Eddie B.

 photo_pamEddie brings an array of experience to the table in all industry aspects: producing, directing, writing, editing, videography, and lighting. He has success in creative design and planning roles, such as creative director, art director, casting director, and production manager. He’s excellent at transforming complex concepts into compelling and inspirational ideas easily grasped by a diverse viewing audience.

Eddie is an expert in his field, and I was delighted with the quality of the completed video. It looked as if it had been shot in a professional sound stage, when in fact it was filmed in a corner of a conference room at our office. I also want to commend Eddie for his refreshing down-to-earth friendliness and flexibility, which made it a genuine pleasure to work with him throughout the production process. You can trust Eddie to deliver great value and produce an excellent product.

Carol C.

CJ

 Photo of CJCJ is a life long creative, from her education at the American Academy of Art and early days as a popular comic actor in radio and TV commercials cast in NYC following the fabled Mad Man era, to her decade plus run as an in house voice talent and her daily tasks of commercial copy, stand alone features and synergy brainstorming as well as serving as the voice of the author for numerous NY Times best selling authors such as Patricia Cornwell, Lori Wilde, Margaret Maron and Janet Evanovich.

As the author of a number of produced stage shows, published essays, live spoken word collections and WGA registered screenplays. CJ brings experience, passion, a unique voice plus a wide ranging expertise in diverse disciplines to every assignment and opportunity to collaborate, contribute, or other wise facilitate a client’s success.

Carol (CJ) was first introduced to me after I read her genre bending comedy The Pollinators which I told her was "an Indie cult hit, waiting to happen”. Although the funding for that project fell through, I recognized a unique voice as a writer and a dedicated team player.

Since then, she has assisted with the writing for several projects at Dreamfly Productions, from guilty-pleasure reality television treatments to smart, family-friendly, sketch comedy writing, and she continues to show range, productivity and a flair for comedy and storytelling. A tireless creative, Carol has written several new screenplays and also an original stage musical — fully produced — all since we met.

Her writing deserves a larger audience, and I have every confidence she will make a lasting and worthy contribution to your writing and development program.

— Lisa Jenkins, Director and Executive Producer! Dreamfly Productions

We at Home Team Productions have known CJ for over thirty years. We worked together on her first video project, and have followed her stage shows throughout the years, participating in some of them with great pleasure; her craft was polished even early in her career, and her writing remains nimble, evocative, and thought-provoking. Oftentimes, it is also hilariously funny. I have had the privilege of seeing her most recent work, including MASTER STROKE and SIGMA DELTA DIE, and I believe her to be at the top of her game where screenplays are concerned. She has perception, passion, and perseverance, and her voice, as a woman over fifty, rich in life experience, exemplifies what is all too rarely seen on screen today.

I have enormous respect for CJ, and I know her scripts will speak for themselves. I recommend her highly.
