Dances With Films 2014 Spotlight: Indie Princess Rose Marziale

 alt=  alt=

Expressively beautiful, Rose Marziale is a multifaceted actress whom many will be embracing with lots of fondness. Sometimes dreams do come true and her passion project “It Remains” is premiering at Dances With Films with an after-party to follow. Rose has already given me inspiration to chase my own dreams and so should you! In a gorgeous red number, Rose is the belle of the red carpet at “Dances With Films” as seen from the event photos coming out.

Here’s Rose describing her uniquely enchanting part in “It Remains”:

‘So my role in “It Remains” is a pretty unique story. I actually created, co-produced, and co-wrote it along with starring in it. Our goal was to create a universal love story that everyone can relate to, so my character is named “You” and the other character is named “Me.” It’s a short film that uses a lot of dance and music to tell the story.’

From the trailer, one can already see how palpably compelling this feature is, from the chemistry between the 2 leads and their storytelling prowess. Told without words, “It Remains” uses the best of music and dance to portray the addiction to love.

On her upcoming projects, she is regularly performing at various indie improv shows with her team Anchorbaby! Rose is also writing as well as starring in an untitled live sketch comedy show and comedy pilot. Thanks to her, I’ve discovered she’s been in acting class with Amanda Fuller of “Last Man Standing” fame and since Amanda is one of my favorite actresses, by proxy Rose will become one too. Adoring looks are set to descend upon the talented Miss Rose and she will certainly blossom in the days ahead.

SoHo Film Festival Spotlight 2014: Rising Starlet Rachel McKeon

 alt=  alt=

It’s easy to take a liking to the beguiling Rachel McKeon especially since her performances have been anointed with praises such as stellar and wunderkind. Rachel is making her leading debut in a feature film playing the unruly and fiercely individualistic Irene in “Homemakers”, an independent film destined to make a splash at festivals in 2014. Rachel comes across as a young Hilary Swank with shades of Kate Mara and seamlessly fluxes into unique, unforgettable characters that radiate her trademark complexity, creativity, and emotional bravery. An instinctive performer, Rachel reacts to the ebb and flow of a story which will pleasantly surprise many a viewer. Check our the Q & A session segment (above) where she talks about her fascinating character Irene who is audaciously brash, the opposite of Rachel’s more reserved personality in real life.

She also starred as the hopeful and idealistic Annie in a short film opposite Academy Award-nominee Cathy Moriarty called “The Story of Milo and Annie”, which is having a great festival run including one at this year’s SoHo Film Fest. In this atypical romance, Rachel casts a spell on us as Annie who tries to accomplish the seemingly impossible by making the mute Milo open up to her. Will there be a happy ending for this unconventional couple?


In Rachel’s own words, she feels that “Acting is a way for me to better understand my life, I think. It’s the way that I choose to cope with the heaviness of all the possibilities of a lifetime in this world”. How enlightening to hear Rachel contends how acting has become the essential fabric in her life as should be the passions that we ourselves may aspire to relish. If there’s an indie darling to dote on in 2014 and beyond, make Rachel your lovable choice.
