Actress and model Sarah French gets us into the Christmas spirit with some very recent holiday photos. Besides making the move to Los Angeles early next year, Sarah will have a lot going on in 2015. Several films she stars in (Zombie Dollz, Insectula, Hollywood Apocalypse, and Bad Habit, to name a few) are slated for release within the next few months and two more she recently completed (A Cursed Coven, and Chainsaw Maidens) should be out later in 2015. She's currently working on Marilyn: Zombie Hunter, which was the focus of this October article.

Known for photographing outrageously sexy models who look as if they only exist in fantasies, artist and photographer Mike James has an unmistakable style. With the popularity and all the good feedback we've received from the July feature on Mike's gorgeous models, known as the "James Girls," I knew a follow-up was definitely in order.
As with all of Mike's former and current models I've corresponded with, the ladies who gave me their comments for this feature, speak very highly of Mr. James, personally and professionally, as he does of them. The James Girls included in the first article can all be considered current James Girls, as they have all done recent shoots with Mike and plan to again. Just two of the ladies featured in this piece fall into that category. Unfortunately, the others now currently reside in the "Former James Girls" file but there's hope they may again appear before his camera.
The vision in red above is one of Mike's current favorites, Mala Mastroberte, from a very recent shoot entitled "Red Devil." Mala is one of the two ladies in this article who currently models for Mike and graciously responded to my request for her comments on what it's like to work with him. Of course, it goes without saying who all the photo credits in this article go to.

When Natalie DeGennaro made her first film, she was a student, but you can't say she was a student filmmaker, since that refers to a film school student. Natalie was an elementary school student, who, at the age of 12, had realized her life's ambition was to produce and direct. Since then, she's continued to follow that path, focusing on films with heavier subject matter that are a far cry from the "chick flick" box that some may assume she'd be within, after learning she's a filmmaker.
Currently a sociology major at the State University of New York at Purchase, Natalie, now just shy of her 22nd birthday, tells me; "since I became a sociology major, I have made it a point to incorporate my sociological knowledge into my films." In fact, she plans on exemplifying that in her senior film project, entitled My Life and the Kinsey Scale, that she's currently busy researching and writing the screenplay for.
A native New Yorker and obvious Yankees fan, Natalie says she would never want to leave the Big Apple to live anywhere else. The accompanying photos here, all courtesy of Natalie, herself, definitely seem to confirm that.

Above is Youtube star Jess Greenberg belting out an acoustic cover of the 1971 Led Zeppelin classic "Rock and Roll" that would surly make Page and Plant proud. Jess, who'll be 20 next month, performs all the songs she covers unaccompanied, unplugged, without overdubbing, and in the original keys they were written in.
Despite her up-front, outrageous sexiness, some cleverly-titled articles on her videos like "The Breast 'Highway To Hell' Cover Of All Time" and some bloggers criticizing her for "sexying-up" her image since her Youtube debut four years ago, Jess' playing and singing can easily stand on their own, regardless of the look she goes with. To hear and, of course, see more of Jess, check out her Youtube channel, her official website and she's on Twitter.

I thought an interview with model and actress Chrissie Wunna would have been a fun and entertaining piece. I don't even remember how I first heard of her but she was one of the contestants on the "reality" show Paris Hilton's British Best Friend. I didn't see it, but after checkinh out its Wikipedia page, I assumed Chrissie definitely wouldn't be one to pass on any free publicity, so I asked her if she'd be willing to do an interview for this site. She replied to my message and accepted the offer, but unfortunately and despite my efforts, it didn't end up happening. Anyway, enjoy the following unanswered questions.

The 2013 short Mannequin from Cowmaster Studios is testimonial to the interesting things apartment dwellers can find discarded by their fellow tenants. Of course, it's unclear if the mannequin was discarded by someone, or perhaps, escaped from a department store and was just hanging out at the complex's trash area (since it's a place visited often and by every resident there), in hopes someone would take her into their apartment.
For whatever reason the mannequin was there, when the lovely resident (played by Amelia Gotham) just snapped a photo of the mysterious figure and walked away, it apparently pissed off the living doll. The ending leaves the viewer guessing the outcome. As for Amelia, find out more on her at her official website.

Megan Sacco is the founder and CEO of Lady Haunter Management, which is an independent film company that works to support local charities in the Boston area. Hers would have made for an interesting interview, if it would have happened. It didn't but, since I'm not going to let my good questions go unseen (even though they may go unanswered), here they are. Of course, at left would have been a photo of Megan and credit for that photo would have been written here.
