The Women Who Sizzle @ Hollyshorts Film Fest 2014 – Part 2


1. Kelly Pantaleoni in “Artful Gambit”


- Don’t miss her alluring performance as the femme fatale Catherine who admits to killing her husband in “Artful Gambit”, the rather sordidly twisted tale.
– From Cannes to Hollywood, Kelly is wowing us and this Aussie Vixen has a bright future ahead as well as being one of the sexist women in this industry.
– Already a spokesmodel for “Guess”, she’s set to sizzle the world and we as fans won’t be able to stop giving her the utmost affection.

2. Corsica Wilson in “North Bay”


- By far one of the cutest actresses to beguile the screen, Corsica has the features you would find yourself falling for in no time.
– She is one of the stars of the surrealistic time-travel film “North Bay” where obsession may just prove to be detrimental.
– Catch her in the indie film “The Lengths” and be mesmerized by her turn as a woman looking for love in the most unexpected of times.

3. Nicole Wyland in “Capstone’s Oak”


- Nicole stars in “Capstone’s Oak” where greed overcomes human decency when a scheme to generate money involves the dead.
– This endearing redhead has been in her fair share of horror movies and her upcoming project “13 Girls” could just be a top pick since it involves Catholic schoolgirls entwined in a demonic plot!
– She has parodies Lady Gaga on youtube with aplomb which means more reasons to watch Nicole at her comedic best.

4. Summer Crockett Moore in “Trust Me I’m A Lifeguard”


- Call her the woman with the most ravishing of smiles and Summer truly has the bubbly character to win hearts with ease.
– Impressive turns as a druggie in “Junction” and as a saucy flirt in “Trust Me I’m A Lifeguard” shows her capability to portray darker as well as lighter characters.
– Already an award-winning actress/producer, the sky’s the limit for Summer and she’s destined to become even hotter!

5. Renee Dorian in “Sad Motivator”


- Enigmatic and perky are words of praise that comes to mind when describing the comely Renee Dorian who is a lady to adore.
– Even though she’s one of the nicest actresses around, Renee does play a heartbreaker in the humorous web series “Sad Motivator”.
– Just discovered, she once played Cersei Lannister in a comedy sketch called “Beer Of Thrones”. Renee does have the potential to be the queen of indie films…:)

6. Ashlynn Yennie in “Market Hours”


- Whether she’s a blonde or a brunette, Ashlynn never fails to be immaculately gorgeous and recently she’s been quite a sizzler on the red carpet too.
– It’s no surprise she’s playing a starlet in the fast-paced comedy “Market Hours” where sometimes interesting encounters are there to change your life forever.
– With several of her features on the festival circuit this year, she’s taking the indie world by storm having already been lauded as a cult actress.

Hollyshorts Film Festival 2014 Spotlight: Aussie Vixen Lauren Orrell

 alt=  alt=

It’s effortless to be hooked on Australian actresses and upcoming starlet Lauren Orrell is thoroughly engaging with her distinctive magnetism at the fore. Her penchant for taking on emotive women with intriguing shades does set her apart and offers viewers a look at the level of enchantment she can bring forth. Lauren is quickly becoming the face who dares to be different as her profile reveals she is known for rejecting work that is ‘pretty’ in favor of more visceral fare. Just like the one she essays in the sci-fi short “The Pale Moonlight” set in a dystopian future rife with disease which screens at Hollyshorts on Aug 17.

Here’s Lauren giving us a teaser of her role and her experiences as a woman with a valiant heart in spite of her circumstances:

“I play “Autumn” in The Pale Moonlight. She’s a young woman, in the care of her grandparents, who, until this particular night, has been sheltered from the realities of the family business (underground pharmacy, with a side of prostitution). Like most of the people in the world, she lives with a deadly virus, that has only one known cure, and after government lobbying to shut down the pharmaceutical industry, a cure that is in scarce supply. Whilst, I think she’s accustomed to the nature of her mortality, her trust in her family is questioned, when her Grandfather decides she’s old enough to make a buck from the oldest profession. The level of betrayal deepens when she realises his lies have put her life at even greater jeopardy. Autumn was a amazing to play, vulnerable, but a fighter. She sees fear and just goes for it anyway. It really helped that Tin, our director had such a clear vision and created a safe environment to go to some pretty scary places. Matt Boesenberg and Peter McAllum are the kind of actors that give you things that really make you step up to the plate as an actor, the things I was able to achieve in this film are because they are strong and generous performers, and in Peter’s case, absolutely terrifying when he needs to be.”

Lauren is also shining in the Australian web series “Starting From… Now” where she’s part of a love quadrangle between four lesbians with complicated personalities. Lauren excels in drawing out the multi textured persona of her character Kristen who suffers the ultimate betrayal by her best friend Steph Fraser (Sarah de Possese). With Season 3 heading our way, the juicy tales are going to satiate lovers of great romantic drama. Likewise, Lauren is steadily becoming a beguiling figure to be admired.
