Frank L. Fox, Fling
A California native, Frank Fox began to create drawings and paintings
at a very young age. His early artistic influences were the fantasy
art of Frank Frazetta, Roger Dean, and Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.
At age seventeen he joined the US army where he learned computer
science. After four years in the military and receiving an honorable
discharge he went to work for IBM as a Customer Engineer in Los
Angeles repairing computer mainframes and peripherals. Ten years
later he went to work for a Huntington Beach advertising agency
that catered to the IBM midrange computer hardware and software
industry. He took his clients' print advertising campaigns from
concept to completion using what was at that time cutting edge Apple
Mac II computers.
In 1992 Frank moved to Big Bear Lake, California and worked for
four years as Production Manager for a weekly newspaper. Now he creates database applications using PHP & MySQL. Frank is a self-taught
musician, 3d modeler/animator, coder, songwriter and machinima maker who
sometimes likes to haunt rock bands and play guitars in bars.
You can view some of Frank Fox's 3D art at Website Graffiti, his
web site designs at Foxanne Media, and watch his machinima here

Steven Jae Johnson, Fling Films Actor:
Steven Jae Johnson got his taste for music--and drama--early.
Starting several rock and roll bands in the early '60s, before
it was "the thing" to do, he eventually made a connection
that would set the tone for his professional life. At age 15,
he met another aspiring singer, Edward James Olmos. Together they
played all the major clubs on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. They
packed in the crowds with their combination of good music and
campy, slap-stick routines.
Olmos credits Johnson for suggesting he try acting, and Olmos'
direction was set. While Johnson also found he had a flair for
acting, his first love will always remain music. Over the years,
he and Olmos have remained fast friends and business partners,
but Johnson has also made his own name in the business. His work
in the feature film, "A Million to Juan" (with composing
partner Jeffery Johnson--no relation) was given rave reviews in
Billboard Magazine and the Hollywood Reporter. Blockbuster reports
heavy sales of the soundtrack in its release week.
