IMTA congratulates Beau Nelson and The Artist!

Congratulations to IMTA alum Beau Nelson for being part of The Artist. According to the L.A. Times, "The Artist," the black-and-white silent film about Hollywood’s rocky transition to the “talkies,” took the biggest honors at the 84th Academy Awards on Sunday night, including best picture, director and lead actor."

In the film, Beau plays Peppy's Boyfriend. He has two scenes with Peppy (Berenice Bejo) in the movie theater as her date. Beau said,"One of the scenes is currently in the cut that made theaters and the other is on the DVD I received as a screener from SAG. It was absolutely the most wonderful experience to be on set for such a brilliant film. Berenice is amazing to work with; extremely sweet and amazingly talented. The director, Michel Hazanavicious was outstanding to work with. He knew exactly what he wanted and it was the most smooth filming experience I've had to date. Truly an amazing experience and so thankful to have had the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful experience."

Beau competed at the New York 2008 IMTA and is now living in Los Angeles. In his first two years in L.A after IMTA, he appeared in over 20 films. Some of his highlights include Zombie Drugs (starring-18 inquires at AFM), Q for Death (co-star with Jeremy London), Madoff: Made off with America (Supporting Tom Sizemore/Micheal Madson), Bring Me The Head of Lance Henrikson (Principal with Lance Henrikson/Tim Thomerson), Ginger (Jason London) and The Adventures of Roman & Jorge, a Christian 30-minute episodic that aired for a brief time.
