Famiglia di Cupo

Another week, another event! Terrazza di Peroni was held on July 11th on the rooftop of the Vancouver Art Gallery. T’was a balmy, enchanted evening and was complimented by free-flowing Peroni beer, freshly shucked oysters, carpaccio and mini arancini. Thank you to the lovely Carine Redmond for inviting us! To keep with the Italian theme, I went with the dynamic and talented Cupo siblings – Antonio and Carmelina.

I am a huge fan of The Vancouver Sun’s Malcolm Parry. Please click on photo below to see his coverage and yet another dazzling Cupo shot. The one below is taken by little old me.

Afterparty is an ensemble drama starring some of Vancouver’s hottest talents including Ali LiebertJodi Balfour of Bomb Girls as well as Graham Coffeng (The True Heroines), Nicholas Carella (The Kennedys), Erica Carroll (Alcatraz), Peter Benson (The Killing), David Milchard (Sanctuary), Christina Sicoli (Supernatural) and Emma Lahana (Hellcats).   This improvised feature is directed by Michelle Ouellet (Hooked on Speedman) and produced by Sociable Films and Big Rig Productions.

Afterparty takes place after a wedding. After newlyweds Matt and Claire depart for their honeymoon, Matt’s brother Charlie (Graham Coffeng) invites the ‘hangers on’ from the reception back to his house in an attempt to keep the party alive. This motley crew is a mix of friends old and new. The high school friends known as ‘The Fellas’ mingle with new spouses, the maid of honor and even the wedding catering staff.

All of the guests at the Afterparty are united in their desire to keep the party going. Some just want to keep the good times rolling, while others are delaying the return to their everyday lives. Everyone’s back together…  but it’s almost morning.
