Jonathan and Matthew Friedman are brothers and creative partners, aged 31 and 30, respectively. They were raised in Virginia Beach, VA, which they still call home.
        Jonathan graduated James Madison University in 1994 with a B.A. in Mass Communications. In high school, he made short martial-arts movies with his friends, and in college began considering filmmaking as a career. He tried his hand at screenwriting, working up several treatments and movie scenes--one of which later became Moving--and eventually decided to adapt one of Matthew's short stories into a screenplay for his first serious filmmaking effort. This screenplay became the short film Scattering Ashes, which premiered locally in 1994 to an enthusiastic crowd of friends and family. Despite not being a commercial production, it was nonetheless a successful experiment, receiving an unexpected review in an arts magazine, and cementing the Friedman brothers as a creative team. In college, Jonathan also spent his time playing in an acoustic duo, writing bad poetry, playing darts, and was one of the first people to ever discover the Dave Matthews Band.
        Matthew graduated the University of Virginia in 1995. He began as a Physics major, then branched out into music, chemistry, economics, and drama, eventually settling on an English major, which was flexible enough to allow him to indulge his indecisive nature. He, too, played in an acoustic duo, wrote even worse poetry than Jonathan, and carved a replica of the Rotunda out of snow (the Snowtunda) which was featured on the front page of the student newspaper. In high school Matthew stumbled onto the theatre department and has been an actor ever since, appearing on both community and professional stages--where he recruited much of the talent for Moving. After college he and Jonathan formed Marjoram Productions, specializing in graphic design and filmmaking. Matthew is currently an EMT with the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad in Virginia Beach, and his recent screenplay, All of Creation, was accepted to the 2003 Sundance Screenwriters Lab.

       John McClung is a veteran cameraman and video technician who joined forces with the Friedman brothers as an editor on their short film Scattering Ashes. Also a Virginia Beach native, McClung has been co-owner of more than one local TV production company, shot his own full-length movie on 8mm several years ago, and with his partner Mike Breault runs the live video at several area concert venues, including the Harbor Center Pavilion and the NorVa.

       Michael A. Zimmerman is a Microsoft Certified Engineer with a background in theater production, having been the head technician for many productions at Shenandoah University, Virginia Wesleyan College, and several area stages. He has lent his skills as electrician, sound engineer, and lighting tech to the Moving effort, and in between movies he works as a IT networking specialist for a large contracting firm.
