    CHRIS BROWN (Writer/Director) has been producing award-winning films in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past decade. His previous films include Daughters (“Something as genuinely unpretentious as Chris Brown's debut feature seems an anomaly.” – VARIETY), Scared New World ("Solidly in the tradition of pioneer indie pics like Cassavetes' Shadows." – VARIETY), Battleship Contempkin ("Gorgeous...you should check this film out if at all possible." – FILM THREAT), Lost Cat ("Defies categorization...hilarious." - SF CHRONICLE), and the 2000 SFIFF Golden Gate Award winner, Office Furniture.

    The Next Frontier, the PBS documentary Brown co-directed and edited, won a regional EMMY® award for BEST DOCUMENTARY in 2011.

    By night, Chris is a singer/songwriter.  His debut album Now That You're Fed was voted "One of the Top 10 albums of 2006" by a dozen music critics.

    Fanny, Annie & Danny is his third feature.

     

    MORGAN SCHMIDT-FENG (Producer) is a Bay Area film industry legend.  The son of pioneer indie filmmaker/author Rick Schmidt, Morgan has produced shorts, features, commercials and documentaries in the Bay Area for the last decade.  As a commercial cinematographer and producer, he has shot for companies such as Tesla, Cargill/Dow, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and United Technologies Corporation.

His work was included on the Star Wars Episode 2 DVD and rapper 50 Cent’s music video for the song “Heat”, and is featured on DVD releases of Star Wars Episode 3, Columbia Pictures’ Rent, Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 10th Anniversary, and Pixar’s Cars. His work has screened at film festivals such as Sundance, New Directors/New Films NY, the Berlin International Film Festival, and the Mill Valley Film Festival.
