In an independent film that begins shooting on the East End this month, two rich kids from Mexico who came to New York City to party are caught up in case of mistaken identity and end up in the Hamptons after fleeing an INS agent.
Production on the feature-length independent film, “El Cielo Es Azul,” began in Manhattan on Monday and will move to the East End a week later. It is the directorial debut for Andrew Fierberg, a producer of more than 30 films, including “The Windmill Movie,” an experimental documentary set on the South Fork.
East End filming locations include Riverhead, Flanders, Southampton and Wainscott. One scene is slated to be shot at in Southampton.
Produced by Juan Aura and Per Melita, “El Cielo Es Azul” stars Miguel Rodarte, Osvaldo Benavides, Stefanie Sigman and Barbara Sukowa. Steven Fierberg is the cinematographer.
East End Studios in Speonk cast the extras.
Jim Vignato, of Westhampton, the executive producer of East End Studios, said he is still in need of extras of varying ethnicities and babies. Headshots and resumes can be submitted to email@example.com.
Vignato said the film will be predominantly in English, but also include Spanish.
