CAMERON DEARMOND
CREATIVE

An expert at emerging platforms and new technologies, Cam's real knack is connecting audiences to innovative and relevant content. Cam has concepted and directed original and branded content across platforms. His interactive narrative film series MISSIONS for Nike was the first of its kind, gamifying digital run-tracking before that was a thing.  As creative director at Conscious Minds, he has crafted content for some of the biggest brands. When he's not coming up with the next big idea, you'll find Cam building his own furniture or getting muddy in his Jeep.

BLAKE HEAL
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

While still an intern at Warner Bros, Blake became a social media influencer himself when his YouTube video snatched ten million views. Soon after he launched his own content agency, Conscious Minds, and went on to produce work for clients like Nike, Uber, Levis, Snapchat, and Red Bull Media House. His company’s work has been featured in AdAge, Fast Company, Billboard Magazine and on CNN. Social Animals was Blake's first feature film, but he's got others brewing, and they may or may not include Big Foot.

JASON SANTOS
PRODUCER

A blackbelt cinephile and visual-culture guru, the only thing that rivals Santos' film collection is his record collection. His day job for the last couple decades has been producing branded and original content with his unique blend of dreamer and get-shit-done-aleady. When Santos isn't creating content he's curating it through his podcast Good Looking Out, usually over a meal he spent most the day cooking.

DAVID RICKSECKER
DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANT

David Ricksecker grew up in a place called Delaware and knows every back road in the lower half of the state because of his distance running. He studied English in Virginia and became a high school teacher after graduation. Except for wasting all his money on old German cars, he makes excellent decisions; and besides, his next road trip screenplay calls for a Mercedes turbodiesel.
