Eye of the Beholder Filmmakers

Documentary

Brian Stillman

Film Producer

X-Ray Films founder Brian Stillman is co-director, co-producer, and the director of photography on the documentary Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons. He’s also the producer, director, and pretty much everything else on the movie Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys (distributed digitally by Gravitas Ventures, and available on Amazon Prime and elsewhere). For the last three seasons, he’s worked as a producer and cameraman on the hit Netflix docu-series The Toys That Made Us. Brian got his start in journalism more than 20 years ago, working for Guitar World, the music magazine Revolver (where he was also managing editor), Future Music, Super 7, and a major metropolitan newspaper that shall remain nameless. He’s also partnered with the progressive political action media group Collective Agency.

When not behind the camera, Brian runs a weekly D&D campaign, and he avidly collects mid-century toy robots and ray guns, screen-used Star Trek props, Captain America ephemera, and original fantasy and science fiction artwork. Feel free to talk to him about any of that stuff. He lives in NYC with his wife, Mary, and their cat, Calamity.

Kelley Slagle

Film Producer

Cavegirl Productions founder Kelley Slagle is co-director, co-producer and editor of the new documentary Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons. She began producing independent films in 2004, including 13 short films and the award-winning fantasy web series The Broken Continent. In 2014, Cavegirl released the award-winning dramedy feature film Of Dice and Men—“a geek movie without the self-loathing”—now available on Amazon Prime. Kelley freelances as a video producer and editor of industrial, training, documentary and narrative content, and is a speaker and educator at various industry events on producing and editing topics. In 2016, she was named a Docs In Progress Fellow, a selective program for emerging DC-area documentary filmmakers.
