Adam Hall is the award-winning filmmaker of “Sudden Death!” “Anniversary” and “A Mild Case of Death.” Adam was raised in the Ozark mountains by rabid wolverines before getting his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. After interning for a summer at the US Capitol, Adam decided to leave the corrupt world of politics for a simpler, more innocent life in Hollywood. After a short stop in Virginia, where he met his lovely wife Melanie, he moved to Los Angeles, where he was accepted into the graduate film production program at the University of Southern California. Having now graduated from the MFA program, Adam is attempting to not starve. Adam’s future goals include: writing and directing feature films, world peace, and not working for the circus. He’s repped by Underground Management.


In the words of Adam Hall, "Kahle McCann is one of the finest gentlemen I've ever met ever in my whole life...and you can quote me on that...or my name's not Adam Hall!" And his name was Adam Hall, so that's how we know it's true.   Kahle is entertainer by nature and will someday be one by trade. When asked "What is it you do, Kahle?" his response is often "Do you mean aside from being unemployed?" The typical response to which is "Yes." And Kahle's follow up answer is generally "Writing, acting, and novelty music." Which inevitably provokes the question, "What is novelty music?" And the conversation just goes on and on and everyone feels enlightened by the end of it.


Born in rural Maine, Melanie moved often until her family settled in southeastern Pennsylvania. She received her bachelor’s degree in Communication and Political Science and completed her master’s degree in Film and Television Production in 2005, producing multiple award-winning short films during her time there. After moving to Los Angeles, Melanie found work as a producer’s assistant on several blockbuster films from Paramount, Universal Studios and Sony Pictures. She is also the producer of the multiple award winning short film, Sudden Death! Although not nearly as hilariously funny as her talented husband, Adam Hall, she is still funnier than Kahle McCann.

A lifelong native of Los Angeles, Kenny Wood has always been geared towards creating music.  His credits include the scores for the Oscar nominated short, "Oktapodi" as well as the Student Emmy Award winning short, "Camp Bean: All Things Woodsey."  Finding it difficult to get away from the sunshine, Kenny studied film composition at both UCLA and USC, which has more often than not, opened opportunities for great projects like "Sudden Death," which he composed the music for, winning multiple awards at film festivals around the country. Recent projects include music for "Project: Trojan, The Making of the 2009 USC Football Team," the online game show "MaxxIQ," and "Reflection" for the Nintendo DSi.

Ryan Weeda grew up in Kansas City, Missouri.  He received a B.S. In Engineering Physics from Westmont College in Santa Barbara.  While a student at Westmont he began doing freelance video work and quickly decided that a life working in the fast paced world of physics perhaps wasn't going to be the best fit for him.
