Given it's from the Guardian, in all likelihood his real name is actually Roger Edwards.

Life is Strange game director Webb Pickersgill.
Worked with William Bolander on a short, Professor Hu hires a temp, as did one Shalynn REynolds, star of a Mormon superhero comedy.  The only non-amateur in A Superhero Comedy - Nate Doane knows my acquiantance Elisha Surrealsister Rachel, who I know through the great Larry Karaszewski.
Mubi horror maven Brett Wm Mauser and his sidekick Amanda Nutting

Creepshow's Sydney Wease also in a short, Extraterrestrial by Damian Kidd, who did a short called Adam Reader's Revved up like a deuce
Deadpool 2 and Neighbours both featured actors credited simply as Reader/Reeder.https://www.imdb.com/search/name/?name=reeder
https://www.imdb.com/search/name/?name=reader



Chapman university were also involved with the Rocky and bullwinkle film and a 2002 short called Lost thoughts - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0360757/companycredits?ref_=tt_dt_co

Slad eCurtis was in the X-Men film and this green short with Kyla Kenedy off the Walking dead - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3796086/companycredits?ref_=tt_dt_co

Abby Sugrue of the films Far from India with 24's Kahlil Joseph and Marvel fanfilm star Andrew Roth, Evenfall with Donald Duck's current voice Daniel Ross and Perfect Poison with the Wire's Brandy Burre


Andrew Roth produced these films all on Letterboxd, eg Kinonation's Squid Man and Backwater from Osiris entertainment with Thomas Daniel and Christopher Schrank, which got a Starburst review - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1984116/
Far from India also featured Sandy Lisiewski of the films of Carlos Etzio Roman, the Vulture's Eye from bargain bin regulars Maxim/Pendulum pictures, and the director of Far from India Pepi Singh khadra and Josh aDam Davis' Customflix pic the Inn featuring Once upon a time in Hollywood's Chad Ridgely, Friday the 13th cinematographer Barry aBrams, Nitin Adsul who was in the Wire,MGM's Hit and Run (with Chris Shand, Enda mccallion, lauren breckinridge and Kevin Corrigan) and Far from India, Footsie and the Toe and the Gravitas ventures-released 8th Plague and the Jay Randall Story 2009 (that's the title - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1585578/externalreviews?ref_=tt_ql_op_5).
Lisiewski was also in Emily Aguilar's Brie's Bakeoff Challenge with Isaiah from Sesame Street
https://letterboxd.com/film/the-inn/
 The Inn  also features the ludicrously named  Greg Cool, who was in the Town with Pete Postlethwaite, and a film called the Chest by Ron Perozzi/Glossed productions from 2004 and https://variety.com/2004/film/reviews/the-fall-before-paradise-1200532586/
ETzio Roman seems to have been a former convicted child molester, and the only person who works elsewhere with him is Russ Isles, who was in Spenser for Hire, and films for b movie guy Tim Ritter. He does know a friend, Mark Redfield and his partner Jennifer Rouse.
Also, Etzio Roman's latest film has Ian Bamberg, star of the Radio Times-featured Image Ent horror Mischief Night, and the likes of the middle, Criminal Minds and Hawaii-50. Etzio Roman seems to be a con atist, of some sort, though his name is listed on Passion River films as a head of a festival alongside Sharon CArpenter and Bruce Alan Dawson, and Passion River are a real company.
 Released https://www.rogerebert.com/festivals/tiff-2017-thelma-disobedience and followed by proper film friends like Cheryl Dunye.

Etzio Roman's (with his friends Darrell Poe, Rachel Youngson, Kevin Troy, Pablo Rodriguez) also been interviewed by Eerie Digest, who interviewed someone I kind of know, Jason Figgis plus legendary stuntwoman Marneen Fields who's done the Swarm, Concorde Airport 79, plus Christina derosa, Jackie Leibowitz, Ellen Dubin...
https://eeriedigest.com/2011/11/taem-interview-with-producerwriterdirector-jason-figgis/

David S. Dawson I thought was mentioned, but he wasn't. Made this film with silly photoshop , and also a new film called Shadows with former A Bronx Tale breakout Francis Capra. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1977540/

Rower Chad Rudolph https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chad_Rudolph

Jeff Swerdan - director of Becoming the Reaper (which stars Mckenzie Fox, who did a film with Jesus of Nazareth's Yorgo Voyagis)  He also knows Andrew Rakhman, who knows my friends the people behind Turbo Kid.


