Crew Bios

Renee Rodgers (Executive Producer): Previous credits include the feature, “The Morning Show,” as well as several shorts. She is a principal in Shallow Beach Films and is intimately involved with every project from its conception. Her special focus is on script development and maintaining a broad view toward production opportunities, believing that the company should produce works in many genres, reflecting the variety of stories available in the Greater Miami area.

Andrew Delaplaine (Director/Writer) is currently developing his next 3 features: a political thriller about an attempt to assassinate the president on a visit to Miami; a romantic comedy involving a Cuban woman married to a WASP-y American man who's trying to learn Spanish to “fit in” with her family; and a “suspense comedy” about the bumbling chief of the Milk Crate Recovery Unit of the Greater Miami Milk, Butter, Sour Cream & Cheese Conglomerate. Several other projects are in development, and he will move into production on the first one that's funded. In the past, he's owned a highly successful restaurant on South Beach (Scratch), opened a legendary nightclub (the Warsaw Ballroom), founded the longest-running newspaper on South Beach (The Wire), as well opened a used book store to rid himself of his personal library of 10,000 books (Bombay Books), named after the gin, not the town.

Sherman Johnson (Director of Photography): Sherman is a much-in-demand cinematographer and works chiefly in his hometown of Atlanta and his current home in Miami Beach . But he travels extensively shooting in a wide variety of genres, from music videos, commercials to feature films.

Brooks Reid (Editor): Brooks Reid started in post production as a 3-D animator and design artist for film and video. In the early 80's he began to combine his artist background with computer graphics on early Atari and Amiga computers, creating 2-D animation for bumpers and logos for local South Florida TV stations and production companies. As computer hardware progressed, Brooks became immersed in high end Mac digital audio and video workstations. And with the advent of applications such as Photoshop, Lightwave and After Effect Brooks moved into more intense 3-D animation and motion graphics and formed his own company- Air Time Design. As a producer, DP, sound designer and editor, he has created 100's of hours of broadcast programming and film productions including music videos, short and feature films, animation, television commercials, documentaries and marketing/promotional videos. He also is in demand as a location sound mixer/recordist and cameraman. He recently worked with TLC for "Miami Ink", "Make Room For Baby", "In A Fix", MTV for "Road To Menudo". His creative background as a professional musician, singer/songwriter and artist combined with his eye for design and technical experience in computers, film and video has given him a 360 degree perspective on production and post production.
