Nadav-Sacha Santo

Writer / Director

Nadav’s creative tale originates with the discovery of his love for storytelling at an early age. Through play and writing, his passion grew and stretched until one star-crossed day he bore witness to Fight Club and his love of stories and cinema entwined before his eyes. Nadav was never the same after, turning to writing and directing short films and music videos as a fix to his newfound hunger. T’was not long after he found himself on the West Coast of Canada studying and working in film, spending many a year on the long-running TV show Supernatural before settling down with A Lot filthier than most to enjoy creative pursuits.

Alain Williams is a comedy writer from Victoria, BC. His influences are stand up comedy, fantasy and science fiction genres, hip hop old and new, and all things classic kung fu. He stutters proudly and he will probably laugh too hard at the things you say. If you ask him to play D&D, he will say yes, as long as he can play a monk.

Bev Rapley

Writer / Performer

Born and raised in the West Coast Wilderness, Bev is an all-around outdoor lady/ creature who is more at home in the forest than anywhere.  Somewhere between gaming, travelling, cycling, yoga, brewing (and drinking) beer, riding horses and motorcycles, Bev found herself working at AFL living out all her wildest sci-fi / fantasy dreams of becoming a professional nerd. She loves working in a creative environment surrounded by good people, and is always ready with a cringe-worthy pun or Dad joke. Her insatiable thirst for adventure, trying new things, exploring and finding new places has landed her the position of vlogger at AFL. She loves animals and nature, and as a former archaeologist, she has a deep appreciation for history and the occult. She drives like an asshole but has a good heart. There is a little wiggle room in there for food, friends, family and comedy.

I would like to think that I am a true coddiwompler at heart. 

Inspiration strikes. I may not know which direction to head, but by putting one curious toe out the porthole and just committing to sail into uncharted waters has been the most rewarding way that I find my path of calling. The winds change often, but arts and the environment is where my heart truly sings. After studying as a jeweller amidst the ruggedly beautiful mountains of kootenays, I longed to create more than just jewellery. I put my strange imagination at work and the possibilities were endless. 

It was only a matter of time before I ended up in the film Industry; Driven, confused, Jack of all arts, passionate, transient, with a touch of artistic madness. 

While traveling New Zealand, inspiration was in everything; every gnarled root, sulphurous mud belch, cavernous glaciers and hobbit holes; and like Bilbo I coddiwompled my way in to my first big adventure. My first film gig. 

I haven’t (for the most part) looked back. 

I can’t begin to count how many treacherous swamps, seemingly endless swathes of surprisingly stingy stinging nettles, trolls, wolves, and thick gnarly thorn brambles have barricaded my missions; yet I am able to see the magic in mystery and explore my passion without borders. I will continue down the road of creating all kinds of art, and uncovering a spark in curious places I would not have otherwise found.

And here he is! Introducing Not Dog Kev! Let’s get weird!”
