Meet Our Founders & TeamFounded by brothers Alan and Jonathan Smith.
Dr. Jonathan Smith
Creative Director, Director of Photography. Graduate of Yale University.
By profession, Jonathan is an epidemiologist. He obtained his Masters Degree at Yale University and his PhD in Epidemiology at Emory University. He learned filmmaking as a means to convey complex global health issues through storytelling, and has won various international awards, most recently by Nobel Peace Laureate Betty Williams.
Creative Director, Producer, Editor. Graduate of University of Gerogia.
Alan has been producing and directing films since 2009. Most notably, the film he produced in Argentina, titled “Story of a Girl”, won the award for best short film in the South Texas International Film Festival. He has won 4 Telly Awards for various health films that he produced and directed for WebMD. He is also a National Geographic-Featured photographer, which doesn’t hurt when it comes to knowing his way around a camera for photographs. Alan gives us the best of both worlds.
Paul received his Masters (with Distinction) in English Literature from DePaul University in Chicago in 2010 and his BA in English Literature with a minor in Creative Writing from Birmingham-Southern College. Paul is a storytelling purist – and since storytelling is the beating heart of Creative Cabin, he makes sure we stay true to our core.
