||John M. Demers, Executive Producer
John M. Demers is an actor and producer. In addition to appearing in front of the camera, including lead roles for several TV
shows produced for the Discovery Channel, John founded Studio in the Woods, Inc. Originally a voice-over only production facility,
Studio in the Woods is now a multi-media production company located in the Apex area of North Carolina.
John just completed a two–year term on the Board of Directors for Media Communication Association International,
(MCAI) (www.mca-i.org) and gives talks on how emerging and new-media technologies can couple with creative grass roots marketing,
the term commonly referred to as product placement. This marriage can deliver financial results for the independent producer and
companies choosing this type of marketing.
Currently John is a faculty advisor to The School of Communication Arts and Piedmont Community College's Film Video and
Production Technology Program. He has served as adjunct faculty at a number of other colleges and higher education facilities such
as UNC-Greensboro and Savannah College of Art and Design. He currently has a number of projects in various stages of development
and production. His “think outside the box, work outside the box, and know when to get back in the box!” philosophy
has served him well.

Crew the Raccoon is mascot of the Peak City Film Festival, but no stranger to performing. From the moment Crew left the forests
of Chatham County to cross over Jordan Lake, involvement in public appearances, even on television, have been mainstays of life. The
public debut of involvement with the Film Festival started with participation in a meeting of the Apex Town council in early August
of 2009, and continues through a series of appearances at venues all around the area. Crew has met many local celebrities at these
appearances and looks forward to meeting the internationally known folks sure to be attracted to visiting Apex during the Peak City
Film Festival. Crew is a natural to be a part of the Peak City Film Festival because, as every producer knows, to make a good film you
need a good crew!
Crew is available to visit your public event to join in the festivities and publicize the Peak City Film Festival.
