KevinHeadshotWeb.jpg

Kevin Glick, Director of Animation, attended the University of Iowa and California Institute of the Arts. He has always had the desire to move things around in small increments, and take photographs of the result. When he met Mark and Carlo, he was lead to believe that he would be joining the Overland Park High School cheer squad. He brought pom poms to his interview. He has worked on the feature films Coraline and Hell and Back, and over one hundred television shows and commercials. He is fairly sure that his wife is a famous celebrity. The rest of the team believes this is true… though mainly because Kevin announces it loudly at least once a week.

Post Production Coordinator

Garrett Vanderwielen


Post Production Coordinator

Garrett Vanderwielen, Post Production Coordinator, has been making films since the age of seven when he shot a Star Wars Fan Fiction piece on his parents’ VHS video camera, animated completely with action figures. Figuring that since he was already making films, he might as well make a career out of it, he earned a B.A. in Film from Cal State LA, and began interning at Extra Credit Studios. With an acumen for editing, he was soon coordinating post production on The Most Popular Girls in School, and now continues that work on Dr. Havoc’s Diary. Outside of the studio, Garrett directs comedy sketches for TeamZoo.com, and recently made his directorial debut with his short film, Partial Kind-of Maybe.
