STUDIO MGR/FACTOTUM (it's a real word look it up)
Nathan Wheeler is a graduate of Shawnee State University where he wrote his own curriculum to help develop a course for theater and film. He also worked as the theater director's assistant, where he also helped to teach acting, as well as performing in/directing many productions. He has also performed Off-Broadway and has had roles in several feature films (not to mention writing a few screenplays as well). At CNS he is a jack of all trades where, as he puts it, "it would be easier to tell you what I don't do."
Interns by Which All Others Will Be Measured...
is a graduating senior at Emerald School of Excellence. Since interning at CNS, Jissel has gained experience both in front of and behind the camera. This college-bound intern is a tremendous asset to Creative Network, and we all look forward to seeing what she accomplishes in the future!
(Canine Executive Officers)
This self-proclaimed "Home-School Stallion"
has been a CNS staple since he first walked through the doors. Stealing every scene he is in on camera, he is also quite proficient behind the scenes as well, and is currently working on his own pet project- a 'Doctor Who' fan film. Creative Network eagerly awaits watching this young talent dominate the Academy Awards someday as he continues his path in the entertainment industry.
Director of Public Relations
The first face you're likely to see upon entering CNS, Fonzo welcomes guests with a "hearty" hello. Not one to shy away from a meeting, he'll be sure to make your visit a memorable one. If he offers you a seat you should feel honored and move fast before he decides to keep it for himself.
On-Set Affairs/Talent Coordinator
From the moment you hear "action" till the director yells "CUT", you can rest assured if there are any issues to be handled on set Skipper is nearby with the solution (usually at the talent's feet). Not at all camera shy, he's been known to step in front of the camera if and when necessary.
Her boundless energy makes Jenny a no-brainer
for activities director here at CNS. Her creativity
makes sure there's never a dull moment, filling those awkward silences with even more awkward games of fetch or tag.
Asst. Writer/Creative Director
With unparalleled skill, Daphne could work a poo joke into a Shakespeare play and make it work. Her uncanny knack for keeping our other writers honest and overseeing everything they do (usually with her head on the keyboard) is what makes her a valued asset to CNS.
