“Moonstruck” is a psychological thriller, telling the story of a new widow dealing with the aftermath of losing her husband in a car accident. Plagued with heartbreak and suffering from restless nights, the young woman comes up with a strange idea that finally grants her a good night’s sleep. Her taboo solution may lighten her heavy heart but is sure to shock others.
Bailey Russell suffers from insomnia after her husband, Richard, dies in a car accident. Her visits to grief counseling and returning to work do not help. She spends her sleepless nights reminiscing about what used to be and fearing what lies ahead. One night, a certain article of her husband’s clothing catches her eye that may make everything better again.
“Moonstruck” is Jeremy Thao’s senior capstone project and the latest film from B-Team Productions, which Jeremy is a co-founder of. Jeremy recently wrote “Where is Annie Overby?”, the most recent B-Team production, which he was also the 1st AD on. At the end of their senior year, film students are required to complete a project of their choosing that highlights all that they have learned in their four years of film school.
Jeremy’s senior film will be crewed up by the most talented and experienced young filmmakers to come out of the University of North Georgia. They will combine their talents, efforts, and experiences from making feature films, film-festival-winning short films, and music videos to make “Moonstruck” one of the best projects to come out of UNG.
Playing the lead role of Bailey Russell is Ashley Ames. Ashley is an actress who moved to Atlanta from Minneapolis almost two years ago. She recently got her first television role on Homicide Hunter and is now working toward her next goal of being cast in a feature length film. She is represented by The Jana VanDyke Agency.
Aside from acting, Ashley is a freelance portrait photographer who loves to draw, write, do yoga, drink coffee, and spend time with her husband and her cat named Fig.
The crew of “Moonstruck” is passionate, dedicated, and more than ready to claim their spot in the rising film scene that is Atlanta. With this Producer/Director duo, Tatianna Pangle and Jeremy Thao are ready to make this film another one for the books. Jeremy and Tatianna started working together in film school at the University of North Georgia and have been inseparable since. With their most recent film, “Where is Annie Overby?” done, Jeremy and Tatianna and ready for their next adventure.
