The Team

Lee Baran

Lee Baran

Director – It started simple enough. Some voice acting in Vancouver. Hanging out with friends, doing some walla. Some ADR. No big deal. But soon it was hundreds of TV shows and movies. Highlander 4, Suspicious River, Shanghai Knights, Chronicles of Narnia, Stargate SG-1, Andromeda, Cold Squad, Babylon 5, Dead Zone, The L-Word, Masters of Horror, and more. And it still wasn’t enough. He wanted more. He started writing and directing his own shoots. Short films and music videos. The awards only encouraged him. He moved to New York to shoot massive fashion brands such as Redken, L’Oréal Professionnel, and Pureology. Insatiable now, he partnered with Adrian Taverner to write and produce together. The awards continue to roll in…

Adrian Taverner

Adrian Taverner

Director of Photography – Adrian is an award-winning independent cinematographer and writer with a background in creative writing and design, photography, and DJing. Adrian worked in the film industry in Vancouver, migrating from post audio to loc audio to locations to grip to practical effects and back to post on what feels like half the shows to come out of BC in the last fifteen years. In 2009 he moved to New York full time so he could wear all of those hats at once for CAM, with a few more like camera and Steadicam op. He needs to know it all so there’s nothing between him and the image he’s after. He and producing partner Lee Baran have won some awards and aren’t in the least bit surprised. They’ve earned them the hard way.
