HUNGRY
Let your passion light the way, dive into the deep end of opportunities, and always be the first to yell, 'I’m in!'

HEART
Show off your emotional muscles, listen with the empathy of a best friend, and build a work family you'd happily invite to your backyard cookout.

The Team

Angela Gerke
Operations Manager

Angela oversees operations and the direction of our company. She holds the leadership team accountable and executes the business plan while reviewing efficiencies and sets milestones. In other words, she is very into details and helping our company thrive so we can tell more stories!

When not working on new team goals she loves travel and exploring new places - local and worldwide. She also enjoys reading historical fiction and biographies, but mostly Angela spends time with her husband, John, and four children planning their next adventures.

Zak Howell
Filmmaker + Story Guide

Zak is the creative eye behind the camera and works closely with our Director of Production to edit the story for the greatest impact.

Filming has been a passion of his since a very young age. Even when he was young, Zak created and edited home movies.

When he’s not behind the camera, he enjoys hiking, camping, meditating, and going on many life adventures with his beautiful wife, Melanie.

Zak is an avid professional wrestling fan! It’s actually where his love for storytelling started.

Nick Stevenson
Studio Assistant + Assistant Video Editor

Nick aids the team with any studio-related tasks needing to be accomplished like organizing gear, media management, as well as running studio-related errands. He also works as a video editor alongside Grant and Zak for certain projects.

Nick developed a love for filmmaking in high school through a media production class, which he ended up retaking two more times just because it was so fun! In addition to camerawork and editing, Nick discovered a love for acting in front of the camera as well through his pursuit of theatre while in college.

When he’s not working in film, Nick loves to spend his time watching films, singing, and staying active in the gym.

Fun fact: Nick’s dad was our owner, Ryan Koral’s, college professor!

Ryan Koral
Founder

With over 18 years of experience as a documentary filmmaker and entrepreneur, Ryan is all about building partnerships with clients and sharing authentic stories that inspire action, highlight legacies, and help businesses grow.

He's been happily married for 20 years (and his wife still loves him - no joke!) and is the proud dad of three kids (plus their cuddly pup, Koda).

When he's not busy coming up with big ideas, you can usually find him cracking up or sipping on a cup of coffee (preferably not at the same time). Oh, and in his spare time, he also helps other video studios build their businesses through an online membership, a weekly podcast show, and masterclass courses.

Fun Facts: Dad jokes galore, killer Yoda impression, and Audible addict.
