He would like to thank Matt and Caroline for giving him a chance and creating such a fantastic experience to have worked on with them.
Nazi Soldier: Mike Burnell, who portrays a nazi soldier in the film, has been acting longer than he would like to admit. He started out in theatre but had always been enamored with the mechanics of film making. When technology brought sound to film he found it to be a comfortable fit. He enjoys playing a wide range of roles. Each one offering a unique perspective. Although possessing a face tailor made for horror he enjoys comedy as well.
Sound Recorder: Alexandra Parral is a sound recordist born in San Diego, raised in Tecate, Mexico, living in Los Angeles. She graduated summa cum laude in Television, Film and New Media Production from San Diego State University. Alexandra has dedicated her career to meaningful independent films, documentaries, and interviews.

Composer: Originally from the Gulf Coast, Steve Garbade moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, where he studied Composition/Film Scoring. Steve played cello for the Berklee College of Music String Quartet while in attendance, but Steve is actually comfortable with any instrument that doesn’t require wind. Upon graduation, Steve moved to Los Angeles and began his career composing for numerous theater companies and playhouses. Now his focus is composing for motion picture. Transitioning to film six years ago, Steve has already composed for over twenty productions including web series, short film, and feature film. Telling stories through a series of sounds, not words, is what allows Steve to continue to develop original scores.
Cinematographer: Award-winning director William Wall has just begun to make his unique mark in cinema. Accolades include “Best Director”, “Best Editor” and “Best Sound Design” as well as “Best Film” honors for his debut feature film The Immortal Edward Lumley (2013) and short films Zero (2014) and The Wheeler of Oz (2010) from the LA Fear & Fantasy Film Festival, San Diego Film Awards, California Film Awards, Phoenix Comicon and Louisville Film Festival. Additionally, short film Android 413 (2010), directed and produced by William Wall and production house Metro City Films, was honored by San Diego Comic-Con International in 2011.
