SEAN COVEL is a film and television producer who grew up in a blip of a town in the Black Hills of South Dakota. His credits include Beneath for Paramount Pictures, The 12 Dogs of Christmas directed by Academy Award Winner, Keith Merrill, and the iconic independent film, Napoleon Dynamite.

Together, Sean’s movies have played lots of places, won a bunch of awards and whatever, and — most importantly — gotten nerds prom dates across the globe. He very much wishes that would’ve been the case when he was in high school.  

Sean enjoys shooting movies, writing weirdo children’s books with his weirdo friends, and lecturing at universities and film festivals internationally, but he hangs his nunchucks in Deadwood, SD.



REBECCA SWIFT should’ve had a perfectly reasonable career in a perfectly reasonable field. This is due to having excellent parents. Imagine their concern as their daughter expressed interest in all things “the arts.”

In addition to drawing doodles and painting pictures, Rebecca is an established singer-songwriter, having been on American Idol and releasing her first album North of Normal later that same year. When not art-ing up the place, Rebecca works as a professional makeup artist. Which is still art. But on faces.

Rebecca is a proud mum to two girls (Quinn and Logan) and a lil dude (Tommy). The three were in no way an inspiration for the Porter the Hoarder series. Except that they were. Completely. Logan has a thing for stashing candy that is borderline intervention inspiring. …It’s a concern.

Rebecca hangs her many, many (many) hats in Bridgewater, SD.
