April A. Frampton
Director of PR and Marketing April is our in-house rock star and spokesperson. She is also the watchdog and protects each of us with such passion that we don’t even dare to cross her.

President, Screenwriter, Author Lee is the author of the critically acclaimed novel Speed of Light and penned the illustrated books Humbug, A Christmas Carol and Beau and the Beanstalk. He has also written many screenplays and is currently working on Stan Lee’s Legion of 5. He is also very humble and does not feel the need to brag about his incredible, amazing and unmatched writing skills. IMDB
Head of Physical Production / Producer Dano does it all. He has been 1st Assistant Director on more films that any of us know how to count and is known for getting things done. He is producer on several upcoming films and his participation as part of our team is essential. Without him on our side we would all quit. IMDB
VFX Supervisor Bob has worked on some of the most incredible films and television shows like 24, Live Free or Die Hard and Mission Impossible III and he has even won an Emmy. When the director is desperate and needs to have the shot set up perfectly, Bob is the one to have on set. His professionalism will calm tensions and if needed he can pick up his computer and create effects on the spot. IMDB
Lead VFX Artist Christian’s talents amaze even the unamazable (if that is a word). He sits in an office that looks more like a space ship than an Japanese spa but has elements of both. No one in this world has more monitor screens in front of him at any one time. His work is what makes us and every project we work on look amazing. IMDB
