Amber Moelter was born in Aberdeen, South Dakota. After living in Seoul, South Korea, from age eight to eleven, she grew up in the northern suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota, where her family settled after returning to the United States.
Having trained in dance, theater and gynnastics at high school, she attended Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, studying Contemporary and Classical Dance Performance and graduated in 2000. While living in Australia she made her screen debut, appearing in Invincible.
Relocating to London, Moelter studied at the London Studio Centre (Middlesex University) and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Theatre Dance (Musical Theatre) in 2003. Alongside her studies, she acted onstage in school productions and showcases of A Chorus Line (Sheila Bryant), Chicago (Roxie Hart) and Into the Woods (The Witch). She also appeared in the off-West End production of Cosi at The Bridewell Theatre.
In 2005 Moelter moved to New York and formed her own production company, ALM Talkies. Its first production was another Catwoman fan film, Catwoman: Resolution, released online on January 1, 2007. The character's purple and black catsuit was custom-made by Vex Clothing of Chicago, and based on the costume designed by Jim Balent for the Catwoman: Guardian of Gotham Elseworlds comic book.
In 2009 Moelter completed her directorial debut Dirty Step Upstage, which she also wrote, acted in, and edited. The film is loosely based on events that transpired when she attended the MIDEM music trade fair in 2006. Dirty Step Upstage was selected as the opening night film of the 2009 Chashama Film Festival, an event affiliated with the Chashama non-profit arts organization based in New York and held in October 2009. Moelter won the Best Actress award at the festival. In December 2009 the film was nominated in ten categories at the Maverick Movie Awards, and Nova Reid won the Best Actress award.
The soundtrack to Dirty Step Upstage included two songs written and performed by Moelter. In September 2009 these songs were included on the Disguise EP, released by Moelter under the stage name of Girl In The Red Dress, a character from the film. The musicians on the EP included guitarist Rowan Robertson (Musician).
