Local talent stars in new indie film

It's a beautiful thing when local talent and local film mix.

Bradenton resident Danielle White, 18, will be featured in an upcoming film titled "Beautiful Noise," which is currently in pre-production.

The local indie film is a music drama that has White starring as Dez, a free-spirited singer who is on a mission to find Noah (Jay White), an aging 1960s pop/rock star down on his luck. She wants to get his permission to re-record his "lost album."

Working together on the project, the pair fall in love. Their unexpected romance hits various bumps and surprises as it blooms.

The film also has more than 20 original songs with a track from singer Joni Mitchell.

This isn't White's first and only gig. She's been featured on the TV talent show "American Juniors" as well as "An American Idol Christmas," Entertainment Tonight" and "Extra."

She's joined by a talented cast and crew that span from Hollywood to the Suncoast, said Steve Tatone of the Sarasota-based Midnight Pass Productions.

"Their singing and acting skills are phenomenal," he said.

No date has been set for a release. Filming begins this summer in Bradenton, Sarasota and Myakka, Tatone said.

A few distributors have already expressed interest in the film, which is being financed by local investors, Tatone said. Once filming is complete, his production company will submit "Beautiful Noise" to various film festivals - including the mother of all film festivals. That's right: Sundance.
