Nathan Vess - (Liam/Ud)
Born with an over active basil-ganglia, Nathan Vess was prone to anxiety and a difficulty focusing his attention. This neural condition lead to a love of escapism with an over active imagination. His profession is in video game art, but he still makes time to participate in every Finley Mimbles production possible. This causes some to call him an actor, though he's uncomfortable with the title. As geography and profession continue to pull him away from the Tacoma based studio, Vess still contributes all he is able, and expects to do so until everyone gets tired of him.

Adam Utley - (Steven)
Adam Utley has been an active Improvisational Theatre Specialist of the Puget Sound area since 2004. His artistic heart thrives in 2 specific avenues, each based in the essence of Improv.  Muh Grog Zoo, is a 4 person cohort specializing in Improvised One Act Plays.  Script-less.  Fearless.(www.MuhGrogZoo.com) And, The Yes Works, is a Business Consultant LLC co-founded by him to engage businesses/teams in 'solving the problems that they think are unsolvable' through the tools and techniques of Theatre Improv. (www.TheYesWorks.com)  He truly loves what he does and would thoroughly appreciate you checking out his passionate endeavors mentioned above for more details. Aside from that, when time allows, playing in the world of film brings him a sense of satisfaction that is hard to describe. He's made a promise to himself and others that he'll do more!

Dylan Twiner - (Shaun)
Dylan Twiner loves theatre and storytelling, and has been working at it since graduating from the theatre program of Pacific Lutheran University. Mostly he performs with the improvisors of Muh Grog Zoo, so the freedom of the Middlevale shoot was a fun experience to have for a debut feature film.
