ABOUT THE CREATIVE TEAM
Angeline Walsh (writer/director) is beyond honored to be making The Coroner's Assistant.
Dagna Griffin (director of photography) is a Cleveland-based videographer. As the owner of Dagna Griffin Creative, she creates a variety of personal, intimate, and unique films for weddings, real estate, birth, and more. Her absolute dedication to visual detail and capturing the perfect moment makes The Coroner's Assistant's cinematography captivating and engaging. She also owns two hens.
Giorgiana Lascu (producer/Mary Cross) was cast in the role of Mary Cross in The Coroner's Assistant (who is sadly not in the pilot episode), but ended up becoming the producer as well, because she takes on too many projects at one time. She has appeared in films made through her own production company, Old Coal Pictures, as well as various stage shows, web series, and radio plays. She is unreasonably excited to play Mary, and at least one of Dagna's hens love her.
Katerina Zizis (audio/boom operator/on set photographer) is currently a MARS student at Tri-C. She was roped into this production by Angeline, who wanted her to be an on set photographer, and ended up also doing sound when the sound person couldn't make it to the shoot and it just kind of happened to all work out.
Nick Lemke (audio/boom operator/on set photographer) literally stumbled onto set the morning of the first shoot by tripping over a step and falling face-first onto the floor. Since then he has recovered and now does sound work for the production, as well as on set photography.
