Preston is the man you want on your team. Upon understanding the importance of getting the story of "Cathedral Canyon" told he took money from his retirement fund and became our Executive Producer.

He cooked BBQ for the entire cast and crew, rolled up his sleeves to construct and clean up sets.Whether it be our screenings,charity work or simply representing the movie, no job is too large or small for Preston.

Chris is the Cancer Service Director at Editha House providing housing, care and comfort to those in need. To have Chris by your side while going through such a journey would make all the difference in the world. We were so grateful when Chris told us that MMAD was her "Vitamin B12 shot. They opened my eyes to polygamy and human trafficking going on in my backyard. Then I learned not only do they expose stories, but then they stick around to help these people.That's when I came onboard."
