LA Shorts Fest 2013 Spotlight: Indie Princess Jennifer Fontaine

 alt=  alt=

One could say JENNIFER FONTAINE is a beguiling mix of striking beauty akin to someone like Julianna Margulies and the playful essence of Parker Posey. Yet she has a classic look about her (red carpet pics of her affirm this) and it’s fitting that she’s cast in the noirish thriller “The Company”. Take a look at “The Company” Trailer which is actually rendered in black and white. While it doesn’t reveal much (means you have to watch it at the screening on Sep 8), the short film’s interesting premise of an organization that promises new identities for desperate people should be a thrill. Jennifer plays Laura who works for The Company and who gets in the way of their top salesman seeking newer pastures.

If she’s already piqued your interest, visit the JENNIFER FONTAINE OFFICIAL SITE to read up on this vivacious actress. Here’s where I interject with a famous quote: “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”. Having seen her gallery, JENNIFER is gorgeous in monochrome as she is in color. There was a famous actress by the name of Joan Fontaine in the 1930s who became Hollywood royalty but it’s great to see JENNIFER FONTAINE carving her own path to success. Her penchant for deviating from mainstream productions shows the passion for her craft and that’s a trait we all commend.

Sizzling Cutie: Ava Bogle

It’s great to be an aficionado of elegant women and AVA BOGLE has a cultivated attractiveness that’s so magnetic. I’m always looking out for actresses who are Classic Beauties and AVA’s captivating features coupled with her fair skin should make her an endearing candidate. It’s about projecting a likable sophistication and having seen AVA on some of the opening nights of her films, she’s a natural dazzler. As a co-writer/producer, her short film “Piano Fingers” won the Grand Jury Prize at several prestigious festivals thanks to the heartbreaking and moving tale of love that never fades. She’s a crafter of beautiful details on and off screen, notably lauded as being ever so graceful on the theatre scene. You may have seen her in “The Paperboy” where she rubbed shoulders with megastars Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron and John Cusack, boding well for her fledgling career.

It’s also great to see AVA starring alongside Sarah Butler (who you will know was the very first actress ever featured on this blog) and indie starlet Brit Marling whom I admire greatly. Ava was in “The Philly Kid” with Sarah while in the upcoming action drama “The East”, she’ll be on the big screen with Miss Marling as well as Ellen Page…Sweet! The AVA BOGLE OFFICIAL SITE is your gateway to learn more about her projects past, present and future. She’s a genuine honey with praiseworthy multiple talents and one of the faces of note in 2013.
