Crew
RYAN KUNA: Ryan Kuna is a Philadelphia based cinematographer, studying in Temple University's film program. In Ryan's junior year at Temple, he photographed the short film Abort Mission, which won the Diamond Screen Film Festival's Best Undergraduate Film Award. The project also recently screened in the Dolby Theater in Manhattan. He is excited to experiment with expressive techniques to give Luminary a look that reflects the fantastic nature of the script.
GREGORY KAULFERS: Gregory Kaulfers is the producer and production manager of Luminary. Studying film at Temple, Greg found a specific interest in fictional narratives dealing with dark themes, Greg’s work has varied greatly, between contemporary dramatic stories such as the film Ronnie to fantastical stories such as Luminary. He is a long time fantasy and horror fan and has always wanted to work on bringing genre into the forefront of filmmaking, as he feels the genre is one of the best storytelling devices. Greg hopes to take this ambitious project and make a film unlike anything seen before.
DYLAN SMELTZER: Dylan Smeltzer is an editor with a background in documentary and narrative short films. Growing up with a passion for music, Dylan became interested in filmmaking when he began to notice the way editing is used in film. The rhythmic qualities of it intrigued him and inspired him to begin to develop his own editing skills and techniques. He enjoys working on a variety of styles of projects such as documentary films, narrative shorts, advertisement videos, and music mixing. Horror and fantasy films inspire his approach to filmmaking because of the world building and ability to make audiences care about characters in a fantastical world.
