Miles Hanon, Director

Miles entered the film industry as an engineer, designing and implementing robust, versatile camera systems for the award-winning media house Compass Arts. There, he applied his technical expertise to film editing, and a new passion was unearthed: storytelling.

Following this new passion, Miles served as editor for the award-winning documentary Beyond the Gates of Splendor and the commercially successful feature End of the Spear. Through these experiences, the cornerstone of Miles’ signature style became increasingly apparent: the fusion of an engineer’s sensibility and a rare, intuitive grasp of story and emotion.

In 2006 Miles founded Story Front and shortly thereafter wrote and directed his first feature film, produced two feature documentaries, and has helped a number of organizations tell their own stories with promos and vision films.

Tom Livingston, Producer

Tom’s career as a filmmaker, video producer, and storyteller has spanned more than forty years. In 1982, he co-founded ProVideo Productions with his business partner Jack Lind. Their creative collaborations include numerous feature documentaries, nationally recognized marketing and public awareness campaigns, and non-profit messaging.

Tom uses documentary storytelling to craft messages for regional, national and international nonprofits and foundations. Included in this body of work are documentaries for Leadership Foundations, Urban Ventures, Kenya Children’s Fund, and the Salvation Army. Crafting story from personal experiences characterize the majority of his film and video work.
