Julia has received artist-grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, Create Louisiana, The New Orleans Film Society, and various other foundations.

Andy Jacuzzi

Director & Owner

Andy Jacuzzi started out in front of the camera as a professional roller blader when he was 16 years old. Since then he's transitioned to working behind the lens full time, where his passion for traveling, learning, and creating videos with his close friends has led him to start a business to facilitate exactly that. He founded Markham Park to bridge the gap between the talented directors, artists, designers, and musicians in his life to create work bigger than any one of them could achieve or aspire to alone.

Craig Wynn

Director of Photography

Craig is a concept-centered videographer and documentarian specializing in sound imagery, candid injustices, fringe societies, and barren landscapes. When he's not shooting feature films or music videos, you'll probably find him at the local coffee shop, in a back alley, or in the middle of nowhere camped in his beat-up ‘02 Subaru. Lover of all things spicy and opossum-related, he loves to shoot and often does so through immersion with his subject matter.

Weenta Girmay

Producer

Weenta Girmay is a multimedia storyteller. She began her career 7 years ago as a freelance journalist, producing work in print, audio and video formats. Her photography and audio work has been featured in NPR and The Nation Magazine.

Carson Smith

Production Designer

Carson specializes in set building, 3D set extensions, and break away props for film, television, and video games. He's always leaps and bounds ahead of the production team in his preparations and is arguably Markham Park's most valuable asset. When he's not working, you might catch him explaining the design nuances of power drills, helping a friend, or suggesting his favorite Bavarian breweries to tour.
