While I was in Canada, just before the big move to Australia I was offered a role in a local, independent short film based out of the Alberta countryside. I worked amongst Monica LeBlond, Hans Potter, Graham Mothershill, Eddy Saadeh, Joshua Lee Coss, and Owen Bishop. The film was directed by Grant Leon Smith.
This was definitely an interesting piece to work on. It was extremely cold outside during the blizzards and dry snow season, but we started filming it in Autumn. Anyone notice any continuity errors? Due to the low budget, there was very basic film equipment used, but it was a chance for Grant Smith to direct and record a vision he has had for a while. The The Trespassers Teaser Trailer gives you a 49 second clip to see what the gist of the short film is about. You even have the option of streaming the final production for $3.
Now I know it sounds like I am trying to sell it to you, and in a way I kind of am. That’s what we are supposed to do, isn’t it? Spread the word through social media, especially if it is a project that we’ve worked on with other like-minded creatives! Proud moment, mum! *wink*
Check out The Trespassers Poster Mock Up that we used to advertise it. If you do watch it, or feel like sharing independent projects, please share this with someone. Our entire team is very appreciative, in advance!
Love, peace, and glowing-flowing positive energy your way! ~Ashley x

Ashley Tallas is an actress, known for The Corrupted (2010), The Profane Exhibit (2013) and Case Study of Zacheriah (2011). She started studying theater acting, singing, and a variety of dancing in Canada at Victoria Composite High School of Performing and Visual Arts (1999-2007). Knowing that this was a passion of hers, she pursued theater by joining The Edmonton Fringe Festival in the performance: Solitude (2007), directed by Grant Pulay. She then submerged into Theatre Sports by attending classes at Rapid Fire Theater and teaching beginner Improv at the Saint Albert Children’s Theater (2008). She has also appeared in national commercials for clients Integra Tire and Century Park condominiums.
This all occurred before her big move to Australia in 2012 when Ashley blossomed into a network marketing butterfly, winning the title Miss Social Network (November 2012), and also gained exposure through her free-lance modeling network. Even though her main focus was on University and her following career, she pursued acting and modeling which has helped her gain exposure in Singapore and Australia.
This girl is looking forward to what the Universe brings her way. She is ready to jump forward with her ‘Can Do’ attitude by continuing to grow as an artist and fine tuning her body as the main instrument she uses.
