The new Film from Cappricielli Productions "The Legend of Lake Ronkonkoma: The Lady Of The Lake" is currently wrapping up production in and around Yaphank and Lake Ronkonkoma, NY - the film's namesake city.

The cast includes Seth Gilliam (The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf), Nia Sioux, (Dance Moms, Runnin From My Roots), Emery Kelly (Alexa and Katie, Big Shot), Larry Saperstein (High School Musical: the Musical: The Series), Del Zamora (True Blood) and Steven Thomas Capp (Fat Camp, Reach, How I Met Your Mother) with Sera-Lys McArthur (Outlander), Julie Dove, Clio Contogenis, Veronica Kelly, sisters Raffaela Capp and Natasha Capp (Four Cousins and a Christmas), Chris Roach (Kevin Can Wait), Tori London (The Waitress) rounding out the cast; and introducing Taylor Red Fox as Tahoma.

The intriguing psychological thriller tells the story of Jamie (Nia Sioux), a fresh out of high school graduate who wishes to enjoy her last summer home and her 18th birthday at the Lake with her friends. Overshadowed by THE ONE year anniversary of her brother's drowning, her estranged relationship with her father (Seth Gilliam), her mother's mental health issues (Sera-Lys Mcarthur), and unexplained supernatural occurrences that haunt the once happy Schultz family. Jamie certainly will not get the summer she was hoping for, or expecting. Dare to take a dip?

"As a filmmaker, I've always wanted to share my experiences growing up on Lake Ronkonkoma and in line with my interest in identity formation and personal experience with grief's effect on the family; I wrote a psychological thriller. The main character, Jamie Schultz, happens to have lineage that is traceable to the original people of the Lake. I combined the supernatural component with a family suffering from a tragic loss while being haunted by this so-called "Legend", said Maria Capp, writer, director, and producer of the film.
