    Some of ATA's Amazing Talents:

    When our actors are in between jobs some of our actors have fun making their own work. The following is a volunteer job that some of our amazing talents did. ATA's Diana Hart played Molly and ATA's Kevin Gerrior played her husband, Gary Fontaine wrote, directed and produced the commercial and Dean Aubie was camera and Cinematographer. They made the commercial to submit in the Doritos commercial contest for the Superbowl.

    WISP, our feature film:

    Writer/Director Benjamin Stevens’s first feature film is a gripping lost-in-the-woods video-verite horror flick that begins with a whimsical search for the lights of the Will O’the Wisp and then descends into a struggle for survival against an unforseen biological threat. As four attractive, articulate and gamely overconfident pre-grad twentysomethings become inarticulate, unconfident and unattractive as they face the growing unknown, the film’s intensity builds expertly into a palpable sense of terror. Tense, engrossing and tersely executed, Wisp is a briskly original take on a well-worn genre that examines the fragile bonds of today’s social-media-mad generation.
    Director: Benjamin Stevens, Writer: Benjamin Stevens, Stephen MacLean,
    Cast: Lisa Rose Snow, Holly Stevens, Joel Freckelton, Michael Gaty, Michael Taylor.
    Executive Producer: Hank White, Gary Hill, Nancy Hill.
    Producer: Benjamin Stevens, Stephen MacLean.

He turns to his ultra suave housemate Ryan, who has a different girlfriend every day, for advice. Together they devise an elaborate plan, to make a (secretly fake) feature-length film, and cast his love interest in the leading role.

    But when love-struck Joe inadvertently promises the girl of his dreams to create a romantic comedy, combined with elements of horror, mystery, action and a spooky reality based ending, he is bound to oblige. The ensuing chaos results in the creation of a touching and genuine film about relationships, and the pain of losing the one you love.
