Crew

Ryan Elainska Writer, Producer, Director, Editor The first story Ryan remembers writing is one about a monster that eats fuses. This story is longer than that one. It is also Ryan’s feature directing debut, and he figured that recreating the monster for the screen would involve quite a bit of expensive special effects work beyond the range of his budget. Most people have circuit breakers now, anyway.

Myles Miner Director of Photography Myles Miner has had a facination with film since age four when he would use his Silly Putty on slick ads in weekend edition of the local paper. It started with the advertising of movies and the movies themselves and grew through the years into stunt driving, composing, cinematography and finally writing and directing. He considers the period between 1968 to 1989 as the most important years in film. “I have so many influences from Steven Spielberg to John Cassavetes, Ridley Scott, David Fincher, Mark Romanek, Stanley Kubrick and on and on. I tend to be very visual-minded, but story is still most important to me.” A little-known fact about Myles is until age six he lived four and a half blocks from legendary director Howard Hawks’ birth home. In the fall of 2006, Myles worked as a Camera Intern on the feature film “Elsewhere” starring Anna Kendrick, Paul Wesley, Tania Raymonde and Jon Gries. He is currently in production on a web series, Streets of Babylon .

David McCall Gaffer, Additional Sound, Additional Camera, Practical Effects Starting at the bottom and moving up, David McCall has ten toes, but only eight toenails, two sturdy scottish legs, a barrel chest, short, scottish arms, and a thick neck which is an appropriate plinth for his massive viking head. In his head are two, slightly defective blue eyes he uses to see things. Also in his head is a warped brain which likes to interpret what he sees in new ways. David’s brain doesn’t think outside the box, but denies the existence of a box in the first place. David enjoys participating in many creative arts: photography, creating music, painting, printmaking, and sculpting.
