Ralph’s eclectic interests and creative spirit has taken his career in many directions over the years.  After co-founding a chain of restaurants and a wood-working studio in NYC he started a music label and recording studio in the mid 90’s which segued into the movie business when he purchased a classic movie library containing over 500 classic Hollywood feature films and launched a line of budget DVDs under the branding Treeline Films.  In 2002 he sold that business and co-founded Film Chest Media Group to acquire, license and distribute feature film and TV content.  The Film Chest film library has grown to over 3,000 titles and now conducts business with different clients from all over the world.  In 2012 Ralph acquired an old abandoned warehouse in downtown Bridgeport, CT to headquarters his film operation.   The Bridgeport Film Center provides climate-controlled storage, film scanning, restoration, production, distribution and fulfillment services for his operation. He recently bought an old farm house in Connecticut that he is restoring and is where he now spends his spare time, gardening, reading, playing the piano and watching the night sky.

KRISTIN HOFFMANN - Music Composer/Director

"My goal is to spread love, light, peace and truth into the world through the vehicles of music and energetic frequency."  – Kristin

Starting at the age of 4, ethereal renaissance pop songstress and multi-instrumentalist Kristin Hoffmann began building a prolific career that reads like a lifetime achievement award speech. In addition to stints at major record labels and song placements on hit TV shows like Dawson’s Creek and Palmetto Pointe, she has shared stages with The Wallflowers, Feist, Brandi Carlile and many other musical luminaries. With a strong sense of artistic altruism, she is most passionate about projects that explore music’s healing power and allow listeners to tap into their higher potentials.

Having studied with Sound Healing pioneer Fabian Maman, Hoffmann not only made music to accompany acupuncture sessions but also composed 170 songs for health-challenged children as a writer/producer at non-profit organization Songs of Love. A spokesperson for ocean conservation, she has performed her Song for the Ocean at environmental awareness conventions around the world. In 2011 she became the singer for Bella Gaia, a multimedia immersive theater experience created in conjunction with NASA. Her most recent work includes a self-produced album entitled The Human Compass(2012) and a symphonic collaboration with composer Marco Missinato called Unfolding Secrets: A Symphony of the Heart.
