Favorite TV Show: Breaking Bad

Favorite Movie: Pulp Fiction

Memorable Quote: “If you ever see a bird on its side, it’s dead.” – Gavin Free

On a warm summer day in June of 1996, Seth emerged from the shell of a speckled egg that was resting atop a fig tree in the mountainous region of South Carolina. As a Millennial, he felt entitled to a job at Genesis Studios. He spent a few months as an intern cleaning toilets and hiding bodies, before he finally was promoted to Chief Chump. He now spends his days eagerly awaiting the return of the McRib and making stupid bets that could affect his physical appearance forever.

Eric Sneider

Eric Sneider

Animation / Motion Graphics

Favorite TV Show: Pinky and the Brain

Favorite Movie: Die Hard

Memorable Quote: “The knack of flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.” – Douglas Adams

Eric Sneider is a world champion walking gum chewer, having successfully walked and chewed gum at the same time nearly his entire life with only a single career instance of choking to death on his gum. Luckily, he was resuscitated by paramedics and experienced only slight brain damage which limited him to a degree and career in art. Eric is still an avid adrenaline junkie, risking immense personal peril with his preferred Grape Bubblelicious almost daily, and enjoys testing and expanding his mind through the power of Hooked on Phonics.

Shae Winston

Shae Winston

Producer / Editor

Favorite TV Show: Breaking Bad

Favorite Movie: Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift

Memorable Quote: “Don’t forget to drink your Ovaltine.”

After a successful career in volcano relocation, Shae Winston was tracked down by time travelers that wanted him to relocate Mount Vesuvius away from Pompeii. After the group became lost on the Oregon Trail, the time travelers and crew eventually died from snake bites, armadillo maulings and yellow peep overdoses. Shae continued alone, epicly. In the desert one morning after fighting several armadillos and four-legged tunas with his bare hands, he decided to become a Cinematographer to show and recreate what he has seen in his adventures, vowing to eventually complete the move of Mount Vesuvius with the time traveling devices the strange men left behind.

Laurie Nicholson

Laurie Nicholson

Production Manager

Favorite TV Show: Veronica Mars

Favorite Movie: Psycho

Memorable Quote: “…I’m Sorry Wendy, but I don’t trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn’t die.” – Mr. Garrison, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Originating from Jupiter, Laurie Nicholson is the most-diminutive of the Genesisarians. She grew little, but got older in the boondocks of Winchestertonfieldville in the distant BFE province of Essos. At the age of π, Laurie perfected the oft-disdained skill of wayfinding gondolas using the art of emphatic gesturing. She also holds a dual-doctorate in the fields of Motivational Vituperation and Self-Sustaining Sarcasm. Her favorite foods are bacon and new car smell. Laurie is immensely kind to (some) children, animals, approximately 3.6 non-relatives and the occasional simpleton. She enjoys Disney and breathing, in that order. Laurie hopes to one day lift an immense quadruped over her head.

John Collins

John Collins

VP / Production Director

Favorite TV Show: The Simpsons & Game of Thrones

Favorite Movie: Bubba Ho-Tep

Memorable Quote: “You’ll have to speak up, I’m wearing a towel.” – Homer Simpson

Hailing from a bleak hamlet called JamesBrownTown, John wasn’t so much born as he was willed into existence.  JamesBrownTown had a populace of people lawfully denied the expression of dance; and through the collective hopes of those dreary denizens…John materialized, somersaulted and Macarena-ed cheer into that proletariat.  But it wasn’t enough.  One township wasn’t enough.  There was too much not-dancing in the world for John to rest. So began his “danceabout.”  He Hokey Pokeyed in Hungary; did the Bump in Belize; Single Ladies-ed in Swaziland.  

His was the gyration felt around the world.  But, Electric Slides don’t last forever.  Sometimes something as small as a discarded banana can make the Stanky Leg…two stanky legs.  While he can still whip his hair, the promenade is done. Some say if you’re ever on the dance floor; and you listen really closely, you can hear his platform shoes perfectly keeping rhythm to the syncopation of today’s popular music.  
Others say this is all hogwash. I say: I’ve seen his “just-in-case” Clogs in the floorboard of his Vista Cruiser.

Cliff Springs

Cliff Springs

CEO

Favorite TV Show: The Simpsons

Favorite Movie: Raiders of the Lost Ark

Memorable Quote: “This looks like a job for Golden Helmet!” (Burt Reynolds in Hooper)

 

Cliff Springs was born to immigrant parents from the armoires of Narnia. At the age of 6, he grew his first beard, securing him a recurring role as Sherlock Holmes on PBS. His instant fame led him to travel the world searching for innovative methods of harvesting soy. It was there in the annals of the Byzantine morgue that he discovered his true calling: shadow puppet master. To this day, he enjoys soothing bovine beasts with the serene sounds of the harmonica.

He also likes the Gamecocks.
