KVIK shows are completely run by student volunteers; both an Executive and Assistant Executive Producer per show. Scroll down for bios from the 2013-2014 roster!
Fourth Wall Films
Jacob Foltz - Executive Producer
Jacob Foltz is the Executive Producer of Fourth Wall Films and an avid member of all KVIK productions. He is interested in writing, directing, producing, and editing while only dabbling in acting and cinematography. After school he plans on being poor and making feature lengths until something clicks but right now he just enjoys being on set and working with anyone interested in film. In addition, he is the proud owner of many leather bound books and his house smells of rich mahogany.
Travis Salmi - Assistant Executive Producer
Travis Salmi is the Assistant Executive Producer of Fourth Wall Films. An aspiring filmmaker since 2010, he primarily focuses on cinematography and producing, and hopes to help others be able to make their own films. Currently, he is pursuing a Secondary Education in Chemistry degree.
Sammi Firman - Executive Producer
Sammi Firman is the Executive Producer of VTV and a communication major at Western with minors in film studies and web development. She has dabbled in various aspects of video production since high school and hopes to continue her knowledge in editing and cinematography. In the future she hopes to work with non profits to make cool things (like videos!) to help promote their causes. She thinks KVIK is the bees knees and hopes you do too. Or else…
Becca Freimuth - Assistant Executive Producer
Becca Freimuth is the Assistant Executive Producer for VTV and a Visual Journalism Major. She has been involved with film and photography since high school and loves how KVIK allows her to continue learning. She was the Photography Intern last year and enjoyed stalking KVIKians’ film shoots; she learned true ninja powers. "I hope any one who is at least a little interested in photography or film will consider joining KVIK, because we are awesome... ya."
Ian Coleman - Executive Producer
Ian Coleman is the Executive Producer of Void Walker and host of the long recurring VTV segment, "Out There in Red Square with Ian." He walked in on a KVIK meeting by a completely random happenstance in 2009 that more or less has defined his college years. His time and effort are applied to producing and screenwriting. Currently, he is at work on earning a degree in Secondary Education so that he can fulfill his dream of indoctrinating the youth of tomorrow with his love of giant monster movies and other strange hobbies.
Ian Hansel - Assistant Executive Producer
Ian Hansel can be recognized by his clear attitude that life is always at least semi-formal and his voice that could make a wolverine purr. In childhood he spent most of his time drawing designs for spaceships which he continues to draw in his notebooks while in class to this day. Ian studies theatre but as a polymath he has a great breadth of knowledge and is considered a master logician among his peers. In Ian's free time he wields the hammer of ideas and the anvil of cinema to forge brilliant films that will make you laugh and weep simultaneously. Ian has worked on various projects in AS KVIK as a producer, writer, director and actor. While Ian studies many disciplines, his true passion will always be making films and building spaceships.
Brittany Sterling - Executive Producer
Brittany Sterling is Executive Producer of You Would! She is majoring in thearte with concentrations in stage managing and acting and minoring in dance. She just started getting involved in film through KVIK in college. Starting through acting, she has moved her way up through the many jobs on the other side of the camera. If she is ever grouchy, just give her coffee and she will love you forever!
Tommy Heffernan - Assistant Executive Producer
Tommy Heffernan is the Assistant Executive Producer of You Would! and has been dabbling in all aspects of making videos since high school. He aims to involve himself in KVIK through writing, directing, producing, editing, and reluctantly, acting, whenever the situation calls for it. He hopes to remain an active filmmaker after school, whether that'll entail anything from moving to LA or to just making movies with friends whenever he can. Tommy will also admit he knows the Double Dream Hands dance and is tagged in several embarrassing Facebook photos decked out in drag.
Roxy Ewing is AS KVIK Coordinator. Has volunteered in KVIK since Fall 2010 and in 2013 she served as Assistant Executive Producer of You Would! and Executive Producer of Fourth Wall Films. She has been making videos since middle school, from sports reels to sketch comedy. She is currently pursuing a degree in creative writing, but will never abandon her true love of film. Roxy also enjoys music, bright colors and dancing badly.
