It is the only platform where I get to express my authentic self, states Lewis. I am excited to finally release this web-series!" 
In addition to bringing a script to life, Lewis is also hip-hop mogul Sir Jeffreey 5d. Often compared to early artists as well as classics such as: Jimmy Hendrix, Bob Marley, Kid Cudi, and The Weeknd, Sir Jeffreey 5d has a futuristic sound intertwined with a vintage soul.

Larry Ragland Jr:
Created from the classics and with an in-depth love for all art forms is Larry D. Ragland Jr. Originally from Idaho, Ragland has a keen eye for art, motivation, and inspiration.
"I would say that was the seed that got planted into me and from there I started to watch a lot more movies," states Ragland. "It wasn’t always the movies that interested me, but the special features of them that made them come into existence. That seed is what lead me here."
Due to his attention to detail and kind nature, Ragland adds color to all art forms. His admiration and ability to mold himself against the grain in order to paint a picturesque setting for his viewers is flawless.

Noel VanBrocklin:
Hailing from Arizona, lead actress in Nostaglia, Noel VanBrocklin pulls out all the stops and proves she is indeed a force to be recoknowed with. Giving female actors a stronger voice, Noel is so intriguing and complex she will have everyone at her mercy.
"I feel like Nostalgia has the potential to accurately portray the struggles of artists who risk it all to follow their dream, (and) has the possibility of having the audience live through their journeys," states VanBrocklin. "I breathe life into a character through my craft, I give it a face, and I make her real. I don't choose to act, I'm a slave to it. I can't do anything else."
Making the big move to Los Angeles a few months ago, VanBrocklin has had her share of student films, shorts, and theatre performances, before landing the lead role in Nostaglia.
Sharon Jordan:
Sincere, professional, and kind is the mantra of Sharon Jordan. Originally from Southern California, Jordan brings the 'peace' to life on stage through her portrayal of Valerie Steggae in Nostaglia. 
Inspired by Meryl Streep, Jordan is no stranger to being on camera as many may recognize her from her role on Disney Channels' "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." However, in Nostalgia Jordan opens up another side to her acting. 
Be sure to stay tuned to see just how Jordan 'brings the peace'.

Alana Berthiaume:
Every production needs an alter ego and her name is Kayla! Played by Alana Berthiaume, Kayla is a little bit crazy and outside of the norm for this outgoing, quirky, and bubbly spirit
Motivated by the likes of Amy Schumer, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Bell, Berthiaume is a free-spirit who knows exactly who she is and what she wants and will go to any length to obtain it.
Don't let her outgoing personality fool you!
