Crew Bios:

Kelsey Struve-Director
Kelsey got started in filmmaking all the way back in the 4th grade. She would remake classic scenes from different movies with her friends. Since those moments, she's always loved working with cameras and actors. 

The art of acting has always inspired Kelsey. She's always been intrigued by watching people act like a different character and loves the idea of being the one to bring that out of them.

Some of Kelsey's favorite scary movies include: A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Sixth Sense, and Signs.

Kelsey's dream job is to work in the talent department at Disney or Pixar. Some ideal positions would be casting director, talent scout, or an agent. 

Nick Green-Producer
Nick's love and passion for film started back when he would watch films all the time with his uncle. He spent a lot of his free time watching films and studying them and his passion only grew. 

Inspriation for Nick comes from almost anything, but especially music and art. He finds the act of someone creating music fascinating and the idea of creating with your hands, beautiful. 

Some of Nick's favorite scary movies include: Child's PlayIt, and Saw.

An ideal work place for Nick is simply a place where the people share the same passion  he has. Not having a specific title or position in mind, he would like to go to wherever the best fit for him is. 

Chris Slawson-Writer
Chris has always been infatuated with film and filmmaking. He got started writing at a young age and his interest rapidly increased. 

Being a writer, Chris likes to use personal experience to inspire himself. He often draws from his past for movie ideas and scenarios. 

Some of Chris' favorite scary movies include: The StrangersThe Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Vacancy

A dream job for Chris would be to have a writer position for Saturday Night Live.

Matt Zlamal-Director of Photography

When looking for inspiration, Matt can call to almost anything from real life experiences, to paitings and books. 

Some of Matt's favorite scary movies include: Silver BulletHalloween, and Scream

In the future, Matt hopes to be a director of photography for feature films.
