Writer-Director Chris Hansen
Check out the Directorís blog here
Writer-Director Chris Hansen is an enigma. At least, thatís what heíd like to believe. He really likes to see himself as some beret-wearing, red-wine drinking ultra-cool artist. But in reality, heís an award-winning writer and director, a husband and father, and a professor of communication studies at Baylor University. That means he wears a lot of hats, which is fine with him because they cover his growing bald spot. But none of those hats is a black beret.
Chris graduated from Lee College and earned graduate degrees in film production and script & screenwriting from Regent University. His work has earned him acclaim in a variety of screenwriting competitions (including placing in the prestigious Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting and earning a Platinum 1st place award for best original dramatic screenplay from the Houston Worldfest International Film Festival).
He has written numerous screenplays, including the original play and screen adaptation for the independent feature film Monsters Donít Get to Cry (directed by Kurando Mitsutake). He also directed the award-winning short films Keeping Up With the Joneses and Flanaganís Exile.
Producer Brian Elliott
The necessary stuff:
Brian Elliott is an award-winning Producer-Director-Writer who has worked in a variety of media related fields, including live television, commercials, music videos, corporate video, documentaries and independent feature films. Over the years, his projects have taken him to 10 different countries on 4 different continents. Brian is also a Senior Lecturer at Baylor University, teaching primarily production and screenwriting courses, and he is the Founder and President of the Graceworks Foundation.
Blah blah blah...
Hereís the cool stuff:
Brian also gets to be the husband of Susan Elliott, and the father of Tim and Ben Elliott. Now thatís something worthy of putting in a bio.
Co-writer David Lovic
Co-writer David Lovic has spent years honing his screenwriting and songwriting craft in absolute obscurity. In total fear of the outside world and of receiving rejection letters from 20 year-old, bean-counting, summer interns, he has never entered his work in any competition.
Yet, over the last 15 years, he has compiled an impressive list of work. Itís numbered and everything! While available space limits itsí total inclusion, an unnumbered excerpt of said list includes: 2 feature screenplays, 4 short screenplays, 1 nusical, 300+ songs, 5 music CDs, 3 music videos, 4 short films including the completely unknown Biff Pork series, and 1 book of short stories.
When being a little more serious, he may admit to having his songs played on numerous radio stations since the late 80ís. He may also admit to having done some video work for a major Christian record label or writing, producing and directing over 10 instructional and promotional videos for his part-time company, Fountainhead Creative. He lives in Upstate New York with his wife Alane and daughter Emma, whose affections are, in truth, his greatest achievement.

Damon is a graduate of Baylor University with a B.B.A. in Marketing/Management. His productions have won many local and national awards.
