RANDY NARGI (Writer/Director) grew up in Westchester County, New York, where (like many right-brained children) he spent his youth drawing cartoons and making short films with his dad's Super 8 camera (including a German-language parody of "The Six Million Dollar Man" and a version of Richard Connell's "Most Dangerous Game" with an all-GI Joe cast).
During a stint as an advertising copywriter in New York, Nargi had the opportunity to work with famed documentarian Albert Maysles on a cough syrup commercial—and went on to write and produce over 100 TV and radio commercials during the next 15 years. In 1990, Nargi and his wife (actress Jessi Badami) moved to Seattle where he composed unsuccessful grunge rock songs, participated in the rise and fall of a couple of Internet start-ups, created an indie sitcom ("Houseband"), and eventually wrote and directed his first feature: "G-SALE."
Nargi attended Trinity College, Hartford and the British & European Studies Group, London. He is currently developing a sitcom pilot and two feature films.
ERIC BROWNE (Director of Photography) is a native of the Northwest, but spent ten years as an actor in New York performing in theatrical productions on and off-Broadway. He has worked on a number of independent features ("Back Spot Turn," American Messiah," "Kindred Spirits"), TV ("Possession Point," "Hard Copy"), as well as the cult film "Class of Nuke 'Em High." His documentary work has taken him all over the world—including Haiti, El Salvador, and Tanzania. Browne is a graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography. He is married to noted commercial photographer Angie Norwood Brown.
MARY LIVELY (Line Producer) was educated at Mt. Vernon College, University of New Orleans, University of Texas, and the Nick Harris Detective Agency. She began her production career in Austin as a staff Production Assistant on numerous national commercials. After moving to Los Angeles, Lively worked on documentaries, music videos, TV series, and several feature film projects ("Ballad of the Sad Cafe," "Other People's Money," "Passed Away"). She relocated to the Northwest in 1998 where she has worked on commercial projects for Disney and Nike, independent films ("Honing the Edge"), and music videos ("Pearl Jam").
In true Gemini tradition, JEAN LANDRY (Production Designer) has developed two parallel careers as both a production designer and a modern dancer. After attending both The North Carolina School of the Arts and California Institute of the Arts, Landry moved to New York City in 1987 and performed throughout NYC and in Europe with the Kumiko Kimoto Co.
In 1991 she relocated to Los Angeles and began as a set decorator on feature films and in television. After California shook in 1994, Landry landed in Seattle and began dancing with Pat Graney and Peggy Piacenza and designing independent film and dance projects. She has designed for Mark Handley ("The Good Egg"), Kris Kristensen ("Inheritance"), Brian McDonald ("White Face"), KT Niehoff, Peggy Piacenza, and Cheronne Wong.
