Frederic Chaignat -- Director of Photography    Originally from the French part of Switzerland, Frederic came to the US to pursue studies in filmmaking. He was quickly drawn to cinematography, because of its mix of technical knowledge and artistic sensibility. Frederic is currently building his career and hopes to focus it on narrative films, either short films or feature length, for he finds working with actors extremely gratifying. Frederic believes that images and visual language are everything in filmmaking, but their only purpose is to support the story and present the characters' struggle in their environment. More than anything, the cinematographer's job is therefore to make the best out of every set-up, and to shoot for the story instead of just shooting the shots.

Jason Smith -- Producer/AD    Jason Smith is a transplanted Bostonian, who followed the golden trail to sunny Bakersfield, California. (Alright, he tagged along when his fiancée accepted a position as an Emergency Room Nurse at a local hospital) This budding screenwriter/producer/ad came upon Breaking in Unlocked Doors through pure karmic intervention, and since the first fateful meeting with Adam Wolf, has not regretted this association for one minute. Always on the lookout for his next project, Jason has pledged to stay committed to making sure that Breaking In is seen by as many people as possible, "I was lucky to have been blessed with great parents, and a wonderful childhood, so to see and hear what some people are capable of is distressing. Adam put together a great project, for a truly worthy cause, and I feel lucky to have been a part of it."

Holly Alderman -- Script Supervisor    Following in the footsteps of her mother, Executive Producer Sheri Singer and her older brother, writer/director Adam Wolf, eighteen year old Holly Alderman has been flung full force into the industry this summer. While she has dabbled into acting a bit in the past, Holly has realized that her true passion occurs behind the camera. Last summer, Holly got the opportunity to PA on the "One Minute Soaps" for the SoapNet. As of this summer she holds a coveted internship at NBC Universal in the Alternative Programming Department. After "Breaking In Unlocked Doors" wraps, Holly will be assisting Wolf in the editing room, helping to edit the "making of" documentary for the DVD, She also will be script supervising another project for DevCar Productions, and will finish off her summer as a PA on the newest Disney Channel Original Movie tentatively titled "High School Musical." Holly will be a sophomore at California State University, Chico this coming school year. She is majoring in Spanish and Film.

Nikolai Loveikis -- Production Designer    Nikolai has recently started his career in film after working as a salesperson for Giorgio Armani for over three years. He is originally from Monterey, CA, attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and has lived in Los Angeles for four years. "I feel fortunate to have been part of this movie.
