KIMBER and KRISTIN both have a lot of fancy degrees from fancy schools that mostly enable them to sit in front of a computer a lot.

Except when they are dancing, which is much more fun.

They both have a deep and abiding love for science fiction and historical costumes.

She’s a native of Southern California and moved to the North to pursue her dreams of living a bohemian life away from the smog of L.A. She’s been acting since the fifth grade and made it her major in college where she also obtained some ‘behind the scene’ skills. When Sara isn’t acting she also enjoys writing novels, taking pictures, and randomly busting out her ballroom moves in malls and supermarkets.



MIKE FATUM is a director, writer, ediMiketor and DP in San Francisco. He has directed around twenty short films over the last five years, including the super hero dramedy High Caliber and the sci-fi action film Novacorp. He has always had an interest in filming the weird, crazy and fantastic, and has documented or made films about just about anything you can think about at this point. No, seriously, he made a film about a sock puppet once. We’re not kidding. His films have played at the Pingree Film Festival and the Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival. One day he hopes to have a little house in the suburbs right next to a giant film studio, so that he can make all of his movies without ever getting out of his pajamas.
