I recently read over at The Filipino-American that February 20, 2011 is a big day for Filipino-American actress Mae Flores as it will be the premier night for her movie, Atlantis Down at the Los Angeles Italia Film Festival in Hollywood. According to her interview with the Fil-Am website, “I am especially excited to see my Filipino friends and fans there who have been an inspiration and driving force in helping me achieve the things I have always wanted to do.”
Atlantis Down is a SCI-FI futuristic movie in the year 2025…The Shuttle Program has been privatized and the shuttle Atlantis relegated to glorified taxi between space stations. Its crew is on a routine mission, conducting experiments – little do they know – they are the experiment. Atlantis Down is produced by MaXaM Productions, a UK based company with representative offices in Los Angeles, Virginia Beach and Rome, Italy. The company specializes in productions of video content and multimedia content. www.maxamproductions.com
Mae Flores was born in Quezon City, Philippines. When she was 3 years old, her mother enrolled her at the Cultural Center of the Philippines where she studied dance. She was also accepted into the Children Repertory Theatre in Makati and various reputable dance academies in Manila, where she studied dance, theatre and music. When she was 11 years old, Mae Flores moved with her family to Chicago, where her mother and aunt continued to nurture her theater and dance training. She later moved to Los Angeles, where she concentrated on her acting. Mae has appeared in small roles within independent films, as well as commercials. Her big break arrived when she was chosen as one of the leads in the feature film, “Atlantis Down”, which she credits as the turning point in her life and her career.
