During his 11-year stint at Evolution, Andrew began managing high profile clients such as horror/fantasy legend Clive Barker, and filmmaker Darren Bousman whose collective worldwide film grosses are nearing half of a billion dollars.

Misha Green does not agree with our 32nd president. She believes "There is more to fear than fear itself." She knows there are monsters that go bump in the night, and that most of them have human faces. Her psychological thriller "Sunflower" made the 2008 Blacklist, and is being produced by Red Hour Films. And she has since split her time between planning wilderness survival treks in Alaska, and writing on TV shows. She has been staffed on HEROES, SONS OF ANARCHY & SPARTACUS. She is currently working on Syfy's "Helix."
Exciting newcomer Mickey Keating wrote and directed RITUAL, a retro style horror film that has been picked up by After Dark Films and Lionsgate, to be released soon! He currenlty works at Blumhouse Productions (producer of Paranormal Activity, Sinister, and Insidious).
Having cut his teeth as a studio screenwriter, Drew Daywalt began his career working with such luminaries as Tony Scott, Quentin Tarrantino & Lawrence Bender, Bret Ratner and Jerry Bruckheimer.
