Founder, Owner, DP
As the founder/owner and vintage DP of Bad Dog Pictures, Tom’s gifts are in production problem-solving and creative solutions. He has seen it all! He has an insatiable desire to discover the latest-of-late equipment and analyze what our clients want or need.
He has a keen eye for what’s developing in technology and he’s a leader in integrating that gear and techniques into his productions.
Ask him about his favorite bourbon.
Head of Production
If you are a producer in St. Louis and you don’t know Derek, then you haven’t had a big production. There are very few production challenges Derek has not had to tackle.
With experience as a Line Producer, AD, Equipment Rental Manager, Producer and Director, Derek has seen all sides of production. You have a production question? He has the answer. You need a shoot organized? He dots every “I” and crosses every “T.” Boasts no job that he’s produced has ever lost money. #TrueFact
Ask him about Kuna meats. Seinfeld.
Although Andy is home-grown, he started his career in New York working at several rental houses after cutting his chops as a PA, grip and electric as well as a bit of audio/video integration. All of this makes him the right guy to help you with all your equipment needs.
Andrew’s favorite things about the rental business; he gets to work and play with all the cutting-edge gear and equipment. His other favorite thing? Helping young filmmakers grow and find success.
Ask him about home theaters.
Anne absolutely loves to be a part of the production world. She fully enjoys seeing projects that she helped pull together for TV, corporate theater and websites.
Whether it’s organizing a large job involving multiple cameras, lighting, and crew, she’s built a great reputation and relationship with her clients in St. Louis and beyond. She says, “when you solve a problem for a client, that’s the best feeling. It’s a good day.”
Ask her who is her favorite client. It could be you.
Kelsey Cissna Ryan
While she does our numbers, she’s quite multi-talented. Kelsey definitely brings both sides of her brain to her endeavors. Her creative side is definitely a plus in our business. I mean, how many accountants do you know who love metal and have tattoo sleeves?
Kelsey expects everyone to be “audit” they can be. Accountant humor.
