And now, THE PRODUCTION TEAM!
We are thrilled to have attracted the interest of the irrespressible star of such hit TV series as The Wild Wild West, Ba Ba Black Sheep, and Hawaiian Eye; and Director of countless Hallmark made for television features, Mr. Robert Conrad, to the team as our Director.
A man who, around the world, really needs no introduction, we suggest after you read about him at the IMDb link we're sending you to - you pull Bob up on YouTube for a stroll down memory lane and to take in a few segments of his current and very popular (12 Million regular listerners weekly) CRN international radio show "PM Radio with Robert Conrad" - as well as countless hours of video in which he is featured.
Those who have worked with Mr. Conrad line up to sing his praises. As a no-nonsense Director, he has the reputation of being able to keep detailed focus from sunup to sunset on the scenes at hand. Bob is forever mindful of what needs to be accomplished, and that equates to bringing his pictures in on time and on budget. Check out his recent honoraria at our In The Spotlight page.
Ms. Kallen is best known as the First Lady of Boxing" for having become the first female to manage a World Champion boxer, James "Lights Out" Toney, however, her tenacity, perserverence and positivity in all arenas makes her tops in whichever ring she enters.
Her life story was portrayed in the film "Against the Ropes" and there is no doubt that "PAST DUE!" will soar with her at the production helm. Jackie is a much sought after motivational speaker and we invite you to read up on her by clicking her picture after you've heard her personal introduction above.
So GREAT to have you in our corner too, Jackie! Even before we step on stage to accept our first "Oscar" - you make us all feel like World Champs!
Ronald Vidor, S.O.C.
Director of Photography
Mr. Vidor is known the world over for his work on such cinematic classics as Jaws, Lethal Weapon, The Big Chill, Five Easy Pieces, Romancing the Stone, Stand By Me and hundreds more. He has toiled alongside such heavyweight directors as Steven Spielberg, Aaron Spelling, Tony Scott, Richard Fleischer and Lawrence Kasdan, to name just a few.
Through his lenses, the world has witnessed some of the greatest acting performances of all time by legendary actors with everlasting star power.
How's this for a short list?
Sir Laurence Olivier, Timothy Hutton, Richard Dreyfuss, Jackie Gleason, Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Meryl Streep, Charlton Heston, Jack Nicholson, Karen Black, Albert Finney, Glenn Close, Neil Diamond, Brian Keith and, as the saying goes, a "cast of thousands!"
Mr. Vidor has joined the "PAST DUE!" team as its Director of Photograhy, lending experience, creativity and a résumé that is unparallelled in the film industry.
Whether on land, sea, or high up in the air, if it involves manipulating and maneuvering a camera Ron has been there and done that; and more so than most Hollywood cinematographers.
We are elated to have Mr. Vidor play such an integral role on our illustrious team.
A.D., Co-Producer, Music Supervisor
Mr. Harlow brings an invigorating style to his film making that has been called "refreshingly powerful" and calls on his background as a successful songwriter, composer and musician when orchestrating a feature length film from the behind-the-camera perspective. Joey will be Assisting Mr. Conrad in directing as well as working alongside Jackie Kallen from a production standpoint. His joining forces with Virginia Bryant Bair of FireFly Films is a testament to his fervor toward "making "PAST DUE!" the most meaningful, statement film ever!"
Screenwriter, Co-Producer, Chief Consultant
"PAST DUE!" is the vision and brainchild of Mr. Perry, a four time book author who is resolute and absorbed in his efforts to turn his screenplay, "PAST DUE!" into a major motion picture that entertains and has a resoundingly positive impact on the lives of film goers everywhere.
His extensive background in all facets of the credit industry uniquely qualify Benn as the film's Chief Consultant.
"If "PAST DUE!" is controversial in any way, it will be considered such by those working in an industry that could use a complete overhaul of its tenets; so I won't shed a single tear for them once this film plays on Main Street, USA!" Perry assures.
Gary, though unrelated to the famed actor of yesteryear, is in his own right prolific. He is an Emmy Award winning director, writer and producer whose impressive credits includes Associate Director of the very popular TV staple "The Phil Donahue Show," and from 1980 through 2004, Mr. Cooper was Staff Director at WXYZ TV in Detroit. He will be "coming home" so to speak, as our Line Producer, which will allow him some quality time getting reacquainted with a few old friends. It's great to have this consummate professional on board. Welcome, Gary!
HUGH H. HATTEN
First Asstant to the Director of Photography
Hugh is a remarkably gifted photographer who is keen on keeping up with all the newest and greatest technological advancements in the photographic realm. That kind of ring savy, if you will, would, for most people, leave them feeling a sense of self-importance or entitlement. Such is not the case with Mr. Hatten, who has gracefully consented to work alongside our renown Director of Photography, Ronald Vidor. His intent is to learn from the Master and we have little doubt that will be exactly what becomes of this cinematic experience for him and the rest of us involved in this production!
