NEVER-ENDING STORY actress Tami Stronach returns to acting w/ Lauren Holly in ULTRA-LOW


30 years later, The Never-Ending Story’s Tami Stronach makes her much welcome return to the big screen.

The actress, forever remembered for her role in Wolfgang Peterson’s 80’s classic, has signed to appear in writer-director Nicholas Gyeney’s Ultra-Low starring Lauren Holly.

The film, a meta drama that takes an unfiltered look at the lives of an independent filmmaking team as they struggle to break down the doors of Hollywood, features most of it’s players as themselves.
“The script is about how hard it is to make a movie--as someone who has produced a lot of dance and theater I really related to the script and Nicholas makes that pain funny”, Stronach, also known for her years in dance, says. “Also I thought it was amusing to reintroduce myself back into film by playing myself trying to get back into film.”

Described as a cross between Clerks, Good Will Hunting, and Entourage, the film takes the audience into the tough world of independent filmmaking like no film has before.
The story begins with a filmmaking team that’s already sacrificed to make several feature films. While having significant indie budgets and films starring name actors, they can’t seem to get the attention of the industry elite. Upon learning the news that their latest endeavor will not be accepted into any top tier film festival, the team has hit rock bottom. With heavy hearts, they push each other to pick up and move forward on development of their next feature film, a supernatural thriller called The Red Vision, in hopes that it will be the one that finally turns heads their direction. As development progresses, the team lands actress Lauren Holly and her voice shines as a guiding light of wisdom for the young filmmakers as they fight through the trenches.

The long game plan for Ultra Low takes it beyond the movie and into producing the film within the film, The Red Vision; A supernatural thriller and love story described as a cross between Insidious, Ghost, and Unbreakable, which aims to enter production soon after wrapping production on Ultra Low.
Ultra Low is produced under Gyeney’s Seattle-based production banner Mirror Images LTD (Second Nature, Beta Test, Matt's Chance, The Penitent Man). It begins production in Seattle on March 6th.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
