John Smart began working on feature film in the Art department while still in college at the University of New Mexico where he received a BFA in theater. After a number of years working on such films as The Big Easy, Heathers, and Barfly - he decided to teach in Los Angeles and at school for teens who’d gotten in trouble with drugs. He became known for bringing film industry professionals to the school as guest speakers and mentors. Establishing a relationship between the school and the local film and TV industry that lasted long after he was gone. When John returned to working on films he dove into legal clearances. He’s worked on a long list of projects including: The Good Lie, Don Jon, 2 Guns, Shopgirl, The Hot Flashes, Linsanity, Looper, Bullet To The Head and approximately 60 other films, TV shows and DVD games. He loves clearances because he can both assist in legally getting a production difficult items they may want or need for a project - but more importantly a Clearance administrator is one of the last firewalls a production has avoid legal action - and a copyright infringement claim can be lethal for a film.

Fred Crist established FACrist/Metalsmith in 2007. He is an educator in great demand whose work is widely collected and exhibited. The following is an excerpt from his 2011 interview with Iceforge.
“Forging metal has always been my choice of material and process as a sculptor and craftsman. From the time I was first introduced to this direct manipulation of metal as a student at Philadelphia College of Art in 1974, (under the direction of Jack Andrews) I was captivated by its potential as a sculptural medium.
Upon graduation, with a BFA in Sculpture, I began working at Samuel Yellin Metalworkers in West Philadelphia in 1977. This studio, renowned for its excellence in hand forged architectural works dating back to 1906, was to be my training ground for the next eleven years. Here I began as an apprentice and worked my way up to Head Blacksmith. While at the Yellin Studio I assisted and lead on many major projects, involving reproduction of original Yellin work as well as restoration of works in need of repair."
