February 4 @ 7pm
Come join us for a live script reading of CA$HVILLE performed by members of the Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance and directed by screenwriter and filmmaker Clay Riley Hassler.
CA$HVILLE, the community source for community loans and money transfers, begins to buckle under the weight of change as the community and its residents, old and new, become increasingly more hostile and violent towards one another.
Clay Riley Hassler is an award-winning writer, director, and producer of fiction and non-fiction feature films, music videos, and branded content. Clay was named a “Director To Watch” by Way Too Indie following the release of his debut feature film, HOMELESS, which was shot and produced in Winston-Salem, NC, and the surrounding community. The film was lauded by critics and movie-goers alike with The Hollywood Reporter writing that the film was “incisive and sensitive… astounding.” HOMELESS was acquired for distribution in 2017 and is now available on Amazon and Flix Premiere.
Aside from feature work, Clay loves to collaborate with labels, artists, and brands. His resume includes media and film campaigns for both Fortune 500 companies and local and national non-profits. Clay’s work has been written about and featured in The Wrap, Variety, RollingStone, IndieWIRE, Screen International, Christianity Today, The Fader, Cowboys & Indians, and Nashville Scene.
Clay is a graduate of The Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts where he earned his M.F.A. in writing and directing. He and his wife (and fellow producer), Tif, divide their time between their home in Nashville, TN, and NYC where they lead a creative collective and film content studio, Wet Paint.
