Nelson Oliver, a North Carolina native, earned his Bachelor's Degree in Film Studies at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington before acquiring his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Peter Stark Producing Program within the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts in 2013. His 2012 internship at The Kennedy/Marshall Company led to a full-time position at Steven Spielberg's Amblin/DreamWorks the following year, which he has maintained while completing the 35mm short film, THE RED CAPE, that he and producing partner, Brendon Murphy, began nearly a decade ago.
Corey is also a North Carolina native and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a BS in Business Administration (marketing concentration), and a BA in Film Studies. He met Brendon and Nelson at a local Port City Java to discuss “The Red Cape.” Impressed by their vision, he emphatically joined the team as a locations manager, and then later as a co-producer. Corey has since worked in the Location and Production departments on projects like “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” “Iron Man 3”, and “The Conjuring.” He recently joined the Directors Guild of America as an Assistant Director, working on Bolden!, The Disappointments Room, and the History Channel's “SIX.”

After her first production meeting on The Red Cape, it was clear that Danielle would be a cornerstone of the producing team. As a UNCW student, she single-handedly revived the campus radio station, which had been inactive for 7 years. Her get-it-done attitude served The Red Cape just as effectively, greatly expanding the film's community support.
