A native Oklahoman, Erin McCarley is a filmmaker, photographer and sociologist with a driving passion for creating social documentary. A cum laude sociology graduate from the University of Oregon, McCarley worked as a bilingual (English/Spanish) social worker for several years before turning to media production. She has also lived and traveled in Central America as a human rights witness, creating photo essays on environmental justice issues featured on US television and used by non-profit peace and justice organizations. McCarley’s latest project is "Red Earth Rising", a feature documentary exploring Oklahoma’s colonial history, its Wild West mythology, and the oft-buried voices of American Indians who survived the historical trauma and transition from Indian Territory to Oklahoma statehood.
Born in Arroyo, Puerto Rico, Juan Manuel Diaz (DP, producer, editor) was whisked away at an early age to the United States where he grew up in Dallas, Texas. Now an editor, cinematographer, and post-production supervisor, Diaz is UT Austin’s College of Engineering Video Producer. Meanwhile, he has worked on several notable Austin film/video projects including the critically acclaimed independent feature The Slow Business of Going (Dir: Athina Rachel Tsangari), Hansel Mieth: Vagabond Photographer (Dir: Nancy Schiesari), and Austin Past and Present: An Interactive History (Dir: Karen Kocher). Diaz brings a mature set of technical skills and relentless perfectionism to the production of Red Earth Rising.
