Bethe H. Gordon (writer, director, producer)
Moving to Los Angeles to attend film school was the last thing on Bethe's mind while growing up on the east coast of Long Island. A serious student in the sciences, she received her Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Barnard College at Columbia University. PhDs, MDs and JDs in her family, she realized that the straight academic path would not suit her anymore after she completed her first computer animated short, THE WINK, while at university. After much contemplation, she ended her two and a half year career as a computer consultant to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Southern California. She ended her amazing time at USC with her master's Thesis, CHILD INVISIBLE. She has never imagined being so in love and dedicated to such an exciting and new career.

Bonnie hopes to be able to carry on balancing her time between both sides of the pond, while continuing to balance the business and pleasure of filmmaking.

SEAN SCHAFER HENNESSY (Composer)
Film composer and trumpeter Sean Hennessy is one of America's most gifted composer/instrumentalists. Since winning major competitions since his twelfth year, he remains a brilliant protégé of the renowned Wynton Marsalis. Beginning his trumpet studies at age ten, Sean made his concerto debut three years later with the Colorado Symphony. Since that date he has been engaged by symphonies throughout the country to perform. Sean has performed a solo recital at Carnegie Hall, appeared as a guest soloist at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and moved audiences with his appearance on the Public Radio International's show "From the Top". He is currently composing soundtracks for all genres. As a trumpet soloist of deep essence, much of his current music for film contains beautiful heartfelt melodies, light jesting humor in comedy, riveting/anticipating suspense in his dramas, as well as both spirited and touching jazz in his jazz scores. His orchestrations are rich, powerful, and dramatic. Continuing to conduct and perform in his own works, Sean touches his audience both through his film music compositions and his performances, with unique musicality and soul.