Guy McDowell's Old Man another Maxim media shite.

BRad Allen worked in Canadian Tv's Galaxy Trek and Friday the 13th


Aussie called Bruce Carpenter - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8134676/ which sounds like Aussie Jesus.

Tyler Goins  has a split imdb. He did a HBO short - LeRon Lee's Ugly and An UNfortunate Accident with Daniel Proeta from the upcoming Amazon version of the Underground Railroad, and the April Fool 2017 by Ryan Prince who recently did a version of the Hounds of Zaroff and worked on the Trump Prophecy for Fathom Events - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4523220/fullcredits?ref_=ttexrv_ql_dt_1
An Unfortunate Accident also featured Jessica Wilson Montgomery who's only done shorts - Green Eyed Monster, Dog River, the Inconclusive Phases ofa Breakup - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9596103/
But her most professional work is the Power of Rah - the Glory and Gold, a retro-80s saga (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12937530/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk1) starring Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns' Mariana Tolbert  and Creepshow's Ja'Ness Tate who was in Vision Films/Itunes/Prime/Letterboxd's Hidden Orchard Mysteries: The Case of the Air B and B Robbery (2020) and a short called Puppy Love.

Green Eyed Monster was by Ken Merritt , the Frederic Forrest-looking director of Unfortunate Accident and Jesse's Gift about a bearded hipster with a guitar in Canton, Georgia and Baby shoes- https://www.imdb.com/name/nm11016335/?ref_=tt_ov_dr He's currently boom operator on A Unicorn for CHristmas with Dallas' Charlene Tilton and Sunny Mabrey from HIllbilly Elegy.

FAcebook says I know https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature,video,short&countries=us&role=nm0205417 Ryan Davis, who makes a promotional short called A World of Health, but worked on Hope Floats and Miss Congeniality and 1991's Scary Movie. He is married to Julie Russo Davis, who isn't Julie Davis of Sundance's Amy's Orgasm.
The weird thing is his nickname is Ryan, but his real name is John.

Ryan Dawlie worked on TV series Backstage Pass and Club Connect n the 90s and Robby Robinson: Built with the Pumping Iron star, and Digging with Earnest in 2001 by Erick SCott and Nickelodeon's Henry Danger star/Ty Burrell-alike Cooper Barnes.


The films of letterboxd's Cynthia Leal - Amazon prime short and the feature Suicide Notes (being dist. by the folk, Champion entertainment also doing Wisegirls with Mariah Carey and Alicia Silverstone's Angels in Stardust), the short Meggan's Journey and then a stint on the popular Kristen Dunst sitcom On Becoming a God in Central Florida and Solus with John Enick who's in the new Scream fanfilm by Joe Grisaffi, has a stint in the new Walker Texas Walker series, . https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?titl ... =nm4818104 and in films like theTubi Dauntless Battle of Midway and something called the Sand Dune.

Maurice Terrell Walker was in Lifetime's the Preacher's Daughter,  the old school Jurica Road with Mandalorian's Dominic Pace (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6848958/?r ... flmg_act_2),  Organizatsiya with the Falcon and the Winter Soldier's Neil Kodinsky (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3506046/),  the stencil-postered Dreamer with Modern Family's Irene White and Lady Z Ent's the Jacket by    Zulema Nall  and Norman Ray Fitts and  Fran Williams, Julitta Pourciau, Lance Henry

 https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4106092/  Maurice Terrell Walker


New Girl's Vicky DAlli who was in Colson Baker's music video that cost 850,000 - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3325168/ I Don't Dance, Tubi's Escape Artist and Promakhos with Giancarlo Giannini.

I'm sure the Ryan Gaudet who worked for the Nokia sugar bowl and Marvel 2nd unit dirctor Lars Winther's Elixir Isotope is the same one working on this reboot of UFO that imdb still lists even though it was cancelled in 2011.

Finding Hope also features Robyn Coffin - who's in various films on Lettterboxd, one with Cobie Smulders.


Karen Rangel worked in Brazil and on the unfinished Jonestown Defence - the Christopher waite stoy with the awesome Amy Seimetz.


Sorry for these long-winded things.

I discovered a mail from a chap/chapess called Chuck Hamrick today. Doubtlessly mercilessly called "Fuck Hampipe" at school for being a bit of a cnut. Still writes a mightily cunty marketing mail.
