JORDAN DOWNEY

Writer/ Director - imdb link

Jordan is a writer and director from Ohio, and no stranger to the horror community. He worked as an intern under Wes Craven while in college at Loyola Marymount University where he also pinpointed then unknown actors Bella Thorne and Anna Diop for roles in his student films.

 

He broke onto the scene with his first feature, the college-made cult horror film ThanksKilling, marking the first collaboration with longtime writing and producing partner Kevin Stewart. In the years since, his shorts Techno Western and Critters: Bounty Hunter earned praise amongst fans and genre outlets alike, but it was his latest feature The Head Hunter which elevated the filmmaker to new heights.

 

The medieval horror film premiered at Sitges, going on to win multiple awards on the festival circuit including Best Overall Feature and multiple Best Actor awards for the film’s breakout star Christopher Rygh, including at the acclaimed Fantasporto International Film Festival where previous winners include Mads Mikkelsen and Willem Dafoe. The Head Hunter opened as the #1 horror film and holds a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes where critics praised its minimalist storytelling.

 

Whether it’s speaking with horror crowds at festivals, or through fan favorite podcasts like Shock Waves or The Movie Crypt, the filmmaker’s sights have never wavered from his childhood love for fantasy and things that go bump in the night. "I can only imagine the staggering vision Jordan Downey and his team will concoct next” says Rue Morgue Magazine. 

Jordan is repped by Peter Heller of Heller Highwater.

PAVEL "PASHA" BOZHKOV

Writer/ Producer - imdb link

Pavel Bozhkov always had a dream − to become a filmmaker. After quitting his successful career as a stock broker, Bozhkov moved to Los Angeles and studied at USC's School of Cinematic Arts and the New York Film Academy, where he wrote and directed a range of award-winning short films.

 

After graduating with honors, Bozhkov got hired by Exclusive Media Group established by veteran producers Guy East and Nigel Sinclair. While there, he worked on a number of hit features including The Woman in Black, Ides of March, End of Watch, and Rush to name a few.

 

In 2012, Bozhkov joined Bazelevs − a production company established by visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, overseeing the “dark genre” slate. He worked on all the company's major releases, including the successful European franchise Yolki as well as one of the highest-grossing Russian movies in China, He Is A Dragon.

 

Bozhkov recently produced Unfriended: Dark Web, Profile, which received the Panorama Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, and Sony's breakout hit Searching that grossed over $75 million worldwide on a $1M budget.

 

Bozhkov is currently working on a number of genre projects including the feature version of a highly successful horror short Don’t Peek.

KEVIN STEWART

Writer/ Cinematographer - imdb link

Born in Paris and raised in Portugal until the age of 17, Kevin’s early fascination with cinema brought him to Los Angeles where he graduated from the School of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University. It was there he first paired his love for storytelling with an extreme proficiency in the technical side of filmmaking to trailblaze a unique path as writer, producer, and cinematographer.

 

His first feature with collaborator Jordan Downey, ThanksKilling, was a masterclass in independent filmmaking that has carved its place in cult history. In the years after film school, he became one of Funny or Die’s primary shooters, working with dozens of top actors including Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, and Steve Carell. Narrative and commercial DP work for brands such as Walgreens, Ford, and Starbucks led to bigger opportunities like shooting the Rosa Parks biopic Behind the Movement for TV One and Blumhouse’s Unfriended: Dark Web.

 

His work as a cinematographer always ran parallel to his own films and screenplays culminating in The Head Hunter, which once again paired he and Downey for another indie marvel. The film won a total of 7 awards on the festival circuit, including Best Cinematography for Stewart and was a showcase for the alignment of characters, language, lenses, and cameras all working to achieve the same goal.

 

In recent years, Kevin has become a strong advocate for the technological advances in virtual production and his recent experimental short film Nemosyne - created and virtually shot entirely in Unreal Engine - won the MacInnes Studios Real-Time Shorts Challenge.

 

Kevin’s unique background as a writer and producer who deeply understands visual effects and lighting allows him to craft stories in more ways than one.
