| Born in 1981, Madison J Crafton resides in Henderson Kentucky with his wife, Lacey VanCleave and their Chihuahua “Little Trooper”. His parents are Mike and Ellen Crafton and he has one brother, Aaron. Madison has lived in Henderson most his life, graduating from Henderson County High School in 2000. When he is not prowling the streets as Batman he is woking his day job at Teknor Apex Company.
Madison enjoys comic books, comic book art, movie props, screen costumes, and other art of that nature. He can frequently be found around town portraying various characters with his friend (and Batman|Metaphors Location Manager) Collin Royster, for entertainment of others and himself. He has made appearances as everything from a Jedi to Spider-Man to his on screen persona as Batman.
He has made appearances at numerous Conventions and local events as Batman including at DragonCon and at Comic Quest for free Comic Book Day. He enjoys watching others reactions to him in costume and always has time on set to stop and take pictures with kids or passers-by.
It is rumored that he will “drive no other car other than a Honda because all other cars are inferior,” though that statement does not bode well with the classic car aficionados on the cast and crew.
|Krisitine Farley|Harley Quinn||Bio|
| Kristine Renee Farley began acting in film this year. During this time she has worked with Feathered Italian Films in Hell House and Trepan, which was selected for Fright Night Film Festival in Louisville, KY; The Familiar Road and Texas Gas with New York Film Academy student Alfonso Ponton; and 3ME with Dream Light Media. You might have also seen her in a local commercial for Eye-Mart.
She is also no stranger to the stage and is currently rehearsing for Or Not To Be, a bloody, horror interpretation of Hamlet, playing Oct. 22-25 at Underground at the Annex in Washington Square Mall. Also in rehearsal at the Annex is the stage play adaptation of Girl, Interrupted in which Kristine plays Suzanna: performance dates to be determined. Her most recent appearance onstage was at the Glema Mahr Center of the Arts in the world premiere of Killer Cast Party. She has worked with the Evansville Civic Theatre in Almost, Maine; Bus Stop; and Romeo & Juliet. She appeared in Killer Instinct Theatre Company’s inaugural production, Night of the Living Dead and took part in the Henderson Fine Arts Center’s Once Upon a Mattress.
She fell in love with acting at Henderson County High where she took part in productions Get Smart and It’s Murder in the Wings. At HCHS, she participated in a nation wide project to bring high schools across the country together and participate in theatrical productions for their various schools called TheatreLink and graduated with honors in Dramatics.
| Derek Mullins is a native to tri-state area and is a graduate of Henderson County High School class of ’92. Although growing up in a movie theater, Derek is not interested in becoming a professional actor, but does enjoy he entire filmmaking process and has done a number of projects over the years.
In 1995 Derek had his acting debut in “One flew over the cuckoos nest” put on by the Theatre Prod. Repertory People of Evansville. His first paid acting gig was in a nationally run commercial for H.H. Gregg in 1996. Through the years he has had a number of gigs in the industry. He worked as a paid stand in for Robert Urich in 1996 and has taken acting advice from Gene Hackman. Derek is the star of Forever, and is signed to take the title role in Neil Kellen’s Abaddon.
His pursuits are not limited to the screen. In 2002 he ran for mayor of Henderson, but was unsuccessful in obtaining office. He is also a world traveler having seen Paris, Poland, London, and Germany.
When he is not terrorizing the tri-state (or the rest of the globe) you can find him behind the wheel of his prized possession (besides his cat) a 1969 Dodge charger (as seen in Batman|Metaphors and Forever)
Derek is also a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2001.
Halloween being his favorite time of year, Derek has donned many costumes through the years including the Crow, Anakin Skywalker and Jim Morrison.
“Acting is like a drug, the more you do, the more wanna do.” /td>
| Neil Kellen has had some sort of motion picture camera in his hands since he was 10 years old. Starting out with a Kodak Super 8, he created many five minute short films with his good friend, Gregg Hale (The Blair Witch Project, Seventh Moon).
After college Neil graduated to the world of broadcast television and independent video production. That of course inevitably led him to the popular field of Digital Filmmaking where he has worked on and been recognized for many amazing projects.
Niel is currently listed on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) for his critically acclaimed 10 minute short film "FOREVER" which was shot in 2007. BATMAN|Metaphors is Neil’s first "Fan Film."
Neil is not only a gifted director, cinematographer and talented writer, but also a loving husband and father.
|Marx Pyle|Producer-Fight Choreographer||Bio|
| After attaining a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and an A.A.S. in Computer Information Systems, Marx decided to pursue a dream he had since childhood – filmmaking. Leaving his home in Evansville, Indiana, Marx went to Vancouver Film School in Vancouver, British Columbia to study film production.
In Vancouver he worked on a wide range of projects, including short films, independent feature length films, documentaries, reality television and commercials. His roles in such projects have varied just as much: Producer, Writer, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Editor, Sound Mixer and of course the infamous Production Assistant.
He also studied another hobby of his outside of school – fight choreography, which naturally arose out of his interest and background in martial arts. Marx’s training in martial arts ranges greatly in different styles: Jun Fan, Kali, Hapkido, Kung Fu, Pacific Archipelago Combatives, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Tai Chi, Silat, Judo and more.
Missing home he returned to the Tri-State, where he has worked as a freelancer in various film projects. Recently he found like minded creative minds to team-up with on Batman Metaphors, the first of hopefully many films by them.
In his spare time, Marx loves working out, writing, practicing martial arts, watching movies, reading a good book and spending time with family and friends.
|Jarrod Moschner|Producer-Art Director||Bio|
| Jarrod Moschner is new to the world of Fan Films. This project will be Jarrod’s first “Fan film” and is his first time working on a film with this wonderful group of people.
Jarrod has a wide range of interests and backgrounds to draw from. Having backgrounds in math, science, as well as degrees in Graphic Design and Web & Multimedia is immensely helpful in the art process for film.
His acting experience is limited mostly to some Shakespearean theatre in high school and college and the infamous (and seemly lost/destroyed) short film Ghetto Cowboy Ninjas. Behind the scenes he has been most active in television and in the RPG industry. He is an accomplished writer having written for both Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG and the Angel RPG. He has also written for various gaming companies and traveled to many conventions and industry events.
His film works have been mostly substituted with working in television. He has recently begun branching back out into film with Batman|Metaphors and a number of other local films.
|Bo Stephens was brought about to compose an original score for the movie. He is from the little town of Greenwood, Indiana. He currently resides in Indianapolis. Bo has always had an interest in music and can be found most days in the studio honing his craft.|
