Hailing from southern suburbia, Jenna Payne saved up her summer lemonade stand money to move to New York City in the fall of 2003. Jenna waited tables, typed up some prose, and spun records in a few of the city's darker dens before realizing that she knew no one in publishing and had seen more films than eaten hot meals! Quickly diving into filmmaking, Jenna shot "Feline Frenzy" in February and is in post-production for a sizzle reel for her feature-length script with writer Joshua Paverud, called "Grauman's Last Hero." The film is a comedy/noir thriller about the character impersonators in front of Mann's Chinese Theatre.
Carrie Miller was born and raised in the hills of Western Massachusetts surrounded by approximately 22 frenzied cats. Upon moving to NYC by way of St. Louis in 2004, Carrie has pounded the pavement in the fashion and retail worlds while secretly writing away late into the evenings on her own. Seedy bars nurture great partnerships in the East Village, and Carrie and Jenna's was born of a raucous burlesque-themed monthly party and long chats about writing. "Feline Frenzy" is their first collaboration. Carrie is currently in pre-production on a sketch-based webseries, as well as developing a sitcom for cable and a feature-length screenplay.
Originally from Minneapolis, Jaime received her BA in Communication Arts from Marymount Manhattan where she focused on film and media studies. After an internship with the Tribeca Film Festival in 2009, Jaime's desire to work in film was cemented, and she leaped at the chance to work on Feline Frenzy when the opportunity arose. Jaime is currently working on forming a production company with two fellow Tribeca alumni.
John Budge, a Seattle native, received his BFA in Acting from the University of Montana. He has performed in various theatre and film projects in Seattle and New York City. John is also a writer of plays and poetry and recently collaborated with illustrator Pan Pantoja for a book of haiga (illustrated haiku and senryu) titled "American Haiga," which is now available for purchase through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
New York-based actor Richard Brundage had his first stage role in 2000 and his first film role in 2002.

He has played parts in "A Day in the Life," "Cold Souls," "Last Night," "Don't Do It," "Dead Man's Boat," "MANawers," and "Man Land." Tyler also offers custom-made Bodies by Tyler for anyone looking to shape up. No cats involved. Some pain required.
