FlickDirect Correspondents and Critics

Our FlickDirect staff can frequently be seen at red carpet events, press junkets, expos, and more, to bring you latest entertainment coverage available. They are constantly hard at work reviewing films and chasing down interviews to bring you their take on the entertainment industry and the products it creates.

FlickDirect, Sean Ferguson
Sean Ferguson, Senior Correspondent
Even as a kid, mimicking film sequences with his Star Wars action figures, Sean's fascination with movies was obvious. As he aged, the idea of missing the first showing of Titanic or Who Framed Roger Rabbit on opening day was unthinkable. This appreciation started with current films, continued into classic films, and now even his iPod is filled with nothing but soundtrack scores from John Williams to Danny Elfman.

FlickDirect, Judith Raymer
Judith Raymer, Senior Correspondent
It was the classic movies shown Saturdays after the morning cartoon lineup that piqued Judith's curiosity for film. That curiosity would give way to a lifetime of exploration and contribution to media productions of all sorts. After meandering through the worlds of fashion, public relations, advertising, film and television, she produced what would be the greatest passions of her life...Phoenix & Santiago. Six years later, the three would become engaged in daily reenactments primarily from the Marvel world of comic books, TV animations and film. These daily impromptu interpretations would help segue her back to the entertainment industry, and her dedication to "the Bohemian ideals of truth, beauty, freedom, and above all things...love."

Austin’s love for film started in his early teens when he saw the first Lord of the Rings. Although it was A Clockwork Orange that made him want to become a film maker. His favorite films include The Lord of the Rings trilogy, A Clockwork Orange, The Exorcist, Empire Strikes Back and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. He has directed 5 short films and is currently working on his 6th. Currently he is attending Palm Beach State College for a Film/TV Production degree.

Stephanie can’t remember a time when she didn’t love movies. She grew up watching vintage Disney movies, sci-fi adventures like Star Wars (thanks to her Dad), and classics like Singin’ in the Rain, Swing Time, and The Philadelphia Story (thanks to her Mom). In college at Hope International University, she finally tried her hand at entertainment reporting and discovered a new passion. Since then, she’s attended and covered as many film festivals, pop culture conventions, and screenings as she can and plans to continue doing so for many years.

Gina Prizzi, Correspondent
Gina Prizzi's love for the arts started from her young childhood growing up in South Florida and partaking in such TV series icons as "Miami Vice", "Big Trouble" and "Wild things". Coming from a family of talented Broadway stars and talent agents she pursued her love in singing with hits on the radio to a dance career in Las Vegas as a showgirl and modeling. Her love of movies /acting and dance led her to want to work behind-the-scenes and sparked her interest in speaking with the actors and their take on the movies the parts they portray.

Ever since Emily was a young girl she has desired to be involved in the Arts. A ballerina dancer by trade, she takes time off from her love of dance to help out FlickDirect with interviews and speaking at some of our events. She especially loves reading books being made into movies including the Hunger Games series and Divergent.
