Kirk Brillon

Visual Effects Supervisor

A computer science major with a minor in art, Kirk paved his own road into the world of visual effects. A self taught artist and DP, Kirk transitioned from teaching Final Cut Pro in New York to working early forms of pre-visualization with Art Directors for film and television.

Kirk is credited with a series of film and television projects, including The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (2011). the Emmy award-winning series Game of Thrones (HBO), and Neil Jordan’s thrice Emmy-nominated series, The Borgias (Showtime).

His work on the limited series, Alias Grace (Halfire Entertainment/Netflix) earned SpinVFX a Canadian Screen Award nomination. Kirk also served as the Visual Effects Supervisor on Nightflyers (Syfy/Netflix), based on the novella of the same name by George R. R. Martin, which earned a VES Award nomination for the creature, Eris, and Siren S2 and Siren S3 (Freeform).

Nadya Sayre

Author/Ghostwriter

Nadya Sayre is an avid traveler and semi-professional smartass. Whether she becomes professional depends on how the book sells. 

Deciding to listen to the advice ‘write what you know’, this first series encompasses uncomfortable travelling and the stupidity of sibling relationships.

A dual citizen of the United States and Australia, Nadya uses her experiences with travelling and backpacking in her writing. She splits her time between the US and Australia and can occasionally be persuaded to wear shoes.


The Rebels is her first book.
