Devin Clark

Raised in a condemned building in Philadelphia by two artists, Devin was well equipped for future success. Exposure to his mother's stash of 70's underground comics at the tender age of 11 left Devin both mentally scarred and perpetually inspired by the potential of visual narratives. From then on he could always be found either drawing comics or reading them, the stranger the better. He further explored his love of time-based media as a video art major at Syracuse University. There, he challenged the confines of the format by injecting his bizarre sense of humor into his art. Most notably in his noir-inspired video, SLAP, featured at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, in which a faceless figure slaps him in the face for 5 continuous minutes. He also continued in comics with his debauched strip Hasa Basa for Syracuse University's Daily Orange Newspaper.

Heading to New York City, Devin cut his teeth producing video content for the new media company Wavesystems. As a freelance designer he has been involved with a broad range of projects including work for HBO, MTV, Comedy Central, TCM, and The Cartoon Network, applying his design and narrative skills to everything from network graphics to traditional cartoons. His films and animation have been featured in Stash Magazine, Animation Block Party, Rooftop Films, Ottawa Film Festival, Platform, Atom films, and BDA. In late 2007 Devin produced the animated web series 5ON for Comedy Central. This horror-comic inspired series was the creative seed that grew into the world of UGLY AMERICANS, his original animated TV show on Comedy Central. Devin is presently acting as Executive Producer and Director on UGLY AMERICANS, which is now going into its third season.

Dawn Krantz

Dawn Krantz has an extremely broad range of experience in the entertainment, real estate and financial arenas and is a self proclaimed serial entrepreneur.

At the family gatherings there was always story telling and playing music and Dawn learned to love great story telling at an early age.

In 1983, Krantz saw the rising trend of the video business and opened a video store chain in Austin, Texas. These stores ultimately became one of the most successful independent video store chains in the country. In addition, Dawn also opened a chain of full entertainment stores in factory outlet malls throughout the country.

Krantz was voted in as a board member of the very prestigious Video Software Dealers Association (VSDA) from 1988-1995, eventually becoming Chairman of the Board, the only woman to ever hold this position. VSDA represented the major Hollywood studios and most independent studios as well as 35,000 video retailers around the world. During her reign as Chairman, she helped produce the most successful entertainment convention in the world; started an extremely successful charity, Fast Forward to End Hunger with Jeff Bridges; and worked hand in hand with the MPAA lobbying in Washington for both the film and video game industry and helping define the video industry during its hay day.

After selling her business, Dawn consulted with several very successful high tech, real estate and entertainment companies. She was then diagnosed with cancer and had to put everything on hold. When she got back on her feet she became a Realtor and in her third year, she sold 138 houses in one year, making her the # 1 agent in closed transactions in the US.

In 2008, Dawn was approached to help finance a movie and in less then a month she raised $3,000,000 and green-lit the movie, and with the real estate market crashing, she was back in show business. In 2010, Dawn moved back to California to produce full time. Since then she has been building a very successful production company which now has more than 12 films in the slate with budgets from $5,000,000 - $100,000,000. Her last completed project was Man Down with Shia LaBeouf and Gary Oldman which was released by Lionsgate in 2016.
