Long the horror and sci-fi movie buff, Cary Hill has spent years in the genres writing, watching, and making short films. Hill graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2004 with degrees in Film and History, and served two years as the president of the University’s Film Club. His work has included stints in locally-shot films, including 10th and Wolf, and local TV commercials and ad campaigns. His credits also include work in music videos, most recently the video for “Bruiser,” by Seattle band Attack With Care.
Nathan W. Fullerton has been creating short films since both he and VHS tapes were young. He spent the first 10 years of his adult career creating unique interactive works that pushed the edge of what was technologically possible with video on computers. His credits include nationwide and international projects in academia, industry, and the arts as well as “meat and potatoes” media production for major corporate clients. His work has been exhibited at places like SIGGRAPH, Priz Arz Electronica, The Israel Museum, and the Carnegie Science Center.
Multi-talented artist Arvin Clay is among Pittsburgh’s locally renowned make up and special effects artists who has worked in Los Angeles and New York before landing in the Iron City. His credits include a multitude of independent horror films, music videos, and low budget projects, including J.R. Bookwalter’s Ozone and Skinned Alive.
Arvin was credited with helping to push the world of special effects makeup into the 21st century by creating replicants.org- a now woefully defunct website on the use of silicone for fine arts and special effects use. His current endeavor is the wildly successful Pittsburgh theater piece “Evenings in Quarantine: The Zombie Opera,” which has begun its second run in the city.

A composer/performer/costumer, Liz Rishel is no stranger to film or stage and likes to push the envelope of expectations. With a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, Liz performs regularly and sews creatively. She was a freelance set seamstress/wardrobe intern on the movie On the Inside (aka: In Northwood), and assisted with wigs and makeup for Undercroft Opera's Marriage of Figaro. Her largest costuming endeavor was in the production of character and special effects costumes and wigs for the hybrid film-stage opera which she co-created entitled Evenings in Quarantine: The Zombie Opera, now gearing up for its third run.
