Amy Hoff spent years travelling across the United States, living out of cars and cheap motels. She was a weightlifter and streetfighter, collecting monster legends across the country. Eventually she left the USA and continued travelling around the world. She is now a folklorist and historian specialising in monsters. She has never owned more than what can fit into a backpack and a suitcase.
She is also a model, actress, writer, and director. She founded a theatre company in Glasgow, Scotland, where she directed various cult classics for five years. She adapted Man in the Iron Mask and Good Omens for the stage. Cult Classic Theatre then became the foundation for her production company, Cult Classic Pictures.
Her web series, Caledonia, about a police station in Glasgow run by monsters, has been nominated for awards at festivals all over the world. The third instalment, a fantasy horror feature film entitled Burns Night, is currently in post-production.
Alasdair Reavey plays the second lead Dorian Grey in the Caledonia series. He is one of the founding members of Cult Classic Pictures and has been with them since they were performing on stage. Alasdair started as an extra and was slowly awarded larger parts before he finally landed the part of Dorian. On the stage he was provided with the opportunities to play Aramis in The Man in the Iron Mask and the horseman of the apocalypse, Famine, in Good Omens.
Originally a mathematics student Alasdair found that the creative arts suit him much better than his original studies. He is now a student of game design and will be working on a Caledonia-based video game. He has also played a large role in the management and organisation of the company’s projects.
Maria Jones is a Swedish actress and graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she earned her masters degree in acting and her international debut playing Helena in All’s Well That Ends Well at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, in a collaborative production with the RCS. Her other theatre credits include Captain Tench in Our Country’s Good (The Tron Theatre), Linda in Blood Brothers (Shock Theatre) and Ruth in The Homecoming (Govanhill Theatre). As a fan of cinema as a storytelling tool she has often created her own work, having written for both the web and screen. In 2016 she landed the leading role of DI Leah Bishop in Cult Classic Studios’ feature film Burns Night. Her other screen credits include the short fantasy films The Last Equinox and The Golden Goblet, the film noir Reflections of a Private Eye and the feature films Good to be back and FLUX."
Nike Johnston is a Glasgow-based makeup artist working throughout Scotland in fashion, bridal, TV and theatre. She trained at South Lanarkshire College, with Stardust Makeup Artistry (theatre and production) and Artisan Makeup at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (airbrushing for HD/RED), and has worked in makeup for theatre companies and a variety of independent films throughout Scotland.
A long-standing sci-fi and fantasy nerd, Nike joined Cult Classic productions in 2013 as a makeup artist for the urban fantasy webseries Caledonia: Mortal Souls. Currently, she serves as lead makeup artist for Caledonia, which is entering its third season with production of the feature-length film 'Burns Night', and she has appeared as a panellist at MCM Comic Con, Glasgow. When she's not working, Nike can generally be found drinking tea and watching Doctor Who, or trying to persuade her dogs to dress up in matching Star Wars costumes (with limited success).
