I met an real Angel earlier this week, her name is Anastasia Gukovskaya and she is one of the youngest World Champions I have ever met. I got to meet her father, talk to her a little bit and see what a New Rising Star looks like up close and personal. At only 15 Years of Age, this young phenom speaks four languages, is a Martial Arts Champion, and has hopes of becoming a world known actress. Made me want to ask myself, what I was doing at 15? At any rate with no further adieu, please meet the lovely and talented Anastasia Gukovskaya.
"My name is Anastasia Gukovskaya.I was born in Moscow, Russia on May 1, 2003. I came to Cyprus when I was 6 years old, with my family. I started a six-year-old martial sport.

Kleer Bros and Action On Film are pleased to announce that Dane Bowling is the winner of the 2018 Kleer Bros. Story to Screen Award for the screenplay “Punk Noir” written by Dane and his writing partner Ethan Stanislawski. Dane and Ethan were one of three finalists announced at Action On Film Megafest 2018, and although they were 2nd Runner Up in the initial round based on their synopsis, they worked very hard during the mentoring phase of the award and completed their screenplay at a high level of excellence. It's not easy to take a story from synopsis to completed script in only three months time, but Dane and Ethan took on the task with enthusiasm, and guided by mentor Kirk Ryde they have produced a script that Kirk believes will lead to a film of lasting beauty. Now, Action on Film will present $25,000 toward the production of “Punk Noir” as produced by Kleer Bros. Entertainment, with Dane and Ethan receiving $1,000 of this award for their screenplay. “Dane and Ethan are great writers,” says Kirk, “collaborative, creative and open minded, and they showed consistency of effort throughout the writing phase of the award. I'm excited to be producing “Punk Noir” and look forward to premiering this film at AOF Megafest 2019. See you all in Vegas!” “Punk Noir” is the story of a detective investigating a grisly murder in the punk world of 1980's Los Angeles, winding his way down a mohawked path of anarchists, mobsters, junkies and lawmen, all the while chasing the one thing he could never have: the girl. Pre-production is currently underway. Visit www.kleerbros.com/storytoscreen for more information.
