RYLAN RAFFERTY Writer | Director Rylan Rafferty loves horror and comedy–even more when combined. She’s a director and writer; and has edited shows for Disney, Showtime, TBS, and TruTV and assisted on projects for Netflix, IFC, and Adult Swim. She was nominated for an LA Area Emmy Award for Best Informational Series as a Segment Producer. A short film that she wrote/directed/produced, a comedy/horror titled “The Happy Go-Lucky Sunshine Twins,” screened at the Denver Film Festival. She directed four films for the 48 Hour Film Project, winning a Best Writing award. She’s won 5 screenplay awards including finalist at the Screencraft Comedy Competition and Fresh Voices. Rylan currently lassos the humors and horrors of Los Angeles life into her creative projects–between laser pointer time and kibbles with her two athletic kitties.
BRENDAN WALSH Producer | Editor Brendan has worked in cutting rooms for nearly 20 years and now edits comedy features and television. His latest credits include Between Two Ferns: The Movie, Adult Swim’s female-led series Three Busy Debras, and is currently a dialogue editor for Season 5 of Big Mouth. He grew up watching He-Man with a bowl of no-sugar rice puffs, and now enjoys shows that aren’t quite so misogynistic—while still eating those bland cereals. Brendan’s first family cat, Micro, was adopted to prevent his older sister from strangling him to death as a baby. He’s lived with cats ever since (for protection). He believes in the equal value of all sentient beings and is a committed animal rights activist.
