Born and raised in Los Angeles, BRAD SILVERMAN (Director/Writer) gravitated towards the film and television industry at an early age. In his late teens and into his twenties, Brad was on the fast track climbing the “Hollywood ladder” as writer, director and producer. However, in the mid 90s, the Lord mercifully saved him. Within a couple years, Brad felt compelled to make the toughest decision of his life – walk away from the biz. After an eight year “wilderness” period, in 2004 the door opened for Brad to become staff writer/ director and vice president of production for the newly formed (and Christian owned) Signature Productions. After writing and directing a series of successful programs for kids, in 2007 Signature Productions was incorporated as Coram Deo Studios. The following year, Brad wrote and directed the first feature film for the company, the Christian romantic drama, No Greater Love. Still living in the Los Angeles area, Brad and his wife Hayley work with teens at their church and have four young children of their own.

Matt continued to expand his knowledge of the industry while producing a music video for MTV/VH1, and then a DVD concert series for The United We Funk All-Stars, hosted by Tom Joyner. Matt’s professional career has been marked by pulling together top-notch industry professionals to make every product he does of the highest quality.

In 1990, RUSS RICE (Executive Producer) relocated his family from Michigan to Los Angeles and attended The Masters Seminary for the purpose of going into full time ministry. That same year he opened a school fundraising company to provide for his family while in school. As a full time student, a start-up business owner, and father of a young family, the Lord blessed his diligence. In time, and with a growing company, Russ sensed the call away from full time ministry and into full time business ownership. Pouring all the Biblical values he had learned into his business, the Lord grew Signature Fundraising into one of the largest independent companies of its kind. In 2001 Russ began contracting with film makers to produce videos for the purpose of promoting his company. Again the Lord blessed his efforts as the videos began winning awards and receiving attention from major film and television studios. With such early success, and with an eye for growth, in 2004 Russ started an in-house media division and began employing film makers full time. In a relatively short time, this division grew into a stand alone company, so in 2007, Russ incorporated the division as Coram Deo Studios (Coram Deo: “Living continually in the presence of, under the authority of, and to the glory of God”). After producing a few critically acclaimed programs for kids, in 2009 Coram Deo produced its first feature length film, the Christian romantic drama, No Greater Love. Russ and his wife Carina still live in the Los Angeles area and have five children, of whom the two oldest now work for dad
