Lauren Vanderveen

Film Critic Writer Editor

Lauren received her bachelor's degree in film studies from North Carolina State University in Raleigh. One line of a Wesley Morris review inspired her to become a film critic and dare to be so commanding of the English language: She could pin a corsage on you with a sword. Her last position as a contributing writer was for Up & Coming, a weekly newspaper in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Now as a freelance writer, she spends her time doing what she loves most: watching and reviewing movies. Her all-time favs include a mixed bag of Kristen Stewart indies, a lot of Yasujiro Ozu, and the film Notorious, without a doubt.

Adam Cabrera

Actor Producer

Adam Cabrera has been acting in Hollywood for several years studying and struggling to make it in a tough industry and town with little successes leading him to that one life changing moment.  He came from a small town in New Mexico and always had a passion for acting since he was little, but didn't pursue fully until he realized there is nothing else he would rather do.  Like many people he lives to travel and have new experiences, and as long as he can act he will continue to do so, he is always looking for new projects and new opportunities along the way.
