1. Amanda Fuller, Chloë Crampton & Alberta Mayne in “The Brittany Murphy Story”

 alt=  alt=

- It takes an idol to play an idol and Amanda Fuller who is coveted as an indie/television starlet plays Brittany Murphy, one of the shining talents who just like Marilyn Monroe died young. While the biopic has raised controversy, Amanda should be lauded for her multi-layered, emotionally tinged interpretation of a Bright Star gone too soon.
– Catch the lovable British actress Chloë Crampton as Morgan, the best friend of Brittany whom she brought on set of the comedy smash “Clueless” which also starred Alicia Silverstone.
– Look out for Canadian actress Alberta Mayne in a supporting role and whom we have come to know from her work on TV as genuinely eye-catching.

2. Lucy Owen in “Kelly & Cal”


- Arrestingly beautiful, Lucy Owen is set to captivate in a big way thanks to her amusing and entertaining performance in “Kelly and Cal”.
– She plays Julie the judgmental sister-in-law of new mother Kelly (Juliette Lewis) and the two are at loggerheads throughout this not so typical romantic comedy.
– This will go a long way in affirming her status as a breakout indie star as will her memorable turn as a single mother caught in a love triangle opposite Josh Lucas in SXSW fav “The Mend”.

3. Ginifer King in “Haunted Hathaways”


- I was often wondering why Ginifer was consistently ranking as a popular actress on this blog and then I discovered she’s the star of Nickelodean hit “Haunted Hathways”.
– She plays Michelle Hathaway, the kind single mother of 2 cute daughters who move into a new home and unexpectedly encounter ghosts with a sense of humor. Cue the laughter!
– Ginifer is also well known for her powerful vocals and Big Band Cabaret routines that’s often brimming with sensuality making her a born entertainer.

Indy Film Fest 2014 Spotlight: Indie Princess Ashley Pishock


It’s time to admire Ashley Pishock, a talented lady with the enchanting touch both on and off the screen. We do love our women of independent cinema as they never fail to bring us refreshing vignettes of life that can be deeply personal such as the one in the romantic comedy “Skook”. With the screenings happening on Saturday, July 19th @ 5:15PM and Monday, July 21st @ 5:00PM at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, audiences will be treated to the vulnerable performance by the amazing Ashley with some comparing her to a young Parker Posey. Not only is she the star of “Skook”, Ashley created this engaging story that’s destined to open our eyes. Essentially it’s a tale of forgiveness as her character Amy, a fashion student returns home and discovers a fresh perspective on things while returning to the place where she was once tormented. Can we really be forgiving to the ones who hurt us most?


“Skook” has been a passion project for Ashley and the countless hours she has put in to craft her first feature length film speaks of her dedication. Her creative streak has been inculcated from a tender age and her clever yet soulful screenwriting resonates. Certainly “Skook” is itself an interesting enigma and it’s actually an affectionate term locals give to the region of Schuylkill County as well as its residents. All bodes well for Ashley who is a blossoming film-maker/actress with the potential to be embraced ardently by you and me.
