Kelly also works as a graphic designer and creative consultant when she’s not chasing her two dogs and two cats around her Oklahoma City home.

Jason Zavaleta is an award winning San Francisco Bay Area native filmmaker. Since discovering his passion for directing at the age of eight from public service announcements for the United Nations, to online commercials for a leading cosmetics company, and from music videos to feature foreign documentaries, there’s no genre that Zavaleta won’t explore. Jason graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.A. in Cinema. While a sophomore at SFSU, Jason founded the Epsilon Chapter of the revived National Professional Cinema Fraternity, Delta Kappa Alpha (est. at the University of Southern California, 1936). He’s currently in development on numerous feature films in both the United States and Italy. Zavaleta’s two most recent narrative shorts (In the Forest of Darkness and The Proceedings) will be part of the Shorts Film Corner at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. He hopes to continue to explore the infinite possibilities of cinema and share them with the world to experience, discuss, and enjoy!
