Bishop, who resides in Cape Coral, said that the shoot took place in Naples, Marco Island and Sanibel Island. In addition to having an acting role as a scripted interviewer in the incentive video that was shot, Bishop also filled the shoes of production coordinator.

Since this actress was both cast and crew, it took a lot of determination and talent. Bishop pulled both off quite well!

Wearing more than one hat, for many, was not uncommon on set for shooting this video. The video's purpose is for the upcoming feature film "The 4th Letter of Ponce de Leon," in which it will be a part of a fund raising campaign on Indiegogo. Soon after, a concept trailer will be created as well.


"The 4th Letter" is written and produced by Richard Watts. The director of photography is Ernesto Lasso de la Vega, production design is Rebecca Hollifield and media director is Erik Krefeld, among others.

In addition, there was makeup, hair and wardrobe - Jasmine Harvey, sound - Eddie, Charlie, locations that opened their doors to them, and numerous others.

Geri Muck was responsible for most of the talent. Muck owns and operates Protocol Models on the Gulf.

This is not the only gig Bishop has been a part of. She had the role of Emma Hurring in the film "Casting" (2014), was Peggy Olsen in 'Madd Men' with the Mystery Theatre Troupe, was the lead as a business woman for a VendScreen Product promo and was featured as a mother in a Sunshine Ace commercial.

Margaret Bishop had this to say about shooting "The 4th Letter" incentive video.

"Yes, I'd like to say that I am truly fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work alongside Richard E. Watts as both an actress ('interviewer') and production coordinator on this project. Both the film itself, but especially his mentoring, afforded me the experiences I can take with me in this industry and build myself as an asset to others I may work with in the future... and that is invaluable."


Enjoy "4th Letter" video clip. This film project continues into the year. NewsBlaze hopes to be invited on set again, so it can bring its readers more behind the scenes scoop!
