    Born in Chicago and raised in the Bay Area, Giovanni's love for cinematography started when he realized the true storytelling power of the moving image. Along with filmmaking, Giovanni is passionate about the outdoors and adventure sports: mountaineering, motorcycles, snowmobiles and snowboards are all part of his life. His focus now is capturing everything: a tricky hike up a peak or another day in the powder on the backside of a mountain. He hopes to turn his passion into a technical and creative career while surrounding himself with like-minded individuals.


    Focus: Acting and Dancing

Dancing and languages come easily to Kadi who is fluent in English, Hindi, Chadian, French, and Arabic and has a working understanding of Spanish.

    A portrait artist and a full-stack developer with sharp coding skills in Javascript technologies including Node.js, Angular, and React, Caesar cultivated his genius and made use of his time while incarcerated for over seven years. He pleaded innocent to the charges but was convicted at the age of 18 despite the lack of DNA and fingerprint evidence at the crime scene and proposed firearm. Instead of succumbing to the circumstances, Caesar decided to learn sign language and programming, participating successfully in the Bard College Prison Initiative. He is now a full-time software engineer in Brooklyn where he was born and raised.
