As a die hard New Yorker, Liz loathes to admit that she has lived half of her life in San Francisco. But that duality allows her to be a Producer comfortable developing and producing projects of similar opposing spectrums. Ranging from award winning narrative love stories at Sundance to documentary short films on the downside of rapacious capitalism at Philanthropy conferences, Liz has guided all aspects of Kontent projects. Her other full time job includes raising two children, holding down the fort, and making sure (her husband) Mark’s head doesn’t get too big to take out the trash. She’s a bad ass.
Bern is the epitome of the saying, “Still waters run deep.” On the surface, all is calm. Submerged just below, is a whirling dervish of passion, empowerment, and storytelling prowess. A recent graduate of San Francisco State’s Cinema department, Josue has shot, edited, and designed his way to the Kontent lair. Short films, music videos, non-profit fundraisers, live events, you name it. He continues to hone his skills for clients such as Genentech, Global Carbon Initiative, and Plantronics. His mad creative skills are matched by his need for organized project files and efficient technology. Strong and silent types. They're funny that way.
