Heidi Lange has been an active performer for over ten years so far. Upon moving from her hometown in Arizona to New York City, she obtained her B.A. on Liberal Arts in 2011 from The New School, legendary progressive university located in Manhattan, where she received extensive and comprehensive training on theatre and film studies.
As a postgraduate, Heidi has been fortunate enough to find steady work in and around New York as an actor on various independent projects and films; while she also continues resolutely her formal theatre training. At this point in her life she has been thrilled and grateful to be working on such a great project called “CIRCLE”, as well as willing to further pursue her acting career.
Bekir Ognat, clearly intrepid man of many hats, started studying acting 5 years ago as an exciting fun experiment. He earned the nickname “Big Boss” from his acting friends in New York due to his choices during improvisation exercises. Some of these strong choices, however, led him to be kicked out of school where he had been studying the Meisner Technique for 2 years. Nevertheless, he is not easily deterred, and soon after his tenacious curiosity had propelled him on to filmmaking courses at the School of Visual Arts, New York University, New York Film Academy, and the New School. At one point he concurrently had a full time job and classes 7 days a week at different schools. What is more, he sometimes slept in his car, and seriously wished he had an RV to make his life easier.
Down the road, he has now actively taken part in some film projects and he even volunteered in a number of indie movies, including “Hitting Rock Bottom”, and not long ago he also participated as a producer in the short film “Kill St”. Bekir currently has other upcoming movie projects of his own to be developed after this short film “CIRCLE” is fully completed and released. He still takes classes from HB Studio to stay connected to acting, which he firmly believes is the foundation of good filmmakers, writers, and directors.
