Bio: STEVE KOSTANSKI: Steve has been working as a prosthetic make-up effects artist for nearly a decade, starting in 2004 at the age of 17 on the horror film TAMARA. Steven’s genre credits have ranged from low budget horror (WRONG TURN 4, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT) to big budget sci-fi (RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, PACIFIC RIM). Recently he won the Best Make-Up Effects award at the 2011 Sitges film festival for his work on THE DIVIDE. Steven is equally prolific as an independent filmmaker, with numerous shorts and features under his belt that have played festivals worldwide. His feature lm MANBORG has played in over 30 festivals around the world, and recently acquired distribution in many major territories, attracting the attention of big name genre labels. MANBORG has been released in Canada, the US and seven other major territories, and will soon have a theatrical release in Japan.

JEREMY GILLESPIE: Jeremy is an accomplished visual designer and composer with over 15 years experience working in a wide range of disciplines including print graphics, motion design, visual effects, and music for film. Over the last five years he has developed his skills writing and directing short and independent films with Astron-6, and has travelled the U.S. directing promotional pieces for multi- national companies such as Stanley Tools. His feature film work has run the gamut from small budget projects to big budget films such as ROBOCOP, TOTAL RECALL, and PACIFIC RIM. He has been invited to speak about his work at film festivals, both nationally and internationally, most recently in Brussels, Belgium. Together with the Astron-6 film collective, the duo cowrote and directed the feature FATHER’S DAY, which won first place at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Both FATHER’S DAY and MANBORG have become cult successes, attracting the attention of critics and audiences worldwide. To date, MANBORG has been released theatrically in Canada and on DVD/ VoD domestically as well as in the US, Australia, Germany, France, Scandinavia and the UK.
