Ethan Cushing - Director/Producer
Director/Producer Ethan Cushing completed a Master’s in Fine Arts in Film Production with an emphasis in directing at the Conservatory of Motion Pictures at Chapman University. He received his undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; it was there that a general interest in filmmaking transformed into an undeniable love for the entertainment industry.

Ethan co-produced the feature film The Forgotten Ones starring Serenity’s Jewel Staite and Twilight’s Kellan Lutz. He also associate-produced the feature film The Lost Tribe, which was acquired by Voltage Pictures, producers of the Academy Award winning film The Hurt Locker. His credits also include the creation and production of several seasonal television shows and short films including a promo for Tenacious D's new album written by and starring Bob Odenkirk. Ethan’s award winning short film, Negotiations, played at festivals across the world, including the Short Film Corner at Cannes.
