PLYMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, Nov. 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — OCEAN CHILD FILM WRAPT FILMS WITH MERMAIDS IN PLYMOUTH, MA & OAHU, HI

The Plymouth-based SAG-AFTRA actress, award-winning screenwriter, director and producer recently completed her latest film, Ocean Child. Ocean Child is a SAG-AFTRA film recently filmed in Plymouth Beach, The Pinehills in Plymouth, Massachusetts and Kahala Beach in Oahu, Hawaii.

From the writing team of Marilyn Swick from Plymouth, Massachusetts and Laura Koons from Katy, Texas, the two have created a mystical world filled with mermaids, dreams, hope and destiny. The two writers began writing screenplays and producing films together seven years ago in Houston, Texas.

“Marilyn and Laura wrote and created a story that would make any childhood dream come true. They’ve created a magical world that feels heartfelt, inclusive, and most importantly, filled with endless wonder. An incredibly well-crafted and imaginative script with characters that embody their own worlds that you can’t wait to learn more about!” says Heather Whitty, casting director and acting coach.

Shares Ms. Swick, “We chose Plymouth Beach because the rocky beaches best serve to showcase our mystical Mermaid Bay and we loved the rocks.” years of winning laurels at film festivals. The story follows a young girl’s journey to her destiny as a mermaid who, despite her mother’s fears, attends the Underwater School of Mermaid Lore and Neptunism. Her name is Hope and she is a merman just like her father and grandmother.

The diverse cast of Ocean Child traveled from Hawaii, New England, Texas and Virginia to film. The film features eight mermaids aged six and up, including Queen Amara of the Seven Seas and Aria, the music teacher, who plays a magical saxophone and sings from her school of Mermaid Studies and Neptunism. Avery Rodgers from Virginia plays the lead role of Hope and is also a singer and songwriter. She’s about to record the original song “Wish Upon A Starfish” this month. Marilyn Swick plays the role of Serena, Hope’s grandmother who was the original Queen of the Seven Seas, and she too is a mermaid who gave up her mermaid life when she fell in love with a sailor on the Navy ship, the Blue Ghost. Houston native LaTeace Towns-Cuellar plays the role of Queen Amara of the Seven Seas. Evelyn Rubio, also from Houston, plays the role of Aria, the music teacher at the School of Mermaidology and Neptunism. She plays a nasty saxophone and is currently working with Ms. Swick on our second original song to be recorded in the studio this fall. Joy Tuck, who lives in Hawaii, reprized the role of Joy from our original proof of concept Wish Upon A Starfish. Additional supporting cast from New England include Mary Herbert, Alex Bensley, Rhys Cote, Gavin Walker, Chloe Trejo, Jayla Onwuakor and Lexi, our Grand Champion Doberman, played Hope’s faithful companion, also in her mermaid tail.

Marilyn says, “The original concept of Wish Upon A Starfish was captured as proof of concept five years ago in Texas with a diverse cast. This storyline grew into a series that brought more diversity to the cast and eventually became Ocean Child. We believe it’s time for a mystical mermaid story that spans generations and encompasses all genders, ethnicities, abilities and ages. Who doesn’t love a great mermaid story?

“Ocean Child” will begin its journey as part of the Academy Award Qualifying Film Festival Circuit in 2023, with the culmination of this mystical series being chosen by one of the networks. Please follow our journey on our IMDB and FB pages.
