Editor • Writer • Director
Geoffrey Orthwein is an independent filmmaker whose work has been shown in theaters, museums, and broadcast television. In 2017 he co-directed the feature film Bokeh, starring Maika Monroe and Matt O’Leary, which he edited in Final Cut Pro X. The film was sold to Screen Media Films, which distributed it in theaters and on iTunes, Amazon Prime, and Netflix, where it is available today.
Geoffrey started as an editor and colorist working on the film Ocean Odyssey, a multi-screen installation wrapping 270º around the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. He went on to do live production and commercial work for companies including Google, Salesforce, The Walt Disney Company, T-Mobile and Virgin. Today he continues to work in independent films, commercials and video games.
Fiona Borres-DeLuca has been turning film into movies for the last 20 years. Her work as an editor began at the first digital post-production house in Manila (in those days, Final Cut Pro hadn’t been invented yet, so those were Avid days).
She’s since worked on all the various film editing software – Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro. IMDB has the list, but her credits include everything from award-winning feature films and documentaries, as well as music videos, TV shows, trailers and shorts.
She co-founded her own post-production house, Bonfire, in Manila, and while her day job these days is working at Apple – she occasionally helps out as Bonfire East. The move has meant though, that there aren’t any more client stories about negotiating with armed guerillas before a shoot in the countryside, or the one about the guy who paid for his movie with a paper bag full of cash. But maybe change isn’t all bad…

Art Director, BBDO Worldwide
Storm is an Art Director at BBDO Worldwide, one of the top advertising agency in New York City. Over the years, she has robust career experiences in higher educational institutions and advertising. Storm’s significant work over the years has been brought to the attention of BBDO and recruited Storm as an Art Director & Creative Resident in Creative Residency. This makes Storm the first (historically) Deaf woman to be part of the Creative Residency and ever to work for BBDO Worldwide. Storm featured in PopSugar, Billboard, Campaign and her recent BBDO’s influential campaign ad for International Women’s Day “It’s Time to Redefine” was also featured in AdAge, AdWeek, Creativity, PR News Wire, The Drum and more. The campaign has reached Google’s attention, whereas, on the following day post-launch, Google’s definition of “woman” changed and no longer carries the definition “a female paid to clean someone’s house and carry out general domestic duties.” This powerful impact has moved the needle and generated approximately 12 million impressions worldwide. Her stellar storytelling work has often helped to shine a positive light on critical societal issues, i.e., people with disabilities, gender equality, people of color, LGBT. She have executed collaborative projects for companies featuring Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin on her new apparel clothing line, Tony nominee Lauren Ridloff for accessibility services for program and organizations, and historically 13th woman on Harlem Globetrotter, activist and influencer, Crissa Ace Jackson and incredible young rising star and influencer, Samaya Clark-Gabriel for their branding advocacy video. Storm’s countless contributions and appearances have earned her numerous awards, including a prestigious award from the City of Los Angeles, presented by the mayor and city council members, for her dedication and contribution to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community
