Zack Gordon:

Director of Photography

When it's big, I call Zack. Zack and I hooked up on Out of the Shadows, he was director of photography, and we had a real energy together. That energy is still rolling. I never have to double check your shots for the artistic stuff, or the setup. I check your shots because I want to see 'em. I learn from your setups. You still look more at home behind a camera than anyone I know-

Special Thanks for absolutely making Out of the Shadows what it is. I firmly believe that you are clearly one of the biggest reasons we won the Hollywood International HD Festival. The pieces you did scene by scene are incredible. You helped us to make award winning art- Thanks

In memory of Robert Begell

You were bigger than life, my friend. We thank you for spending part of your last moments on earth with us, we are all better for knowing you. Thanks for the level of commitment you made to us. I wish you were still here, but we are all headed on the same path, so we will see you on the other side.

Pat Nowak

Of all of the valuable things I gained from the Black Swamp Film festival experience, you were the treasure. Your standard of excellence is inspiring, and your energy is infectious, but my favorite part of your personality is your honesty and personal integrity.

Chuy Delossantos

You put us on the track of our national distribution deal by stirring things up. It’s always a plus to have your energy on board, especially when things get rough. You have the most heart of all of us. It does not go unappreciated.

Jason Webber

Almost everything good that happened to us after winning the awards goes back to you. The articles you wrote about us early on and introduced us to WGTE in Toledo, where we got our first exposure on PBS. It’s great to be continuing together in the creative effort.

Darren LaShelle

Thanks for discovering “The Thunder Series” us and all of your positive energy. You have been instrumental in our growth. Your experience, guidance and advice have proven invaluable. The relationships we have found inside the PBS family and your viewership makes the whole effort worth it.

Our Man Alexis Burnett

North woods tracker and guide extraordinaire. The wildlife footage from Algonquin forest is outstanding. You are one of few guides that could have gotten us so close to the big game in the wild. We can’t wait for the next trip. You’re one of a kind and a brother forever.
