OWEN DOCKERY hails from a Chilean-American family steeped in the performing arts. He's multi-talented and has a passion for many forms of creativity: acting, playing the piano and drums, drawing, painting, building LEGO masterpieces and making up stories. When he's not "working" or going to school, he enjoys watching movies, reading books, bouncing on the trampoline in his backyard, swimming in the ocean and roughhousing with his younger brother, Luke. The short film/proof-of-concept — BOY, ALONE IN WOODS, which is also being developed into a feature project — marks Owen's on-camera acting debut. He especially loved filming in the woods!
GRETL CLAGGETT began acting in professional theater at the age of seven. She holds an MFA in Acting and spent a year at Actors Theater of Louisville, working with the acclaimed director and acting coach, Bob Krakower. For a decade, in her twenties, she starred in numerous Regional and New York Off-Broadway productions. Now, she prefers to be on the other side of the camera: writing, directing, and creative producing. But as acting was her first passion, she holds a great respect for the craft and loves collaborating with actors. She’s also a proud “Aunty” to BOY, ALONE star, Owen Dockery.
JOEL DZIENGIELEWSKI has been an active creative force since childhood singing, sculpting, writing, acting, and blathering. His long-winded orations are best avoided. While uncredited, he appeared prominently in the trailer and stills for FEBRUARY, an award-winning short film which was selected for screenings in notable domestic and international film festivals. He (and likely he alone) considers himself to be perhaps the world's greatest on-demand impromptu haikuist (5-7-5) of modern times. He acted in college and afterwards and was part of a community improv troupe lovingly referred to as the Horses Asses, hailing from Saratoga Springs, New York. He has performed stand-up at various open mics and received a lot of laughs from an SRO audience for his Gotham Comedy Club set in NYC. Joel is currently working on a one-man show based loosely on the extensive musical catalog of Elvis Costello, in which he’ll sing his interpretive renditions of a wide range of Mr. Costello's songs and share his own personal musings inspired by the works.
