Sean Akers was formerly a producer at the independent production company Before The Door. He was an associate producer on J.C. Chandor’s debut film Margin Call in 2011, starring Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, and Zachary Quinto, and was co-producer on Chandor’s follow-up feature, All Is Lost, starring Robert Redford. He produced The Banshee Chapter starring Ted Levine, and Dog Eat Dog, a short film by Sian Heder, starring Zachary Quinto and Philip Baker Hall—it’s a modern fable about pet adoption.  Last year, he wrote and published THE SECRETS OF CROWDFUNDING: A Step-By-Step Guide to Getting the Most From Your Kickstarter Campaign.
