BILL MACK: A modern renaissance man, Producer, Technologist, semi-pro Ping Pong Player. Billy was a child actor on Sesame Street, All My Children, and in numerous television commercials. Bill studied Film and Psychology at Yale and, after producing the Student Academy Award winning film, Short Change, he opened a post production house that served his local Harlem community into the early 2000s
Parallel to his life as a filmmaker, Mr. Mack had been a web developer since the late 90's, which may have led to his obsession with table tennis and the ping pong entrepreneurship that followed. Bill co-founded New York’s largest table tennis club, Spin New York, and later, its smallest - Pips, in Brooklyn.
In 2011, Bill teamed up with Ryan Fenson-Hood to found the creative and film production company, Cinomadic, which soon had coopted at least half his ping pong space for sound stage.
Ryan grew up in the mystical Colorado Rockies. Since the tiny Durango College he attended didn’t have a film program he created his own student-constructed major in film. It was the 90s. He gained a reputation for his savvy with tape-to-tape editing and shooting extreme skiing. But Ryan yearned to see the world and soon got into a unique writing and directing program at the Academy for Film and TV, Prague, Czech Republic. There, he shot on 16 mm, edited with flat-bed reel to reel systems, and made his first live-action comedies and dramas.
Post-graduation, and several bootstrapped shorts and documentaries later, Ryan found himself at home in New Orleans where he made a Post-Katrina documentary about jazz after the storm. The film won Best Documentary in the Zurich Film Festival and was playing European network TV about the time Ryan moved to Brooklyn and met Bill Mack. With Bill’s preternatural feel for business and Ryan’s all-consuming addiction to storytelling, the two founded Cinomadic in 2011.
