Beau Valentine Thompson emerged as a graduate from the depths of Ball State University in 2011 with a diploma in Creative Writing in one hand and tens of thousands of dollars of debt in the other. After an unsuccessful bank robbery career, he now pursues more artistic... well, pursuits such as writing, drawing, and occasionally acting. Sometimes he does one of these things on camera but never all three at once! He also loves cats. Not in an Alf way, though.

Sean Orlosky was used to a humdrum existence as an administrative assistant/skydiver/party clown-for-hire, until Jac Kessler took him away from all that. Now, Sean enjoys the infinitely more enriching and stable existence of being a Kessler punching bag, where every umbrella tossed at him is a badge of honor.


Sean grew up on the movies of Golden Age Hollywood and a steady diet of the great American plays of the twentieth century, taking plenty of scenic detours along the way for cheesy sitcoms. All of these influences have shaped Sean’s eclectic thespian résumé. He’s played romantic leads, second bananas, heavies and pushovers, heroes and villains, larger than life and everyday Joes. His stage work encompasses William Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett and David Mamet, and he has also performed extensive voice-over work for radio. Sean derives plenty of fun and satisfaction from seeking new challenges as an actor, and he is delighted to be part of the team of talented individuals making up Pale Moonlight Cinema.

Mia has dabbled in theatre acting for half her life, playing roles such as Belinda in Noises Off! and Grazia in Death Takes a Holiday. With additional experience in black box horror theatre, acting in front of a camera was not so spooky after all!

John Parker



This is John Parker and contrary to popular belief he's actually a caveman. We found him in a cave during one of our film shoots frozen in ice. We took him home to thaw him out and we've been teaching him things about the modern world. When he saw the movie Pretty Woman he decided to get a career in the movie industry so he too could be the next Julia . We wrote this for him...because he can not write. He is a caveman.

Morgan Fuller



With a flare for the dramatic, yet an oddly shy (at first) personality, who better to play the Blonde Virgin in the very crazy and hysterical short, Beach Party. Making her film debut, Morgan Fuller stepped out from behind the scenes into the front row of a REDACTED filled van. She has dabbled in musical productions such as Annie Get Your Gun and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, yet she is more likely to be found behind the camera running around as an AC.
