Cass Vogel  is a Baltimore born, LA based director and writer. She studied Film Production at Emerson College in Boston where she directed several projects, including her Capstone film,  Half Shell,  and the web series  High, Hello . After moving to LA in 2017, she trained at Anthem Films, assisting on production of music videos for Lupe Fiasco, Beth Ditto, and more.

Alisyn Ghivizzani  grew up in the great, mosquito-ridden state of Florida—bless her heart—where she obtained a useless degree in painting and such from the University of Florida, a school with more alligators than art majors. After a brief stint of graphic designing from behind a very orange cubicle, she packed up and drove 3,000 miles in her tiny blue car to give college the good ol’ redo and earned an MFA in Film Production and Directing from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. Since then, Alisyn has taken to directing comedies, assistant directing directors who direct comedies, and producing anything that means she gets to travel. Most recently she produced the international feature documentary,  Waterschool , and the last two seasons of The  Amazing Race . Alisyn has more plants than friends, will have a different haircut every time you see her, and is jazzed to be apart of this project.
