The Filmmakers

David Carey

David Carey — Director and Editor / "The Sheriff"

David has been a creative communicator all of his life.  He's a passionate guy.  For over 30 years David has worked at the art of persuasion and storytelling.  He started as an actor and eventually found his way to the other side of the lens as producer/director.  Through an extensive network of creative collaborators David creates dynamic, compelling media that moves and he makes it all happen with limited schedules and tight budgets.

This is what he loves to do.  It's in his blood.

He's tried other things (he was an interior designer in the 80s) but it always became a venue for "a new story" and a new way to connect with the hearts and minds of an audience.  He's got one simple goal: create effective media that moves hearts and minds, builds awareness, prosperity and fosters strong relationships.
Dennis Curley

Dennis Curley — Music and Additional Lyrics / "Jefferson"

His compositions include Love After Hours, Vampires! Horror!, U Betcha: The Making of a Minnesota Boy Band, Whistling Past the Graveyard, Pride and Plot of Pointlessness, and Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping.  His arrangements for Schoolhouse Rock Live! and Schoolhouse Rock Live Too! are published by MTI; the Love After Hours Original Cast CD is available here, as well as at the iTunes Store.
