I’m proud to post a new film I wrote, directed, filmed and acted in called Candle after Candle. It’s about the childhood of Kayla (a fictional character), who is now just turning eighteen. She pauses to reflect the ups and downs of her life so far by remembering her past birthdays. Enjoy!
An article about Shelley appearing in NewEnglandFilm.com quotes director Andrew Wesman and his selection of then 14-year-old Stephanie Simonoff for the title role. “Stephanie is the opposite of her character. She’s really bubbly and happy. The first take she did in her audition was all wrong, but I simply explained the character and she completely transformed. She’s amazing.”
Stephanie made the front page of last Sunday’s “TV, Arts & Entertainment” section in the New Hampshire Sunday News (a.k.a. the Manchester Union Leader)! The article is about Steph’s starring role in Shelley, a selection for the Cannes Film Festival this month, and includes an interview that also appeared in NewHampshire.com. That Sunday News section does not appear on the paper’s web site, but they sent us PDF images of the pages:
