Child Actress Aja Wooldridge debuts alongside Shailene Woodley and Theo James in Insurgent

Top Atlanta child actress Aja Wooldridge’s first 2015 feature film debut will be the popular young adult dystopia “Insurgent”.  This is the second of the four part movie franchise adapted by author Veronica Roth. Last year blockbuster hit Divergent had record breaking box office numbers.  The second series is slated to exceed all expectations and expected to bring in higher box office sales. Reviews have given Shailene Woodley a very solid performance in the movie.

Aja Wooldridge plays the part of the Amity Faction Children.  Amity is one of the five factions in the world of Divergent. They believe in being peaceful, kind, forgiving, trustworthy, being self-sufficient and remaining neutral. Amity was formed by those who blamed war and fighting for human nature's faults. Their substance in the “Choosing Ceremony” is soil, which is symbolic of them doing the farming for all the factions.

Significant portion of the movie was filmed at a small farm called the Serebe Community at about 20 miles southwest From Atlanta, Georgia. Aja filmed for nearly the entire month of June 2014. It was an exciting time to be onset. All the cast and crew had to deal with lots of dirt, heat, bugs, and many injury’s.  Aja still enjoyed working everyday despite the brutal climate and setting.

About Child Actor and Model Aja Wooldridge:

Aja Wooldridge a.k.a. AjaModel, is a very popular child model and actress in Atlanta, Georgia. This highly sought after talent has completed over 50 fashion shows and worked on over 25 different filming projects. Aja has been blessed to work with many talented people such as Robin Givens, Darrin Henson, Cynthia Bailey, and many more celebrities.

About the Movie Insurgent:

Set in a future-dystopian world where a micro-society has been divided into factions, Tris (Woodley) is a “divergent,” someone whose innate abilities place her into more than one of those categories. Following the massacre of her parents and the other members of the altruistic Abnegation faction, Tris — along with boyfriend Four (Theo James) and the not-entirely-trustworthy Peter (Miles Teller) — are hiding out from wickedly ambitious Jeanine (Kate Winslet) with the gentle souls of Amity. Octavia Spencer, Naomi Watts and Ansel Elgort also star in “Insurgent,” which opens in the U.S. on March 20, 2015

The Goddess of Wall Street, Stephanie Adams, Welcomes Spring with an Ostara Event in NYC

Playboy Centerfold and Entrepreneur, Stephanie Adams, hosted a Wall Street event on Friday, March 20, 2015 entitled "Ostara" to welcome the Spring Equinox. The party, a modest modern day version of Marie-Helene de Rothschild's Surrealist Ball in 1972, promises a "rather fascinating" combination of guests that range from playmates, doctors, lawyers, bankers, corporate executives, producers, psychics, police officials, financial news correspondents, and everything else in between. According to Adams, "Everyone has an interesting story to tell, and I love bringing such a diverse group of people together to share their world with each other."
Adams is also celebrating the grand opening of her new medical wellness practices, now with two locations in the Financial District as well as one office near Grand Central, for a total of three companies she started after filing a lawsuit against the City of New York.
Back in 2012, Adams was awarded $1.2 million dollars by a jury and eventually decided to create Wall Street Chiropractic and Wellness with her husband so they could help others suffering from painful injuries as well. "My family and I have a lot to be thankful for, and we are fortunate enough to be able to share our happiness with all of our guests."
Along with music, cocktails, and a stunning penthouse panoramic view of NYC from one of their office buildings located at 75 Wall Street, Adams will also be featuring some of her unique photographic art as well as her collection of GODDESSY books and other New Age memorabilia at the party, making it truly a magical experience for those attending.
Labeled by many who refer to her as "The Goddess of Wall Street," Adams actually once knew "The Wolf of Wall Street" and invited him to her social gathering. But according to one of their mutual friends, "He will probably not be in NYC at that time, but Wall Street is in good hands with The Goddess now."

“Banger”, a feature film written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mike Berry of Skip Thomas Productions begins filming on May 23, 2015.  Berry brings to the screen this suspense thriller that is sure to make audiences hold on to the edge of their seats.

When a turf war between two street gangs leads to the death of a Haitian immigrant, his mother conjures up a spell to bring her son back from the grave to exact revenge on those responsible. The code of the street is simple; stay true to the gang, stay focused on the streets, but most importantly, stay ALIVE.

In true Skip Thomas form expect twists and turns along with a jaw dropping conclusion.  “We have also assembled a phenomenal cast,” says COO and Producer Tina Hobbs,  “made up of seasoned actors from the area and have recently added the talented Clifton Powell (Ray, Menace to Society, Dream Girls), Omar Gooding (Baby Boy, Barbershop, Smart Guy) and Ohio Native Joe Estevez best known for his impressive trail of movie credits as well as his famous acting family (Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez) to the roster."

Both Berry and Hobbs are products of Cleveland’s inner city with a passion for giving back to the community.  The production has partnered with Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) and The Gaulding Law Firm to provide a charitable donation to youths interested in the entertainment industry.

Skip Thomas Productions is also the producers of “Secrets”, “If You Knew Better, You’d Do Better” and the award winning television pilot “3rd Floor West”.  “Banger” is expected to release early 2016.  Future announcements and updates may be found at www.Bangerthemovie.com.
