Area actresses to appear in “Ghosties”
Beaumont actress will appear in a spooky film produced in Montgomery. It’s the kind of story I would have loved as a tween. Quantum Storm Productions, in an association with Wolfe Entertainment, began production on the pre-teen adventure “Ghosties – The Witches Spell” starring local Beaumont actresses Ashlyn Redwine and Haley Coker; Katy’s Katelyn Merricks and Emily Thompson; Spring’s Anisah Khan; Sugarlands Jessica Yanker, and actor Tanner Fontana from Dallas.
The girls sneak out of their homes to cemeteries to hunt ghosts. Most ventures end in wasted time, but one parent has ghost-encounter skills.
Director/writer David Quintana reports the film is an extension from two short movies originally filmed in New England in 2006. He is known in Houston for efforts on the Internet series “ANGELIKA5.” The studio is planning a casting call. Pre-teens wanting to try out for a role should first follow the first films progress through their facebook page at www.facebook.com/ghostiesmovie.

Do friends know us best? I was reading Lisa Verge Higgins’ “The Proper Care and Maintenance if Friendship” while experiencing some of the emotions characters were facing. In this story, Rachel has died having prepared letters to all her friends asking them to fulfill one last, seemingly uncomfortable wish for her. They think she sent the wrong letters to each other, but turns out, she knew what she was doing.
