Kevin Korn is a composer agent in the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency team. In 2014 he was named one of Variety’s “Hollywood’s New Leaders.” In addition to working with legendary composers at GSA, Kevin is developing a new and diverse generation of film composers, his roster includes Steven Price (Gravity, Suicide Squad, Baby Driver), Jóhann Jóhannsson (Theory of Everything, Sicario), Sarah Schachner (Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Anthem), Ryan Lott aka Son Lux (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, Paper Towns), Eskmo (Billions, 13 Reasons Why), Amie Doherty (Blue Night), and Federico Jusid (Life Itself, Loving Pablo). This year, following the passing of his client, Kevin founded the Jóhann Jóhannsson Foundation, whose mission is to foster and enhance appreciation, education, and achievement in the areas of composition, music, and art around the world. 

Panos Cosmatos is an accomplished director and the son of the greek movie director George P. Cosmatos, director of iconic films of the 80's and 90's, including Tombstone, Cobra, and Rambo First Blood Pt II, and a Swedish experimental artist mother. He spent his formative years traveling all over the globe before settling in western Canada. In 1980, the family lived for a year in Mexico, where exposure to the strange, local interpretations of American pop culture had a profound and lasting effect on his creative life. He obsessed over the minutiae of heavy metal, fantasy art, science fiction, and horror films, which he still does to this day. Panos' first film, Beyond the Black Rainbow, showcased his uniquely singular visual style.
