3. UNTITLED 906 feature film;
  4. SINS AND SINNERS feature film.

One of the Divisions of our company is a Talents Agency. The Division’s name is Global Film Actors Agency (www.globalfilmactors.com). Our Agency is only for film actors and gives to the members the best possible deal: an engagement prize in company’s shares, it does not charge any fees whatsoever and it does not charge any commission from the actors. The Agency has only few members, about 40. They have been chosen between the best English speaking actors worldwide. We have very good actors but we don’t have, in the Agency, a number of them big enough to fulfill our casting need for the scheduled productions. This is why we published our International Casting Call.

The results of our Call were great: we had about 250 actors answering. Many of them are very good actors, some of them, about ten, also applied to be members of our Agency.

In the last three months I have studied all I could about the actors who answered our Call; I respect the actors very much. I was one of them years ago and I know what they are going trough. I watched, whenever possible, their show reels, I wrote to them and I interviewed on Skype and/or WatsApp all of them. I still have to meet one of them because, few days ago, he had to go to a funeral of one of his family members: he will call me when he will be all right.

I met wonderful people and some really great actors. I also met some actors who deserve a shot to stardom and I gave them the possibility to be in our Agency. I had to reject a lot of the applicants (about 180), simply because they were not good enough to participate to our productions.

These are the final numbers:

We have, today, in our Agency about 43 members; they will have priority in the casting.

We have met other actors (about 70) that we will invite to partecipate to our productions: they are mazing artists and I’m looking forward to work with them.

I have to thank Flaminia Graziadei, who will probably be the director of the TV SERIES, for sending to us a number of very good actors.

About the whole experience, I tried to avoid mistakes: mistakes are always possible and, unfortunately, they are always happening. I believe that some of the mistakes I made in this casting were to over evaluate some of the actors.

In conclusions we are OK: we have over 100 good actors, including our Agency’s members, that could work in our productions. The casting, however, is going on: we still need some teen-agers and some kids. I will answer to whomever will apply the whole year around.

If you like to act in our next productions please apply.
