LOS ANGELES, CALIF. — Los Angeles-based Tidal Wave Entertainment wrapped production and is in post production on the horror thriller Lantern’s Lane featuring actress and West Hartford native Ashley Doris. She plays the role of Missy in the motion picture according to an email from the film company.
Doris has worked steadily in print, commercials and films since pursuing her acting career. She has been featured in music videos for artists including Snoop Dogg, Jason Derulo, Tech N9ne, Jay Sean and Two Chains to name a few.

“In March, we were on course to shoot in Los Angeles in May. Then COVID-19 hit,” says Lydia Cedrone, the film’s producer. “We worked nonstop to develop an alternative plan.”
While the film studios and lauded production companies remained at a standstill, Cedrone and Justin LaReau, the film’s writer/director, reassured their investors and moved forward to shoot the film.
Adds LaReau, “We did everything via Zoom. Auditions, crew hires, all the planning, you name it. Everyone was on board with making this movie a success.” Production wrapped successfully in August and currently the film is in post production with an expected release date of early 2021.
