Tim Karau

Assistant Camera / Gaffer

The man, the myth, the legend. No one knows the back end of production as well as Tim. I am (Clive Tollman) writing this for Tim because he‘s so freaking humble and would never admit to how talented and knowledgeable he is. As he would say, it’s a thing of beauty.


John Brugmann

Creative Director

John brings years of experience as a video editor, motion graphics & title designer, sound mixer, and script writer. He’s a jack of all trades.
