Dan Moores, Jason Riesgraf, and Stephanie Riesgraf today announced two key contributors, Katie Triplett and John Vang, have volunteered to join the production team.

Katie will also hold the titles of lead makeup applicator, hairstylist, special effects makeup artist, and production assistant.
"I've worked on short films and commercials before, but never a feature film. Horror films live and die by their makeup applications.

John will hold the titles of best boy, boom operator, lighting technician, camera operator, and lead production assistant.
"John Vang is an up and coming filmmaker and represents the amazing potential that the young Twin Cities film community has in its ranks. I've known John for many years in non-film related capacities. He's a remarkable addition to this team and I look forward to working with him," said Stephanie Riesgraf, executive producer for the film.
Added Jason Riesgraf, the film's director, "I'm so excited for Katie and John to join our film. They are both immensely talented in what they do. We were lucky to get them."
