This fall, writer-director Josh Sugarman, 27, completed his first feature, the Gen-Y TROPHY KIDS.  He continues tackling generational issues in fun and innovative ways with the youthful DEAR FRIENDS.  He’s a graduate of Brandeis and Columbia University.

Before co-founding YASU MEDIA, Yankowitz, 28, graduated from Brandeis University and New York Law School. DEAR FRIENDS marks his second feature as a boots-on-the-ground producer.  He’s admitted to practice law in New York and New Jersey. 

Before and after shooting TROPHY KIDS, Austin, 31, has been entrusted with several features, shorts and commercials, including the recent PETUNIA starring THORA BIRCH of AMERICAN BEAUTY and BRITTANY SNOW of HAIRSPRAY.  He studied at NYU’s Tisch Film School, FAMU in Prague and AFI in Los Angeles.
