Action on Film Festival 2016 Spotlight: Indie Darling Amy Wade


It’s a boon to be able to follow the work of multi-talented women and at AOF 2016, Amy Wade is set to rouse us all with her many gifts. She’s the creative force of “Condo Hell”, a horror flick that has guests at a condo unknowingly trespassing the hunting ground of a serial killer in a small town east of Boston, Massachusetts. Lauded as one of the upcoming feminine voices of indie horror, her passion to have audiences immersed in all things horror, especially after watching “Condo Hell” is a mark of her genuine dedication to the art of film-making. Amy also decided to opted to forgo any tongue-in-cheek elements, instead delving into the disturbing bowels of chilling terror. “Condo Hell” is now sparkling on the festival circuit and we can’t wait to soak in the scares! Amy has also been nominated for the award of Best Female Filmmaker–Feature at AOF and she’s merited for even more awards in the months ahead.

We will also love the fact that women are at the core of her thrilling creation and this applies to Amy’s crew too. Shed did experienc some of the most stressing tribulations during the long shoot and still managed to complete the film. Amy is seriously made of stern stuff and should be regarded as a role model for any aspiring film-maker. Even those who are not from the industry will admire her zeal. Do indulge in the stories of the savvy Amy Wade and watch her shine in true indie spirit.

Sizzling Cutie: Cleo Handler


It’s gratifying to be fixated on the women of television especially when pretty faces such as the luminous Cleo Handler pops up on the small screen. Catch the beguiling Cleo in the crime drama “Public Morals” set in the 1960s where fedora-sporting, wise-cracking cops are trying to rid New York of its vices. In one of the episodes, her character has been called cute and gorgeous in the same breadth as well as breaking out into an endearing dance routine. Now how can we not love her after that and Cleo is luscious personified with her fashionable 60s threads and charismatic free-spirit. You’ll probably be hooked on her seductively husky voice too! Thanks to Cleo our fascination with all things retro is proliferating.

Here’s Cleo giving us a glimpse of her recurring role in “Public Morals” as well as her upcoming features:

The role is “Barbara,” and I play Deirdre (Lyndon Smith)’s roommate and best friend. She’s a single, independent, college grad from Connecticut, unlike many of the characters on the show, so she provides an interesting contrast / outside perspective on their world. At first, she may seem a bit judgmental but I think she’s really just a smart, ambitious girl who is looking out for her best friend. (She is in episodes 2,4,6,9,&10 if you wanna check them out by the way )
some other projects of mine include “young like us,” a musical webseries I created / starred in, which you can find online at, as well as a bunch of other things I’m currently writing…at the moment, I’m acting in a play called “Blue Surge” in NY, playing a character called Beth!

On her way to be a budding star, Cleo also happens to be a writer and singer. We would love to see her as a leading lady in a future TV show where she can enchant us with her full spectrum of feminine wiles onscreen.
