ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Ama Lea grew up in Stephen King Country- Bangor, Maine where she naturally had an inclination to the horror genre from a very early age. She spent her youth making films on old Camcorders, editing between VCRs and taking pictures in cemeteries.
After High School Ama moved to Boston where she majored in editorial photography at New England School of photography. She was Valedictorian of her graduating class.

When asked to be a part of the Soska’s annual blood drive, I was honored! It’s a great cause that’s been a tradition for women in horror and the Soska’s for years. I began to think about the theme…”be a hero.” Obviously capes and tights come to mind first but breaking it down to something even more simple. A hero in your life every day. To me, there is something so heroic about giving your all to another person. So many men have zero idea how to really be a great partner and furthermore, a great lover. To me the ability to give unselfishly to another person is heroic and it’s the same as giving blood. The simple act of donating blood can help save lives. Nearly 4.5 million patients need a blood transfusion a year in the US and Canada alone and only 10% of the population donates per year. If we could increase that number by even 1% the blood deficit in America would disappear. This is a call to arms for the horror community. It’s in all of us to give!
Look for a NEW WiHM Massive Blood Drive PSA every day with the last one appearing on March 1st.
