Amy got her start in entertainment at the tender age of 11, when she played the Virgin of Guadalupe in the 7th grade play. It was said that she handled the role with great sophistication.
Since receiving her BFA from Emerson College, Amy has worked as an actress on television (Commander in Chief), in film (Me and You and Everyone We Know, Chasing Papi) and in over 35 national television commercials. An award-winning playwright, Amy has also performed original sketch and improv comedy on both coasts for almost a decade. Amy's first film, "Jack and Jill," a short which she wrote and starred in, screened at film festivals nationwide.
Amy's work as a writer, actress and comedienne led her to directing, which she first tested out on the familiar stages of her beloved Elephant Theater Company in Los Angeles. Her production of the comedy "7 Redneck Cheerleaders" received rave reviews (including LA Times Critic's Pick), was nominated for the LA Weekly Award for Best Ensemble Comedy and has enjoyed 4 revivals in as many years. Amy is currently a participant in the 2010 AFI Directing Workshop for Women, a prestigious fellowship granted to 8 women each year. She will complete her AFI short film, "Hold For Laughs," by the end of the year. She is also writing the next socially relevant musical mockumentary with her brother, Spencer.
SPENCER JOHN FRENCH
Spencer got his start in entertainment staging elaborate lip synchs to Weird Al Yankovic songs for his parents' friends. These performances became so popular, that eventually, Spencer was able to charge admission.
Since then, he has continued his work as an accomplished musician; writing, producing, and performing on three full length albums. As the front man for the Los Angeles-based funk band "Polyester Jones," Spencer played at many of the popular music venues in the city and enjoyed hearing their single on the radio. His love of music led him to executive produce the show "Buscando Estrellas" -- a weekly television talent show/reality series aired on the Univision's Portland (OR) affiliate.
Spencer speaks fluent Spanish and holds a BA in Spanish Literature, as well as an MBA. He has over twelve years of experience in Spanish Media, a career which has included sales, management and equity positions at Univision and Telefutura affiliated television stations and industry leading Spanish radio station groups. In 1999, Spencer successfully raised over $1.5M in venture capital for Spanish language internet software company, Frontera Communications.
But now that he is an actor, he just wants to talk about his feelings and whether or not he should get his teeth fixed.
