BURBANK, CA: Award winning comedian and actor Allen Rueckert has agreed to join the cast of the feature documentary “The Amazing Akanas.” Allen will add a funny yet warm comedic touch to the overall project. The story is essentially very serious about a family of ten, one as young as five, who travel the country in a motor home competing in and often winning inline speed skating competitions from coast to coast. Their ultimate goal is to get the sport they love into the Olympic Games. It is a powerful story of deep personal sacrifice and monumental achievement under often severe conditions.
Allen Rueckert’s role has not yet been fully defined but he will add a touch of warm humor to this overwhelmingly amazing story. The Akana family and Q Films enthusiastically welcome Allen Rueckert to the project. SEE: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2791767/?ref_=tt_cl_t3.
Q Films projects general release of the film in the first quarter of 2014. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3391836/?ref_=nm_flmg_slf_1. While much of the principal photography has been completed there are a few finishing touches that remain before the film’s release is possible. To get this film completed by its intended release date Q Films has initiated a very modest crowd funding campaign at www.gofundme.com/amazingakana.
