Upstream Color sequence

I have a key supporting role in Shane Carruth's festival hit (Sundance, Berlinale, SXSW, Viennale, New Directors/New Films, IFC Center release) opposite Carolyn King and Andrew Sensenig as part of "one of the best ensembles of the year" (Pop Matters).

This is my entire sequence in the film.  I appear in a tangential storyline as a grieving widower obsessing over he and his wife's final moments together.

       
     
SOME BEASTS - Clip

A brief sequence from Cameron Bruce Nelson's feature debut, SOME BEASTS. I play the lead role of a farmhand in a deep existential crisis over three seasons.  I prepared for this role by laboring on the farms in Virginia for a couple of weeks prior.  For my work in the film, I received the Independent Visions Special Jury Prize for Outstanding Performance at the 2016 Sarasota Film Festival. 

The film was part of the 2014 IFP Narrative Labs, US IN PROGRESS in Wroclaw, Poland (as part of the 2013 American Film Festival), and also a recipient of the 2013 Austin Film Society post production grant.  It has won awards at the likes of Indie Memphis, Virginia FF, and the Dallas International FF.

Press on my performance:

 "one of his best performances to date" (HAMMER TO NAIL)

"a strong, engaging central lead performance" (MADISON FILM FORUM) 

"a subtle, quiet miracle...a career-making performance that is a thing of beauty...Mosley makes physical choices that leap off the screen at you" (TRUTH ON CINEMA)

"an award worthy performance" (MUNGLE ON MOVIES)

"a subtle showcase of expressions and body language with exhales of breath becoming his main delivery mode of emotion and sentiment, expressed through the strained inability to develop and deliver the words necessary; the more emotional segments of his portrayal consist of lines that remain incomplete and malformed like a mass of knotted tendrils ensnared deep within his chest; a simple, exacerbated breath communicating all you need to know, effectively filling the silences of Nelson’s screenplay and bolstering the utterances that see the light of day" (FILM PULSE)

A brief showcase of clips from Eric Steele's CORK'S CATTLEBARON ("underplays perfectly" -Hammer To Nail), Jon Jost's THEY HAD IT COMING ("shines with a fantastic performance"-Chicago Filmmakers' Showcase; "frequently hypnotic...delivered as though performing a piece of music"-CineFile), Andy Lohrenz's SUBURBANITE ("portrayed exceptionally well by Mosley, who steals his scenes, a young version of Christian Bale"- Rogue Cinema), Dylan Pasture's SATISFACTION, John W. Yost's WHITE CREEK, Scott Honea's PANHANDLE JIM, and lastly, Justin D. Hilliard's THE OTHER SIDE OF PARADISE, for which he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 2009 AOF Festival in L.A. for his portrayal of a misfit ex-con, deemed "a potent dose of sexual chutzpah" (Variety), "an appealing performance with intriguing elements of depth" (The Hollywood Reporter), and that he "induces simultaneous states of humor, menace, intrigue, and sexual bravado" (Smells Like Screen Spirit).

Frank is represented in Texas by Linda McAlister Talent (Dallas) and The Atherton Group (Austin).
