Edward Case loved movies and writing stories since childhood. He got into screenwriting after college. Since then, he garnered six options from producers, though none resulted in actual production. Over time, he started writing shorts, hoping to find a director to shoot them. He shot two very micro budgeted shorts during grad school at the University of Cincinnati (for History, not film school - Edward wasn't great at matching his majors with his ambitions). His brother Alvin, just as passionate about movies as he was, jumped directly into shooting movies, and enlisted Edward to co-script projects. With Edward contributing in scripting or story development, Alvin shot several low budget features. Edward continues to help his brother develop his projects, though he hopes to get behind the camera to direct as well. He...

It was only a matter of months before Gary found his second agent in Venice Beach, CA. Suzanne Moore, with Miller-Moore Talent. The...

Garrett Ratcliff completed his PhD in history at the University of Edinburgh in 2013, taught at the university level, and published; in other words, he was on his way to an academic career. But, somewhere along the line, he realized that his love for history was always about the stories and, in fact, had begun with "historical" films (like Errol Flynn’s Robin Hood and El Cid). As much as he enjoyed teaching, his heart was just not in academia, so he left the ivory tower and returned to where it began -- stories and film.In 2015, he studied screenwriting at the Tisch School at New York University.

When Heidi was four years old her mom couldn’t afford a great daycare for her and her sister, so the girls got dropped off at the Lollypop Ranch each day. What her mother didn’t know was that during nap time the daycare workers would play old black and white horror movies on a movie projector while the children tried to sleep. These are Heidi’s earliest and fondest memories of film. Now, we’ll never know what possessed these daycare workers to show horror movies to children, but two outcomes were likely for Heidi: become a serial killer or become a fan of all things horror. Luckily for her friends and family, Heidi became the latter. She enjoys writing horror as well.
