Jesse Keller is a writer, director, and teacher of filmmaking. After spending his first decade of adult life alternately working at a casino, acting on stage, attending Grossmont College and UCLA, and bumming around the world from Phnom Penh to Ouagadougou, he earned his MFA from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts.

He went on to write and direct the award-winning feature film THANE OF EAST COUNTY, which screened at film fests across the USA and is now streaming on Amazon Prime. Jesse’s short films include his recent reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft’s story THE MUSIC OF ERICH ZANN and the ultra-short GUN FINGERS, both of which were official selections at numerous film festivals.





Ian Tripp & Ryan Schafer were both born and raised in San Diego, California where they met in the sixth grade and immediately bonded over their mutual love for cinema. Proceeding to make comedy videos in high school, they then graduated to making self-proclaimed “serious attempts” at making movies. Many years later, the duo started their own film production company and directed their first feature film together; ‘Everybody Dies by the End’.
