Shiva Rodriguez was practically raised in the theatre with both her parents in the live entertainment business. While no stranger to being on stage, she developed an interest in special effects and makeup at an early age and took every opportunity she could to break open her makeup kit.
Throughout most of her childhood, she would study horror films and then recreate the makeups and effects on family and friends.
D. Duckie Rodriguez always knew what he wanted to be in life; world-renowned astrophysicist Carl Sagan. Unfortunately, there already was a world-renowned astrophysicist Carl Sagan, so his fallback was to become a superhero. He discovered that magic and psychic powers did not actually exist, so he learned stage magic and performed his first live act at 9 years of age.
He incorporated electronics and computer science into his act at 14. Upon graduation from high school, he became a nuclear engineer with the United States Navy. He discovered that being on a nuclear-powered ship just wasn’t cool enough and that he wanted to fly hydrofoils and hovercraft, which required that he cross-rate at least twice… so he learned deck engineering and signalman.
Jennifer Nicole Stang was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has lived in England, Canada, the U.S., and Spain. Jennifer founded her film production company, Round Table Pictures (Formerly Heart Anchor Productions), with her brother, Emmett, in 2011.
With her company, Jennifer has directed award-winning music videos and short films and has produced videos for clients such as Sotheby’s International, USC, and Jamie Nichols for Celebrate Dance, which is one of the “top 5 dance shows” in Los Angeles.
Her short film, El Lago (The Lake) has received various awards, including Best Fantasy Film at the Mexico International Film Festival, and 1st place at the Honolulu Film Awards. El Lago is also featured on GAIA TV and Cinemakers. Jennifer directed Livvy Stubenrauch (young Anna from Disney’s Oscar-winning film, Frozen), in her short film Les Nuages (The Clouds), which is part of The Dream Series on YouTube.
