Kieran Thompson, Director
"I like telling stories about others far more than about myself, but if you really must know... I spent my formative years in Tempe, Arizona. Did I just say formative? I studied film at Scottsdale Community College and at The Los Angeles Film School. My thesis film Caleb Couldn’t Love tells the story of a boy diagnosed with a disease where if he falls in love his heart could explode. Most recently I directed RED, a short thriller set in 1954. I'm still amazed that RED has screened all over the world. I love making movies because they have the power to make people laugh and reflect. There's no better feeling than hearing an audience laugh at a joke or to hear them discuss the film on their way out of the theatre. I believe Broken Leg will create these situations!"
Case Barden, Producer
"I was born and raised in Seattle. I love that city and it will always be home. I've spent a bit of time traveling the country. I've spent a bit of time building trails in the Rockies. And I've been working in the film industry for the over three years in Los Angeles. I'm lucky to have worked on cool projects like The Future, Terri, Wrong, Would You Rather, and the forth-coming Computer Chess. I met Kieran through the Boy Scouts and we had the opportunity to work together doing national training. We both have a love for film. We both ended up going to the Los Angeles Film School. And we both have been working in the industry for a few years but never had a chance to work together on a project. So now with Broken Leg we're making it happen."
Bret Kalmbach, Director of Photography
"I'm a director of photography, originally from Colorado, now residing in Arizona. I got my start in independent filmmaking shooting skateboarding videos. I attended film school for four years first concentrating on editing and then on cinematography. After purchasing a DSLR, I shot a spec commercial which led to steady production work around the country shooting adventure races and commercials. I'm co-owner along with my brother of Apairus Company and we recently purchased a RED camera. I'm truly excited about this project."
Sarah Sawyer, Lead Actress
"I was born and raised in Phoenix and I currently attend Arizona State University. I've always loved acting, but really caught the bug when I changed my major to musical theater during my first year of college. Previous credits include: Winthrop (The Music Man), Fritzie (Cabaret), Kim (Bye Bye Birdie), Leading Player (Pippin), Lily (The Secret Garden), and Sarah Brown (Guys and Dolls). I love creating relatable characters, and I'm quite excited for audiences to see Broken Leg!"
Luke Johnson, Lead Actor
"I grew up shooting VHS in my hometown of Gilbert, Arizona with a camcorder always strapped to my shoulder. I did the The Luke Johnson Phone Experiment a few years back and received millions of views. I do improvisational sketch comedy with The Luke and Tadd Show and Baby Cute Boys. I also dabble in the viral arts with my commercial company Propusganda. I was recently a producer on the feature film Vamp U. I love movies, I love the creation process, and can't wait to share Broken Leg."
