PAUL NANDZIK

PRESIDENT & FOUNDER

IMDb  |  Digital Portfolio

Paul first fell in love with filmmaking when he casually accepted a friend’s invitation to have a death scene in a feature film in 2011.  Since catching the bug, Paul has focused on working as a stunt professional, writer, producer, and director.  He also brings to bear a background as a film instructor, martial arts instructor, collegiate English language tutor, a published author, and a journalist.

Furthermore, he has had the honor of being a guest panelist at the 2017 3 Rivers Screenwriters Conference, and has won multiple awards for his work, including Best Fight Choreography, Audience Choice, Award of Merit, Wildcard, and placing within the top three films at various festivals and competitions.

With more than 120 credits to his name, including performing stunts for Showtime’s 2018 miniseries Escape at Dannemora and CBS’ exclusive streaming series One Dollar, Paul has spent more than seven years both honing and expanding his skills.  His formal training includes earning a B.A. in English at SUNY College at Fredonia, and training at the International Stunt School as well as the Virginia Beach Bash Stage and Screen Combat Workshop.

Blessed with the ability to need only a small amount of sleep, Paul still makes time to raise his daughter with his beautiful wife, to walk the dog even in cold weather, and to scoop the kitties’ poop no matter how stinky it is.

 

 


MISHA NANDZIK

VICE PRESIDENT & CO-FOUNDER

IMDb

Misha has always had a passion for the dramatic arts, from acting on stage (where she was known for her scream), to becoming president of the Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honorary Society at Glenville State College, where she graduated with a B.A. in English, to being a member of the West Virginia Filmmakers Guild, to most recently pursuing Film Technician certification at the Community College of Allegheny County.

Having worked both in front of and behind the camera has provided Misha with insight into seeing the bigger picture and addressing the needs of any given project, from directing to producing to wardrobe to editing.

In her spare time (haha!), Misha raises her wonderful daughter, loves on all the house critters (including her husband), frequently makes the kitchen look like a war zone, and occasionally wonders if it’s just coincidence that she hails from a town called Looneyville (yes, that’s really the name).
