Getting into the movie business while watching Salma Hayek dance with a ten foot python next to George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino is a pretty good start. From Dusk Till Dawn to Desperado to Sin City, Ethan Maniquis worked his way up from being an apprentice on those legendary movies sets to becoming an editor working with Robert Rodriguez in Austin Texas.

He went on to work as an editor at Miramax films during the exciting independent film movement of the late 90's. Other credits include the thriller 'Sequestro Express'; Venezuela's highest-grossing film ever. In 2010 he co-directed 'Machete' together with Robert Rodriguez. Growing up in Venice, Ethan trained his eye by doing still photography of bands and extreme sports around Los Angeles.

Ethan met Sean Findley as a troubleshooter on a movie project: "He saved the film". A pro skateboarder, passionate surfer and "the brain" of visual effects, Sean Findley knows all software programs and takes on each challenge. His dream is to make Hollywood visual effects for a reasonable budget and to help filmmakers with a great story.

The technical progress definitely helped -- who would have guessed that a man with an apple computer is now sharing credits with multi-million dollar productions? This is due in large part to Sean's fearless personality and his "everything is possible" attitude that helps him remain independent and viable in the ever changing film industry.
