Working with Josh and Kenny is unexplainable. They are the most understanding people. Being able to see the passion/love that they have for filmmaking in person is absolutely amazing. They are willing to cut loose and have fun when needed but they also know when it's time to be serious. They are willing to work with you and do whatever makes you comfortable. They are two of the most amazing people I have ever met. For me it was kind of challenging at first I wasn't able to channel my inner Jackie, because she was a complete opposite person of who I really am but I ended up getting used to it. - Mariah Brown - Jackie Blue in Honeyspider

To learn more about Joshua read our article about him here:
Joshua Sheik began writing stories at a young age and by the time that he was 10 he had directed his first play/movie called Murder on Saratoga Street which he followed up with six sequels.
After graduating high school, he attended West Point military school . From there he was commissioned as an Army Aviation Officer, became a rated helicopter pilot, was deployed twice to Iraq, and made films for his troops. During this time, he learned about being responsible for others and leadership skills. Which he says, is "one of the most important pillars of being a director." He feels that "the greatest directors are not only artists, but they are also grounded leaders".
Also, she made a film on the subject of using technology to aid foreign students in communicating when coming to America. It was chosen to be screened at the White House where she, along with her mother and the lead actress in Hello From Malaysia, Aiman Marzio, met with such notable people as Bill Nye, Kal Penn, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and the president himself.
"An unassuming reader picks up a killer's autobiography and is transferred to her execution. Thinking this bizarre episode was a waking dream, the reader attempts to check out of the store where the book was purchased only to find the killer controls the shop and is taking the reader hostage. The two travel through time in order to change a series of events until the reader discovers a terrifying secret."
Thinking Speed is a big project for the amount of money spent on it. The film has been completed for less than two grand and many hours of preparation, filming and editing. It was shot over 173 days resulting in 52 hours of footage to edit. This has to be a labor of love for Lisa Menzel who wrote the novel, the screenplay, and directed the movie. Also, for the cast and crew that contributed countless hours of their time to the production.

"We both have distinct styles, but when we collaborate we create an almost seemingly new style: the IA Production style I guess one could say. We both recognize that there are some things that we cannot co-direct, but even when that sort of situation occurs (for instance, for our film "Johnny Boy" I directed, he DP'ed), the other person will DP or help out in some sort of large capacity."
Originally from Kinston, North Carolina he wound up in Miami via Minnesota. In Minneapolis he had his first brush with movies while working as an extra in Drop Dead Gorgeous. That's when he first became interested in film. While still in Minnesota Jackson produced films of both stage plays and screenplays. He also met his wife Karuna Sun when she auditioned for a film he was working on.
From Minneapolis they headed to Miami where Karuna was urged to come for modeling work. Jackson's first job in Florida was playing a Russian thug in Burn Notice. Ready to go anywhere he's looking to come back to North Carolina for some of the productions springing up in the area. Here is a conversation with Jackson about where acting has taken him.
