Film has always been a passion of Sebastian's - from taking Film and Television in high school - to later transitioning from a Bachelors degree in business into a Film one, it has always been a subject on his mind. While his practical experience behind the camera is by no means professional, his understanding of filming techniques, breakdown of plot structure and film trivia focused mind is what sets him a part from his peers.
He serves as the teams film-buff - often bringing in behind the scenes information on each production and using his knowledge of film making to shed light on what we see on the screen.

At heart Kate is two things, a writer - specifically a creative one, which is what lead to her completing her double major in Communication and Arts (Writing), and a television addict. This one is definitely harder to show credentials for, but trust me, she watches a lot of TV shows.
She joined the team late in their first year as an outlet for both her passions and mainly provides comprehensive written reviews of her favorite (or sometimes least favorite) shows, and occasionally Kate will appear in the studio to tear a part a film with the boys.
Favorite TV Shows: Orphan Black, Luther & "an unending love for criminal procedurals".
