PEEK is one of any number of cylindrical objects (including but not limited to paint cans and chunks of wood) with a second smaller long cylindrical object passing through it lengthwise and two holes drilled in the front. The first PEEK came into being in the mid 90s, however, after an unfortunate accident involving a broken windshield, was quickly discarded. PEEK was reborn and became involved in movie production in 2003 during a conversation over a pitcher of beer in an Irish Bar.
Dan Tharp is a director, producer, writer, editor and anything else he can worm his way into doing. If you were to meet Dan in a bar, he would be your friend. If you bought him a drink, he will follow you around a little bit, until something shiny distracts him. He has done some commercial work, but that doesn't make him a sell out.....he hopes. Once, Dan cut his thumb with a meat slicer and it was gross. He almost passed out. The next time you see him, ask if you can see the scar on his thumb. Chicks dig scars. But, sadly for Dan, the scar is kind of hard to see. Chicks don't dig Dan's scar.
Damon Morris likes to make things. He likes to make cheesy little sculptures, he likes to make complicated Italian dinners, and he often makes the things in his room into people when he first wakes up. In the last few years, Damon has learned that his most favorite thing to make is movies. He thinks this is because it combines making a whole lot of little things into one big thing. He says that you get to make pictures, music, sounds, and put them all together and you end up with something that can make you cry, or laugh, or maybe even change your mind.
