Amy Dresner is an author, motivational speaker and former stand-up comic whose debut book is a memoir called "My Fair Junkie" that chronicles her journey in battling addiction and ultimately turning her life around. Growing up in Beverly Hills, Amy Dresner had it all. But at 24, she started dabbling in meth in San Francisco and unleashed a fiendish addiction monster. In 2011, high on Oxycontin, she “brandished” a bread knife on her husband and was arrested. After bouncing from rehabs to halfway houses, and battling multiple additions, she started over in her 40s.

Paul Reeves always wanted to be a filmmaker but found himself working in the video games industry for 20 plus years as a 2d/3d artist and animator. He was one of the original GTA / Grand Theft Auto developers. Paul's first short film is Gameboyz, which he wrote, directed, acted in and is now adapting as a feature film. He spent 2 years training in operatic theatre and screen acting, created the visual effects for several films, and became a self-defense instructor, a film combat choreographer and a "fairly respectful" stage, TV and film actor. He has engaged one of the best movie combat choreography teams in the world to create the action sequences in his movie.
