Upon the film's completion and successful screening at the Action On Film Festival in CA, Clayton and Producer, Stacie Gentzler were invited on to the Maryland-centric program to discuss their working on this Baltimore-based independent feature film.
"...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

"....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
"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 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." -
