New Featurette “Swipe NYC” Cast Members Speak OUT (AUDIO)

Produced by Charlotte Robinson



In this exclusive audio montage Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Latina filmmaker Sue Zarco Kramer and cast members of “Swipe NYC” at the 25th Provincetown International Film Festival about her semi-autobiographic dramedy featurette that has already won film festival awards across the country. First we talked to Sue and the film’s star Lisa Edelstein (House, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce) who plays Syd a newly divorced empty nester who throws herself into the vulnerable, scary, sexy world of online dating. Each date serves as a metaphor of Syd picking up the broken pieces of her life and regaining her sense of sexuality, confidence, empowerment and independence. Along the way she encounters her stellar cast of supporting actors including Richard Schiff (Wakanda Forever, The Good Doctor, The West Wing) and Bridget Moynahan (Blue Bloods, I Robot) among others. We also had the opportunity to get their spin on the current WGA Writer’s Strike and address our LGBTQ issues. Then we talked to Richard Schiff who plays Steve about how he got involved in the film and what he hopes to accomplish with his career. Next we chatted with Angela Wong Carbone who plays Jane and David Kelsey who plays Luke about their roles and how David would like to see “Swipe NYC” developed into a streaming series. The film is also produced by Kelsey along with Bridget Moynahan, Heather Sederquist, Cheryl Bayer and Sue Zarco Kramer.

Filmmaker Sue Zarco Kramer is a graduate of UCLA Film School. She graduated winning the coveted Jim Morrison Award for Outstanding Direction and Writing. Kramer has written for almost every studio and made her feature directorial debut with her original feature "Gray Matters" which pays homage to 1940's screwball comedies with one big bang of a modern twist. The film starred Heather Graham, Tom Cavanagh, Alan Cumming, Sissy Spacek, Bridget Moynahan and Molly Shannon in the romantic comedy about a brother and a sister who fall in love with the same woman. "Gray Matters" not only closed the 2007 Santa Barbara Film Festival but was chosen as the Spotlight Film of The Hamptons Film Festival. "Gray Matters" has remained on the top 25 Netflix list of "gay and lesbians hits" of all time. “Swipe NYC” premiered at The Beverly Hills Film Festival in April 2023 winning the best audience award and will be in San Francisco at the Jewish film festival on July 29th & August 4th winning the coveted freedom expression award.
