Voorhees Films presents Billy Shakespeare.
Cast and Crew of Billy Shakespeare
Cast and crew of Billy Shakespeare enjoy a wine party at John and Marissa Cleveland's Ruidoso Home.
Director, writer and producer Deborah Voorhees brought her experience as a journalist and actress to the film set. During Post Production she worked as Assistant Editor and Sound Editor.
Before joining the Billy Shakespeare team, John Soden focused his lens for ABC-TV, top fashion agencies, and the unique landscape of New Mexico.
Jim Snead pitch-hit in numerous roles including operating a camera, helping with lighting, working the slate, and as an assistant director.
John Soden works two camera for a scene starring Catharine Pilafas and Terra Wallace.
Cinematographer John Soden works with Jim Snead on a shot.
Christina Wahlstrom juggled many positions from script supervisor, pitch-in make-up-artist, costume coordinator, and at times Assistant Director.
Lead Sound Technician
Phillip David Collins juggled his role as Wilma and his responsibilities as the lead sound technician.
Native American activist Regina Annawoos Quinones handled sound during production as well as created the sets for the Taming of the Shrew.
Unit Production Manager
Pam Witte took time from writing her dystopian young adult novel to make sure the cast and crew showed up on time and in the right place.
Light Designer and DIT Technician
Bill Riggles was always tough to get on camera, so these shots of him dancing with Catharine Pilafas are priceless. On set Riggles' knowledge of all-things mechanical served the crew many times, but the man won Voorhees' heart when he hooked up his truck to the sound computer when its battery died so she could get the final takes at the golf course. Riggles also worked on color correction during post production.
Camera Operator/Visual Effects Editor
After returning from a photo excursion in Mexico, rogue camera man Rich Beer joined up to handle the roving camera for Billy Shakespeare. He also designed the film's website and captured many stills for the film's memoirs. Eight months after the film ended production, he married the director. Currently, he's working on visual effects and color correction in post production.
Resa Mercado juggled a full-time job while keeping the Billy Shakespeare cast looking good. Mercado has worked on numerous Hollywood films and has owned her own cosmetic store.

After several missteps in the editing room, Boo Inks, with more than 30 years of experience as an editor, rescued Billy Shakespeare, not only by making the visual cuts but teaching Voorhees much about post production.
