After leaving the United States Navy, Travis Waldroop worked in the security industry. He took some time to do theater work here and there, staring in "Harvey" as Mr. Wilson, and as Malforce in "The Clumsy Custard".

Feeling that his calling was somewhere hidden in the entertainment industry, Travis continued to write while working. Turning to a indie picture by Vyrus Films called "The Coffee Break" Travis was able to snag one of the leads as Officer Richard Johnson.

Today Travis is an Executive Producer and Senior Partner at Ellipsis Studios, where he is developing several feature films and also working behind the scenes as a jack of all trades.


With a passion for creativity combined with over 20 years in the technical field, Matthew Nadreau has become an instant success within the special effects industry.  His ability to push his boundaries with both practical and digital effects consistently shocks and surprises audience members, staff and crew, as well as himself.

Matt's initial interest in the effects field began with costume design and professional movie quality mask creation.  Of course, once he combined his technical skill set to the stage and screen, he instantly knew he found his niche working with both digital and practical effects.

Matthew’s props and effects have already found their way into several short and feature length films. When he is not busy designing his movie magic for projects, Matt continues to build his brand name and online presence by teaching other upcoming directors, film crew, and special effects artists the secrets to all things “Special Effects”.
