Chico

Chico Eastridge, Technical Director & Senior Producer

Chico Eastridge is known as our Professional Plugger-Inner. Chico is a professional formula-1 race car driver, with a sexy accent, and a devil may care attitude. From humble roots, amongst the vineyards of Burgundy, Chico Eastridge tinkered with the emerging e-commerce market and became disgustingly rich. After graduating from his nautical high school, which traveled the world via outrigger canoe, Chico attended Brown University where he majored in sword fighting, minored in back flips, and had more fun than just about anybody. You can find him nowadays staring listlessly into space with a smug expression on his face.

Jordyn 4x3 1

Jordyn Fitch, Community Engagement Producer

Jordyn grew up in Miramar, Fl, but if you ever ask, they’ll say Miami because who here really knows where Miramar, Florida is? They attended Dartmouth College and pursued a Film and Media Studies major,  planning on declaring a minor at some point in something that would assuage parental fears of having a child that is a Film and Media Studies major. It never happened.

They are beyond thrilled for the opportunity to put it all to use—educating, empowering, and entertaining the Upper Valley community through media arts.

Nick helps out where help is needed. Part time assistant, scheduler, and editor. He searched for this position in hopes to fulfill his destiny in the film industry.

He has done background work on films such as Grown Ups, Here Comes the Boom, Detroit (2017) and a couple others. He also hosts a podcast about bad movies.

I’m from Los Angeles, California. I completed my bachelors degree in Painting/Art History at CCA in San Francisco. Having never studied film-making in art school, I taught myself various aspects of film/photography/editing by making short films and working in Community Television. Being naturally shy, I feel most comfortable in front of a canvass or behind the camera.

I am a post-grad intern in the Film & Media Studies Department at Dartmouth College. I am in love with the technical and the poetic aspects of filmmaking equally. I feel that filmmaking is a collaborative art form through which we can share our most personal stories in a safe and inspiring way.

Hi, I’m Cedar (they/them)! I’m an aspiring screenwriter and director. I grew up in the DC area, but spent the last four years out west completing my undergraduate degree in film and media studies at Colorado College, before making my way to the Upper Valley. When I’m not working on my own films or producing CATV projects, I enjoy cooking, roller skating at Riverside park, and exploring Vermont’s unique, natural wonders.
