Nathan Airhart was raised in a small, Ohio town that didn’t have much time for young men who didn’t care for sports. In middle school and high school, while other boys his age tried out for the football team and watched the Cleveland Indians square off against the New York Yankees, Airhart wrote stories and watched television, eventually realizing that the combination of these two obsessions birthed the career path he wanted to pursue.
After graduating from Jackson High School, Airhart attended Ohio University in the town of Athens, Ohio, for a degree in screenwriting & producing, where he met Josh Dollison, also a screenwriting & producing major.
Airhart is now a Producer's Assistant, having worked on projects such as Tom Swift, Legacies, The Vampire Diaries, Stan Against Evil, Being Mary Jane, and The Last Full Measure.
Recently, Airhart and Dollison have wrapped their fourth film project, a romantic comedy entitled Side Effects.
Josh Dollison grew up in Marietta, Ohio with a passion for storytelling. His love of film and television led him to get a degree in Screenwriting and Producing from Ohio University, where he spent most of his time creating independent student productions.
