Christopher Fernandez/Director  began his artistic as a painter and draftsman. Having found the limits of painting too elitist and restrictive a medium, he discovered that he could reach a wider audience with narrative film. It was a perfect match. In 2002 he received his undergraduate degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He spent the next few years gaining production experience by working in Washington D.C.’s local film/Television industry.  In 2008 Chris decided to further his artistic growth in the graduate program at Chapman University’s Dodge College. His award winning cycle film, Andre, has screened at festivals across the country and internationally.

Kaitie Ty Warren/Lead Actor has spent most of her acting career on stage throughout California, Washington, and in the Middle East. She has recently returned to her hometown of Los Angeles to focus on film work. She has trained at ACT (San Francisco), Berkeley Rep and Aurora Theatres (Berkeley CA), X Rep Theatre (downtown LA), and has a BA from the U. of Puget Sound (WA). She has built an award-winning theater company written a festival-selected full-length play, and received a best supporting actress award for her stagework. Since filming Beneath, she’s worked on two other films, one TV project, and begun admitting that she’s also a singer/songwriter.
