Maggie Dodson is the writer/creator of "Good Grief." She grew up in Maine, on a long dirt road among pine trees and crustaceans. Currently she lives in Brooklyn with her puppy, Billie Holiday.
The daughter of two writers, Maggie grew up in a household of story-telling. From a very early age she wrote, directed, and starred in her own plays, movies, and Civil War re-enactments. Keeping it all in the family, her brother Jack can attest to her brutal ways on set, her demanding nature, and her "diva-like attitude."
Some of her past films include a re-make of the Mandy Moore video "I Wanna Be With You," filmed in a moldy basement in Topsham, Maine, in Maggie's mother's slip, and a low budget indie-horror film "Don't Scream" that featured her three siblings and their dog, Noah. She is inspired by honesty, well-formed sentences, and gin. Oh! And she'd like to thank her grandmother for no other reason than it is nice to thank your grandmother once in a while. They're the best, aren't they?
Erin Fitzsimmons is a producer and co-director on “Good Grief.” She is Maine native with an unwavering addiction to cheese, hot sauce and the ocean air. Erin studied philosophy at Colby College in Waterville, Maine and went on to pursue storytelling at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine. As lover and admirer of cinema, the adventure of making "Good Grief" has been a dream come true.
In addition to her soft spot for a good Camembert, Erin enjoys brushing her teeth, long necklaces, wild dancing (no partner necessary), and browsing the shelves of her favorite place in the world—Bart and Greg’s DVD Explosion in Brunswick, Maine (it’s worth the trip). She currently lives in Brooklyn.
Kevin Ting is the director of photography for "Good Grief". He hails from Groton, Massachusetts and is a diehard Red Sox, Pats, and Bruins fans (he is ambivalent about basketball). He is a talented photographer and trained in photo and video documentary at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. He is a whiz with a camera and has what most would describe to be a "heart of gold." His other talents include: running backwards, high knees-ing, breaking in a good leather baseball glove, making the perfect Annie's mac & cheese, and high fives. He has a soft spot for Whitney Houston and a smile that can melt hearts. For more Kevin Ting, check out his website www.kevingtingphotography.com
