Interview: Wendy Rose (Actress, Model, Singer, Poet) (February 2016)

Wendy Rose - Actress, Writer, Poet and Assistant Director!
Miss Wendy Rose is a busy woman in Horror and Film on the Indie Film scene. She is an actess, model, singer and writer. Her credits include Emma Dark's Seize the Night and holds issues close to her heart and you will read in this Interview with the lovely lady. Please check out her Facebook - HERE.

What was your role on Seize the Night?
I was set production assistant.

What else can you tell us about your filming projects and plans?
I was 1st AD and also played a character called DC Beth Miller. AJ Sigh is finishing the prep work on a project that I will most probably be crewing. I have a couple of acting projects in the pipeline, just waiting for confirmation on those.

Tell me about your Writing, Poetry and Singing talents?
I've recently discovered journaling, it's a fantastic tool for self awareness, and taking responsibility of your life and what you want to achieve. From this I have been much more creative, writing stories and poetry. I'm planning on making mini films to accompany the poetry. In my early 20s I was going through classical vocal training. Unfortunately I completely stopped singing about 7-8 years ago, but I have recently joined a local rock choir to ease myself back into it.

On personal note, you are recovering from ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? What has helped you through this condition?
Because I had it for 10 years as a child, I knew what was happening right away this time around, and had an idea of how to deal with it. What helped me personally was to reduce stress on both my body and mind. Change eating habits, I gave up sugar and processed foods, anything that wasn't good for the body. As about 80% of your immune system is in the gut, it seemed to make sense.

For me, learning about filming,and opening up creatively kind of gave me a break from my reality by shifting my focus. Also just being around creative positive people gave me so much support. I wouldn't say I am back to how I was before I was sick. I still have moments when I feel exhausted, or can't climb stairs etc. This is of little worry when I look at how far I have come.
I'm grateful to have a good quality of life back.

Any advice for other ME sufferers out there?
Accept where you are, be kind and gentle to yourself, and pace yourself. If you need a sulk day, then allow yourself to have one, then get up and fight the next day. Fill yourself with knowledge, learn about nutrition, what the immune and nervous systems actually do, meditation etc; anything, you will feel you have some control back. Reach out to other sufferers and groups, CFS Health on Facebook really got me through some tough times. Take each moment, each breath and each day at a time, it is those little things that will get you through. You can get through it.

Interview: Michael Haberfelner ([re]SearchMyTrash) (Screenwriter) (July 2017)

I got to question Screenwriter and owner of www.searchmytrash.com in Michael Haberfelner. He is currently going to be working with USA Actress, Debra Lamb. He also collaborates with actress Eirian Cohen and actor Laurence Harvey. His screen writer credits include,  A Killer Conversation (2015) and Talk of the Dead (2017).
Tell me about any upcoming Projects you are working on?
Well, the next one is the big one, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES, the first feature film I’m going to produce. We start shooting in a little over a week, so all buzzing with excitement and knee-deep in preparations ;) The story is basically a woman welcoming her ex into her house, totally oblivious to the fact that he’s actually a zombie, and her husband, who has killed that very same ex in the first place, is understandably less than thrilled. Eirian Cohen stars as the woman, with Rudy Barrow being her husband, Rami Hilmi the zombie ex, and we have guest appearances by US horror icons Debra Lamb and Lynn Low…

Review: "I'm A Gun!" (2017) - Directed by Mikeal Burgin!! (October 2017)

Intense short film I'm A Gun (2017) is directed, written and edited by Mikeal Burgin. It's a ten minute film narrated by a Hitman who is killing off his Prey in the City. It has got a slight Tarantino feel in it's approach with a bit of dark humor and obvious Violence! It features a few twists here and there - featuring some bad language and intense drama scenes, too! For Mature Audiences, Only!

I really enjoyed I'm A Gun! The soundtrack was killer towards the end and keeps you on your toes. Burgin is a crafty film maker dipping into genres which takes the audience on a wild, unpredictable ride throughCinema Craftiness!

Plot:"A gun-for-hire accepts a shady contract targeting a beautiful and deadly woman. When the mark's disabled brother gets in the way, the job quickly turns into a desperate fight for survival inside a den of madness and brutality.".

RIP Debra Mayer: (1969 - 2015) (May 2015)

It's a sad day, there is a rumor of the passing of Full Moon Entertainment actresses passing. She played in Blood Dolls (1999), Voodoo Academy (2002) and other films. 
Director Charles Band posted the following on Facebook: "I am so saddened by the news of Debra Mayer passing away. She was a very talented actress and extremely devoted to her craft. Debra was in several Full Moon films and I have many fond memories of her excellent work in Dr. Moreau’sHouse of Pain and especially Blood Dolls. She was extremely devoted to her career and left behind an impressive body of work that many admire, and I only hope she is able to somehow observe the outpouring of love and affection for the films she was in and the characters she played by the many fans who followed her. May she truly rest in peace.".

Another friend of hers, J.R. Bookwalter also wrote on the social media site: "Stunned to hear about the sudden passing of Debra Mayer, who I first met during post-production on…
