Richard Schenkman directs the film with style and vision


(Director/Writer/Producer), a New York native, is an experienced writer/director who started his professional career creating distinctive and award-winning "promos", network ID's, and documentary programs for MTV: Music Television. In 1989 he directed the short film OVERNIGHT SUCCESS, which premiered in the prestigious American Film Institute LA Film Festival, won several festival awards, and played nationally on The Movie Channel, Showtime and A&E. Schenkman then began his feature film career as the director/writer/producer of the critically acclaimed film, THE POMPATUS OF LOVE, which he created with partner, Jon Cryer; and which garnered several festival awards including Best Comedy Worldfest - Charleston, S.C. and Best Independent Worldfest - Houston, TX. He also directed OCTOBER 22, starring Amanda Plummer, Ernie Hudson, and Michael Pare and A DIVA'S CHRISTMAS CAROL with Vanessa Williams.

Adam Beckman's cinematography created the distinctive look of the film

He has lensed videos such as; No Doubt's "I'm just A Girl" Rancid's "Time Bomb", Tony Toni Tone's "Leavin", Ice Cube's "Wicked", and Naughty By Nature's "Everything's Gonna Be Alright". He was nominated for Best Cinematography at the MTV Music Video Awards for his work on Green Day's "Basketcase". Adam also shot the highly successful MTV's THE REAL WORLD: SAN FRANCISCO.

Midge Ure composed the electrifying score
