DAM SHORT FILM FEST - STRANGERS
In February of 2022, I joined Writer/Directors Nate Nie and Stefani Zabner for a Zoom Q&A to discuss their films with the guidance from The DAM Short Film Festival's moderator Anita Lanier.
This was a delightful conversation as it was through The DAM Short Film Festival that Nate and I had met and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him on Strangers as it ultimately reunited us with the festival.
It also allotted us the chance to learn more about Stefani and her film "On The Rocks"!
HUMANS IN MY PHONE
When I moved to NYC the first opportunity I had to get on-stage was as part of the cast in a play by Gregor Collins adapting his own novel titled "The Accidental Caregiver". Since then, we've stayed in touch and when he learned I was now living in LA, came out to visit and asked if I would be a guest on his ongoing video series "Humans In My Phone".
Though this video was recorded pre-pandemic, I find it one that offers a refreshing perspective even now. Maybe you will feel the same. In any case, check out the links below to learn about more humans in Gregor's phone.
REDDY RECORDS with Ciara Renée
Reddy Records was a passion project written by and starring Ciara Renee (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Broadway's Big Fish, and Frozen). The film's principal photography was completed in 2019, and though it has yet to be officially released, I couldn't be happier to have claimed my first Co-Producer credit by simply saying "Yes" when a friend reached out.
I hope you enjoy viewing this interview/conversation we recorded while during the crowdfunding campaign for Reddy Records!

DEL WESTON ON FILM
In the Summer of 2013, I was awarded the Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film at the Action On Film Festival. This marks my second Best Actor Award from AOF, the first being received for my work in the feature film Heaven Burns in 2010. The above video is an interview with the festival's founder Del Weston
Upon the film's completion and successful screening at the Action On Film Festival in CA, Producer, Stacie Gentzler and I were invited on to the Maryland-centric program to discuss their working on this Baltimore-based independent feature film.
"Clayton Stocker Myers is the highlight as Marty, who is conflicted over his loyalty to his brother and his concern about the danger of the plan. Myers brings depth to the role and shows range as the pair take things too far."
- Patrick Foley - UK FILM REVIEW
"....razor sharp acting from the four main actors, along with Clayton Stocker Myers in a brief but spot-on appearance as Lenny Bruce’s ghost."
- Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival
"...He (Clayton) showed up on set having done a ton of research on Lenny Bruce, and had already crafted a character with layers
...my job really became capturing what ended up a clinic in scene work by two really good actors firing on all cylinders."
- Lonnie Martin
(writer/director of The Last of the Manson Girls)
"Myers very deftly navigates Ryan's character, presenting a young man who's honestly desperate to leave anything that would seem jaded in his life behind for pursuit of his more legitimate goals..." - Mindenki (Sing) of OneFilmFan.com <-- Full Review of Heaven Burns
"From the leading roles straight through to the supporting, the acting of this movie surpassed a good lot of "A list" films I've seen recently." - JT of IndyRed.com <-- Full Review of Heaven Burns
"Clayton Myers’ Bobby – is also the product of brilliant choices, flawlessly executed" - Tim Treanor of the DC Theatre Scene reviewing Maryland Ensemble Theatre's production of David Mamet's American Buffalo

“…An incredibly natural, bright, captivating, and kind actor” “a pleasure to work with” “…Can trust completely to make wonderful choices when given freedom.”

"Clayton is a very introspective guy by nature, and that reflects in his work. Any good actor does his amount of research, but Clayton goes above and beyond and takes his roles to heart." -
