David Branin

Writer/Director David Branin grew up near Hartford, Connecticut.  Raised by a single deaf mother, he picked up her skill of observing and reading people.  It wasn't until his college career was almost over that the dream of making a major motion-picture burst into his head. David and three of his closest friends wrote an original screenplay together and moved to Los Angeles in 2000 to pursue their own Hollywood ending. His pursuit of that dream continues to this day.

He is the Director/Writer/Producer of Night Before the Wedding and Co-Host of Film Courage.

His work has been seen by millions online.  His short films, Shoot-Out and Honey, I'm Home have garnered the most acclaim, having combined to screen in over 40 international film festivals while winning their share of awards.

Karen Worden

Actress/Spokesperson Karen Worden co-hosts L.A. Talk Radio's "Film Courage".  At age 18, Karen drove herself and her belongings to Los Angeles from the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue her acting career.  As many an L.A. transplant will do, Karen worked several odd jobs to pay the rent.  Karen's had many interesting work experiences which have further flavored her character. 

Karen's style is earthy with a slight touch of fire (thanks to a combination of a sun in Pisces with a Sagittarius rising for all you astrology buffs), easygoing, intuitive and direct. In hosting the new Internet radio talk show, "Film Courage," Karen seeks to probe industry professionals on their quest for greater things.  Karen's in-depth questioning discovers how individuals overcome the naysayers, along with quieting the harshest of critics - oneself!  She questions industry professionals on their fear of success versus fear of failure, overcoming self-sabotage, and developing one's greatest strengths.

Karen's credits include Honey I'm Home, Road Therapy, Weekend Get Away, Religious Freaks Gone Wild, Mind Over Matter Man, Smoking - The Movie and the latest Night Before the Wedding.  Karen also wrote and starred in a one-woman play showcased at the Space Theatre entitled The Other Woman, as well as being featured in several commercials and print ads.  One of her favorite shoots was working with Richard Simmons on his Sweatin' to the Oldies series.

Night Before the Wedding is written and directed by David
Branin (co-host of LA Talk Radio's 'Film Courage'), the winner of the Audience
Choice Award at Hollyshorts Film Festival with the film "Honey, I'm
Home" in 2007.  This award-winning
film was shown in over 25 international film festivals.  Night Before the Wedding is Branin's first
attempt at a feature film, which turned out to become quite a record-breaking
endeavor.  This became the first
full-length feature to ever premiere at the prestigious Hollyshorts Film
Festival in August this year, a festival that, as its name suggests, is
traditionally where the biggest shorts films in the world are shown.  In addition, the premiere at Laemmle Sunset 5
in Los Angeles was sold out.  His second premiere in Columbus,
Ohio was 80% sold out.  There were many people in Los
Angeles who did not get a chance to see this film, but
we are privileged to be able to screen it in Washington
D.C., which is the second time it has ever
been shown outside Los Angeles.
