Jimmy Weber • Writer / Director / Editor
Jimmy’s love for movies began when he saw Terminator 2: Judgement Day at seven-years-old. Years later, he graduated from the University of Colorado Denver where he studied Writing and Directing Film. This lead to a series of successful short films including Incubator which played at Fantastic Fest, Fantasia, Screamfest and over 50 other festivals and won 13 awards. Eat is his feature length debut as a writer/director. Parts of the film are funny, other parts are gory and some parts of Eat are even touching. Jimmy hopes EAT showcases his ability to dramatically shift tones within a single film.

If things had worked out as Annie planned, she would've been the youngest member of Kids Incorporated at age 7. Instead, she settled for dancing along at home and spent her adolescence watching movies released well before her time.

Annie has produced many short films, including Incubator, which played at over 50 festivals and won 13 awards. Eat is Annie's first feature length producing credit. Someday, Annie hopes to produce a film with less killing and more dancing.
