Cris Johnson / (Ennui de Malpersonne)

Cris was raised in Orange County, lived in Hawaii and finally settled down in Ventura. She has a Bachelor’s degree in art and Master’s degree in public administration. Finding that her art habit was not going to feed the kids and keep her in necessary doodads, Cris works in the real world and dreams of being somewhere else.

In spite of the artistic bent she has an irrational talent for organization that keeps her employable. She spent several years as a director in a hotel management company and currently as a public servant where she is up close and personal with the bureaucratic process. 

Outside of real world obligations, Cris completed the UCLA Professional Screenwriting program, has written several snarky screenplays, paints and draws on whatever she can get her hot little hands on, writes books, edits PETV’s “All About Books” program and still has time to annoy her family.

Later in life Nick concentrated on wines & spirits, with the emphasis on wines, retiring from a major mover in Europe in 2010. In the past few years he has roamed the UK & Western Europe following music makers both new & old, further enabling his photographic opportunities & satisfying his love of travel, too.

 Lindsey Hitt / (Kelly Munch)
Recent victim of the charms of a deeper southern California this brunette beauty is from a large Irish-Catholic Santa Barbara based heritage. Lindsey is also ethnically part Native American. That wild fact is yet to be confirmed since her bastard father was adopted from an indian reservation in Oklahoma. With such a sassy personality who is going to second guess! 
This 30-something graduate student in the field of healing arts moved to Ventura in the spring of 2014. She has a brother and sister-law who are both graduates of the popular Brooks College with two sons and a daughter en route from heaven. Her brother is destined to direct movies and has always encouraged her to pursue acting, his motto is "passion over profit." Family is a valuable part of her tribe as are all the friends she meets along her journey. She believes change is a constant and so is the love for all things.
With a wide variety of interests from outdoor activities to tailoring her own clothes Lindsey found her way into stand-up comedy through the variety of Ventura, California open mics. The Sandbox Coffeehouse, Hong Kong Inn, and Ventura Harbor Greenroom have all heard the politically advanced rants of this newfound talent. Captured now at CAPs public broadcasting, Lindsey hopes to continue on the path of entertainment. One of her big dreams is a show of her own discussing all different forms of medicine. Best wishes to this shooting star and welcome to the show!
Lady Jan Faulkner / (Melody Finch)   

Jan started dancing at age three, because she "just had so much energy." She spent decades dancing, singing in club bands, doing musical theater as actress/singer/dancer/choreographer and, of course, teaching dance and choir and moving to California along the way. 

Jan spent six months singing in Japan in 1980; took two choir tours which included London, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Israel  and Russia; and took a Quintet  tour of Macedonia in the 90's.

She picked up a little AA in Drama in Texas, and an AS in Interior Design from Moorpark in 2004.  Then she veered into the world of fine art, and works in Collage, Mixed Media, and fiber crafts.

Denis Labrie / (Allen Asfault)
Screenwriter. Songwriter. 
Denis has lived and worked all over the world but found his true calling in 1990’s Hollywood doing whatever it took to work in films. He toiled on many screenplays, some optioned, none produced. In a fit of stupidity he produced a film “Poor Mrs. Sobel” with his own money.
During this time he had two children fourteen months apart and went bankrupt! He went right out and got a real job. Now that Denis got that out of his system he is again happily writing unproduced screenplays, comic books and songs.
When not idling away his life writing, Denis is active in the arts, Environmental movements and loves body surfing.

Cathy Peterson
Editor. Publisher. Screenwriter.
Being creative on many levels, I have a good eye for what works and what will be successful. Whenever I'm doing anything artistic in nature I use my whole self, and that is bliss.
As an editor I will tear your work to shreds. Not because the story is bad, but because you aren't telling it well. If you expect investors to spend MILLIONS on something you've written, it better be ENTERTAINING. Doesn't matter if you're Aaron Sorkin or Ned Nobody. When your "I've got a great story" script reads like a macro-economics textbook, don't be surprised no one is interested.
A good story that reads well get's noticed. A great story that reads well get's made. Period. Great stories find a way. CP
