Bryan Schaefer (President/Filmmaker)
Bryan Schaefer Who am I? Well, for those of you who really want to know and even dare to explore me, here's a rough sketch. I am a relatively young man with a creative mind. I had lived most of my life in Lancaster County, PA. With all the Amish in the area, it is a very slow moving lifestyle. I am currently spending my days working as office manager at the family business. (www.schafco.com)

Fortunately for me, my summers were spent at the NJ Shore. This is where I have met most the people who have influenced me. My summer days were filled with surfing, drinking and girls. Occasionally I worked at a arcade, movie theater, pizza shop and even a bank.

I have admired the work of video production most of my life. From a young age I have enjoyed watching films and shows that involve lots of special effects. In other words, I'm a Trekky! Star Trek and many other science fiction shows have really sparked my interest in the video production business. My love for film appeared throughout my college years. I had the awesome opportunity to take some classes about film, as well as helping in the creation of a commercial for the college. This is where I produced my first video, our class's version of Jane Eyre.

After school, instead of pursuing my dream of traveling to California for film school, I decided to marry the most wonderful woman in the world, Peggy, and work for the family business. With the loving support of my wife (and sometimes a good quick kick of her boot) and the flexibility of working with the family, I have been able to jumpstart the production company.

I have been very fortunate with life. I have introduced my wife to summers at the NJ shore. I also still enjoy surfing, drinking, and checking out girls (you know, just for my single friends, of course!) Mark, Peggy and I have done a large about of work to get the production up and running. Their creativity and motivation has been extremely beneficial to the company.
