- (1888PressRelease) February 25, 2012 - Popular actor Robert Sciglimpaglia (http://www.robpaglia.com/index.html ), is currently playing the starring role of Warren Gibbs in the new melodramatic movie titled Home /Sick. Warren Gibbs, a writer, is suffering from a severe case of agoraphobia, and must finish his final novel to save his house from foreclosure before he is forced back out into the world. Due to his anxiety disorder he has not stepped a foot out of his home in seven years. The powerful movie, directed by Danny Pytell, is currently a part of the SeekFlik.com competition, which is an online film competition that is searching for the next great filmmaker with prizes ranging from $2,500 up to an Overall Winner's Prize of $20,000. All winners will be showcased to major talent agents through David Greenblatt, a well-known manager who has partnered with SeekFlik. Home/Sick has just made it to the third, and final round, due to the many recent popular votes it has received, and is currently in the top 10 of 375 entries. Robert Sciglimpaglia explains what the Home/Sick short film entry focuses on:
"This is an extremely strong short film that focuses on a disorder that effects a larger percentage of the US population than people realize." States Actor Robert Sciglimpaglia. " The hope is that the film will strike a cord with audiences, peak awareness and raise the necessary votes for Home/Sick to win the Seekflik competition. It is a quality short film and truly deserves the recognition."
Robert Sciglimpaglia was also the topic of well earned news surrounding the superbowl and scored a major touchdown with the role of the dad within Chevy's hilarious Happy Grad Superbowl commercial. The commercial was a tremendous success and originally previewed during the NFC Championship Game, and is the creation of 26-year-old Long Island film maker Zachary Borst. Out of 200 worldwide commercial submissions "The Happy Grad" was chosen as the winner of the Chevrolet Route 66 video submission contest. The lively and hilarious piece will now air during the 46th Super Bowl between the Giants and Patriots. Chevy chose the commercial as it contained all the important elements the company was looking for: light-heartedness and a commitment to the Chevrolet name. In June of 2011, Robert Sciglimpaglia did an off-Broadway play with Jamie Kehoane, who recommended him for the slot of the father and now plays his wife in the new popular ad.