Billy is a Michigan film industry icon who was right there at the start of things when his home state kicked movie production into high gear. If there's a major motion picture being filmed anywhere near The Mitten, you can bank on Mr. Whitehouse being close at hand. His talents include production management as well as casting, which is why we've brought him to the project to tackle both of those important tasks. Working with you is a pleasure, Billy. Full speed ahead, mate!
Brad is another homegrown Michigan man who is responsible in large part for putting the State on the film making map over the last thirty years. His long list of storyboarding credits include the locally produced features Stone, Cedar Rapids and Judicial Consent. Besides Brad's work in motion pictures, the roster of clients for whom he's rendered and tendered drawings reads like a veritable Who's Who. Some of the more recognizable names are: Ford Motor Company, Hertz, Cleveland Clinic, Duracell, Mazda, ESPN, Goodyear, J. Walter Thompson, Mr. Coffee, Bosch, Blockbuster, Steak & Ale and White Castle. The storyboard artist's job is to provide scene drawings for the entire feature film. These drawings are gone over with the Director and Production Staff and serve as the movie's blueprint. They assist the Director of Photography in establishing the film's shot list, and, for all intents and purposes put an actual face on the project. Brad is one of the best around, and we are proud and honored to be working with on "PAST DUE!"
Speaking of the overall LOOK of the film, the Costume Designer is responsible for authenticating each and every image by matching clothing to scene sequences, mood and termperature changes, as well as keeping continuity precise. Ms. Hong is at the top of her field, having worked on lower budgeted indie films as well $80 Million budget films such as Real Steel with Hugh Jackman in which she was an Additional Set Costumer. Her Costume Design and Supervisory credits include such recent motion pictures as The Bully Chronicles, Happy Ending, Golden Shoes, which coincidentally stars Eric Roberts who is playing the role of Danny Westbrook in our "PAST DUE!", Love and Honor, The Wannabes, The Domino Effect and countless other familiar features. Under Aline's guidance we'll have a costume design team that is second to none!
ANTONIO DI IORIO
Senorè DI IORIO is one of Europe's rising musical stars. Hailing from Campobasso, Italy, he has received countless award nominations for his conducting and composing prowess both in television and film and achieved admission to the prestigious Master of Music in Film Competition at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program (A Seattle Film Institute affiliate)in September of 2011 and on July 6th, 2012 received his Masters Degree from that admired institution with top honors.

We are exhilarated to have this tremendously talented man join our amazing Production Team and look forward with great excitement to working with him in all phases of production!
Jackie is gracing our shores all the way from Truro, Cornwall in South West England. She is a dynamic, motivated and hard working assistant with a track record of stellar management services provided to Screenwriter, Benn Perry. Their relationship was forged in the mid 1990's during Benn's trailblazing effort to introduce the United Kingdom to credit counselling. They've remained in close contact and once he said the word, Jackie, in her most cheerful manner, simply stated "I'm in!" She will be a tireless force of positive energy both on set and in whatever capacity her assistance will be needed. Reliable, capable, intrepid and powerfully personable are all adjectives that fairly describe Ms. Gregory, and we are elated she's agreed to join our Production Team and is now a member of our amazing "PAST DUE!" family.
LESLIE ANN BURNS
Original Jazz Tracks
Composer & Performer
Known in and around metro Detroit as Mr. Excitement, and the leader of The Brian Alexander Experience, this remarkably energetic performer has made a name for himself by virtue of the countless radio and TV jingles he's written and performed, as well as his LIVE performances for dignitaries from all walks of life, and having shared the stage with some of Motown's most beloved recording artists over the years. Brian is gracing our production by recording original jazz tracks that will be featured in key scenes. To get a closer look at this musical dynamo, click on his picture above. That click will take you directly to his aforementioned "Experience!"
JUSTINA LEE BLACK
Recording Artist and Performer
Justina is a multifaceted, multitalented woman who is graciously lending one of her songs to be featured in our film. Ms. Black is not only a recording artist and top notch vocalist, she is a person who is continually striving to give back to the community, either in the form of a puppeteer or donning her teaching cap and working to help underprivileged students. Have a long look at the life and work of this amazing woman by clicking on her photograph above. You'll then see why it was essential to welcome her on board the "PAST DUE!" team!

Virgina is the force behind FireFly Films which has joined forces with Laguna Films in order to produce "PAST DUE!" Virinia is multi-talented, whether in front of or behind the camera and is a genuine asset to this feature film project. Her adapatability and manner of working with key personnel is such a breath of fresh air in what can tend to be a rather contentious industry and that breath of fresh air permeates among the entire cast and crew. Thanks for being the YOU that you are, Virginia, and thanks for seizing the opportunity to be an integral part of this production!
