First Name Kate
Last Name Alden
Headshot
Your Film Roles Acting, Director, Television, Feature Films
Bio

Kate Alden is currently an (unintentionally) nomadic filmmaker who has lived and worked across the US, with concentrated stints in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, and Boston. She graduated from Chapman University (after transferring from Emerson College) with a degree in Theater Performance and a minor in Film Production.

Kate’s creative spark (and deadpan wit) is shaped from her lived experiences as the kid of divorced creatives (a visual artist/designer and an acoustical engineer/musician) and forging an identity and perseverance out of childhood adversity.

Kate started in this industry as an actor, appearing on a multitude of features, commercials and television shows, including ‘Twin Peaks,’ ‘Sorry for your Loss,’ and ‘The Librarians.’ About 10 years ago, she began concentrating on production and dove headfirst into the entire process. She has worked primarily as a 1st Assistant Director for the past 6 years, helming movies for Paramount, Vertical Entertainment, Buffalo 8, and Blumhouse, and working with the talents of Ashley Judd, Keith Carradine, Eiza Gonzalez, Rosanna Arquette, Steve Coulter, Barbara Rosenblat, and many others. She helped develop and was the creative producer on the 2018 short ‘Relationship Deli’ which amassed over 10 million views and was featured on Funny or Die and in the New York Times. Since reviving her focus on directing (with a slight ambition jump from the plays and films she directed with her friends as a teenager), she has created several music videos (for indie darlings Therese Curatolo and Alyssa Suede), a handful of dark comedy shorts and is in development on two features and a documentary based on true stories.

Bio

My name is Emerson Cole, a graduate of Columbia College Chicago. I have experience in many types of production mediums, including but not limited to film, TV, theatre, live events, industrials, and documentary work in various positions. I have been working steadily since graduation and want to continue doing so.

I have been working as a sound mixer since 2018 and have been growing my knowledge since. I really started to build out my sound resume in 2021 with the various types of jobs I was contracted for. I was sound mixer on a tier 1b feature film and worked with a boom operator. I recorded audio for interviews of celebrity artists for Amazon Music Rotation at Dreamville Festival, an indie TV show called Upside Brown where I controlled up to eight different wireless tracks and sometimes duel boom with my operator and myself, Chicago Marathon on the B camera team for a commercial for Abbott where I walked about 10 miles with my kit while capturing different subjects and ambient sound, and a documentary show on LG TVs called The Rivalries where I did interviews, Verite style, and boomed an entire lacrosse game for three and a half hours.

For a while, I have been growing my sound package. I currently am running a Sound Devices Mix Pre 10 ii, Schoeps CMIT 5U, two Lectrosonics LT/LR with Cos11d lavs, Røde NTG 3, and Røde Wireless Go II transmitters and receiver with Countryman B3 lavs. I own a Comtek transmitter and three receivers, two Denecke JB-1 Timecode boxes and Denecke TS-C timecode slate. I also have a relationship with Cinespace’s Second City Sound to rent from as well as other local rental houses if needed to rent.

Given my drive to learn, I want to make your project better by having such dedication to doing better. With my quick technical knowledge, I will be able to accomplish any task given to me.

Growing up in Texas he had an affinity for the sport of baseball and dreamed of one day playing for the Houston Astros (Sans using cameras to help his career.) When his body didn’t grow up with his dreams, he moved to the performing arts where muscles aren’t necessary.
 
Joe went to Marquette University and received the Chris Farley Scholarship for using humor in a positive manner. In his sophomore year he performed at the Kennedy Center in “Quid Pro Quo” which won the John Cauble award as well as the Jean Kennedy Smith award.
 
Joe performed in numerous productions while at Marquette including “Waiting For Godot” “The Odd Couple” and his self-written play “Programs” about the life of five sketch/improv comedians loosely based on the Second City. 
 
Credits include Chicago Med and understudy roles at the Goodman Theater and Northlight Theater. 
 
He also is an accomplished stand-up performing regularly at Chicago Laugh Factory, Zanies, Comedy Bar and the Improv Schaumburg. Joe has performed in the TBS Just For Laughs Fest, the Boston Comedy Fest, and was a finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award. 
 
Most recently his comedy album “Ugly” debuted at #1 on iTunes. It can be streamed on Spotify, Amazon, Apple and his special of the same name can be watched on Youtube.

Bio

Josh McCausland’s work approaches visual reality from its own unique angle.

As both a videographer and graphic designer, Josh is comfortable reconciling the real with the imagined, and it shows in what he creates. His work is refreshing, and exhibits a cleanliness that is never too removed from humanity.

Healing plays a large part in creation for Josh as “an outward expression for internal struggles.” Art is his way of continuing to exist “as a child in the living room sketching on the floor, with no restrictions and no worries.”

It is this feeling of freedom that Josh’s work truly captures, allowing everyone who interacts with it a much-needed moment of peace in its simple beauty and effortless elegance.

In his pursuits, Josh has completed a BFA at Cumberland University with a major in Entertainment Design and a minor in film studies. He developed his own film company, iQ Flicks during college and now maintains his small business while working full-time for Relativity creating in house video work.
