The Team

Ben Andrews

Ben’s a self-described “hunter, gatherer and thrower of pine cones.”

The team describes him as a visionary, who also happens to be a prolific filmmaker, actor and writer. He’s also fun at parties…. or pretty much anywhere.

He’s done a ton of stuff in front of and behind the camera. You can check most of it out here.

If you ask him about his biggest passion right now, don’t be surprised if he mentions the incredible world and fascinating story he’s created with his TV vampire thriller, “Bloodletter.”


Lorraine Montez

Lorraine is the founder of Abundant Productions. The hummingbird plays a big part in her company, and in her own life.

She’s little, quick and fierce (mostly in a good way — but she’s also a redhead so there’s only so much hope there).

You can see most of the films she’s acted in or produced here.

The team calls her a logistical ninja. She’s good with that. She’s got a few passion projects in the works, including a few films and a radical TV show with the best acronym in the world, “SLIC.”


 

Ryan Wagenhauser

Ryan is a talented director, writer, and producer. He’s also the owner of The Nerd Chronicles…a name so cool that everyone else on the team is jealous they didn’t think of it first.

You can see a lot of Ryan’s work here.

Ryan’s passion project is anything smart horror. Loves it, can’t get enough of it, never will. He’s also got a great talent for voices, but you didn’t hear that from us.


David S. Hogan

David is an actor, filmmaker, and educator. But he’s not just any actor, filmmaker and educator. He’s one of the most in-demand actors in the Seattle area.

Check out David’s stuff here to see what we’re talking about.

David’s won a ton of awards for his filmmaking and acting endeavors.

He’s co-owner of Mighty Tripod Productions with partner, Angela DiMarco.  They both love dogs, and dogs love them. That’s the best endorsement ever.


Pete Souphasith

Pete’s a self-taught producer and filmmaker. That’s an awesome way to say he’s learned a lot of lessons the hard way.

He left a successful career in corporate America to follow his passion for the arts because like the rest of us artistic types, he’s wee bit crazy. But it worked; so far he’s made multiple commercials, short films and music videos. He’s also got a great eye for still photography.

You can see some of his awesome work here. 

He loves music videos, dance, action sports, and comedies.


Kira Sipler

After working in the corporate life of dotcoms, running her own massage therapy business, completing in a few marathons and triathlons, and driving forklifts, Kira thought she’d do something “easier” for a change and pursue her love of movies as a writer, producer, director and general set wrangler.

She surrounds herself with as many creative souls and good wine as possible, and her teammates are so happy she does, especially when she shares the wine.

Blending her love of storytelling and road trips, she is also Co-Founder of Jouska Road Productions.  Some of her work can be seen here.


Marissa Fujimoto

Marissa is the founder of Bear Bear Productions and co-owns Screaming Flea Creative Media. What she won’t tell you but our teammates will, is that she’s an awesome producer and filmmaker.

You can see some of her most notable projects here.

Her passion project is to spotlight the treatment of Japanese in internment camps during WWII. Her own family was interred and her goal is to educate younger generations and preserve the stories of aging survivors.


Chad Hutson

Chad is a former journalist and professional photographer who was too damn opinionated to last long in that profession.

He is a screenwriter trapped inside the body of an award-winning marketing/communications pro.

His most recent screenplay was a quarter finalist in the BlueCat screenwriting competition.

Not bored yet with this guy? Check his work out here.


Angela DiMarco

Angela’s a producer, acting coach and actor with impressive stage and screen credits. Her favorite roles are those where she gets to play bad-asses. That pairs well with her being a bad-ass in general.

She co-owns Mighty Tripod Productions and Mighty Tripod Acting Studio, where she produces thought-provoking stories and educating artists how to be MIGHTY!
