Actor/Filmmaker 

 Garland Gunn 

Perhaps like you, at age 3 I fell in love with The Wizard of Oz. Soon after my bedroom became a museum of memorabilia. My family and friends were treated to the wicked witch's death scene over and over and over again! To this day I thank them for humoring me. From then on it was theater all the way. Somehow the idea that I had the ability to create my own world and bring others with me on that journey has always been satisfying to me. 

And now, after working in the film industry for over 10 years I'm ready to create my own material and become a more well rounded actor and filmmaker. Moreover, I love this genre because so many feel a childhood connection to sci-fi comedy. It was a more innocent time in our lives. I love fantasy and love to meet and work with people who love it too!

Paul Gibson, Jillian Teetsell, and Garland Gunn were previously seen together in the independent feature film  They Came from the Ether.

Paul Gibson https://www.mrpaulgibson.com 

Paul was born in Charlotte, North Carolina and his  passion for performing was unleashed as a child.  Kids would laugh at him eating corn with his buck teeth while whistling the Raiders Of The Lost Ark theme.  That fueled his drive for wanting to make people laugh and desire to become better at it. 

Over the last 15 years, he has studied Stanislavsky, Meisner, and Del Close's method of Improv.   He has learned from some of the comedy greats like Mo Collins (MAD TV) Ike Barinholz (MAD TV) and Kevin McDonald (Kids In The Hall).

In his spare time, Paul likes taking pictures, playing drums, traveling, and spending time with his family.

Jillian Teetsell https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6038583/ 

Jillian was born in Kingston, New York and moved to Florida shortly after where she lived as a young child.  At age 10 she moved to the mountains of Boone, North Carolina and has called NC home ever since.  From a young age,  Jillian loved to perform- sing, dance, act- anything in front of a camera or to make someone smile.  She performed in a number of dance competitions in high school and participated in every theater production possible.  In college she continued with classes in art & theater and also got her first experience in modeling and working behind the camera.

After college,  Jillian moved to Raleigh where she currently resides.  Over the last 10 years Jillian has worked with local directors and producers on a variety of films, commercials, and promotional shoots.  Though her “9-5” job currently keeps her busy and traveling the world, acting remains a passion and something she holds very dear; she works on projects whenever possible. 

In her spare time, when there happens to be any,  Jillian enjoys exercise and outdoor activities- hiking, running, bicycling- painting, dancing, and cooking.

Risks and challenges

There are many levels to the creative process of making a movie. Even on a 15-minute short film such as this. So far we have a small dedicated team of professionals who are willing and ready to jump any hurdles that come up. The most important thing is the interest and support of the community that's required to help blast the project into outer space!
