Angela Giddings

Angela Giddings wears many hats. She’s an independent filmmaker, a self-published author, and a molecular biologist. She has been involved both behind and in front of the camera for Sick Chick Flicks. She likes creating stories that live in the murky borderlands between fantasy and horror. When she is not working on film projects, she is busy writing a series of novels set in a post-apocalyptic alien world or playing with proteins.

Dave Harlequin

Described by both press and colleagues as an “independent renaissance man” and “voice of the underground,” Dave Harlequin is a professional screenwriter, journalist, author, and independent filmmaker from Charlotte, NC. He first broke into the world of filmmaking in 2013, and has since worked on over a dozen films, many of which have won various awards throughout the film festival and convention circuit. In addition to his film work, Harlequin is the Editor in Chief of Nerd Nation Magazine, has over a dozen published short stories, dozens more non-fiction published credits, and has been nominated for two Rondo Hatton Awards for his journalistic contributions. Outside of his career in entertainment, Harlequin is an avid foodie and beer aficionado, and enjoys cooking, coffee, gaming, and hanging out with his dog.


Stage and film actor, writer, director and an independent live event producer for over two decades, Torch has acquired a wide range of experience in every aspect of independent production of multimedia projects. In his spare time he watches sci-fi with his dogs and speaks to them in horrible mad scientist monologues all day. The dogs mostly ignore him.
